kard_fur_explanation

After appearing in a new ad campaign for PETA, Khloe Kardashian came under fire after photos surfaced showing her earlier in the year covered in fur. The jeering was such that the Wikipedia-labeled “celebutante” thought an explanation was required. On her official website she wrote,

“As some of you might have seen today, there are several people who have taken to the web calling me a hypocrite and posting photos of me wearing fur.

The reason PETA approached me initially is because in my past I did wear fur and they wanted to educate me on the brutal ways in which animals are skinned for their pelts. After watching their video once, I was so horrified that I immediately swore off fur. The cruel treatment I saw had a great impact on me and I am deeply hurt that people are trying to criticize me for uneducated choices I made in my past that I now regret terribly.”

I do know there are tons of photos where I am wearing fur pieces so this is to be expected, but I just wanted to let you know the real story behind my conscious decision and compassionate change of heart.

I have changed my ways and I hope that many other people will as well.

Think Khloe will stick to her resolve not to wear fur? What if fur-house Blackglama came wagging a six-figure deal for her to appear in a new ad campaign? Would she take the high-road like Lenoa Lewis and turn them down due to her personal convictions? After catching a glimpse of that Kardashians television series, I doubt it.
