Kim Kardashian Selfie Book: Vandalized by This Random Dude!
A 74-year-old man has been arrested for entering a Connecticut bookstore and publicly vandalizing multiple copies of Kim Kardashian’s “Selfish.”
And we know what you’re thinking:
Really? People still go to book stores?!?
According to the Glastonbury Police Department’s description of the incident on Facebook, Carl Puia entered a Barnes & Noble and started “spreading a red liquid all over some Kim Kardashian books.”
Authorities say that six copies of the books were destroyed in the massacre – and, tragically, none “could be revived.”
The police have gone on to say that Puia actually left a lengthy note (which he took the time to type out) explaining his dislike of Kardashian and “people like her.”
After being booked for the crime, Puia (whose very serious mug shot is posted below) was released on a $ 2,500 non-surety bond.
After being released, Puia spoke to TMZ and explained his motivation for ending the lives of these Kim Kardashian selfie books.
He tells the celebrity gossip site that he witnessed a mother yank away a copy of “Selfish” from her young boy inside this Barnes & Noble location.
He then noted how the book was being displayed on eye level, pretty darn close to the children’s section.
Puia then explains that he asked an employee to move the book (which features many close-ups of Kim Kardashian’s boobs) to a higher shelf.
However, three days later, he returned and it was in the same spot. WTH, he thought?!?
It was at this point that he decided to destroy the books with red liquid.
The act of vandalism allegedly occurred on October 13, but cops only arrested Puia on Monday and charged him with third-degree criminal mischief after he turned himself in.
Puia adds that he doesn’t have some broad agenda. He isn’t religious or even especially conservative. Nor does he have a vendetta against Kim in particular.
He just thinks that material such as the photos that comprise Kim’s selfie book ought to be kept far away from children.
(Please, no one tell Puia about Kim’s Instagram page and the revealing photos on her account. He may try to destroy the entire Internet.)
Kardashian’s book of selfies drew a mixed reaction back when it was released. It only has three stars on Amazon.
We don’t blame Puia for rolling his eyes over a book that simply contains self-portraits of Kim Kardashian.
Heck, we don’t even blame the guy for asking an employee if it can be moved.
But we do not encourage violence here at The Hollywood Gossip. Not even of books.
