Real Housewives of Miami Star Joanna Krupa took to her Bravo Blog after Thursday’s episode to explain her campaign for PETA, why she wanted to do a comedic spin on her newest ad, and why she protested the Kardashian’s Store, Dash! You can read what she had to say below!
Joanna writes, “This is my third PETA campaign, and I wanted to make sure it showed a more comedic side to a very strong message. But I also wanted to make sure it was still controversial like my last campaign, because without controversy you don’t get the same impact in getting your message heard.
As a human being, it kills me to even think I need to be a voice for these defenseless animals, because I could never support anything that tortures animals. It’s sad that I even have to be part of this to try to get people to realize that buying fur is murder. These animals get skinned alive in fur farms where often they get beaten alive, drowned, and are kept in tiny cages where they die after going crazy from being confined their whole life in small spaces. I love PETA because they do the hard work and go undercover and launch videos of the horrific abuse that happens to animals around the world, from fur farms to laboratories that test on animals for cosmetics. Everyone should go and see these videos and open their hearts to how much these poor animals suffer. There is no reason for these kinds of barbaric murders: www.peta.org or www.furisdead.com.
Someone that wears a fur coat in 2012 is a person that needs to prove that they have status, because they are insecure and think wearing a fur coat makes them stand out. But in reality it makes them look arrogant, because we are not living in the Stone Age anymore.
I will fight until the day I die to be a voice for these amazing creatures.
The reason I decided to do a protest against the Kardashian store was because Khloe Kardashian did an anti-fur campaign years ago, and I found out they were selling fur at Dash. To me, someone like that is a hypocrite and I wanted to make sure they were exposed. Even during and after the protest, they made a statement they never sold fur. Well here is the proof.
Since then I am happy to say Dash in Calabasas closed and they reopened in West Hollywood, which is now fur free. To make it clear, I have nothing against the Kardashians, but I will always speak my mind when it comes to protecting animals. It’s not a direct attack against them. I am very passionate about helping the voiceless and defenseless and will never give that up. I will always fight to try to open people’s eyes to the cruelties out there and hope to change one person at a time. If someone can watch the fur videos of these animals get skinned alive and still purchase a fur coat, then to me they are not humans. I believe karma will get each and every one of them for hurting God’s creatures. I am against any type of cruelty to animals. Amen!”
