Despite PETA’s statement saying they weren’t to blame, Khloe Kardashian, who posed for their “Get Naked” campaign in 2008, will no longer be supporting the organization following Kim’s flour bombing incident (via Us Magazine).
As it turns out, the woman responsible for the flour attack is indeed associated with PETA. So what did Khloe do once she heard the news? She called it quits and announced via her blog that she would be packing her bags:
“Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behavior,” she wrote Monday (March 26). “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.”
Khloe continued, “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.” —Stephanie Long
