Topless Protestors Storm Notre Dame In Celebration Of The Pope's Resignation!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayEtc.Politik

WARNING: NUDITY!

In France, eight Femen activists undressed and went topless in support of Pope Benedict XVI's resignation (above) — jumping restricted areas and ringing iconic bells.

The Pope wasn't the only reason they did this, though, as they claim it was also in support of gay marriage, but then security showed up and escorted the women out of the cathedral. Womp.

Their bodies were painted with slogans such as 'Pope no more' and 'Bye bye Benoit.' They described themselves as "provocateurs," which must be French for "topless bell-ringers!" LOLz!

We're glad nobody was hurt, and we can definitely see the reason behind wanting to stand up for same-sex marriage, but we also wonder why it's so volatile when it's supposed to be in celebration of the Pope stepping down! Doesn't seem like a celebration to us!

We bet tourists were shocked! They got waaaaaay more than they thought they would during their visit! Ha!

PETA Offers To Pay Legal Fees For Flour Bomber!

Filed under: Kim KardashianPETAFur

peta-supports-kim-kardashians-flour-bomb.jpg

Even though PETA is denying any involvement in the flour-bombing of Kim Kardashian they have offered to pay the legal fees of the assailant.

A PETA spokesperson said:

"We don't believe Kim would be so shortsighted as to go after this woman, but if she does, we'll definitely look at how to maximize exposure to the cruel fur industry, and that could mean defending the activist if she wishes."

They think that Kimmy K should donate all her furs to the homeless.

Kim seems to be ignoring PETA when it comes to fur and is focusing on sending a message to any future flour-bombers.

On deciding whether or not to press charges, she said:

"I am just going to think about it, because I don't want someone to think they can really get away with that. So we are going to handle that."

We think we actually side with Kim on this one, PETA shouldn't support an attacker and bully.

Kim Kardashian Gets Flour-Bombed By PETA Activist! May Press Charges!

Filed under: Kim KardashianPhotos!PETAFur

Gurl, we don't blame you!

Kim Kardashian posed for pics at the launch of her new fragrance True Reflection Thursday night when out of nowhere, some crazy PETA activist jumped out and threw FLOUR all over Kim's backside (pics above)!!

Kim totally played it cool though and was escorted off the carpet where she and her mom Kris Jenner dusted her off with a blowdryer. She later came out and joined the party, which was held for a special charity organization, Dress for Success.

The woman has yet to be identified, but Kim is actually considering pressing charges, even though at the event, she tried her best to "laugh it off." According to Kim, she wants to send a message to this lady that she's not going to get away with it.

This is what she had to say about the incident:

"I was laughing it off earlier and, you know, I think that is the only thing I knew how to do at the time. But I just think it is such a shame that someone like that…would ruin an event, or attempt to ruin an event, that was based around, not only my fragrance, but this organization, Dress For Success. I mean that's what the event was about. These women flew in from all over the country to be a part of this event, that are underprivileged women, that really got the shine taken away from them a little bit. That's why I am calling in now. I feel bad that it was kind of derailed from that.

I said earlier no I wasn't [going to file a complaint]. I am just going to think about it, because I don't want someone to think they can really get away with that. So we are going to handle that.

Now that I think about it and had some time to digest it, I think, 'What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?' It's scary. And what's even scarier is this woman acted as if she was a part of the press. She just came out of nowhere! And so we are definitely changing things up a little bit, amping up security, taking some measures, and…I'm gonna definitely deal with it because it is not acceptable."

Kim definitely did the right thing by holding her head high, putting on a brave face and werqing that party for charity! The event was for an amazing cause, after all!

She did have one more thing to say though….

Calling the woman a "bully," she later added:

"If you're trying to promote nonviolence towards animals … why are you trying to be violent towards humans?"

At least it was only flour!!
