Khloe Kardashian - Kardashian Steps Down As Peta Spokeswoman Following Flour Attack

Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian has quit as a spokesperson for animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) following reports suggesting a militant member of the organisation was the woman who flour bombed her sister Kim at an event last week (22Mar12).
Kim Kardashian was pelted with flour minutes after she arrived at a charity event in West Hollywood on Thursday night.
The attack was reportedly prompted by the socialite's refusal to stop wearing fur.
Peta bosses insisted the flour attack had nothing to do with them as Kardashian threatened to press charges against the group.
And now her little sister has stepped down as one of the organisation's famous faces following the latest news about the incident.
In a post on her blog on Monday (26Mar12), she wrote, "I just received word that the woman responsible has very close ties to Peta, despite Peta publicly stating otherwise. Not only has Peta lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behavior.
"Bullying and harassment is Never a solution and I won’t be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise."
Animal lover Khloe Kardashian caused a stir in 2008 when she stripped for one of Peta's 'I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur' billboards.
A Peta spokeswoman says, "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."
