Kim Kardashian receives death threats over pro Israel tweets

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian was forced to delete a tweet in support
of Israel after she received dozens of anti-Semitic tweets and death

After Hamas militants launched a rocket attack on Jerusalem in
response to Israel's killing of the Hamas military chief, the
31-year-old took to her Twitter account and posted, "Praying for
everyone in Israel."

Kardashian soon faced a barrage of negative responses from some of her
17 million followers, the Hollywood Reporter said.
"You are a disgrace to your people and your ancestors," a follower
tweeted, referring to her Armenian origin.

"People like you are the reason I want to die Palestine," another said.

Others tweeted, "Kill yourself", "Die in Hell," I will pray you will die kim."

"Further enhancing your reputation as a dumb porn star."

Within minutes, Kardashian followed it up with a tweet reading, "And
praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world."
The socialite immediately took down the tweets and released a
statement on her website about the situation.

"I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two
tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and
after hearing from my followers, 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," Kim said.

"I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I
posted them. The fact is that regardless of religion and political
beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didn't
choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution. I
also pray for all the other people around the world who are caught in
similar crossfires," she added.
