Kim Kardashian in Bahrain: a tale of two media genres
- entertainmentWant to know how things went during Kim Kardashian’s trip to launch her milkshake chain in Bahrain? GlobalGrind has you covered: "The 32-year-old reality starlet… made her way to the middle of the desert to visit some camels. It doesn’t look like she took a ride on any of them but at least she attempted to engulf herself in the culture. And, we don’t blame her, she was a little homesick, missing her man Kanye West. …Kim has gotten a lot done overseas as she even visited a cancer patient in the Middle Eastern country. …It looks like the Kardashian hype has gone completely international!"
- mainstreamOkay, okay, maybe not completely covered. Per Reuters: "Television celebrity Kim Kardashian brought out screaming fans, angry Muslim hardliners and police throwing stun grenades on Saturday when she visited Bahrain to launch a milkshake franchise, witnesses said. About 100 Sunni Salafists demonstrated with banners outside The Walk Bahrain, an upmarket mall in the capital Manama, after some MPs tried to block the visit over what they called her "bad reputation"… Witnesses said police dispersed the demonstrators with stun grenades as the inauguration proceeded inside. There were no reports of casualties." source
