KIM Kardashian has been blasted by activists for wearing a fur coat in Paris on Monday.
In a fiery outburst from animal rights group PETA, a spokesperson claimed the pregnant socialite’s unborn baby could follow in its mother’s “greedy, self-absorbed” footsteps.
However, the organisation is hopeful that Kim and Kanye West’s child will have a greater social conscience than its mum.
PETA rep Wendy Wenger told RadarOnline: “Children of greedy, self-absorbed parents could follow their lead or they could break away and be alienated from and disgusted by them.
“Kim is a commodity; she is paid to wear things like fur, a particular makeup, or to shake hands with questionable people, so she is not a good example to a child or anyone else of how to show a social conscience.
“Thankfully, this child will be growing up in a time when most people know how blatantly cruel it is to buy a coat made from someone else’s skin, so there is hope.”
In a further dig at Kim, fuming Wendy said she hopes the reality TV star’s baby will be influenced by her aunt Khloe.
The younger Kardashian sibling once posed for one of PETA’s ‘I’d rather go naked’ campaigns – but she quit endorsing the group after Kim was pelted by a flour bomb launched by one of its demonstrators last year.
Wendy revealed: “Youngsters naturally identify and empathise with animals – so even though Kim and Kanye will undoubtedly serve as poor examples when it comes to kindness toward animals, perhaps their child will take after aunt Khloe and choose kindness by rejecting fur.”
This isn’t the first time Kim has incurred the wrath of the animal protestors.
She was compared to Disney villain Cruella de Ville by PETA in June last year after she was spotted sporting a pair of thigh-high Christian Louboutin python boots in Paris.
