See how the star handles the surprise protesters at her event
Kim Kardashian didn’t let a protest stop her Selfish book signing. The star greeted hundreds of loyal fans at a Barnes and Noble store in N.Y.C. Tuesday, but it was not without controversy.

A group of approximately 10 anti-fur activists used the signing as an opportunity to harass Kim for wearing mink coats and other animal-skin-derived clothing, holding up posters that read “Your fur had a face.” They also chanted “murderer” as they were quickly ushered out of the building by security. One protester went as far as asking Kim to make his book out to “all the animals who have been tortured and killed for you to wear a fur coat.”
For her part, the star remained totally unruffled — and focused on the fans who were there to support her. Watch the clip below:
The 34-year-old star does have a ton of fur pieces in her closet, from a pair of rabbit-fur-lined Céline sandals to that infamous furkini, which husband Kanye West styled for one of the couple’s impromptu vacation photo shoots in Montana.

Kim’s busy week in N.Y.C. started with the Met Gala Monday. Her super-sexy ostrich-feather-embellished Roberto Cavalli gown — inspired by Cher’s first Met Gala look — nabbed her a spot on Vogue‘s best-dressed list.
