The folks at PETA are ticked off with Kim Kardashian … again. This time, it’s not fur that has them up in arms, but Kim’s Birkin crocodile skin handbag.
The reality TV star was spotted rocking the bag in Los Angeles last week, which prompted PETA to release this statement:
“For every alligator or crocodile-skin accessory, an animal was likely beaten but still conscious and able to feel excruciating pain as his or her skin was peeled off.
These animals feel fear and pain and they don’t want to die. Alligators and crocodiles have no real legal protection, but they have done nothing to deserve the violent treatment that they endure.
PETA urges consumers to watch Joaquin Phoenix‘s video expose of the cruel exotic-skins industry and vow today never to buy items made from the skin of alligators, snakes or crocodiles.”
Kim’s feud with PETA has been well documented. If you remember, just earlier this year Kim was flour bombed by a woman with ties to the animal right’s group.
