An Israeli ultra-Orthodox Jewish news website that reported on Kim Kardashian's visit to Jerusalem cropped her image out of the photos accompanying the story.

The original photo showed the 34-year-old reality star and her husband Kanye West with Jerusalem's Mayor Nir Barkat, but the website put Kardashian behind a restaurant receipt in one snap and blurred her in another, the CBS News reported.

Nissim Ben Haim, an editor at the Kikar HaShabbat website, said they removed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star because she is a pornographic symbol who contradicts ultra-Orthodox values.

In an article chiding Barkat for dining with them at a non-kosher restaurant, Kardashian, whose daughter North was baptized in Jersualem recently, was referred to as West's wife.
