Kim Kardashian Berated by Animal Activists During New York Book Signing

Kim Kardashian has been targeted by animal activists at a New York book signing.

The reality TV star was at Barnes & Noble on Fifth Avenue this week signing copies of her book Selfish, which is composed entirely of her own 'selfie' photographs.

While she may have been ready for over-eager fans, she probably didn't expect animal rights activists to highjack the event.

The wife of rapper Kanye West has worn real fur on a number of occasions at high-profile events, as has her daughter, 21 month-old North West.

While she was signing books, a number of protesters gathered in front of her. One man said: 'Shame on you for supporting the fur industry.'

The star seemed unruffled and continued to sign books as another activist confronted her directly, saying: 'It's wrong to wear fur, you need to stop wearing fur. It's horrible. You're a terrible person.'

Another man cheekily asked for a copy of the book to be signed, saying: 'Can you make it out to all the animals that were killed for you to wear a fur coat.'

Some fans queued overnight to meet the star, and while many dreamed of snapping a photo with Kardashian, selfies with her at the event were prohibited.
