Kim Kardashian was the victim of a torrent of abuse on Twitter after she posted a controversial pro-Israel message to her followers.
In reference to the ongoing Israel and Palestine conflict, the reality star posted the comment: 'praying for everyone in Israel', but subsequently removed the post after many pro-Palestinian followers of hers became offended and launched a tirade of verbal attacks at her. In an attempt to appease supporters of both countries, Kim then posted: 'praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!' which only seemed to make matters worse. This was also removed but was soon followed by message on her Celebuzz blog entitled 'A Message To You Guys'.
'I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and after hearing from my followers, I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize', she wrote. 'The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didnt choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution.'
