PETA Names Kim Kardashian A “Celebrity Grinch”
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are capping off 2011 with the first annual Celebrity Grinch Awards, naming Kim Kardashian as their first recipient.
The animal rights organization is not only “honoring” Kardashian for her penchant for wearing real fur, they’re snapping at her personal life choices also:
“Some have speculated that Kim Kardashian’s wedding to NBA forward Kris Humphries was fake. Too bad the socialite princess doesn’t have the same enthusiasm for faking her fur. Unlike her sweet sister Khloe, who starred in her own PETA anti-fur ad, Kim just can’t seem to divorce herself from fur and say ‘I do’ to a kind and compassionate wardrobe.”
“Kim knows that animals on fur farms are beaten, electrocuted, and often skinned alive,” PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange wrote in a statement on their website. “We’ve explained it to her, and she’s watched a video expose that was filmed inside fur farms. When Kim is ready to put an end to her relationship with fur, PETA will be happy to take her discards and donate them to the homeless.”
Janet Jackson is another recipient of a Celebrity Grinch Award, mostly for her recent collaboration with mink-heavy clothing line Blackglama. PETA didn’t mince words when it came to the music legend’s choice of wardrobe:
“When Janet Jackson had her infamous “wardrobe malfunction” during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own—unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career). Ms. Jackson, you’re just plain nasty.”
