(Newser) – The drama continues: Khloe Kardashian is now denouncing PETA, after the animal rights group offered its support to the woman who doused sister Kim Kardashian with flour. TMZ also reports that the woman in question, Christina Cho, is a big PETA activist who was even given an award from the group in 2010, though PETA denies any connection to the incident. Once Khloe—who posed nude for PETA in 2008—found that out, she took to her blog: "Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behavior."

"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," she continues, insisting that the flour incident is "violence and bullying," which she does not support. "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," she writes. "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."
