Kim Kardashian, who was recently flour bombed, is poised for more trouble, as her Calabasas-based store, DASH, has become the target of yet another protest organisation.
Swimsuit models Joanna Krupa and Katie Cleary, backed by social activism site Care 2, plan on presenting the Kardashian family with a petition signed by 140,000 people demanding that they stop selling furs in store and online.
The animal rights activists plan on protesting at the Kardashians’ flagship store on Monday.
“One of the most influential families in the entertainment industry that could help give animals a voice on a large scale are the Kardashians,” the Daily Mail quoted Krupa as telling RadarOnline.
“As a fashion-forward family with their clothing line in stores all over the US, they have the power to influence millions of people around the world,” she said.
The group zeroed in on DASH after the 31-year-old announced her intention to relocate their store to Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood.
“This weekend Kourt, Khloe, and I all met with designer Jeff Andrews to start working on the new DASH LA store,” Kim wrote on her blog.
“Since we’ve opened DASH stores in Miami and NYC we decided that we want to re-vamp our west coast store and open a brand new LA location!” she added.
