Kim Kardashian West shuts down her haters!
On Tuesday, the KUWTK star posted the (above) photo of daughter North West wearing one of her old outfits.
However, the 38-year-old pointed out that the coat in question is FAUX — so she would not get slammed by anti-fur activists.
In fact, the reality TV personality said she replaced all of her animal-made coats with animal-friendly ones.
Kardashian added the caption:
“Remember when I wore this! She picked out the same look lol but fun fact- I took all of my fave furs and remade them in faux fur.”
Despite Kim’s preemptive message, haters STILL had something to say! They penned:
“You only said that so you won’t get dragged for having real fur.”
“When you fake a caption to save yourself from trollers.”
“no you didn’t . you only said that so you won’t get dragged for having real fur”
“I don’t believe you”
“You shoulda jumped on the no cruelty train a while ago.”
“Animal still dead tho”
“Why re-making them? You’ve already done the damage”
“I think you’re confused about how furs work.”
“Please consider not even using faux fur. It still promotes the idea of real fur and a lot of products, particularly out of China, are marked ‘fake’ when they’re not. Animals depend on us to take care of them. The fur industry is one of the most horrific and needless industries that brutally tortures and creates great suffering for animals who have a deep capacity to feel fear and pain. #furisdead #compassionisfashion’”
Kanye West‘s wife has long been criticized for wearing fur garments. In fact, back in 2012, she was famously flour-bombed on a red carpet by a PETA supporter.
Luckily, it seems Kim’s relationship with the animal rights organization has evolved. The nonprofit wrote in the comments section:
“LOVE it… Thank you for making compassionate changes that save animals and showing the world that #FurFree styles are the future!”
Additionally, other social media users wrote:
“I love that you aren’t supporting the fur industry anymore! That’s awesome!”
“we love a NO FUR queen”
“Thank you for only wearing faux fur”
“Glad you finally changed your mind. Faux fur!!”
“thank you… it’s never to late to be the change for animals”
“Aww Kim!! Yes sis faux fur for the win!!”
“Yassssss kim faux fur is so much cuter on you. So classy”
Kim is keeping up with the times!
