It seems the Kardashian clan can’t get away from being scrutinized for their actions. Whether it’s about their famed reality show, their relationships or their dance moves, someone will always have something to say. At least in this case, it’s for a good cause.
Model and animal-activist Joanna Krupa started an online petition, along with model Katie Cleary, to stop fur from being sold at the popular Kardashian store Dash.
Krupa is not shy when it comes to fighting for animal rights, as she posed for PETA’s popular ad “I’d rather go naked than wear fur.” In an interview with FOX411.com, Krupa explained why she and Cleary are targeting the Kardashian’s.
“Because I am fed up with them always wearing fur while being fully aware that many girls view them as a fashion inspiration, and even role models. Being a star comes with not just fame and fortune, but with awareness and responsibility.
“What angers me the most is that Khloe did an anti-fur PETA campaign, so you would think if she was so against fur, she wouldn’t allow it to be sold in their stores. Plus she would talk some sense into her sisters and never put it on. It actually saddens me that one now has to question the genuine motivation behind Khloe’s PETA campaign.”
Krupa also explained that even though Dash isn’t a huge store and she could target another establishment, they are petitioning the reality family as trend setters and popular personalities, in addition to their business.
The 32-year-old has also reached out to Kim by sending her tweets, “But they just seem to not care about the poor animals and the tragedy they got through while being skinned alive and bleeding to death.”
The anti-fur campaign’s goal is to achieve 10,000 signatures; so far, they’ve reached around 1,700. To get involved, click here to sign the petition.
