ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) 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 on Thursday (March 22) 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. She did not press charges against the flour-bomber, who was released without charge, police said. Kardashian, one of the highest-paid reality stars on U.S. television, has been heavily criticized recently by animal rights groups for wearing fur clothing. The incident was captured on video by several of the broadcast outlets covering the event, as well as by an anti-fur activist.
