Kim Kardashian Gets Flour Thrown On Her At Fragrance Event

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.

    Khloe,

    I am glad to see that you are no longer supporting PETA. It frustrates me beyond belief when I see celebrities supporting PETA. I wish they would do better research on an organization prior to lending their fame to a cause. This type of behavior is nothing new for PETA. People with “close ties to PETA” behave poorly, treat people with differing opinions badly, and go so far as to poison animals who they believe are in poor living conditions. The organization is a joke, and in my opinion, practice domestic terrorism.

    What is PETA teaching our children… Its not ok to destroy animals and wear fur etc etc BUT it is ok to abuse people who wear it by throwing flour and paint at them and destroying there clothes etc. Will Never support PETA. I would rather support an organisation who are more professional and value the feelings of other human beings as they do animals.

    Animal abuse is a form of bullying and Kim should perhaps sit down and watch a video from beginning to end of how fur is peeled off animals and how they remain alive during the whole process and some remain blinking their frightened eyes and the humans who with out compassion or sympathy are doing this and ignoring their screams of pain and torture. Kim should watch for herself and should be some kind of role model. It is sad to see that someone can be so vain to wear fur. I personally admired Khloe for not wearing fur out of her entire family and I understand her position that this is her sister, however Kim does not seem to get the point and perhaps a flour bag will make that impact. A flour bag will never compare to the skinning of these creatures for a stupid fur coat. We are no longer living in cave days. Wake up world and lend a compassionate hand to those who need a voice. Animal welfare is something we need to promote because when you have compassion for other creatures other than just humans, you are extending your love for all living creatures. We all want to live and we all have a family that we want to go home to. These animals also want to live and breath and avoid pain, and also have a family to go home to. We need to humble ourselves and extend our compassion. The woman who threw that bag of flour was trying to make a point after countless of attempts to reach out to Kim to stop wearing fur and the killing of animals for fashion. She was standing up for those who cannot fend for themselves and for that, I appreciate her efforts. STOP WEARING FUR! IT IS INHUMANE! IT IS TORTURE! WATCH A VIDEO FROM START TO END!

      The video was staged. Animals are NOT skinned alive. Video purporting to show fur production in China was distributed early in 2005 by an animal rights group, Swiss Animal Protection. Reportedly, filming was conducted by Swiss Animal Protection/EAST International in 2004-05 in Heibei Province. By spring 2005, the footage was being distributed by North American animal rights groups with new scenes added. Highly edited, the video shown in the U.S. includes footage of a fox farm where a dog is heard barking excitedly, a shot of a highly agitated fox (perhaps offered food) surrounded by calm foxes, plus mink on a farm illustrating distressed behavior, perhaps due to unusual activity on the farm out of camera range. The video includes clips of foxes and raccoon dogs (tanuki), both animals which are also taken from the wild, in a marketplace setting. One man appears wearing a butcher’s apron as he quickly kills a raccoon dog. However, another man, wearing street clothes (black leather jacket and pleated black pants) brutally skins alive a raccoon dog that he has hung on the back of a truck (license plate removed). The animal tries to bite the man and struggles aggressively, making the process extremely difficult. The camera comes in close on a skinned, but still moving animal on a pile of animal carcasses. While the moving animal is covered in blood, showing its heart was pumping during the process, the animals beneath it are clean, as they would be if skinned while dead, which, of course, is the standard, normal procedure and the ONLY acceptable one by humane standards. Another scene shows a man wearing tattered shoes, hitting a fox on the head with a knife, temporarily stunning but not killing it. He then struggles to skin the obviously alive, moving animal, alternating with beating it with the knife. The animal struggles so much as to make the job impossible, and a shot is seen of the man’s shoes on the animal’s head. It is nonsensical to suggest that skinning an animal alive is normal practice since even this film of inhumane behavior proves this process to be difficult and dangerous, and furthermore the pulse of the living animal would cause extensive bleeding and damage to the fur. It is therefore highly likely that these scenes were staged. The fur industry in Europe requested the original unedited footage from the Swiss animal rights group and was refused. The China Fur Commission and China Leather Industry Association challenged the authenticity of the material, saying: “Pictures showing animals being skinned alive are obviously plotted. All those with common sense would not choose this slaughter method to attain fur.” The government of Suning County, Hebei Province also issued a statement outlining welfare practices on its fur farms, calling the alleged practice of skinning animals alive “unimaginable,” and urging Swiss Animal Protection Organization to “respect the truth.” PETA refuses to respect the truth because the doctored videos bring in a lot of money. By the way, PETA kills almost all of the pets it takes in at their Virginia headquarters “shelter,” which would be more accurately called a slaughterhouse PETA’s own records prove it: http://bit.ly/5TKh2.

