Kim Kardashian’s little sis, Khloe, is definitely a fighter, willing to go to bat for any cause she believes in. It’s this strict desire to stick to a core set of principles that makes Khloe so likeable, even when she can get a little intense. She showed this fervor once for outspoken animal rights group PETA, when she chose to go naked for their ant-fur campaign back in 2008. Now, due to one flour-bombing incident, Kardashian is rescinding that support.
After hearing the news that PETA would absolutely pay for the legal fees of Christina Cho, the woman that flour-bombed her sister at an event last week, as well as lying about having any connection with the woman, Kardashian has pulled out from supporting PETA. She spoke out today via her blog to explain, while she and her sister may disagree on the issue of fur, Khloe found Cho’s move to be extremely distasteful and without warrant.
“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.”
She went on to say that she will certainly not wear fur, but her actions in no way will be oriented with a group she finds to rally around bullying innocent bystanders.
” 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.”
I wonder if she regrets getting naked for the group at this juncture, or if she feels the message still stands? Maybe there is an "I'd rather go covered in flour, than be a bully" ad campaign in there somewhere...
