Kim Kardashian is scheduled to travel to the Middle East this weekend, but government officials from Bahrain worked hard to stop that from happening.

The 32-year-old reality star will appear at an opening of a Millions of Milkshakes shop in Riffa, Bahrain, after she makes a stop in Kuwait. But legislators in Bahrain's parliament attempted to push through a resolution this week to prevent Kardashian from coming into the country because of her "bad reputation," the Al-Wasat newspaper reported.

"A group of MPs in today's paliamentary session submitted a proposal to prevent the hosting of American socialite Kim Kardashian, describing her as having a 'bad reputation,' " the newspaper report said. Ultimately, though, the resolution did not move forward.

"Quorum to have the proposal put on the agenda was not met," according to the report.

Though Kardashian's trip centers around the promotional appearance at Millions of Milkshakes, she previously said that she hoped to meet with local leaders to learn about the confict in the Middle East. A Twitter controversy erupted after she posted a couple political tweets regarding conflict in the Middle East on Nov. 16.

Kardashian tweeted that she was "praying for everyone in Israel," and later on she wrote that she was "praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world," according to a report from USA Today.

Her words drew a firestorm of negative comments from some followers, including death threats. Twitter users sent messages to Kardashian with angry comments like, "You are a disgrace to your people and your ancestors, educate yourself" and "further enhancing your reputation as a dumb porn star." Then the more violent messages started rolling in, including remarks like, "please just kill yourself now as everyone clearly hates you after this tweet" and "i hope kanye west is gonnna rape ur f----- mouth till u dieeee."
