Kim Kardashian has experienced plenty of shade before, but this is on another level.

The E! star and hubby Kanye West joined Mayor Nir Barkat for a meal during their stop in Jerusalem, but when an ultra-Orthodox Israeli website covered the outing, they chose to cover Kim's image in the photo of the trio with a receipt from the dinner and wouldn't even refer to her by name in the article. Instead, she was merely referenced as "West and his wife."

So, why the major diss?! Nissim Ben Haim, an editor at the Kikar HaShabbat website, explained on Wednesday they removed the 34-year-old because she is a "pornographic symbol" who contradicts ultra-Orthodox values.

Furthermore, the article on the matter states, "Within the insular Ultra-Orthodox community, pictures of women often aren't shown out of modesty."

The Kikar HaShabbat website also went in on the mayor in the Kim Kardashian-less article for dining at a non-kosher restaurant.

The article translates to, "Insensitive: Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and his wife last night hosted Kanye West and his wife, who are visiting Israel at a [non-kosher] restaurant in the capital without considering the majority of city residents who keep kosher."
The website quotes sources involved in the visit as saying that the mayor did not eat [non-kosher] food, adding, "it was the meal that was served to the [non-Jewish] guests."
Among the food items purchased, according to the picture of the receipt, the group dined on Chilled Pea Soup, Carpaccio, lamb, polenta, buttered chicken au gratin, hamburger and lemonade.

A source recently told E! News that Kanye and the mayor talked about Israel and some of the beautiful and historic things to do in the Holy Land while at dinner. The famous family was really nice to anyone that greeted them inside the restaurant and outside.

Kanye loved the food, and they all wanted to try all different dishes from the menu.

On Monday, Kim had her 1-year-old daughter North West baptized at St. James Cathedral in the Armenian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. A source tells us the religious ceremony was ‘'so special.''
