Kuwait goes crazy for Kim Kardashian

rget Sandy and Katrina; it was hurricane Kim that swept Kuwait over the past few days.

As seen on fan footage and in images uploaded to social media sites, Kuwaitis went crazy for Kim Kardashian during her recent visit to the Gulf country.

The U.S. reality TV star was in the country to launch her milkshake franchise "Millions of Milkshakes" and her clothing line at the local branch of Dorothy Perkins.

Prior to her public appearance, the U.S. ambassador had his opportunity to "keep up with the Kardashian" as the two were seen in what seemed to be quite a formal meeting which left the American media wondering what was on the agenda.

Kim is on a Middle East tour which invloves Bahrain and Kuwait and has recently been the center of some controversy due to what were seen as political tweets during the recent Israeli-Gaza conflict.

Karadashian arrived to Bahrain Saturday and upon arrival she tweeted saying, "I just got to Bahrain! OMG can I move here please? Prettiest place on earth!" SHOW MORE
