Kim Kardashian - Kim Kardashian's Visit To Bahrain Prompts Protest

Police officials were forced to use tear gas to control a crowd of Islamics protesting reality star Kim Kardashian's visit to the Kingdom of Bahrain on Saturday (01Dec12).

The fashion designer was in town to open a new branch of dessert shop franchise Millions of Milkshakes, but not all residents welcomed her with open arms - more than 50 demonstrators gathered outside a shopping centre near the capital of Manama to picket her presence.

One activist referenced her infamous sex tape with a sign which declared, "None of our customs and traditions allow us to receive stars of porn movies."

Riot police were then called in to contain the area and clear the angry mob before the Tv beauty's arrival, according to the Associated Press.

It appears the incident didn't put a damper on Kardashian's trip - in a post on Twitter.com, she wrote, "Thanks Sheikh Khalifa for your amazing hospitality. I'm in love with The Kingdom of Bahrain".
