Khloe Kardashian

PETA is Dead to Me

3/26/2012 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Khloe Kardashian is cutting off all ties with PETA
Khloe Kardashian is cutting off all ties with PETA ... claiming she will NOT support an organization that condones the "bullying" art of flour bombing.

Khloe -- who has appeared on several billboards for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals -- says she was disgusted when she found out the organization has ties to the woman who attacked her sister Kim.

Now, she's released a statement saying, "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."

TMZ broke the story ... the woman who floured Kim at a red carpet event last week is Christina Cho ... a major PETA activist with a history of anti-fur protesting.

Here's Khloe's entire statement:

"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."

PETA gets all the flap. I'm an animal rights activist, but not a member of PETA. A heck of a lot more animal rights activist are not members of PETA than are, I believe. That was hysterical seeing Kim doused in flour. Hysterical! Who the F does she think she is? Elizabeth Taylor (her idol, as she said and fellow fur C). She's a fool, through and through. An embarrassment. She wears fur for an appearance, than sticks it in the in back of her closet. Disgusting. A waste. She should be ashamed of herself. Evolve Kim, evolve.

Khloe, first, good for PETA, you cut all ties with them...because your photo is really disgusting...second, I guess your entire family should renounce FUR....otherwise you will be DEAD for many of your fans in the same way PETA is dead for you. The difference between you guys and PETA is that THEY DO NOT SKIN animals alive ot make a fur coat...your sister wears DEAD animals, who HAVE BEEN SKINNED ALIVE...and by the way, what is your contribution to society ? besides wasting our time? Which are YOUR CHARITIES GUYS ????????????

PETA actually makes me so mad. Can't you swallow your pride and admit that throwing flour on someone for expressing their right as an American citizen to wear whatever they want is actually wrong and illegal. I don't care if you don't like who they are or the choices they're making. Grow up already. This is not the fifth grade anymore.
