Kim Kardashian flour bomb: Kardashian attacked on red carpet

A woman was detained briefly at a Hollywood hotel after throwing a bag of flour at Kim Kardashian, People and E! News says.

Kardashian was appearing at Hollywood's London Hotel to promote her new fragrance when police say a woman tossed a plastic bag full of flour at the socialite.

TMZ has video of the incident, in which the woman is seen calmly walking up behind Kardashian on the red carpet and dumping the bag of flour on her.

Photos show Kardashian covered nearly head-to-toe with the flour. The "flour bomber" was released without being charged.

"I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there," she told E! News.

Kardashian doesn't plan to press charges, the Associated Press reports. In fact, she told Reuters that she laughed the entire incident off.

Reuters says the woman who dumped the flour on her appeared to have yelled "fur hag." Kardashian has come under scrutiny from animal rights groups for wearing fur.

Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not," a PETA spokesperson told TMZ.
