Khloe Kardashian’s Coat Makes A Confusing Statement

I say confusing because, while Khloe posed for PETA a few years ago, I’m pretty sure the Kardashians in general — they are basically one hive mind, kind of like the Borg — don’t spend much time thinking about cruelty towards animals. And since this fur looks awfully real to me, my hunch was that the “Fuck Yo Fur” statement on the back is meant to be, like, ironic and kind of twisted. But on Twitter, Khloe tweeted a link to a video of her wearing the fur, writing, “Fake fur all day people!!!” which I guess means the fur is fake and the spray-painted message on the back is totally earnest. What’s not in question is the coat’s hideousness. Real or fake, that shit is fugs. [Photos: Splash News]

If this story was a fairytale, it would go something like this: once upon a time, there was a duchess and a fake fur coat, and two fur organizations who will never live happily ever after. The actual story goes something like this: apparently Kate Middleton recently wore a coat lined with fake fur. The International Fur Trade Federation, which promotes and celebrates fur, posted a photo of her on their website, describing her chosen attire as “a classy fur-lined coat.” This pissed off PETA, the anti-fur organization, which got in touch with Middleton’s representatives, who issued the following response: “To state that the Duchess is wearing fur is not only false but offensive … to portray the new Duchess wearing something so blatantly cruel and contrary to her country’s values is insulting.” Now PETA and the Duchess’ office are demanding IFTF remove the photo and issue a retraction. The IFTF has yet to respond. We’re not sure how this will play out, but we do give the Duchess props for using this random scandal to make a pretty strong anti-fur statement.
