Kim Kardashian takes flak from PETA for wearing python boots in Paris
PETA compared reality star Kim Kardashian to Cruella De Vil after the better-looking half of Kimye was seen strolling through the streets of Paris, France wearing chic python boots this Tuesday.
According to Gossip Cop, the animal rights advocacy group released a statement vilifying Kardashian for her thigh-high Christian Louboutin python boots.
“They’d go well with a Dalmatian-fur coat,” PETA spokesperson Wendy Wegner said of the python boots Kim Kardashian donned in a statement sent to Gossip Cop, ”Which is also illegal to sell in California and immoral to sell anywhere else.”
(Of course, Dalmatians don’t grow up to 20 feet in length. And Pogo certainly doesn’t feed on anything that moves up to, and including, alligators in the Florida Everglades.) Said boots were made out of python skin obtained by hunters. A pair designed by Christian Louboutin costs thousands of dollars.
Gossip Cop reported that PETA and Kim Kardashian have previously clashed before over the latter’s fashion choices. That infamous “flour bombing” of Kardashian this March? PETA supported the culprit who initiated the attack. And when Kardashian’s new boyfriend, Kanye West, called PETA (and Kim’s estranged husband Kris Humphries) out in his song ‘Theraflu,’ PETA called West “a man with no empathy for animals or human beings.”
