Khloe Kardashian has quit as a spokesperson for PETA, and now the animal rights group has responded to the reality star's departure.

In a statement, PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said:

"We appreciate that Khloe will remain on the animals' side by not wearing fur—that's what counts. If one of our volunteers is responsible, it doesn't alter the fact that no animal deserves to be electrocuted, shot, or poisoned for a bit of fur clothing. 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."
Khloe announced that she would no longer be a PETA supporter after her sister Kim was attacked by former PETA volunteer, Christina Cho, at an event last week. She blogged:
"I’ve been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me. As you all know, I don’t condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions — I personally don’t wear fur but that doesn’t mean I am going to force my views on anyone else, ESPECIALLY by violating them. I am a very proud sister right now, because Kim handled last week’s incident like a champ. She got cleaned up and was back out there in a matter of minutes. Go Kimmie!”

    khloe's being hypocritical though cuz she branding peta with the same brush and holding them responsible for one activists actions, yet she doesn't;t believe its right to be held accountable for the rest of her family's attitude towards fur...if she really believed in the charity it would take more then this..to turn her. The flour accident was out of order, but the kardashians are making a much bigger deal out of it like anti bullying go see kids in school being pelted with much worse and deal with it everyday..its wrong to even put what happened to Kim in the same league. I'm done.

    I have no interest in the show and believe that it contributes to teenagers lack of understanding of the 'real' world. I am all for people getting ahead but opulant wealth that is not put to good use is wasted. The killing of animals to wear garments is disgusting. I support animal welfare rights but PETA is hardly my favourite with it being reported that 97% of disowned domesticated animals are being put to death - still it is the fault of human beings once again because they buy puppy farm and kitten farm animals and do not de-sex - get an animal from the pound. The lady in question shouldn't have thrown flour but at the end of the day it was flour which will wash off but Kim can't bring the animals back to life that have died for her vanity - if she were an eskimo I could kind of understand but she isn't and doesn't need to wear fur!

    Khloe is completely right. It's obvious PETA lied about not knowing about any of it. I do support PETA in the sense of protecting animals, but I also don't support bullying. This in a sense, is bullying. It's sickening. Khloe made the right decision to resign, I would do the same thing. I've lost all my respect for PETA.

    I agree that the act against kim was not right, but if Khloe was a good ambassador should begin to convince her family to not wear fur... just saying .. eventhough she's my fav kardashian

    I thought you were the "smart" one, Khloe. PETA claimed earlier they didn't know anything about it....
