The fallout from Kim Kardashian’s flour bomb continued into today. After news broke that the mystery woman, now revealed as Christina Cho, actually had connections to PETA, an angry Khloe Kardashian took to her blog and publicly denounced the animal rights group. For most people, this decision probably would have been easy and expected, but for Lamar Odom’s wife, her prior behavior and well-documented moral code made the situation a bit more confusing.
Khloe took off her clothes for PETA back in 2008 in order to protest fur. Her sister has long been an advocate of animal skins, but she still felt she needed to stand up for what she believed in, which is the same reason why she’s now denouncing the organization she once bared all for. Here’s an excerpt from her message…
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."
It’s easy to see where Khloe is coming from. After all, Kim was bullied and borderline assaulted by the activist. As someone who doesn’t wear fur without any connection to the victim, I still sympathize with her anger. I’m sure it’s far more moving to actually have a sister involved, but as the most famous and popular advocacy group for animal rights, it’s also a big deal for Khloe to break ties. Beyond the picture she took, the reality star has also made numerous positive statements about the company and been very supportive in the past.
