Last night, “an unidentified woman” flour-bombed Kim Kardashian at a red carpet event in Hollywood. Paramedics were called to the scene as a precaution, but the only things injured were her hair, clothing and makeup. Kim refused treatment and instead made a joke: “I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there.” Bada-boom! Hotel security detained the feisty flour-bomber, but released her after Kim declined to press charges. She’s so magnanimous, that one. We’re glad she wasn’t harmed. Kim isn’t the only celeb who has survived a public “bombing” (I’m talking, of course, about bombs made out of non-hazardous materials). Click through to see some more celebrities who got bombed.
Ryan Seacrest: Ash Bomb
Always expect the unexpected from Sascha Baron Cohen. His alter ego, Admiral General Aladeen got Ryan Seacrest good on the red carpet at this year’s Oscars. Aladeen ash-bombed Seacrest with the so-called remains of the late Kim Jon-Il.
Mitt Romney: Glitter Bomb
Presidential candidate Mitt Romney recently endured a glitter bomb at a Minnesota rally. Natch, he pretended like it was a sign of good will. “Hey listen you guys, I’m delighted to be here with you, this is an exciting time, I’m happy for the celebration. This is confetti! We just won Florida!” he said in response to the bomb. His bomber wasn’t actually congratulating him, he was protesting his father’s deportation to Colombia. Oh, denial.
Rick Santorum: Glitter Bomb
Rick Santorum has also been the recipient of a glitter bomb. Following his third place finish in the South Carolina primary, members of the Occupy Charleston movement hit him with a rainbow explosion. For the record, I prefer One Tiny Hand’s version of this picture.
Lindsay Lohan: Flour Bomb
A lesson to Lindsay Lohan, don’t wear a fur stole to a Paris nightclub if you don’t want to get flour-bombed. Especially if there are PETA activists around. This was back in 2010. Lindsay has much bigger problems to rise to above now.
Paris Hilton: Flour Bomb
The same thing happened to Paris HIlton at London Fashion Week in 2006. She was showered with flour at an after-party. PETA was hoping a little flour would help Paris rise to occasion and forsake fur forever.
Justin Bieber: Bottle Bomb
At a Jingle Ball concert in Sacramento, poor J-Biebs got bombed by a water bottle. The aim was dead on and it pelted him in the head. That just makes no sense. What was message there? “Ow, that didn’t feel good,” was all the teen idol said.
Tom Cruise: Water Bomb
It wasn’t the finest moment for Tom Cruise when a British interview squirted him in the face during a red carpet interview. The microphone was a squirt gun. Tee hee. Actually, Tom didn’t find it funny … at all. Which kind of made the whole thing funnier.
Anna Wintour: Pie Bomb
In 2005, Anna Wintour got a tofu pie in the face at Paris fashion week. PETA was proud to claim responsibility for the tasty tart. Yum.
Arnold Schwarzenegger: Egg Bomb
Arnold got egged during his 2003 Governator campaign. A little egg didn’t stop Arnold though. He responded to the egg-bomb by cracking (get it … cracking) a joke: “This guy owes me bacon now,” he responded.
