Kim Kardashian has been blasted by PETA for wearing snakeskin boots. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was seen walking through the streets of Paris on Tuesday (19.06.12) in a pair of thigh-high Christian Louboutin python boots. The fashion item sells for $5,495 and is banned in her home state of California. A spokesperson for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals compared her to evil Disney character Cruella De Vil. Wendy Wegner told RadarOnline: "They'd go well with a Dalmatian-fur coat, which is also illegal to sell in California and immoral to sell anywhere else." It's not the first time the reality TV star had a run in with PETA. Kim was recently slammed in a giant billboard for wearing fox fur, which resulted in Kim being flour-bombed by a supporter during a red carpet event last March. According to the California Penal Code Section 653o, it is unlawful to import python into California for commercial purposes, to possess with intent to sell, or sell within the state. However, it is not illegal to purchase python in another state and carry it over.
