(Newser) – Kim Kardashian blogged about having "such a fun day in Bahrain" over the weekend, but apparently the feeling was not mutual. Moments before she opened a Millions of Milkshakes branch in the country Saturday, more than 50 protesters denounced her presence there, the AP reports. The hardline Islamic protesters chanted, "God is great" near the store, but were cleared before Kardashian arrived—thanks to riot police with tear gas.
