Khloé Kardashian Odom cut off ties with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals when the woman who threw flour on her sister Kim last week was revealed to have ties to the organization.

However, PETA has no ill will toward her.

"We appreciate that Khloé will remain on the animals' side by not wearing fur—that's what counts," a PETA rep said. "If one of our volunteers is responsible, it doesn't alter the fact that no animal deserves to be electrocuted, shot or poisoned for a bit of fur clothing."

"Khloé is just defending her sister, and we know she has a good heart, so we wish her well. We just wish she also had more influence on her sister," the rep continued.

The reality star added that she would still honor her word to not wear fur.

"I've been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me. As you all know, I don't condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior," she wrote on her blog.
The woman who dumped flour on Kim was Christina Cho, an animal-rights activist with ties to PETA, even though PETA itself claimed no responsibility in the flour incident. It occurred while Kim was introducing her new fragrance.

Khloé posed for PETA’s anti-fur campaign in 2008.
