Khloe Kar­dashian cuts ties with PETA over flour in­ci­dent

The Washington Times Daily - - Television -

Net­flix, for its part, has con­tin­ued its ag­gres­sive push into scripted pro­gram­ming, pick­ing up 20th Tele­vi­sion’s “Ar­rested De­vel­op­ment” in Novem­ber years af­ter the com­edy ended its run on Fox. It’s also spend­ing big on fare from David Fincher (“House of Cards”), Jenji Ko­han (“Orange Is the New Black”) and Eli Roth (“Hem­lock Grove”).

While “Terra Nova” av­er­aged 7.5 mil­lion to­tal view­ers and 2.6 mil­lion in the ad­ver­tiser-cov­eted adults age 18-to-49 de­mo­graphic in its 11-episode first sea­son, it failed to catch on the way Fox had hoped. Miss Mcbride hand­picked Christina David­son and her fi­ance Frank Tucci to tie the knot dur­ing her per­for­mance in Las Ve­gas.

They both lost their spouses in 2009 and met at a sup­port group for young wid­ows and wid­ow­ers that Ms. David­son started in their com­mu­nity. Their friend­ship grew as they dealt with the chal­lenges of be­ing sin­gle par­ents and the strug­gle to keep their spouses’ mem­o­ries alive.

Her naked body once graced a PETA bill­board and now E! re­al­ity star Khloe Kar­dashian is call­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion bul­lies.

It all stems from a re­cent in­ci­dent with Miss Kar­dashian’s sis­ter, Kim, who was flour-bombed by an an­ti­fur ac­tivist last week at an event. PETA claimed no re­spon­si­bil­ity for the act, but Khloe Kar­dashian said she has heard dif­fer­ently.

“I just re­ceived word that the woman re­spon­si­ble has very close ties to PETA, de­spite PETA pub­licly stat­ing oth­er­wise,” Miss Kar­dashian wrote on her web­site. “Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they sup­port this kind of be­hav­ior. I’ve been a vo­cal sup­porter of PETA for a long time, but I have also been very vo­cal about an­tibul­ly­ing, so this was a huge dis­ap­point­ment for me.”

Ms. Kar­dashian went on to write that she con­sid­ered the at­tack on her sis­ter a form of vi­o­lence and bul­ly­ing, which she doesn’t con­done.

“We all need to prac­tice what we preach,” she con­tin­ued. “I will still con­tinue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer sup­port PETA. Bul­ly­ing and ha­rass­ment is NEVER a so­lu­tion, and I won’t be a part of any or­ga­ni­za­tion that thinks oth­er­wise.”

In re­sponse, a PETA spokesman told the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter:

“We ap­pre­ci­ate that Khloe will re­main on the an­i­mals’ side by not wear­ing fur — that’s what counts. If one of our vol­un­teers is re­spon­si­ble, it doesn’t al­ter the fact that no an­i­mal de­serves to be elec­tro­cuted, shot or poi­soned for a bit of fur cloth­ing. Khloe is just de­fend­ing her sis­ter, and we know she has a good heart, so we wish her well. We just wish she also had more in­flu­ence on her sis­ter.

The re­al­ity star took part in PETA’S “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” cam­paign in 2008 and her decision to pose nude for the or­ga­ni­za­tion was cap­tured on a 2009 episode of the Kar­dashian fam­ily’s E! re­al­ity show, “Keep­ing Up With the Kar­dashi­ans.”

Kim Kar­dashian de­cided not to press charges the night she was flour-bombed, but, like her sis­ter, has since re­ferred to the in­ci­dent as bul­ly­ing. Her rep­re­sen­ta­tive had no com­ment on re­ports that she has changed her mind and de­cided to press charges.
