PETA Slams Kim Kardashian Over Fur: “Greedy,” “Blatantly Cruel” & Bad Example
Kim Kardashian covered her baby bump in fur while strolling Paris on Monday, and it’s not sitting well with PETA. The animal rights advocacy group is once again blasting the reality TV star — who was infamously “flour bombed” by an activist last year — for her fashion choices.
In a statement to Gossip Cop, PETA says Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West will serve as “poor examples” to their unborn child, suggesting they’re on the track to being “greedy, self-absorbed parents” whose “blatantly cruel” use of animal products could revolt their children.
Here’s the full statement:
“Children naturally identify and empathize with animals — so even though Kim and Kanye will undoubtedly serve as poor examples when it comes to kindness toward animals, perhaps their child will take after Aunt Khloe and choose kindness by rejecting fur.”
“Children who come from greedy, self-absorbed parents could follow their lead or break away and be alienated from and disgusted by them. Kim is a commodity: She is paid to wear things like fur or a particular makeup and to shake hands with dictators — so she is not a good example for a child or anyone else of how to show a social conscience. Thankfully, this child will be growing up in a time when most people know how blatantly cruel it is to buy a coat made from someone else’s skin — so there is hope.”
