Khole Kardashian has been an avid PETA supporter for many years and while she feels wearing fur is a cruel measure – the reality start is turning her back on the organization as she feels they did an even worse atrocity by having one of their supporters, “flour-bomb” her sister.
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian’s flour attacker is an influential PETA activist despite the organization’s denials about any connection to the flour bombing stunt last Thursday (March 22nd).
The woman’s name is Christina Cho and she has a history of staging dramatic anti-fur protests in PETA’s name. Back in 2010, she grabbed the mic from Donna Karan at a Women’s Conference event in NYC, condemning the use of fur in fashion (seen below).
PETA reported on the protest — referring to Christina as a super “PETA member” and “superstar activist.” Christina even won an award from PETA in 2010 for her work for the organization.
Christina’s younger sister Michelle is a top PETA official in L.A., who credits Christina with leading her to PETA and a life of activism.
With this news now leaking to the mainstream, Khloe Kardashian has decided to cut off all ties with PETA claiming she cannot continue to support an organization that condones “bullying”.
Khloe released the following statement explaining her disgust with the organization:
“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.”