    I understand the argument i have produced will be foreign to some -as it is educated – but here goes.
    1. Kim Kardashian has been asked on previous accounts to discontinue her use of fur, not only is it an act of humanity but it is vital for a public figure such as herself to understand the repercussions for her actions/choices.
    2. The reason that this IS so very vital is that it is not only inhumane to don fur but also it is environmentally unsound – so even if you are a callas individual you might like to concern yourself with climate change as it will ultimately effect you and those surrounding you. I am sure you are unfamiliar with the concept of fashion being linked with climate change, but one would hope you would not be so ignorant to assume that the fur and leather farming ‘industries’ distribute the unused material (the steak on your goddamn plate) so as not to contribute greatly to the number one cause of global warming (ANIMAL AGRICULTURE) – In saying this, it is pitiful that one cannot discontinue their use of fur/leather – simply by knowing the suffering taken place for an ugly ass garment.
    3. That you could even compare on your twitter page the bullying that children must endure on the playground to what Kim faced is a ridiculous notion that forced me to write you. Kim has been asked previously (in a less controversial manner) to discontinue her use, i think what we should be discussing far more is the fact she had said no on that occasion. Oh, i forgot, the biological makeup of these animals does not include a nervous system so that when they are skinned alive, they don’t feel a goddamn thing! < All sarcastic, in case you unsure. So who is the victim? Ridiculously rich, contributor to stereotyping women negatively, KIND Kim Kardashian? Or the innocent animals that endure pain so that people can buy their fur coats for what, 5000 bucks and kid themselves that it looks better on them????

      Fur animals are NOT skinned alive. Animal agriculture is NOT the number-one cause of climate change. You have been fed a crock, shelly1990, and need to do some real research.

    Hello Khole,
    I have to say I not a huge fan or anyhting. But after I saw this air on the news I felt like I had to reach out. I have been a long time supporter of PETA as well ,even including many monetary donations over the years. But after seeing this stunt they pulled on Kim. I will no longer support them in anyway! It was alarming, distastful, and disguisting. Even worse that PETA is supporting it! Harassing, assaulting, and bullying individuals and forcing opinions on them is not the way to get your point across. I do believe that Kim should press charges to the full extent of the law, sue PETA, and the individual. Because how I see it the woman who did it is the sister of one of the their executives. They planned this stunt to harm Kim and bring attention to their campaign. They are SORRY AS HELL for that! Because if someone did that to me all hell would probably break loose. Well I am done venting good luck with your marriage, career, and all your future ventures in life. God Bless!

      Well then I hope you will find the many organizations that make a difference and continue to do something. Withdrawing over flour bombing an inane reality TV star is just as absurd.
      Im not saying I support PETA IM saying I support the end to animal cruelty, that’s the point that everyone seems to be missing.
      “I made the choice to be vegan because I will not eat (or wear, or use) anything that could have an emotional response to its death or captivity. I can well imagine what that must feel like for our non-human friends – the fear, the terror, the pain – and I will not cause such suffering to a fellow living being.” ~Rai Aren

    It was flour not blood. It is absurd and sickening to withdraw aid to suffering animals and ruthless people who wear fur and support the depths of animal cruelty. Shame on you Khloe and on Kim and, all of you who support animal atrocities. Your sister is a wasteful individual who cares only for herself, seems like you walk in her footsteps after all. Your family should be made to watch as they rip the skin off a live animal, this is what is going on in the world open your eyes!!!! Spend some big money on ending the sick acts done to the voiceless sufferers on our planet.
    I’m truly repulsed by the article I read on the Daily Beast in regards to your stand over this issue.

    People, I know that it is difficult to fathom that these animals are skinned alive, but they are. It has been done for years. Rabbit coats were big in the 70′s and I remember knowing then, that they were skinned alive. Not only are the skinned alive, but they are kept in terrible, inhumane cages with no compassion. This is a very real thing and those of you who believe that it isn’t true or is a hoax need to do your research. I have no dog in this race, no pun intended but I refuse to wear fur. I do think PETA goes overboard sometimes, but you really need to see some of the videos, even some not made by PETA. It is common knowledge and if you don’t believe it, you are fooling yourselves. Also, why wouldn’t Khloe wear it if she didn’t know the truth about where it comes from and what happens to the animals. She is in a sensitive position because it was her sister that this happened to. Anyway, it is real and it is cruel and animals are curious, loving creatures that don’t deserve this treatment. Remember Hitler? He thought Jews were a lower form of human and look how many millions he killed…so opinions are nice, but torture and cruelty to animals are not.
