Khloe Kardashian has defended her history of wearing fur despite recently posing nude as the latest celebrity spokesmodel in an ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star came under fire this week after photos emerged of her wearing a fur coat during a social affair last Spring.
Khloe admits she used to wear fur, but insists she “swore off” the furry stuff after watching a PETA video explaining the painful origins behind luxurious mink and beaver coats.
“As some of you might have seen today, there are several people who have taken to the web calling me a hypocrite and posting photos of me wearing fur. The reason PETA approached me initially is because in my past I did wear fur and they wanted to educate me on the brutal ways in which animals are skinned for their pelts.”
“I was so horrified that I immediately swore off fur. I just wanted to let you know the real story behind my conscious decision and compassionate change of heart. I have changed my ways and I hope that many other people will as well.”
