Sharon Osbourne Blasts Kim Kardashian & Baby North
Sharon Osbourne has accused of using her daughter North West as a fashion accessory by draping the toddler in real fur.
The outspoken TV personality, a staunch advocate for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), has criticised the reality star for dressing the little girl, who turns two in June, in what appeared to be an animal skin coat earlier this year.
Osbourne tells Britain's Closer magazine: "I know PETA has asked the Kardashians to stop. (North) isn't an accessory, she shouldn't be wearing ugly couture clothes. (Fur) makes me physically sick, and wearing it is a very dated way of showing everyone how rich you are. Our grandparents did it, but now we've been educated, it's cruel to keep the trade going."
PETA previously took aim at Kardashian when North, whose father is rapper Kanye West, was first pictured in the fluffy outfit, with Senior Vice President Lisa Lange saying: "Kids are naturally drawn to animals and sympathetic to their plight and there's no reason to think that North is any different. If the fur coat that she's been dressed in is real, animals have suffered for vanity, something that we're sure neither North nor any little girl her age would support."
