Lil Kim Speaks On Interaction With The PETA Protester: “You Do Not Get Aggressive.”
PETA members are known for their radical dedication to animal rights. But in their respect of animals, they often end up disrespecting and even violating human beings. While they work closely with celebrities, getting them to become advocates against wearing fur, they also go against public figures who choose to do so.
Most recently, Lil Kim was confronted by a protester, in an interaction that might have turned violent had security not been there.
In case you missed it, you can see how it went down in the video below.

In a recent interview with EXTRA, Kim spoke about what was going through her mind when that woman tried to run up on her.
I do not mind protesting. I think you should definitely stand up for your right. I love, love animals… However, you do not take things into your own hands. You do not get aggressive. You do not jump into anyone’s space.”
The rapper added, “Peaceful protests mean more than anything… Go ahead, PETA, keep doing what you do. I am supporting you from a distance if you’re not in my upper space trying to violate. At the end of the day, I understand what you are fighting for.”
Lil Kim was going to a press conference to promote her latest album 9 when she was confronted by the protester who repeatedly lunged toward the rapper screaming about not wearing fur or leather.
