Commenting on Christina Cho's involvement in the red carpet attack, PETA official Michelle Cho says in a statement, 'We work in different ways to help stop animal suffering.'
The sister of former PETA activist Christina Cho, who was accused of attacking Kim Kardashian with flour on a recent red carpet event, has broken her silence. A day after Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian announced her decision to cut ties with the animal rights group, Michelle Cho issued a statement, stressing that she's "not my sister's keeper."
Though so, the senior communications manager for PETA noted in her e-mailed statement, "I love her and have seen her sacrifice a lot of herself as a terrific activist. We work in different ways to help stop animal suffering." She further said, "It is Christina who got me into the movement to protect animals, and I'll always be grateful to her for opening my eyes."
PETA additionally stated, "If Christina Cho is the person who sprinkled flour on Kim Kardashian, we know Christina as a very kind, wonderful long time volunteer. At a reception at our LA office last month she was with a group who watched this video and was visibly shaken." The organization added, "We will support her totally."
Kim had a bag of white flour dumped on her head on the red carpet for the launch of True Reflection on Thurday, March 22. Hours after the incident, PETA denied their involvement. Days later, Christina who has been referred to in the past by the group as a "superstar activist," was identified as the flour bomber by TMZ.
Upon learning about Christina's connection to PETA, Kim's sister Khloe wrote on her blog, "Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behavior." Saying that she is "absolutely disgusted" by the group's behavior, she declared, "Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won't be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise."
