Khloe Kardashian says she has sworn off fur, thanks to PETADecember 19th, 2008 - 5:35 pm ICT by ANI
London, December 19 (ANI): Socialite Khloe Kardashian has admitted to her fur-wearing-past insisting she had now sworn off fur after being guided by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
The American celebutante, best known for her appearances on the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, had become the centre of controversy after old photographs of her wearing a fur coat were released.
The new rep for the animal rights organisation said that she was now done donning fur after watching a disturbing PETA film, depicting the torture inflicted on animals skinned alive for their skin.
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 Sun quoted her as saying.
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, she added.
Speaking of the gruesome video, she added on her blog: 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. (ANI)
