Kim Kardashian is heading abroad!
The reality star is about to embark on a trip to Kuwait and Bahrain with the intent on educating herself on the Middle East crisis (while she’s in town on business).
Kim initially agreed to make the trip to support her partnership with Millions of Milkshakes, who has shops opening in the two countries. After catching herself in the middle of a Twitter controversy surrounding comments she made about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, she’s telling friends she’s determined to educate herself about the political situation in the area. Here’s what happened…
Kim Kardashian is APOLOGIZING for “offending” some of her followers by tweeting about the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
Kim says she wants “own up” for publishing two tweets — the first read, “Praying for everyone in Israel.”
A short time later, she added, “Praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!”
Kim later deleted both the tweets — and issued the following explanation:
“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.”
The statement continues, “I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I posted them. 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. I also pray for all the other people around the world who are caught in similar crossfires.”
Kim reportedly wants “to be as informed as possible…so she can use her celebrity to help those in need and raise awareness about important issues in the area.”
According to TMZ, Kim has already set up meetings in both countries with local leaders.
Here are some new pictures of Kim filming her E! show in Miami, Florida (where the Kardashian sisters received Keys to the City – in North Miami!).
