"Socialite and hotel heiress Paris Hilton has sparked outrage in the Middle East by opening a new shop in the Saudi Arabian Holy city of Mecca.
Saudis took to Twitter to say Hilton, who once starred in a sex video which went viral on the internet, was `insulting Mecca` - a key site for the world`s 1.2billion Muslims - by opening the branch in Mecca Mall to sell bags and accessories under her name."
New York Daily News
Saudi Arabians have taken to social media to express outrage at the opening of Hilton`s store. The pop diva is the embodiment of the decadence and banality that many Muslims equate with America.
Paris Hilton tweeted: Loving my beautiful new store that just opened in Mecca Mall in Saudi Arabia. I won`t be surprised if in a couple of weeks she will tweet: That`s not hot! Somebody blew up my beautiful new store.
Muslims have a lot of nerve complaining about Hilton`s new business venture when the Holy city of Mecca is bustling with luxury hotels, spas, and high-end stores that cater to the wealthy.
Hilton has 42 of her stores located all over the world; nobody with a smidgen of class should shop at any of her stores, whether it`s located in Mecca, London or New York City.
