Fans of E! Television's hit reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians know that Khloe Kardashian is no shrinking violet. Probably the most outspoken of the Kardashian clan, Khloe tells it like it is, so we were thrilled when we got the chance to show her exactly what the fur industry does to animals. The end result is PETA's gorgeous new "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" ad starring none other than Khloe herself.
Khloe and her family have taken not only Hollywood but the entire country by storm. Everyone wants to know what she and her famous siblings are up to, who their dates are, and what they are wearing. In Khloe's case, rest assured that it won't be fur.
The self-proclaimed animal lover admitted that she had no idea what happened to animals killed for their fur until a few of our videos opened up her eyes. "The videos are so graphic but they are so necessary for people to watch. I'm so grateful that I did get the opportunity to see them. I had no idea that's how these animals are treated."
Khloe says she agreed to pose naked because she wants people to know that she is serious about the fur campaign and that she wanted to do her part. Find out what else Khloe told us in this exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
As Khloe points out, being educated about what happens to animals who are killed for fashion is key. Please help us spread the word about the cruelty inherent in the fur industry by streaming Khloe's video on your MySpace page. And if you haven't already done so, please sign PETA's Pledge to Go Fur-Free today, because animals should never be fashion victims.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
