Frequent fur-wearers the Kardashians are the target of a new online petition urging the fashionista clan to stop selling fur at their boutique chain Dash. Models Joanna Krupa and Katie Cleary, who started the petition, are outraged at the reality-TV family’s repeated use of fur in their various retail ventures, as well as for personal use, citing their responsibility as role models and trendsetters to set a good example for their impressionable fans. In a recent interview about the petition, Krupa expressed disappointment in Khloe Kardashian, who posed for a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals anti-fur campaign in 2008. Currently, the petition has gathered more than 21,000 of its goal of 30,000 signatures.
