Conclusion

Kim Kardashian has millions of fans around the world; she has been a regular donor of charities and also a pretty famous person. PETA has criticised her multiple times for using fur coats which I think too should change as she has a platform to change so many things in this world. I’m personally not a huge fan but considering how much she is doing for everyone’s welfare a few more additions will not hurt, Will they?
