Reality star Kim Kardashian has addressed making late week headlines in light of footage showing her getting decked out with flour by an animal rights activist catching a growing viral buzz.
While she tried to make sense of the attacker's actions, Kardashian could not understand why someone would use violence to spark a message.
Kim Kardashian says the woman who attacked her with flour last night is nothing more than a "bully" ... and claims the only reason she's NOT pressing charges ... is because she's just too busy. Kim just called in to "TMZ Live" ... and gave us the blow-by-blow about how she handled herself when a female animal activist broke on to the red carpet and attacked her at an event for her new fragrance. Kim tells us ... she tried her best to "laugh it off" ... and refused to leave the event because she didn't want to disrespect all of the people who worked so hard to put the event together. And while Kim says she understands the flour bomber's beliefs ... KK raised a great point -- "If you're trying to promote nonviolence towards animals ... why are you trying to be violent towards humans?" (TMZ)
It was not initially clear why Kardashian was targeted for the flour bomb.
Kim Kardashian was hit with a 'flour bomb" Thursday night -- the latest in a series of benign celebrity "bombings" that can technically be considered assault and battery. Kardashian showed up at the West Hollywood launch party for her new perfume and was walking down the red carpet when a protester threw a bag of flour at her, the Los Angeles Times reports. Kardashian, covered in white powder, was quickly ushered to safety. It's not clear why the flour bomber attacked Kardashian. But the use of benign substances to "bomb" celebrities and public figures seems to be on the rise -- and legal consequences can follow. (Reuters)
She is reportedly known for having organizations like PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) target her.
Kardashian has been photographed wearing fur at public events many times, most recently at Kanye West's Paris fashion show. In November, PETA placed a billboard in West Hollywood showing Kardashian in a fur vest next to a picture of live foxes with the words, "The babies miss their mother. Is she on your back?"

Recently Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame got involved with a new PETA campaign.
Atlanta-based Brick Squad hip-hop artist Waka Flocka Flame never stops when it comes to raising awareness about animal protection. In advance of his sophomore album Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family, Waka earns a "Round of Applause" from animals everywhere for his second PETA ad, which is aimed at stopping chaining, fighting, and other abuse of dogs. Waka's adorable co-star in the ad is Daphna, a rescued dog from the Atlanta Humane Society who is named after PETA's vice president of cruelty investigations. (Crunk & Disorderly)
