Models protest Kardashian boutique DASH for fur sales
Armed with signs and a Care2 petition containing over 140,000 signatures of support, models Joanna Krupa and Katie Cleary staged a protest at DASH to condemn the boutique for selling fur.
Cleary, a former America’s Next Top Model contestant, claims the fashion boutique, owned by the Kardashian sisters, sold her a $274 rabbit fur mix vest, shown on a receipt dated February 6.
In a statement to RadarOnline.com, “world’s sexiest swimsuit model” and former Dancing with the Stars contestant Krupa said, ‘One of the most influential families in the entertainment industry that could help give animals a voice on a large scale are the Kardashians. As a fashion-forward family with their clothing line in stores all over the US, they have the power to influence millions of people around the world.’
The models and activists condemn the skinning of animals for fashion. “You don’t need fur anywhere,” Cleary said. “We’re not cavemen.”
The protest comes after Kim Kardashian was floured bombed for her unapologetic use of fur in her wardrobe. Following the flour bombing, Khloe Kardashian, a former anti-fur PETA spokesperson, pulled her support for the animal-rights group, claiming her sister was violated, despite PETA not having carried out the act.
