Haredi site censored Kim Kardashian from picture

The Haredi anti-women censorship has struck again:
She was in the Holy Land for less than 24-hours Monday, but it was still enough time for mega-celeb Kim Kardashian to cause a mini-scandal and, perhaps for the first time ever, have her photogenic face cropped out of a photo.

As Kardashian; her husband, rapper Kanye West; sister Khloe; and daughter, North West, headed back to their private jet at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport on Tuesday morning, Jerusalem’s mayor, Nir Barkat, found himself in hot water with the ultra-Orthodox Jewish constituents in his city.

“Barkat hosts famous couple in non-kosher restaurant,” read the headline of an article on the ultra-Orthodox news Web site, Hakikar. The article, which slammed the mayor as insensitive for dining in a non-kosher eatery, also ran photos of the mayor chatting with Kanye -- Kim, however, who was sitting next to her husband, appeared to have been blurred out in one image, and in another covered up by a copy of a $600 dinner bill.

The article only referred to her as ‘the wife’ of singer Kanye West.
Geez, I can't say I've ever thought much of Kardashian, but this is just as stupid as some of their other, similar acts of anti-women censorship. And spending time at a non-kosher restaurant also makes a very petty complaint. What if it turns out Barkat at least refrained from eating anything knowingly unkosher on the menu? They can't at least thank him for that? All the Haredi site must want is to gather more negative attention from sources that're hostile to Israel, and cause more embarrassment.

Update: the response the site's editor gave to questions about the censoring is even more disgusting:
Nissim Ben Haim, an editor at the Kikar Hashabat website, said Wednesday they removed Kardashian because she's a "pornographic symbol" who contradicts ultra-Orthodox values.
How dehumanizing can they get? That's an extremely offensive, wicked thing to say about women. The editor should be ashamed of himself.
