Last week, Kim Kardashian was flour bombed. She was attending an event and someone crept up behind her and threw a big ol’ handful of flour at her back. At the time, Kim just laughed it off, but not anymore. No, because now, she’s very upset and she would like to press charges for the devastating attack.
Here’s Kim’s explanation:
“I said earlier no I wasn’t [going to file a complaint],” Kim said. “I am just going to think about it, because I don’t want someone to think they can really get away with that. So we are going to handle that.”
“Now that I think about it and had some time to digest it,” she added, “I think, ‘What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?’ It’s scary. And what’s even scarier is this woman acted as if she was a part of the press. She just came out of nowhere! And so we are definitely changing things up a little bit, amping up security, taking some measures, and…I’m gonna definitely deal with it because it is not acceptable.”
That’s actually pretty fair, and I imagine it would be scary to see that someone without the best intentions could get so close to you. It’s still just flour, but I get where Kim is coming from on that part.
Here’s where things really start to get fun though: the rumor is that the woman who threw the flour is actually an important member of PETA. Apparently the motive was to get back at Kim for wearing fur, and the woman even yelled “fur hag” at Kim while she was doing the deed. PETA is saying that they didn’t have anything to do with the incident, but they still gave a statement:
“If she presses charges, at least people will be constantly reminded of her selfish, callous disregard for the cruel deaths that she causes by wearing fur. How much better it would be if she decided to evolve and enhance her image by donating her vulgar furs and exotic-animal skins to the homeless. The activist acted from the heart, something Kim doesn’t seem to have. If anything, Kim should get a life, the very thing that she denies animals.”
Snap. Kim sure got told, didn’t she? PETA even offered to pay the mysterious flour bomber’s court fees, which is just so sweet.
But wait, there’s more! Since the gossip started that PETA was behind the whole thing, PETA activist and sister of the victim, Khloe Kardashian, has decided to cut all ties with PETA. Here’s her statement on that:
“Hi dolls. I’m sure you all heard what happened to Kim last week (thank you SO much for the love and support you all showed her), and I just received word that the woman responsible has very close ties to PETA, despite PETA publicly stating otherwise.
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 anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me.
As you all know, I don’t condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions — I personally don’t wear fur but that doesn’t mean I am going to force my views on anyone else, ESPECIALLY by violating them.
I am a very proud sister right now, because Kim handled last week’s incident like a champ. She got cleaned up and was back out there in a matter of minutes. Go Kimmie!
We all need to practice what we preach. 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.”
Well, there you go! We’re all up to date on the flour drama, I believe. Was it as thrilling for you as it was for me?
