Khloe Kardashian, who proudly showed off her bare back in a 2008 No Fur campaign for PETA, is now ditching the animal rights group to the curb after her sister's flour “attack” on the red carpet.
In a statement on her official webpage
, Khloe lets her fans know of her decision to stop supporting the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, saying she can't continue doing so without feeling as if she's also supporting bullying.
Her decision comes on the heels of the revelation that the woman who threw flour all over Kim
on the red carpet a few days ago, is actually a very prominent PETA activist.
Initially, the group denied any association with the woman, though it did say it was willing to chip in with legal expenses, should Kim decide to file a formal complaint against her.
Khloe too has learned that the flour assailant was with PETA and, as such, she's decided to sever all ties with the group.
“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,” the reality star writes.
“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,” she continues.
Khloe offers her own example to explain why PETA was in the wrong by acting this way: it's her choice, she says, not to wear fur, but she would never force her beliefs onto someone else, let alone in such a violent manner as PETA did.
“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,” Khloe says.
As of now, PETA is yet to respond to this.
