Former PETA activist Khloe Kardashian surprised many by stepping out in a full-length fur coat in New York City today. Even more confusing was the cryptic message spray-painted on the back…
Upon first glance, the statement looks like it was painted by an animal rights vigilante. Khloe later clarified on Keek that it was an intentional fashion statement: “F*ck Yo Fur!!! Fake fur all day people!!”
Khloe previously partnered with PETA, but publicly criticized the organization after Kim Kardashian was flour-bombed by someone with close ties to the group.
“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 said in a 2012 post titled “I No Longer Support PETA.” She added, “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.”
Although Khloe continues to make her anti-fur views known, it’s unclear whether she’s influenced sister Kourtney Kardashian, who also wore a fur-style coat.
All three Kardashian sisters are in New York City, reportedly to hunt for a new DASH location. They are filming their real estate search for an upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
