After the controversial flour-bombing of TV personality Kim Kardashian, the assailant was identified as Christina Cho, one of the most influential members of the animal rights group, PETA.
According to previous reports, PETA has denied any connection to the Kim Kardashian attacker, Christina Cho, right before Khloe Kardashian decided to cut all ties with the organization. It turns out that the flour bomber, Christina Cho, has been involved in anti-fur stunts in support of PETA before. Cho once grabbed a microphone from designer Donna Karan at a Women’s Conference in an attempt to rant about the use of fur in fashion, and won an award from PETA back in 2010.
It was believed that Christina Cho, the woman who struck 31-year-old Kim Kardashian with flour at her perfume launch had shouted “fur hag” in the process. However, PETA said shortly afterwards that they were not in any way involved with the incident.
But now, PETA is addressing Khloe Kardashian’s accusation that they must have had something to do with her sister Kim getting attacked, because Christina Cho is the sister of the woman who arranged Khloe’s own involvement with the animal rights group.
“I am not my sister’s keeper,” Michelle Cho said in an interview with E! News. She added, “but I love her [Christina Cho] and have seen her sacrifice a lot of herself as a terrific activist. We work in different ways to help stop animal suffering. It is Christina who got me into the movement to protect animals, and I’ll always be grateful to her for opening my eyes.”
A PETA spokesperson chimed in, saying, “If Christina Cho is the person who sprinkled flour on Kim Kardashian, we know Christina as a very kind, wonderful longtime volunteer. At a reception at our LA office last month she was with a group who watched this video and was visibly shaken. We will support her totally.”
As for Khloe Kardashian cutting ties with PETA, the group says they accept it and that there are no hard feelings:
“We appreciate that Khloe will remain on the animals’ side by not wearing fur — that’s what counts,” a rep for PETA said. “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.”
