It’s not often that I agree with anything Kim Kardashian does, but today it was announced that Kim has decided to press charges against the woman who flour-bombed her.
The back story is that Kim was flour-bombed because she wears fur and the woman who flour-bombed her is against the wearing of fur. Peta has announced that it will finance the legal defense of the flour bomber, I presume because they want to encourage people to continue this practice.
I am certain you agree that individuals should not be allowed to walk up to celebrities and assault them, with anything. The fact that Kim was hit with something harmless is not the point. It could have been acid. You wouldn’t approve if someone did something like this to your child, for whatever reason.
Obviously, Kim is not a child, but she is a celebrity and, like it or not, we want to know everything we can about celebrities. That’s why we buy celebrity magazines and look at celebrity-related news and blog sites. This is why step and repeats exist. We want to see their pictures. We want to know what they’re wearing or the size of the engagement ring.
The minute we allow assault and battery to occur upon celebrities, by any means or of any substance, we have changed the way celebrities behave or, worse, they begin to hide from public view.
This woman should be prosecuted. A fine will cause no harm since Peta is going to fund her entire defense, so this woman needs to go to jail. Whether you believe in wearing furs or not, whether you hate Kim Kardashian or what she stands for or not we, as a society, simply cannot allow this type of thing to continue.
There are all kinds of causes we believe in out there and for nearly every human, there’s a different cause. This country is founded upon the principles of freedom of speech. It is not founded upon the principles of trying to sway people or influence people by assaulting others. The rule of law is that your right ends where my nose begins. Keep your distance. State your piece.
