Kim Kardashian isn’t the only celeb to get flour bombed

Kim Kardashian gets antiqued.

Kim Kardashian found herself doused with a common baking necessity as she strutted her stuff on the red carpet last week. Though the perpetrator has not identified the motive behind the flurry of flour, it could be any number of things, we assume: a big, giant phony wedding, making millions by creating a “fake” reality, basically getting famous from a sex tape released by her own mother. Who knows, it could have been anything.

Kim, though, is certainly not the only celebrity to get flour-bombed — or antiqued, as some call it. In fact, Kim shares this honor with several celebrities who have been the victim of the embarrassing prank, both in flour form and pie form.  

1. Paris Hilton. Everyone’s least favorite socialite was on the receiving end of a flour bomb in London during fashion week in 2006. PETA was responsible for this one, probably in protest against fur.

2. Lindsay Lohan. Poor LiLo can’t catch a break. PETA, once again, was responsible for this flour attack as Lohan left a Paris nightclub wearing a black fur coat in 2010.

3. Jonathon Cheban. The unsuspecting Kardashian sidekick was antiqued a few months, reportedly by a Kris Humphries fan — possibly the one thing Cheban can say happened to him before it happened to Kim Kardashian.

4. Ryan Seacrest. The E! host experienced a different kind of antiquing during the last Academy Awards while he interviewed Sacha Baren Cohen dressed as his dictator character General Aladee on the red carpet. Aladee doused Seacrest in what he said were the ashes of Kim Jong-il.

5. Rupert Murdoch. While sitting in on a Parliament hearing following the News Corp. phone hacking scandal in 2011, the most unpopular man in the world was targeted with a shaving cream pie to the face by an angry protester.

6. Fashion guru Calvin Klein found himself at the receiving end of a pie attack on the red carpet in 2001. He wasn’t the intended victim, though — Karl Lagerfeld was.

7. Conservative author Ann Coulter had a double-pie attack during a speaking engagement at the University of Arizona in 2004. The culprits, two men, both missed.
