Paris Hilton Blocked From Entering Japan

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Paris Hilton’s entry into Japan has been delayed by immigration officials there.

It’s not clear if they’ll let her into the country. She pleaded guilty yesterday to a misdemeanor drug charge in Los Angeles.

Her spokeswoman says Hilton was stopped by immigration authorities upon her arrival.

She’s supposed to appear at a news conference tomorrow in Tokyo to promote her fashion line. The event has apparently been canceled.

Japan’s Kyodo news agency says the immigration office at Narita Airport questioned Hilton “for hours” to determine if she should be allowed to enter the country. It says they then asked Hilton to stay at a hotel in the airport so they could continue immigration procedures tomorrow.

Under Japanese law, immigration authorities are empowered to deny entry to those who have been convicted of drug-related offenses.

    Perhaps if there are enough incidents like this – and hotels, nightclubs and now even countries – where America’s celebutards are banned and unwanted, our press will get the hint and stop talking about them. Yes, Paris, yes, Lindsay… I’m talking about YOU.

    Finally, it took a COUNTRY to refuse her entry to show that there is a system of justice fora person lying and criminal activities. What a slap in the face to our American judicial system because of their lack of real enforcement of penalties to celebrities and only to joe public. Hey Paris, Karma is a B*tch.

    She’s special and needs to be treated like a VIP….not! Keep her out of Japan. Maybe she’ll learn a thing or two.

    I’m tossed here I don’t know who I dislike more Paris or japan. However even though Im not a japan fan good for them. At least they are not star struck. Make her pay kick her out.

    I always wonder if Paris and millions like her who also use drugs casually ever stop to consider how they are personally responsible for the 28,000+ dead in Mexico because of the demand they create? Or the US border patrol and police officers and agents killed in the line of duty fighting their “recreational” use? Or people permanently maimed or disabled because of the profits involved in drug dealing and getting the product sold in the US? Gives a whole new dimension to the term “recreational.”

    Perhaps she should change her name to Marie Antoinette Hilton.
