Khloe Kardashian: "I Will No Longer Support PETA"
Officially cutting ties with PETA, Khloe Kardashian has released a statement saying she will have nothing to do with the organization after learning the woman responsible for dumping flour on her sister is heavily involved with the animal rights activists.
After being a spokesperson and appearing on several billboards for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Khloe released a statement reading, "PETA lied to the public" and "I will still continue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer support PETA."
The woman who flour bombed Kim Kardashian last week is Christina Cho and is said to be a PETA activist who has a history of anti-fur protesting.
In it's entirety, Here's Khloe's statement she posted on her blog:
"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."
