Kim Kardashian Edited Out Of Israel Photos By Ultra-Orthodox Jewish News Site Because She’s “Pornographic Symbol”
An ultra-orthodox Jewish news site edited Kim Kardashian out of two photos recently taken in Israel. As Gossip Cop reported, Kardashian, Kanye West, their daughter, and Khloe Kardashian traveled to the country on Monday, where they had North baptized in an Armenian church.
After the ceremony, Kardashian and West shared a meal with Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat, after which pictures emerged showing the group dining together. But when the website Kikar HaShabbat posted the pictures, one was photoshopped to show an enlarged receipt completely covering Kardashian. In a second photo, the reality star is entirely blurred. West, however, remained visible, sitting next the to mayor.
The site’s article also doesn’t refer to Kardashian by name, but instead says “West and his wife.” The piece also criticizes the mayor for sharing a meal with the couple at a non-Kosher restaurant, though the holy city has far more Kosher establishments. Sources, however, told the outlet that Barkat didn’t actually eat the non-Kosher food at the restaurant.
So, why was Kardashian not shown in the two pictures? Editor Nissim Ben Haim tells the Associated Press that Kardashian is a “pornographic symbol” who goes against traditional ultra-Orthodox values. What do you think of the decision?
