Kim Kardashian gets under PETA's skin
Kim Kardashian's problems don't stop at her divorce lawyer's office. The reality star is now under fire from PETA for her love of fur.
Kim Kardashian loves fashion -- and her outfits often include fur. Now PETA is calling her out for killing the mothers of baby foxes and wearing them on her back.
The animal rights organization will unveil a huge new billboard in Los Angeles next month featuring orphaned baby foxes in their den alongside a photo of Kardashian wearing a fur stole around her neck.
"Kim: These babies miss their mother," the sign reads. "Is she on your back?"
Kim continues to wear fur despite her sister Khloe Kardashian's alignment with the organization.
"We wish [Kim] would take a cue from her fur-free sister," said PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. "But evidently, kindness and generosity don't run in the family."
"Kim knows that animals on fur farms are beaten, electrocuted and often skinned alive. We've explained it to her, and she's watched a video exposé that was filmed inside fur farms."
"When Kim is ready to put an end to her relationship with fur, PETA will be happy to take her discards and donate them to the homeless," Lang added.
"PETA hopes that the prominent billboard will finally be enough to convince Kim… to divorce herself from fur and say 'I do' to a more compassionate wardrobe."
This isn't the first time the group has targeted the reality star. She was named PETA's Worst Dressed Celebrity in 2010 because of her love of fur. The group also sent Kim a thoughtful wedding gift: Her very own faux fur blanket.
"It's no secret that Kim has a penchant for wearing fur, but we're hoping that this elegant velvet-lined throw -- the same style that is used at premier resorts -- will help convince the future Mrs. Humphries to say 'I do!' to being kind to animals," PETA said at the time.
So far no comment from Kim's camp -- she's rather busy working on her divorce from Kris Humphries, which she announced after just 72 days of marriage.
