It seems that Kim Kardashian has once again angered the animal rights organization PETA. For a long time, Kim has made clear her love of wearing fur — so she was already on the group’s list. What has she done this time? She’s lugging around a fancy Birkin handbag made of crocodile skin.
Is anyone surprised that PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is going after Kim Kardashian yet again? Probably not. The organization does use some questionable tactics when it comes to getting its point across. Remember the now infamous flour-bombing of Kim K. on the red carpet back in March? The woman responsible for dousing Kim with the flour, Christina Cho, was an admitted PETA activist.
Yes, the battle between Kim Kardashian and PETA continues, and it likely will for some time. Kim shows no sign of backing down — she was recently seen carrying her crocodile-skin Birkin bag (which costs, by the way, a whopping $50,000). No doubt she’ll soon be strutting around in her python boots, too.
Is Kim right to wear so many high-end animal skin fashion items and accessories? PETA spokesperson Wendy Wegner sure doesn’t think so, telling Radar Online, “For every alligator or crocodile-skin accessory, an animal was likely beaten but still conscious and able to feel excruciating pain as his or her skin was peeled off.”
Yikes. It’s really clear that Kim Kardashian doesn’t care what PETA thinks, but how does everyone else feel about the matter? Should Kim stop wearing animal skins and go totally cruelty-free?
The fallout from the now infamous sex tape’s star Kim K flour-bombing incident continued this week, when Kim Kardashian indicated she would likely file a formal complaint against the attacker. Apparently, she’s taking a little time to think things over before she makes that decision. When this flour attack first happened, Kim seemed to shrug the event off, even making light of it with humor. Now? Well, she’s not laughing.
The woman who allegedly doused Kim Kardashian with flour as she strutted on the red carpet last week has been identified as Christina Cho. According to reports, Cho could face non-criminal battery charges. Who is she? The Daily Mail reports that Cho is an animal rights activist who is an “influential member” of PETA. Here’s where it gets uglier: Khloe Kardashian, Kim’s little sister and a staunch supporter of animal rights, is now furious. Khloe’s worked with PETA on anti-fur campaigns in the past, but now that her own sis was a target? No longer. Khloe issued an angry statement, saying:
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.
Khloe Kardashian is sticking up for her sister, and rightly so. She says that what happened to Kim last week was an example of “bullying.” Yeah, she’s really, really mad.
Will Kim Kardashian file a complaint against Christina Cho? That seems likely. Once she does, police can move forward with pressing charges in the case. Stay tuned…
Kim Kardashian is definitely not one to shy away from any red carpet, but how about a red and white one? On Thursday night, sex tape star was attacked by a woman wielding a bag of flour! A shocked Kim was completely covered in white powder. Ever the professional, Kim took everything in stride, though. She quickly scooted out of the event, got cleaned up and, within minutes, was right back out there!
Kim Kardashian was on the red carpet at the London Hotel in West Hollywood when the incident happened. Somehow, a woman got past Kim’s (heavy) security and managed to throw an entire bag of cooking flour on her. The woman, who hasn’t been identified, was whisked away from security on the scene and later arrested. Why did she do it? That’s unclear — but if she wanted to get Kim K’s attention, she definitely got it.
Some are speculating that Kim Kardashian was flour-bombed by someone affiliated with the group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). TMZ reports that the suspect yelled “Fur Hag!” at Kim just before she threw the flour on her. A a spokesperson for PETA says while they’re “supportive” of the attacker, the group wasn’t responsible for the incident.
Either way, the key thing here is that Kim handled herself very well. She got cleaned up, got back out there and even managed to joke about everything later, saying she’d even asked her makeup person for “more powder” before she hit the red carpet. This is probably NOT what she meant.
There is a good piece of news about Kim Kardashian: she doesn’t wear fur, at least for some time, to PETA’s happiness. She prefers to wear artificial fur hoods made by the company SpiritHoods. Cute hoods became popular among lots of celebrities and Kim likes everything that is in vogue. The reality show star posted her photo with this accessory on her head. Nice look.
PETA is not approved of Kim’s passion for fur. This organization tried to convince her not to wear animal skin’s and they even gifted her a mantle made of artificial fur on scandal tape star’s wedding. Their tolerance is over and they are going to install a billboard with the reality show star’s image, where she is wearing fur, and below there are baby foxes. The message is: “Kim: These Babies Miss Their Mother. Is She on Your Back?” Perhaps this will influence Kim’s attitude towards poor animals.
Speaking about the matter of Jonathan Jaxson’s false accusations, Kim’s ex-publicist has nearly commited a suicide. His miserable thoughts appeared in Tweeter, but then he pulled himself together and wrote: “I’m so sorry to those I scared & sorry for acting selfish. I’m not a quitter and never will be! I feel extremely blessed & God’s on my side!”
On November 27 there is going to be Kourtney & Kim Take New York new series. They run about Kim and Kris relationships behind the scene. According to them, Kim was a ‘victim’ in their marriage, while Kris Humphries remained insensitive to her. It seems that Kim Kardashian wants to take advantage of everything, including the divorce.
