Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are pressing criminal charges against a Los Angeles man for criminal battery. Sounds serious, until you find out that what he battered them with was confetti.
The sisters were walking on Melrose in Los Angeles when local street performer Richie the Barber, who was riding his unicycle nearby, spotted them. The clown hurried over and showered them with confetti, according to TMZ.
The two sisters were not amused. They immediately filed a police report, which the police reportedly ignored as frivolous. However, Khloe and Kourtney followed up several days later, indicating that they planned to press charges.
Police then asked Richie the Barber if he intended to harm the women. He said no, according to TMZ: The confetti was meant to congratulate them on their success.
So are the Kardashians overreacting? I would say yes, but that might sound like I am in favor of clown rights, which is definitely not the case. What's more, it could be genuinely scary to have a stranger run up and throw something in your face. Cut that out, clown.
Still, let's hope Kim and Kanye don't have rice thrown at their wedding - Kim's sisters might have them arrested for attempted murder with a deadly weapon.
