Kim Kardashian got herself into hot water with her 16.6 million Twitter followers this week.
The 32-year-old star of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" angered many of her followers on the social network after she posted a couple political tweets regarding conflict in the Middle East.
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."
After the avalanche of death threats and insults, Kardashian tweeted both the tweet about Israel and the one about Palestine, though they are achived here.
The reality star then took to her official blog to set the record straight in a post titled "A Message To You Guys."
"I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and after hearing from my followers, I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize," Kardashian wrote. "I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I posted them. The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didnt choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution. I also pray for all the other people around the world who are caught in similar crossfires."
