UAE authorities are investigating a center for the disabled after it hosted and publicized a visit by Kim Kardashian West.
According to local newspaper Emarat Al Youm on Tuesday, the investigation focused on Rashid Center for the Disabled not getting prior approval for the visit by Kardashian West.
The report also said that authorities are concerned about T-shirts bearing Kardashian West's image that were being handed out during the Jan. 16 visit.
Last week, Dubai police’s deputy chief Dhahi Khalfan criticized Kardashian’s visit to the emirate.
On Twitter, Khalfan wrote that Dubai “does not need the presence of Kim Kardashian in charity centers. These centers invite good people, and thank God there are many good people.”
In another tweet, directed at Mariam Othman, CEO of the Rashid Pediatric Therapy Center, Khalfan wrote: “Disabled children do not need the likes of Kim Kardashian, but need people who do good things.”
Kardashian also held a make-up masterclass in the city.
