Not so tweet: Gaza Twitter turnaround sees death threats for Kim Kardashian
US socialite and reality TV star Kim Kardashian has suffered for taking the “wrong” side in the Middle East conflict during the recent upsurge of fighting between Israelis and Palestinians.
Earlier this week, the 32-year-old bombshell tweeted to her followers, estimated at over 16 million, that she was “praying for everyone in Israel.”
Her comment provoked an avalanche of outrage and death threats, as one of her followers wrote “further enhancing your reputation as a dumb porn star“, while another added she is “a disgrace to your people and your ancestors, educate yourself.”
About five minutes after her first tweet, Kardashian backtracked, adding that she was actually ”praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!” However, this served to unleash a new tirade of angry tweets and death threats.
According to Twitchy.com, which collects and archives deleted tweets, the brunette eventually deleted both of her comments, in favor of Israel and then pro-Palestine. As one of her followers remarked: “she takes back her tweets faster than her marriages!”
