“Fur Hag” Kim Kardashian Flour-Bombed (Video)

“Fur Hag” Kim Kardashian Flour-Bombed (Video)

While taking her turn on the red carpet at a launch for her new perfume, True Reflection, Kim Kardashian was doused in something a bit less “fruity and floral.” A woman ran up to her, yelled “lousy fur hag” and doused her in flour, as captured on a video:

Animal rights activists have been putting the pressure on Kardashian to stop wearing and selling fur. Back in November, PETA put up a billboard in West Hollywood showing her in a fur vest beside a picture of live foxes with the words,“The babies miss their mother. Is she on your back?” Supermodels Joanna Krupa and Katie Cleary have started a petition to tell the Kardashians to stop selling fur that has gathered almost 140,000 signatures, almost reaching its goal of 150,000.

But Kardashian has been turning a deaf ear to these requests and has continued to wear fur in public at events including Kanye West’s Paris fashion show.

Moreover, media outlets including the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times seem to be praising Kardashian for being a “trouper,” for joking about the flour dousing and for not pressing charges against the woman who threw the flour (the woman was not identified and was released at the scene). These reports are missing the point about the flour-dousing, to alert the public to the abuses including beatings and electrocution that animals suffer for the sake of making fur garments.

Kardashian’s sister Kourtney said on Twitter, “Classy to flour bomb my sister at her charity event helping women. I wonder if they would have dared thrown the flour at my hormonal and pregnant self!” But if either sister had real class, they would realize how unsettling — as in downright disturbing and wrong — it is for them to sell fur products at “DASH,” their high-end clothing store, and under their Kardashian Kollection clothing line and to keep posing for the cameras while draped in the skins of dead animals.

If haven’t already, please sign the petition to tell the Kardashians to stop selling fur.

I do not condone violence, but in this case, a bit of flour can't hurt the classless BIMBO, and too bad she failed to "get the point". In all actuality, I've never watched her silly "reality" show, nor anything else concerning her or her slightly less idiotic sister, and when I see either of them on a magazine cover, I have to wonder WHY???? Okay, I admit it, I am clueless as to what either of them or their stupid Mother has in the way of any kind of talent.

Classless bitch! it's no secret what happens to get fur, either shes just really stupid and ignorant or shes a selfish famewhore.

Celebrities, as they would like to be called in this manner, nowadays are of much,much lesser brains and self-consciousness and compassion. They have to rely on the furs and skin of other species of helpless animals to get them on top of the Fashion lists.

I love and totally agree with some of these comments, like Michelle's. I also find it hilarious how upset these people are in the video--omg! flour!--It wasn't so bad as water would have been...in that scenario she would have melted, lol. Gotta fight for animal rights baby!

I would have chosen something a little more "earthy," shall I say, to throw at her....something savory smelling to help accompany the compost that's rotting in between her ears. She and Jay-lo are cut from the same cloth. More money than brains....and a ghastly lack of consciousness.

Colleen P what the hell is your opinion?cause you seem to have none of your own.You seem to be very easily and foolishly influenced.You say in one breath that the videos are staged and in another you said that animals don't suffer for their fur and they are already dead.So who's freakin side are you on?Do you know?Do you care?You make a lot of stupid comments!!!

Just went on Deviant Art and there are alot of blithering idiots on their saying it is alright to use animal for fur because people will do it anyway.What the hell kind of logic is that?So since people will molest children anyway it should be alright?We should not try to change things because it will happen regardless?!!!What kind of baffoons do we have on this planet?!!!Does the stupidity ever go away?I am so discouraged to see that there is a continous,neverending supply of ignorance being spread every single day!!!!
