Kim Kardashian got flour-bombed on the red carpet while promoting her perfume line at the London Hotel in West Hollywood.

The flour-bomber yelled "fur hag" as she dumped a ziplock bag of flour over Kardashian's head. A rep for PETA swears it wasn't them but applauded the move: "PETA has tried everything from polite letters to public protests, but Kim Kardashian has not been moved by the news that animals are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for real fur garments. Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not."

The flour-bomber was detained and then released. West Hollywood sheriff's deputies took a battery report, but Kardashian didn't want to press charges. Once she dusted herself off and returned to the red carpet, Kardashian laughed it off: "I told my make-up artist I needed a little bit more powder."
