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!!

Chinese Government Spokesman Says Christian Bale Should Feel Embarrassed Over Incident

Filed under: Icky Icky PooChristian BalePerezTV

We have a feeling that Christian will NOT agree with this!

Last week while Christian Bale was in China for the premiere of his new movie The Flowers of War, he traveled eight hours from Beijing to meet Chinese human rights activist/lawyer Chen Guangcheng, but he was aggressively turned away by police (above).

Now, Chinese government spokesman Liu Weimin has spoken up about the incident, and he believes that Christian should feel embarrassed

Christian Bale Gets Into Trouble With Police…In China

We're just glad he wasn't badly hurt.

While in China for the premiere of his new movie The Flowers of War, Christian Bale traveled eight hours away from Beijing to meet Chinese human rights activist/lawyer Chen Guangcheng…and it did NOT go as planned.

Guangcheng is currently under house arrest, and he was imprisoned for over four years back in 2006 for "disrupting traffic and damaging property" while campaigning against "forced abortions and the treatment of villagers in China."

When Bale and his CNN camera crew approached Guangcheng's village, a guard told them to go away, and when they didn't immediately comply, Bale was "shoved violently by the dozen guards in olive green military coats." Scary!

Betty White's New Book About Zoo Activism

Filed under: Betty WhiteZoo

betty-white-writes-a-book-f.jpg

Betty White is a huge animal lover and zoo enthusiast.

She has a new book coming out called Betty & Friends: My Life at the Zoo.

In it, she says she loves good zoos but that protesting and marching aren't enough to turn a bad zoo into one.

"I was really kind of appalled that a city like Los Angeles had such a poor zoo… I’ve never been a big demonstrator from the outside criticizing. I’d much rather get inside and help. So I started to work with the zoo and got hooked, and they haven’t been able to get rid of me since."

While many groups, including PETA, feel that zoos are cruel, offering only the basic needs for animals, Betty feels differently.

"Many people get very irate, say, ‘Animals should be in their natural habitat, they shouldn’t be in captivity.’ Well, in the meantime, we’ve taken much of that natural habitat away. It doesn’t exist anymore."

If you'd like to hear more of Betty's words of wisdom, you can check it out at any major book store.

Alicia Silverstone Says Animal Testing Is Out Of Date

Alicia Silverstone animal testing

Listen to Cher, she always knows what's in.

The Clueless actress and super star activist Alicia Silverstone is battling for animal rights once again! Her current target — the cosmetic industry.

Alicia has written a letter to the European Commission asking them to "Uphold the European Union's 2013 ban on cosmetics tested on animals."

According to Alicia:

"This ban was put in place to advance and modernize cosmetic testing and keeping it in place is crucial. We need modern cosmetics and chemical test methods that can assess how products will affect the human body. Testing these products on animals is inherently cruel–and it's not a good predictor of how it will affect humans."

She says pushing the deadline further would only delay plans to develop nonanimal tests that can better predict how cosmetics affect humans.

We agree, AND are totes proud of Alicia for all her hard work and passion!
