The INSIDER Summary:

  • Actress Pamela Anderson posted an open letter to Kim Kardashian West, urging her to stop wearing fur, on her website.
  • In the September 14 letter, she asked Kardashian to “be a hero for animals as well as a great example to all [her] beautiful followers by swearing off fur,” and urged her to “do the right thing.”
  • Kardashian has worn fur on multiple occasions.
  • The reality TV star doesn’t appear to have publicly addressed Anderson’s letter.


Kim Kardashian West’s style has changed drastically in the decade since “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” first aired.

Although her style is more understated than it used to be, she still likes to wear fur on occasion — but Pamela Anderson has written an open letter to the reality TV star asking her to stop.

Anderson, who is an honorary director of the animal rights organization PETA, posted the open letter to her website on September 14, after spending time with Kardashian at New York Fashion Week.

“Dear Kim, It was lovely seeing you at New York Fashion Week,” the actress began her letter, which we first saw on PETA. “I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know you over the years, and I can tell you’re a good person with a big, beautiful heart.”

She continued: “I’m writing to ask you to extend your compassion to real fashion victims — the animals who are violently killed in the fur trade — by swearing off fur this winter,” adding that she would “be horrified to learn that every single fur farm that PETA has exposed has been beyond cruel.”

Here’s an excerpt from the letter, where she goes into more depth about the violence animals face in the fur industry:

“Investigators have witnessed and documented that foxes are electrocuted, dogs are bludgeoned to death, and raccoon dogs are skinned alive. Just last month, video footage from a fur farm in Poland revealed that foxes are being kept inside filthy, cramped, dark cages and that some had missing eyes and rotting jaws. The footage was released on the heels of another investigationshowing that foxes are being selectively bred to grow to an enormous — and dangerously unhealthy — size so that their pelts will be larger and fetch more money.”

Anderson also cited other public figures who have famously stopped wearing fur, including Gisele Bündchen and Melania Trump.

The actress ended her letter by asking Kardashian to “be a hero for animals as well as a great example to all [her] beautiful followers by swearing off fur,” and urged her to “do the right thing,” adding that she would be “praised all over the world.”

Kardashian has been photographed wearing fur on several occasions.

Even though she wears a lot of fur, Kardashian appears to have supported her sister Khloe’s PETA campaign in 2008.

Although it appears that Kardashian hasn’t publicly addressed Anderson’s letter, she received some negative comments on this post, which she recently shared on Instagram.

One user asked: “Your next fur coat?” Another person was more blunt: “Are you going to wear this cars fur?? Enough said.” A third person simply wrote in all caps: “HAVE YOU STOPPED WEARING FUR YET?!?”

Despite Anderson’s letter, Kardashian appears to be a fan of the actress. She recently paid homage to Anderson’s look from the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards in a photo shoot for “The CR Fashion Book.”

While it’s unclear where the reality star currently stands on fur, it’s worth noting that she recently included faux fur in her clothing line with Kanye West, The Kids Supply. The collection includes a pair of faux fur slides that some people believe look very similar to an earlier pair designed by Rihanna.

Here’s Pamela Anderson’s full letter:

“Dear Kim, 

It was lovely seeing you at New York Fashion Week. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know you over the years, and I can tell you’re a good person with a big, beautiful heart. I’m writing to ask you to extend your compassion to real fashion victims — the animals who are violently killed in the fur trade — by swearing off fur this winter. I think you’d be horrified to learn that every single fur farm that PETA has exposed has been beyond cruel: Investigators have witnessed and documented that foxes are electrocuted, dogs are bludgeoned to death, and raccoon dogs are skinned alive. Just last month, video footage from a fur farm in Poland revealed that foxes are being kept inside filthy, cramped, dark cages and that some had missing eyes and rotting jaws. The footage was released on the heels of another investigation showing that foxes are being selectively bred to grow to an enormous — and dangerously unhealthy — size so that their pelts will be larger and fetch more money. 

Times are changing, though: Gisele Bündchen made a bold statement against fur on the cover of Vogue Paris earlier this summer, and Austria, Croatia, the Netherlands, Slovenia, the U.K., and other nations have taken a stand against cruelty by abolishing all fur farms. First lady and former fur-wearer Melania Trump recently swore off fur, following in the footsteps of so many fashion icons and first ladies. You know I love you, and you can be a hero for animals as well as a great example to all your beautiful followers by swearing off fur. Please do the right thing. You’d be praised all over the world, including by my close friends at PETA. Kind regards, 

Pamela Anderson”
