Kim Kardashian Slammed By PETA for Swimming With Dolphins

by The Insider 1:19 mins

Kim Kardashian is known to make a splash wherever she goes, but now she's facing a wave of criticism from the Animal Rights Organization PETA. Back in June, the 33-year-old reality star had many up in arms after she posted a video to Instagram that showcased her holding on to a dolphin's fin and being pulled around a pool while in Mexico. "Kim is free to leave the pool, but for the dolphins, it's a lifetime sentence," said PETA's Senior Vice President Lisa Lange in a statement to "The Insider With Yahoo." "The psychological and physiological needs of dolphins used in swim-with-dolphin events use illegal and cruel methods to acquire dolphins, such as making loud noises or using explosions in order to herd entire pods toward shore, or obtain them from violent drive hunts, such as in Taiji, Japan, as shown in the Oscar-winning documentary 'The Cove,'" the organization continued. But that's not all they had to say. Check out the video to hear more and tune in to "The Insider With Yahoo" on TV tonight for the best in entertainment news.
