Kim Kardashian has been a popular topic of conversation ever since she and ex-hubby NBA player Kris Humphries divorced after 72 days of wedded “bliss.” It seems the reality starlet hasn’t had much to celebrate and PETA agrees, especially since she continues wearing fur.

Kardashian’s furry wardrobe has been on PETA’s radar and they’ve contacted her several times to ask her to quit this bad habit. Well, the animal activist website has taken another tactic to get her attention. A billboard will be placed on Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood with Kardashian, wearing fur nonetheless, strategically placed next to baby foxes. It reads, “Kim: These babies miss their mother. IS SHE ON YOUR BACK?”

The sign will go up in early December and encourages, not just the Kardashian family, but everyone to go fur-free this holiday season and year-round.

“Kim knows that animals on fur farms are beaten, electrocuted, and often skinned alive. We’ve explained it to her, and she’s watched a video exposé that was filmed inside fur farms,” PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said to US Weekly.

“When Kim is ready to put an end to her relationship with fur, PETA will be happy to take her discards and donate them to the homeless,” Lang continued.

PETA hasn’t been a fan of Kardashian, 31, for a while now and even named her the “Worst Dressed Celebrity” of 2010.

Ironically, her sister, Khloe Kardashian, posed for PETA in their ‘I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur’ campaign and she even showed fur-farm videos on their reality show, ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’ Maybe, Kim didn’t get the memo?

“PETA hopes that the prominent billboard will finally be enough to convince Kim…to divorce herself from fur and say “I do” to a more compassionate wardrobe,” they said.

    Not a fan of either Peta or the Kardashians but what a b*tch! Couldn’t she at least forego her tacky fur clothing for the sake of her sister?

    Disgustingly cold-hearted.

      What is really disgusting to me is the fact that you and others of your ilk are always moralizing for other people. Since the cavemen, people have been eating meat and wearing fur. I think you should learn to love people more than you love animals. If one is to believe your Bible, man was given precidence of animals. What is all this el toro poo poo, you are spreading. What is disgustingly cold hearted is your getting on this site and calling a person you don’t know a name reserved for a dog. Alter YOURSELF or you won’t have a happy life.

    One: if god gave man lordship over the animals yet preaches mercy and goodwill, I don’t think he’d be happy about how the creatures he “created” are being stabbed, choked, beaten, and analy-electrocuted so some ice-queen can line her clothes and accessories with FUR SHE DOESN’T NEED.

    Two: I’m guessing you choose to believe all the hype about people like us, but guess what? We don’t hate human beings, we just want everyone to treat animals with as much compassion and understanding as possible. Is that an inhuman thing to ask? So, what, I’m a people hater because I can’t stand to see an animal, a flesh and blood creature that feels pain, loss, terror, and sadness, in the throes of agony because some idiot wants it as a fashion accessory?

    I guess my capacity to feel mercy and respect for anything other than people makes me less than human….yeah, you got it upside down and inside out bud. I think you might have checked your humanity by the door; might want to put it back on and really think about what it means to be kind.
