Khloe Kardashian gives PETA THE BOOT
After her sister Kim Kardashian was recently flour-bomb at an event promoting her new fragrance, baby sis Khloe Kardashian has decided to cut all ties with the group PETA. Khloe teamed up with the organization back in 2008, and did an ad campaign for the their "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign. At first, PETA denied any ties to the flour-bomb attacker, but it turns out the attacker is actually a member of the group who has once received an award for her work. After Khloe found out the woman was affiliated with the organization, she wrote on her blog:
Hi dolls. I’m sure you all heard what happened to Kim last week (thank you SO much for the love and support you all showed her), and I just received word that the woman responsible has very close ties to PETA, despite PETA publicly stating otherwise. Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behavior. I’ve been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me. As you all know, I don’t condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions — I personally don’t wear fur but that doesn’t mean I am going to force my views on anyone else, ESPECIALLY by violating them. I am a very proud sister right now, because Kim handled last week’s incident like a champ. She got cleaned up and was back out there in a matter of minutes. Go Kimmie!
We all need to practice what we preach. I will still continue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer support PETA. Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won’t be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise.
PETA responded to Khloe's remarks:
"We appreciate that Khloe will remain on the animals' side by not wearing fur – that's what counts," the organization said in a statement, obtained by People. "If one of our volunteers is responsible, it doesn't alter the fact that no animal deserves to be electrocuted, shot, or poisoned for a bit of fur clothing. Khloe is just defending her sister, and we know she has a good heart, so we wish her well. We just wish she also had more influence on her sister."
