(LOS ANGELES) — Khloe Kardashian believes in the ethical treatment of animals, but she also believes in the ethical treatment of her sister, Kim.
Khloe on Monday announced that she is ending her association with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — PETA for short — because, she says, the woman who doused Kim with white flour at a red-carpet event last week has ties to the group. Khloe posed nude for a PETA campaign a few years ago.
Khloe writes on her blog, “Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behavior….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.”
TMZ.com is reporting that the perpetrator is a woman named Christina Cho, who has been referred to by PETA in the past as one of its members. PETA has told the website it is not responsible for last week’s flour attack on Kim.
Kim was promoting her new fragrance line at a West Hollywood event at the time of the incident. She recently told E! News she’s thinking of pressing charges against the woman.
