Khloe Kardashian has severed all ties with animal rights group PETA following reports that the woman who attacked her sister Kim Kardashian with a flour bomb last week is allegedly linked to the organization.
Kim was walking down the red carpet at an event to promote her new fragrance line last Thursday night (Mar 22) when a random woman came out of nowhere and dumbed a bag of flour all over her head and shouted “Fur hag!” at her.
PETA has repeatedly denied any connection to the stunt, however according to TMZ, the woman who attacked Kim is a major PETA activist with a history of staging anti-fur demonstrations.
Now Khloe — who famously posed for PETA back in 2008 for their “I’d Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur” campaign — is saying that she does NOT want to support an organization that condones bullying, especially when it comes to her sister.
Khloe posted the following statement to her official website:
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.
