Reality television Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian have come under fire from their millions of fans after posting images of themselves wearing what appears to be animal fur coats.
Posting a series of images to their respective Instagram accounts over the past 48 hours, the iconic sisters can be seen wearing white, black and tan coloured fur coats and posing for a number of photos shared across their respective Instagram accounts.
“Mix tape dropping in 2018,” Khloe captioned a mirror selfie image of herself, Kim, Kourtney and longtime friend Khadijah McCray all in matching furs.
The same image was later shared on Kourtney’s account and within minutes of being posted, began to draw ire from Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans.
“All I see is poor animals,” one Instagram user commented.
“Didn’t you do an ad campaign against wearing fur?” asked another. “What a world we live in.”
Another wrote, “All of the dead animals in this photo…”
A number of other high-profile Instagram users have reposted the images criticising the famous siblings on their outerwear choice.
The big problem with this, of course, is that it’s not yet clear at this point whether or not the coats are actually real fur.

But, as pointed out by many commenters, both Khloe and Kourtney sisters have a long history of supporting animal rights groups and speaking out about cruelty against animals.
In 2014, Khloe Kardashian headed out wearing a very real looking floor-length faux fur coat with the words “FVCK YO FUR” painted on the back in red paint.
“Fake fur all day people,” the 32-year-old said at the time.
Just two years earlier in 2012, though, Kim was flour-bombed by a PETA activist while walking a red carpet in New York. She was not wearing fur at the time.
And while there’s a very good chance that the women in the photo are wearing real animal fur, there’s also just as good a chance that they’re not, which is probably worth remembering.
