Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian has announced she is quitting PETA. She reportedly made this decision after finding out Christina Cho, the woman responsible for the Kim Kardashian flour bombing, has very close ties to the organization. Khloe Kardashian, who does not wear fur, has previously starred in “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” nude PETA anti-fur advertisements.
Although Khloe Kardashian is decidedly anti-fur, unlike Kim Kardashian, that does not mean the Khloe & Lamar star approves of someone flour bombing her sister for wearing animal skins. Khloe Kardashian announced Monday she would be cutting all ties with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals after discovering their association with the woman responsible for the Kim Kardashian flour bombing incident.
Not only is the woman an active and vocal PETA activist, but PETA has reportedly offered to pay the woman’s legal fees if Kim Kardashian decides to press charges against her for the flour bombing attack.
Read on for the full Khloe Kardashian PETA statement:
“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.”
We do have to ask, as others already have, if Khloe Kardashian was really unaware that PETA has fully supported and even directly engaged in such attacks against others in the past — not just with flour, but with fake and real blood thrown on people who wear fur, even if they weren’t wearing it at that particular time? Why exactly would you support the organization previously even though they had done this in the past, and only decided to quit now because OMG someone associated with the organization did it to your sister this time? Does “bullying” only apply if it is against a Kardashian?
