Kim Kardashian was attacked at a red carpet event last night when an unidentified woman "flour bombed" her on a red carpet. According to The Los Angeles County Sherriff's Department, a woman allegedly threw white powder on Kim in the lobby of the London Hotel in West Hollywood. How did Kim react to the shocking attack? With dignity and class.
Deputy Peter Gomez told The Associated Press that Kim said she did not want to press charges against the woman. While the woman was detained by hotel security, Kim simply returned to her room, removed the powder from her hair and clothing and returned to the event!
An eyewitness tells OK!, "Kim handled the situation very well and with much poise. She was very calm and I was very impressed by her actions."
Kim then focused attention back on the event and the launch of her new fragrance, True Reflection by Kim Kardashian and the Dress for Success charity.
Well done, Kim!
Kim spoke with E! News after the incident, who is very familiar with flour-bombing attacks. At the 2012 Oscars, E! News host Ryan Seacrest was "flour-bombed" with fake ashes by Sacha Baron Cohen (aka The Dictator).
"That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me," Kim told E! News after the incident. "Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there."
Even though Kim handled the incident with extreme class, her sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian supported her on Twitter.
"I wish I was with my sister tonight. I bet you that woman wouldn't have dared tried a thing…" Khloe wrote.
Kourtney added, "Classy to flour bomb my sister at her charity event helping women. I wonder if they would have dared thrown the flour at my hormonal and pregnant self!"
Are you impressed with how Kim handled the attack?
