Khloe Kardashian wears faux fur coat to take a stance against real fur in fashion

Khloe Kardashian is using fashion to make a personal statement on animal rights.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star walked the New York City streets on Monday wearing a nearly floor-length faux fur coat with the words "F-CK YO FUR" spray painted in red on the back, Us Weeklyreported.
"F*ck Yo Fur!!! Fake fur all day people!!" Kardashian tweeted Tuesday as a follow-up advertisement.
"No I'm NOT with PETA! I stand for kindness. Treat others the way you want to be treated. This includes the ones w/a voice and the ones wo."
Back in December 2008, Kardashian posed nude in a PETA ad for the campaign, "Fur? I'd rather go naked."
The 29-year-old reality TV star wrote about her involvement with PETA on her blog at the time.
"I never was against wearing fur because I truly did not know how these animals were tortured and killed in order to have these coats and accessories. I am done with fur forever and I have now found so many amazing faux fur lines that are great alternatives for women who love the look and love animals," she posted.
However, Kardashian stopped representing PETA -- although her views on animals and fur remained the same -- after a member of the organization threw flour on her sisterKim Kardashian at a red carpet event in March 2012.
Kim pressed charges against the anti-fur activist shortly after the incident.
