“Khloe Kardashian has quit as a spokesperson for PETA in support of her sister Kim who was flour (attacked) by a woman believed to be one of the animal rights group’s volunteers, Celebuzz has learned.
In a statement posted on her blog moments ago — and provided exclusively to Celebuzz — 27-year-old Khloe wrote: “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.”
A furious Khloe said she would continue not to wear fur, but added that she could no longer support the organization for whom she famously stripped down for in 2008, as part of their “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign.
“Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution and I won’t be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise,” she wrote.
The Khloe & Lamar star added:
“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!”
I wanted to write about Peta because I have been disgusted with Peta for a while. It is disturbing that people exploit women to further their cause, whatever cause it may be. In my city they had females out topless on street corners. Of course it made the news, but what does it say about a group that uses women to benefit themselves?
No, I don’t like a group that would exploit females to further their cause. Really, from what I have heard, Peta is just a money-making scheme. It is not surprising to me that Peta vandalizes people in addition to exploiting women. Shameful.
