Even though Khloe Kardashian is trying to bring awareness to the devastating Australian bushfires, she's still coming under scrutiny for allegedly wearing fur in the past.
The endless fires in Australia have burned thousands of homes, and by some estimates, have killed millions of animals who were unable to escape the flames. Many celebrities have shown their support for the country, including by speaking up at the Golden Globes about the devastation.
Khloe Kardashian was doing her part, too, recently putting up a poster that read "Pray For Australia," with the message "The world needs to wake up."
On Instagram, mynameistriinu posted a split screen -- on one side is Kardashian's "Pray For Australia" poster, and the other is a picture of Kardashian in her Halloween costume, when she played Cruella de Vil.
mynameistriinu wrote, "So sad when animals die during fire, much better when they’re anally and vaginally electrocuted and they’re skin is ripped off their bodies (sometimes even when their conscious!) for nothing other than your vanity!"
Kardashian Denies Her Costume Had Fur
Kardashian wrote back, saying she wasn't wearing real fur in that photo, and admonished the poster for jumping to conclusions.
"I am wearing a Halloween costume. It's not real fur. But keep spreading your vile hate instead of focusing on real issues."
She went on:
"Why must people assume and attack so quickly? You have some clear frustrations darling and they are completely misdirected. My advice to you would be, don't attack people in general. But if you choose to waste your energy on attacking a complete stranger then at least know all of your information prior. Happy 2020."
Kardashian's comment was later deleted.
Fur Real, Cruella de Ville Was Mean
Cruella de Vil, a cartoon character from the Disney movie 101 Dalmations, was often seen in that movie wearing white puffy fur.
In one scene, Cruella de Vil declares her love for fur: "My only true love, darling. I live for furs, I worship furs. After all, is there a woman in all this wretched world who doesn't?"
Fans Say Nope, It Did Have Fur
Fans then piled on, and began to repost a November Instagram message from Daniel's Leather that had Kardashian's Cruella de Ville costume.
"@khloekardashian came to me with this vision i knew it will not be an easy task but i am so glad that the final product came out perfect . Also wanna thank@janellermiller for her help in this imp project . I am so proud Of the fact that anytime it’s a huge project people always approach daniels leather."
The new repost stated that yes, Kardashian's Halloween costume had real fur.
Who Knows For Sure?
It doesn't look good for Kardashian, although she had campaigned in the past for people to not wear fur, and announcing her support of PETA. That support was later withdrawn, however, after a PETA activist threw a bag of flour onto Khloe's sister, Kim.
At the time, Kardashian released a statement:
"We all need to practice what we preach. I will still continue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer support PETA. Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won't be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise."
