TV's Kim laughs off floury fur protest

REALITY television star Kim Kardashian laughed off being pelted with a flour-bomb while stepping out to promote her new fragrance.

THE star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was on the red carpet in West Hollywood when an unidentified woman ran up behind her and emptied a bag of white flour over her head, shouting what appeared to be "fur hag".

The woman was briefly detained and Kardashian (31) left the event, but returned 10 minutes later in an identical outfit with no trace of flour.

"That is probably the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me...I said to my make-up artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there," Kardashian joked in an interview.

She did not press charges against the flour-bomber, who was released without charge,

Kardashian's sisters Khloe and Kourtney were less forgiving as they took to Twitter to voice their outrage.

"Classy to flour bomb my sister at her charity event helping women," said Kourtney.

Kim Kardashian has been heavily criticised recently by animal rights groups for wearing fur clothing.
