Kim Kardashian Is A Grinch, Says PETA

PETA is getting rilly ril with their messaging this year. Instead of just throwing red paint on people, getting naked, or even just being all, “hey, stop wearing fur,” the animal rights group is making personal, public attacks on famous people — the group named Kim Kardashian, Janet Jackson and Cameron Crowe as their first annual celebrity grinches.

The first two were called out for their habit of wearing fur, and the third for using animals in his movies. I’d paraphrase what PETA said, but I probably wouldn’t be as mean, so here’s the excerpt from their blog:

  • When Janet Jackson had her infamous “wardrobe malfunction” during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own—unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career). Ms. Jackson, you’re just plain nasty.
  • Filmmaker and former visionary Cameron Crowe went retro in the wrong way for his new flick, We Bought a Zoo, which relied on the performing-animal industry—in which the “actors” are routinely neglected and even abused—instead of using state-of-the-art computer imaging. Exploiting live animals to tell a story about saving animals? At least Elizabethtown won’t go down as his worst creative flop.
  • Some have speculated that Kim Kardashian‘s wedding to NBA forward Kris Humphries was fake. Too bad the socialite princess doesn’t have the same enthusiasm for faking her fur. Unlike her sweet sister Khloe, who starred in her own PETA anti-fur ad, Kim just can’t seem to divorce herself from fur and say “I do” to a kind and kompassionate wardrobe.

Damn.

    Wow that’s a little harsh. I’m all for animal rights but it’s not right to attack people who don’t share the same views as you do.

    How do they even know that the fur is real? Once an obnoxious PETA dude yelled at me on the street about my faux fur coat. What a dick.

    The animal shelters that PETA runs have high kill rates. When Michael Vick was busted for dogfighting, the head of PETA called for all the dogs from the operation to be put down immediately (many of those dogs are doing very well now). I am a vegetarian, non-fur wearer and PETA enrages me.

    PETA is ridiculous. Their actions put me off supporting them. I don’t wear fur and I support animal rights and charities, but I will never support PETA’s idiocy.

    When someone like Kim Kardashian can influence countless young girls, it’s imperative that a strong organization like PETA–that isn’t afraid to speak up– steps in. Kim can’t even state ignorance–she’s seen the horrifying videos of innocent animals being skinned alive and beat over the head. That just makes her a selfish monster. And give me a break, @MM. Her furs are clearly real to the naked eye, AND she’s publicly stated that she loves her fur. I think she needs to watch those Chinese fur farm videos again and ask herself if fashion is worth all of that torture…
