Khloe Kardashian Withdraws Support Of PETA Following Flour Attack On Sister Kim
Khloe Kardashian has a major bone to pick with PETA. Although the reality TV star has been a staunch supporter of the animal rights organization in the past (she’s appeared on several of their billboards), the sight of her sister getting flour bombed last week pushed her over the edge. As we previously told you, Kim Kardashian was walking the red carpet at a launch party held for her new fragrance True Reflection at West Hollywood’s London Hotel last Thursday when a woman approached her and dumped a bag of flour over her head. Following the incident, PETA denied any affiliation with the woman, but it has since emerged that the woman is a major PETA activist with a history of anti-fur protesting. Unsurprisingly, Khloe has announced via her blog that she is withdrawing her support of PETA because of the revelation. Check out Khloe’s entire statement below:
“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.”
Where has Khloe been the last several years??? PETA is notorious for these antics, and this is far from the first time that someone from PETA has attacked a celebrity with flour. I guess it takes something to hit close to home before someone has a change of heart.
