PETA can no longer include the name Khloe Kardashian on their list of celebrity supporters. The reality star, who has posed nude for the People of Ethical Treatment of Animals’ ad campaigns in the past, is cutting ties after her sister, Kim Kardashian, was doused with flour.
While technically PETA didn’t order the flour-bombing heard ’round the web, the group has spoken out in support of the anti-fur activist who did it. Khloe, 27, isn’t changing her mind about wearing fur, but explained her anti-bullying stance means she can no longer work with a group who applauds “violent” tactics.
Khloe Kardashian’s PETA statement, titled “I no longer support PETA,” reads in its entirety as follows:
“Hi dolls. I’m sure you all heard what happened to Kim last week (thank you SO much for the love and support you all showed her), and I just received word that the woman responsible has very close ties to PETA, despite PETA publicly stating otherwise.
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.
As you all know, I don’t condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior. 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.
I am a very proud sister right now, because Kim handled last week’s incident like a champ. She got cleaned up and was back out there in a matter of minutes. Go, Kimmie!
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.”
