Kim Kardashian has hit out at the woman who attacked her with flour during a red carpet appearance on Thursday, insisting the incident was a form of bullying.
The reality TV star was promoting her new fragrance, True Reflection, at a charity event for women’s organization Dress For Success at the London Hotel in West Hollywood when an unidentified animal rights campaigner threw white powder at her as she posed for photos and chatted to reporters.

The socialite, who was targeted over her love of fur, admits she was stunned by the incident but she was determined to brush herself off and return to the event out of respect for the party’s organisers and their guests.

She tells TMZ.com, “What was sad about the event was we were supporting Dress For Success… I didn’t want their organization to be overshadowed by this… It’s just sad when someone, you know, whatever your beliefs are, if you’re acting in a violent way and doing something that is illegal, that’s not OK and that’s bullying and I don’t promote that.”

The attacker was detained by police but Kardashian declined to press charges – because she’s got too many other legal issues to resolve.

She quips, “Don’t I have one too many lawsuits going on right now? Do you think I really need to add another one? I mean I thought about it, but to be honest, it would have taken (too long). I would have had to go down there (to the police station), wasted about an hour and a half of the event… and I didn’t wanna hold up the event, so it was really me respecting other people’s time, even though I don’t think that someone like that should get away with those types of actions.”

Kardashian has now vowed to employ extra security guards to protect her from any similar incidents in future, but she insists the animal rights activist’s messy protest won’t stop her from wearing fur: “What I choose to do in my personal life, I think is a personal choice and that’s that… At the end of the day, if you’re trying to promote non-violence towards animals, why are you trying to be violent towards humans?”
