Presented (mostly) without comment

November 19, 2012

Paris Hilton has opened a shop in Mecca. Yes, that Mecca. Yes, that Paris Hilton.

Foreign Policy explains:

Paris Hilton, darling of tabloid papers and the star of a notorious sex tape, has opened a new store in the most bizarre of locales: the Islamic holy city of Mecca. What could go wrong?

“Loving my beautiful new store that just opened at Mecca Mall in Saudi Arabia!” Hilton tweeted on Nov. 14, causing disgruntled tweeps to engage in a heated discussion about the implications of the starlet’s decision to open her store in a city that is considered the holiest site in Islam.

“R u kidding?” was one person’s response, while others commented on the absurdity of such a controversial female celebrity marketing her goods in a country where women aren’t permitted to drive cars.

Oy.
