Kim Kardashian and PETA often don't see eye to eye.
They've usually got some beef over some fur Kim wore or some selfie with an imprisoned zoo animal.
We're assuming ever since Kim was flour-bombed by a PETA activist, there's now no chance of a reconciliation.
But that doesn't mean PETA is wrong to criticize her for swimming with dolphins!
Sure, lots of people do it, but that doesn't mean you aren't invading the already small space in which a dolphin is stuck, living out their entire life there.
PETA's Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said:
"Kim is free to leave the pool, but for the dolphins, it’s a lifetime sentence. Touch tanks and 'swim-with' programs allow the public to pet, kiss, or even 'ride' dolphins. Such programs invade the animals' already diminished worlds and are intrusive, dangerous, and stressful for the animals as well as for human participants. Animals in 'petting pools' can become injured and anxious as a result of constant poking and prodding, and exposure to bacteria that they are not immune to can make them ill. The dolphins also often express their frustration through aggression."
Wow, that's so awful!
We guess we never really thought about it before but those dolphins must hate their lives.
Who wants to spend their time dragging around a bunch of humans?
