Israeli Website Censors Kim K’s Existence Because She’s ‘Pornographic’

An ultra-Orthodox Jewish news site made it seem as if Kim Kardashian doesn’t exist.

Kim and Kanye have been traveling around Israel, and while there, they had a meal with the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat.

Barkat posted a photo of himself and Kimye to his Facebook page.

However, when the news site Kikar HaShabbat posted the photo, it covered up Kim’s image with a photo of a receipt.

Nissim Ben Haim, an editor at the Kikar HaShabbat website, said this was done because Kim is supposedly a “pornographic symbol” who stands in defiance of ultra-Orthodox Jewish values.

The website also refused to refer to Kim by name. Instead, it opted to call her “Kanye’s wife.”

It’s too bad we can’t just cover Kim K with a receipt whenever we want.

Here is the censored photo:
