Kourtney and her husband Travis Baker actively promote themselves as vegans.
Kourtney Kardashian has been criticized over one of her latest posts on Instagram, where she poses in a very racy blue ensemble.
While many fans attacked her for her dressing style, which seems to have changed a lot after she got involved and married Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, others were upset with the fabric used in her barely-there $9,000 LaQuan Smith outfit.
The expectant mother of three wore a cobalt blue mini skirt with an exposed zip at the back, teamed with a very cropped and long-sleeved jacket with fur accents
While some found the outfit inappropriate for a pregnant woman, others slammed the media mogul after realizing that the jacket described on the designer’s website is made from 100% lamb leather, and the skirt is created using 100% shearling, a processed form of lambskin.
‘Shame on you’
Following her social media post, fans posted a flurry of comments to share their disgust.
“So you won’t eat meat but have no problem murdering and skinning BABIES, preggo, just so you can post disgusting pictures??” wrote one user.
Another added: “Worst outfit ever and it’s made of lambs … stop abusing animals!”
A third commented: “Disgusting animal abuser! You killed the poor lambs to wear that U G L Y jacket. Shame on you! It’s time to get the tubes tied coz y’all are no good to society. The world doesn’t need any more Kardashian clowns .”
“Why pose in leather outfits but then push for vegan food…personally, I would not want you repping the group at all…continue on with your way of life, and don’t keep pretending who you are,” admonished a user.
A fifth critical comment read: “Shame on you for wearing the skin of a murdered lamb. Please stop referring to yourself as vegan. You are selfish and could be doing so much good with your platform but instead, you choose to promote violence.”
Another angry commentator wrote: “Lambskin? Your baby will be coated with the sins of your promoting animal murder that went into making that barely-there outfit. You might as well have just gone naked since you’re hardly covering much anyway. Naked, rather than flaunt the murder of innocent lambs all for the sake of your worldly and materialistic cravings. Flaunt your own skin as opposed to the skin of others. I used to think you were a righteous person.”
Is Kourtney really a vegan?
Kourtney is known to be highly inclined towards a largely vegan lifestyle. Her lifestyle blog, Poosh, states she is “(mostly, like 95%) vegan.”
It further states that Kourtney avoids meat-free and is easing into the lifestyle without being too strict about any specific diet.
“If you’re thinking about becoming vegan, you can make the shift in small waves if that’s easier for you,” the blog reads.
“Start by replacing meat with plant-based options once a week and increase from there.”
Her husband has also been vegetarian since his teenage years before transitioning to a vegan life after he survived a plane crash in 2008.
The couple also starred in an advertisement campaign for Daring Chicken in 2022. Crediting Baker for influencing her way of eating, she said at the time: “I’ve been on a health and wellness journey for the past 13 years, which has made me super conscious of what I put into my body and my kids’ bodies.
“I’m not fully vegan, but Travis has helped me keep to a mostly plant-based diet, which is so much easier with Daring,” she continued. “I honestly cannot believe how much it tastes like chicken. There are a lot of plant proteins out there, but we’re always looking for options that are super clean with all-natural ingredients.”
Kardashians and their dubious ethical claims
Kourtney isn’t the only member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan that has been involved in controversies regarding her fashion choices.
Sister Kim, who is probably the most famous of the Kardashian family to promote meat-free eating, and is said to have ditched fur in the past, is still notorious for her wardrobe choices that involve animal-sourced materials.
The Kardashians’ online store, Kardashian Kloset sells second-hand clothing and has been criticized by PETA for selling rare fur and exotic animal-skinned goods.
At one point Kim had 13 products for sale – including mink fur coats, python-skinned skirts, and crocodile handbags worth thousands of dollars for sale on their thrift store website.
In April, PETA demanded that the Kardashians surrender the listed animal-skinned items, on their thrift store website, so that they could distribute them to the homeless.
In a statement sent to US Sun, PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said: “Nothing can undo the suffering of foxes, minks, snakes, and alligators who were killed to make a jacket or a pair of shoes, but the Kardashians can still do some good with these items.
“PETA has called on this family — which has so much — to donate them to us for use in educational displays and to distribute to unhoused people, refugees, and others in tremendous need.”
