On Thursday, as Kim Kardashian was promoting a new perfume at a West Hollywood hotel, an unnamed woman hurled a bag of white powder at her, dousing the reality TV star on the red carpet.
The incident, shown in the E! video below, shows security personnel rushing offscreen and then escorting a woman out of the hotel where the event was held. Several reports say the woman shouted “fur hag” to Kardashian in the video. TMZ said that the powder was cooking flour.
Considering the stunt, Kardashian managed to be in a decent mood afterward. ”That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me,” she told E! Online. ”Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there.”
“Luckily, she didn’t get me too bad,” Kardashian added. According to the Associated Press, she declined to press charges and the woman was later released.
