PETA slams Kim Kardashian for her $50,000 crocodile-skin Birkin bag
Kim Kardashian cemented her title as PETA's most hated celebrity on Friday by adding a pricey crocodile-skin Birkin bag to her cruel closet, which includes countless fur coats and python knee-high boots.
The cost of the rare designer purse can reach $50,000, but the animal rights group says the price paid by the creature that died for it is far greater.
"For every alligator or crocodile-skin accessory, an animal was likely beaten but still conscious and able to feel excruciating pain as his or her skin was peeled off," PETA spokesperson Wendy Wegner told RadarOnline.
