Kim Karda$hian visits Bahrain. Pours milkshakes. Enjoys scenery. Promotes tourism. No problems there then?

RYOT NOTE: With great power, comes great responsibility. That’s what people like Kim Kardashian sometimes don’t understand. Something as seemingly innocent as a tweet can actually help perpetuate human rights atrocities. In addition to investigative journalists like Amber, the world needs organizations to help keep people informed about atrocities all over the world. Human Rights Watch is one of the best. They’ve extensively documented the human rights abuses in Bahrain and are urging the world to take action. You can support their work by donating today, or by sharing this story.
