Some say the Holy City might not be the most fitting locale for hotel heiress, socialite and home-pornography star Paris Hilton's newest storefront.
When Hilton announced that her new store in Saudi Arabia's Holy City of Mecca opened its doors, she sparked outrage through social media channels, according to the New York Daily News.

Most were more offended than excited.
"Wahhabis at work! Historic religious sites in Medina are being destroyed, while Paris Hilton opens a new store in Mecca mall," tweeted one respondent. "So Paris Hilton opened a handbag store in Mecca? The world is a corrupt place at the moment. Someone please send me to Mars," tweeted another.
However, some did view Hilton's Mecca store merely as an example of capitalism, according to Al Arabyia News. »
