Kim Kardashian Reportedly Will Press Charges Over Flour Bomb

Kim Kardashian has been a mix of emotions since she was unceremoniously flour bombed outside a combination fragrance launch and charity event earlier this week. After retreating to clean up, the reality star headed back into the event and later told the media sheíd laugh the situation off and not push it any further. After a good nightís rest however, Kardashian began waffling in her vow not to press charges. Yesterday, she decided to give the matter some serious thought, and today, sheís apparently decided to move forward and try to have her attacker prosecuted.
According to TMZ, Kardashian doesnít want to send the message that itís okay to scare or hurt someone in order to further oneís beliefs, and as such, she will meet with authorities over the next couple of days to have formal charges brought. Given the relative lack of damage to the model, itís unlikely her mystery assailant, described as a short Asian woman, will receive anything more than a slap on the wrist, but still, going to court and getting chewed out by a judge isnít exactly most peopleís definition of a good time. That process in and of itself will probably be enough to dissuade the attacker. Plus, itís not like the court would be willing to laugh off a second fur protest-related offense.
Itís within Kardashianís rights to press charges here. Iím sure the attack was very frightening in the moment, and I get why a message should be sent. That being said, I think she should probably reconsider publicly stating sheíll drop something in the future if itís possible she might reconsider. The waffle is never a good look on anyone.
