Supermodels Tell Kardashians: Stop Selling Fur!

Supermodels Tell Kardashians: Stop Selling Fur!

Supermodel and Dancing With the Stars star Joanna Krupa has been featured on PETA’s “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” campaign. She and supermodel Katie Cleary — who helped to pass a ban on the sale of fur in West Hollywood which is to take effect in early 2012 — are calling on the Kardashian family to remove all fur from “DASH,” their high-end clothing store, and also from their clothing line, the Kardashian Kollection.

A Care2 petition started by Krupa and Cleary has already gathered over 5,000 signatures as of the writing of this post.

Speaking to Fox News, Krupa explained that she and Cleary have targeted the three Kardashian sisters instead of a bigger fur retailer because of the sisters’ status as fashion icons. Says Krupa:

“… I am fed up with them always wearing fur while being fully aware that many girls view them as a fashion inspiration, and even role models. Being a star comes with not just fame and fortune, but with awareness and responsibility.”

As Khloe Kardashian has actually participated in an anti-fur PETA campaign, her wearing fur and including it in the Kardashian Kollection seem something more than hypocritical. Krupa continues:

“It actually saddens me that one now has to question the genuine motivation behind Khloe’s PETA campaign.”

Krupa also notes that she has personally sought to contact the Kardashians on the issue of fur but “they just seem to not care about the poor animals and the tragedy they go through while being skinned alive and bleeding to death.” So far, the Kardashians have not responded to Krupa’s tweets about the petition. Asked what she would do if she saw one of the Kardashian sisters wearing fur, Krupa gave this response:

“I would rather not see it, as I would not be able to keep myself from starting an argument with them.”

It’s notable that Krupa singles out the importance of acting with “awareness and responsibility” for celebrities. While it is easy to criticize actors and singers and others for championing various good causes, Krupa’s statement suggests that she is more than attuned to the responsibilities that come with “fame and fortune” and to how she can use these to make the world a better place.

Please sign the petition to ask the Kardashians to stop selling fur!

Don't count on them becoming nicer people....they would just put on an act if it made them money.Since being nice cannot make you filthy rich their will always scum like the Kardashians and then those who want to be part of the IN crowd will always wanna buy and wear what they wear thinking that will automatically make them special.Well yes it makes you special alright...if makes you specially evil!!!

I guess I live in a bubble. I never even heard of the Kardashians until their brother was on 'Dancing with the Stars.' From what I've read on here, they seem to be worthless.

I signed the petition because they should be very ashamed of themselves for wearing and selling fur. Don't they realize what these poor animals go through to give them their fur and then die a horrible death?

Maybe I am glad I don't know who they are!!

I've sign the petition. This seems utterly ridiculous to me. The fact that Khloe appeared in a PETA add against fur but still stocks it in her shop is just mind blowing. Although, I don't think any of these girls have any of the sense they were born with left. It seems to me that the whole family will do anything to get their faces on the small screen. What, all Kim has to do is make a sex tape and therefore she's famous? Ridiculous people, cancel them on E, that'll shut them up :-(

Ugh, the Kardashians are such dumbasses.

Marilyn L... you can't understand what they did to become famous because they never did anything to become famous. They are just a man-made product and someone's idea of what will sell and make money and unfortunately, there are enough idiots out there to go along with it and buy it and make money for them. In turn... if their selling furs will make them MONEY... then they will sell furs and to hell with any details or objections beyond that.
