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", according to a local newspaper.
Thousands of fans, who had paid up to 500 Bahraini dinars ($1,360) a ticket, broke into hysterical screams as the 32-year-old celebrity launched the Millions of Milkshakes franchise inside the mall.

For the first time in my life, I can understand the Muzzies point of view.
“milkshake” franchise???? So many jokes - so little time...
Why? I don’t like Kim Kardashian but this is the 21st century not the 7th century.
“Thousands of fans, who had paid up to 500 Bahraini dinars ($1,360) a ticket,”
I’m not going to waste my time reading the article, but just what, exactly, does she do?
A not so oldie, but still goodie.
While Jenner was in Jeddah.
Hamad Mohammed is reporting for Rooters? Why am I not surprised?
Has anyone pointed out that he has ham in his name?
Come to think of it, so does Mohammed.
an actress??? she wishes
I have to side with the Muzzies on this one though.
As Republic of Wadiya’s dictator said “She’s much too hairy”
This is our main contribution to world culture....the Kardashians.
We are so screwed.
It’s too bad. If she didn’t have such a large ass and slept with so many men with large penii and larger wallets, she might be more desirable.
OMG... why do these stupid people have fans??
They don't mean what we think. They're muzzies. For them, having a "bad reputation" just means you're a woman.
I detest Kim Kardashian. Let s say she was setting up shop in my hometown. Would you object if I protested? (I wouldn't, but just for argument's sake.)
But even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Opening a milkshake franchise, check.
She is famous for being well known.
This is a great dilemma, no? The Libs in Hollywodd are the first to call for tolerance and sympathy for the Muzzies but, those same Libs would the first to have their heads cut off by same Muzzies because of their “bad reputations”
“Thousands of fans,” and “about a hundred Sunni Salafists.” It sounds as if Kim is a success in Bahrain.
This whole thread makes me want to go to Chick-Fil-A for a milkshake, but the feeling will pass.
