- Twitter: Kim Kardashian
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are set to face an anti-fur protest instigated by two successful models who are targeting the trio's DASH clothing store in Calabasas, CA.
Joanna Krupa and Katie Cleary, both models and animal rights activist, have created a campaign which aims to publicly condemn the Kardashian sisters' use of fur, with the sisters constantly selling various real fur clothing items out of DASH, according to Radar Online.
"One of the most influential families in the entertainment industry that could help give animals a voice on a large scale are the Kardashians. As a fashion-forward family with their clothing line in stores all over the US, they have the power to influence millions of people around the world," Krupa said in a statement to Radar Online.
The news comes just one week after reality TV personality, Khloe, 28, abruptly severed all ties to animal rights group PETA after a humiliating attack against her older sister, Kim.
"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 wrote in a statement recently posted on her website.
Khloe was reportedly infuriated after Kim, 31, was doused in cooking flour while posing for pictures at her perfume launch party in West Hollywood by an animal rights activist identified as, Christina Cho.
Cho, who has not been charged for the incident, is said to be a longtime PETA activist whose younger sister is a top PETA official in Los Angeles.
"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," Khloe wrote.
Some critics have questioned just how genuine Khloe's support for PETA has been over recent years, with some pointing out that despite supporting their anti-fur campaigns she proceeds to sell real fur out of her DASH store, which is co-owned by all three sisters.
The Kardashians have not yet responded to Krupa's statement.
