PETA v. Kim Kardashian. Who would win?

After the reality star was hit with a flour bomb on the red carpet last week, rumors swirled that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals was responsible. After all, the organization is known for throwing red paint on fur-loving celebrities, so this is hardly out of the ordinary for the extreme animal rights group.

PETA denies that it had anything to do with the incident, but the organization still wants a part in all the publicity. (RELATED: Flour power: Kim Kardashian’s red carpet surprise)

A PETA spokesman told Celebuzz, “We don’t believe Kim would be so shortsighted as to go after this woman, but if she does, we’ll definitely look at how to maximize exposure to the cruel fur industry, and that could mean defending the activist if she wishes.”

The “animal rights” organization has a vendetta against the reality star because she likes to wear fur. (RELATED: Documents: PETA kills more than 95 percent of pets in its care)

“How much better it would be if she decided to evolve and enhance her image by donating her vulgar furs and exotic-animal skins to the homeless,” the spokesman said.

PETA denied knowing the identity of the flour-bomber and said it is not investigating the incident any further.

Kardashian said she may not even press charges, but she doesn’t want the red carpet incident to go unnoticed.

She told E!: “I am just going to think about it, because I don’t want someone to think they can really get away with that. So we are going to handle that.”
