Khloe Kardashian quits PETA

2012-03-27 17:42

Los Angeles - Khloe Kardashian has quit PETA after it voiced its approval of sister Kim's flour-bombing.

The anti-fur group has denied responsibility for the incident - which saw Kim, 31, pelted with flour as she walked the red carpet last week - but says it will support the accused woman if charges are brought.

Now 27-year-old Khloe - who once posed nude for a PETA advert - has broken ranks with the organisation.

She explained: "I just received word that the woman responsible has very close ties to PETA, despite PETA publicly stating otherwise.

"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."

Militant

According to TMZ.com, Kim is planning to press charges against the woman, who the website claims is a "militant" PETA member.

And if she does, the group has vowed to support the accused in any way possible.

It said in a statement: "If she presses charges, at least people will be constantly reminded of her selfish, callous disregard for the cruel deaths that she causes by wearing fur.

"How much better it would be if she decided to evolve and enhance her image by donating her vulgar furs and exotic-animal skins to the homeless. The activist acted from the heart, something Kim doesn't seem to have.

"If anything, Kim should get a life, the very thing that she denies animals."

'Absolutely disgusted'

But Khloe insists although she is anti-fur, she respects her sister's opposing views.

Writing on her blog, she added: "I am absolutely disgusted by their behaviour. 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."

    Don't eat the bunnies- they are our friends. We should all dance in the meadows with our furry friends...sorry what? I could not hear you over the sounds of me eating a bacon burger.

    Actually in the pic above the chick in the middle really kind of looks like a man. Strange. Is that a transvestite?

      Are you asking for yourself or your friends?

    interesting that Khloe is 'anti-bullying' and 'anti-violence', but tolerates the torture of defenceless animals (if you are not against it, you are for it). a case of double standards. sitting on the fence never achieves anything. you have one life to live - make it count.

    I completely agree with Khloe's sentiment. Whilst I don't condone nor support animal cruelty...I don't think the means by which PETA lately supports their cause is accomplishing anything apart from making them out to be a group of savages. It's the same thing as a man raping a lesbian woman with the intention of making her straight. It instills fear in the victim but doesn't actually accomplish a thing. If anything it has the opposite effect. Bombing someone with flour won't make them realise the err of their ways, it simply pisses them off and strengthens their beliefs. We are educated, civilised (one would think) human beings. Act like it.

    If Khloe actually fully opposed wearing fur, she would make more of an effort to get her whole family to join in as well. How can you pose for a campaign and publicly proclaim that you're against wearing it if your own sisters wear it regularly?? I'm starting to believe more and more that she did it as a publicity stunt and was more worried about how her figure was portrayed on the posters than the actual cause itself. Disgusting!!! People who wear fur should have some of their own skin violently removed and see how they like it!!
