Paris Hilton Incites Outrage After Opening Handbag Store in Mecca
While Kim Kardashian has been busy riling up the public with a few well-intentioned remarks about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Paris Hilton has been causing some drama of her own in the Middle East.
The former reality star is facing some serious backlash in Saudi Arabia for opening a new handbags and accessories store.
“Loving my beautiful new store that just opened at Mecca Mall in Saudi Arabia,” she tweeted last week.
Since the shop’s grand opening, Paris has been hit with tweets and blog comments alike exclaiming that someone of her character has no place in a holiest Muslim city.
“How can someone who made such a video open a store in the holy city next to the Grand Mosque?” one Twitter user wrote.
“It is not acceptable to have such a woman open her store here,” wrote another.
This is the fifth store that Paris has opened in Saudi Arabia, with a total of 42 stores in her name worldwide.
