The photos don't lie: Khloe Kardashian, now a spokeswoman for PETA
, did in fact wear fur in the recent past.
But a reality star can change, she says on her blog
Wednesday, answering Internet criticism and explaining why she decided to "swear off fur."
"As some of you might have seen today, there are several people who have taken to the web calling me a hypocrite and posting photos of me wearing fur," she writes. "The reason PETA approached me initially is because in my past I did wear fur and they wanted to educate me on the brutal ways in which animals are skinned for their pelts."
After watching a PETA video, she writes, "I was so horrified that I immediately swore off fur. I just wanted to let you know the real story behind my conscious decision and compassionate change of heart. I have changed my ways and I hope that many other people will as well."
