Kim Kardashian deleted a tweet supportive of Israel on Friday after she received dozens of anti-Semitic tweets from some of her 17 million followers, with a few of them even wishing death upon the reality-television star, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
After Hamas militants launched a rocket attack on Jerusalem in response to Israel's killing of the Hamas military chief, the famous Kardashian star took to her Twitter account and posted: “Praying for everyone in Israel.”
Kardashian was soon slammed with negative responses to her simple sentiment.
Below are just a few examples of such tweets sent to the starlet, per the Hollywood Reporter:
“Israel is not f-ing country!”
“Israel will be destroyed along with all the Jews who cursed RT.”
“You are a disgrace to your people and your ancestors.”
“People like you are the reason I want to die *Palestine.”
“Further enhancing your reputation as a dumb porn star.”
“Kim I love you but please don’t pray for Israel. They are murderers.”
“Woe to Israel and henchmen.”
Some Twitter users went as far as tweeting things such as “kill yourself,” “die in hell,” and “I’ll pray you will die Kim.”
Kardashian quickly tweeted: “And praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!”
But the damage had already been done with the star offending dozens of her followers, which forced her to ultimately delete both tweets.
Kardashian was criticized by commenters on all sides, first for what she wrote, and then for her decision to take down the tweets.
Breitbart.com wrote, “Kardashian learned an ugly truth this week about the Left’s hatred of Israel.”
Atlas Shrugs criticized Kardashian, writing: “Not surprising -- her cowardice mimics the weakness and ignorance of much of her generation. She supported the civilized man, then caved to savages.”
The Hollywood star attempted to explain her actions on her blog, writing: "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."
