Kim Kardashian, who recently went to Israel with her family to baptize daughter North West, was edited out of photos posted by an ultra-orthodox Jewish news site because of her status as a ‘pornographic symbol.’
Kim and her husband Kanye West dined with Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat shortly after the baptism ceremony, which was held at an Armenian church. While posting photos of the dinner, news site Kikar HaShabbat completely covered Kim with a receipt (below), while leaving West and Barkat untouched. In another photo, Kim was completely blurred.
The accompanying article did not even mention Kim’s name, but referred to her as ‘West’s wife.’
Kikar HaShabat editor Nissim Ben Haim later told AP that Kim was edited out of the photo because she is a ‘pornographic symbol’ whose actions go against ultra orthodox Jewish values.
