Khloe Kardashian Odom has cut all ties with PETA after the animal rights organization stuck by Christina Cho, the woman accused of dumping a bag of flour on Kim Kardashian at a recent red carpet event. It's a big step for Khloe, who was very active in her support of the group who posed for their anti-fur campaign in 2008.
"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," Khloe wrote on her blog on March 26. "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… 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."
A family insider tells OK! it's no surprise that Khloe would choose her sister over PETA.
"She's always going to have Kim's back. She'd take a bullet for her family," says the insider. "So if it's a choice between Kim and PETA, even though she and Lamar [Odom] are big into animal rights, there's no choice. PETA can kiss Khloe's endorsement goodbye."
PETA initially claimed that the flour bomber was not affiliated with their group, but it later came out that she has worked in the organization's offices.
However, the group issued a statement supporting Khloe's decision: "We appreciate that Khloe will remain on the animals' side by not wearing dur — that's what counts," a rep said. "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."
