Michelle Cho, the PETA official whose sister Christina allegedly dumped flour all over Kim Kardashian, has come out in defense of her sibling's actions.

"I am not my sister's keeper," Michelle told E! in a statement, "but I love her and have seen her sacrifice a lot of herself as a terrific activist." She added that they work in different ways to stop the suffering of animals, but credited her involvement in the movement to her sister.

PETA has denied involvement in the incident, but said they will "defend the activist" should any legal action be taken against her.

"If Christina Cho is the person who sprinkled flour on Kim Kardashian," said Michelle, "we know Christina as a very kind, wonderful long time volunteer."

Kim's sister Khloe, who once posed for a PETA campaign, worked with Michelle on the 2008 ad. Khloe has since pulled her support from the organization.

Khloe Kardashian, who once posed for a PETA campaign, has decided to dump the animal rights organization after it was revealed that the woman who flour bombed Kim Kardashian often works with PETA.

The organization released a statement denying their involvement in the incident, but Christina Cho, the flour-wielding perpetrator, has frequently staged anti-fur protests for them.

"I've been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me," wrote Khloe on her blog. "As you all know, I don't condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that."

In 2008, the reality star was featured in PETA's "Fur? I'd Rather Go Naked" campaign.

Khloe concluded that while she is still anti-fur, she will no longer suport the animal rights organization.

"Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution," she wrote, "and I won't be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise."

Kim Kardashian's flour bomber has been identified as prominent PETA activist Christina Cho.

While the animal rights organization has denied being responsible for the dust up, TMZ found that Cho has a storied history with PETA, and often stages anti-fur protests in their name.

In 2010, she stole the spotlight from fashion designer Donna Karan at an event and publicly asked her to stop using fur.

That same year, Cho won an award from PETA for her work. Her sister Michelle is also a top member of the organization in Los Angeles.

Last week at a red carpet event, Cho ran up to Kardashian and dumped a bag of white flour on her. The reality star is reportedly planning to press charges.

Kim Kardashian Flour Bomb of the Day

Kim Kardashian was hit with a flour bomb on the red carpet on Thursday night at an event to promote her new perfume.

A woman walked up to Kim, shouted something that sounded like "lousy fur hag!" and doused her in a white powder that turned out to be ordinary cooking flour.

The flour-bomber was detained by hotel security, but was released after Kardashian decided not to press charges.

Kim stepped away from the event for 10 minutes, brushed herself off, and returned to the red carpet.

"That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me," Kim told E! "Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there."

The Superficial thinks the flour bombing may have been less "crazy, unexpected" and more "publicity stunt," considering the lack of charges.

The motivation for the flour attack seems to add up, though: Kardashian has been a target for anti-fur activists in the past, including a PETA billboard campaign.
