Kim Kardashian’s highly anticipated(?) book Selfish was released this week, and what better way to celebrate by signing books for fans and getting called a “murderer”? The Selfie Queen hit a NYC Barnes and Noble Tuesday, where swarms of fans were excited to get their copies signed. But there were also a few in attendance ready to let Kim know she’s a “murderer” and a “terrible person.”
It sounds bad, but you haven’t fully experienced the awkwardness until you’ve watched the part that was caught on video. A cordial Kim is sitting, signing books when an activist gets in her face and says, “I just want to say you’re the most disgusting human being on this planet. Shame on you for supporting the fur industry!” A man behind the camera approaches her and asks, “Can you make it out to all the animals that have been tortured and killed for you to wear a fur?”
This isn’t the first time Kim has gotten the wrath for wearing fur along with Kanye and North. In March, Sharon Osbourne said it makes her “physically sick” that Kim dressed her toddler in fur coats.
Clearly Kim is used to the criticism and seemed unfazed by the situation, handling it like the media beast that she is.
