Kim Kardashian is once again facing criticism from members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) — this time, though, it’s not for fur. Instead, the reality star was seen sporting Christian Loubitan boots made out of real python skin.
“They’d go well with a Dalmatian-fur coat, which is also illegal to sell in California and immoral to sell anywhere else,” PETA representative Wendy Wegner said in a prepared statement, according to Gossipcop.com, which reported Kim was spotted wearing the boots in Paris while shopping with boyfriend Kanye West.
Kardashian isn’t the first celebrity to be criticized for wearing snakeskin as an accessory. Jessica Simpson, Catherine Zeta Jones and Lindsay Lohan have all been the subject of PETA’s ire for doing so in the past.
