Lady Gaga adds fuel to fire with Twitter response to PETA

Even Little Monsters bite back at star

Lady Gaga didn't exactly help her situation with PETA (or her fans) when she tweeted a response to the uproar generated by recent photos featuring her in what appears to be fox and rabbit fur coats, and portions of a wolf draped around her for a promotional shoot.

Fur Lady Gaga

If you went to Lady Gaga's Twitter page looking for an "explanation" following PETA's threats to flour-bomb the pop star just like Kim Kardashian before her, you'd be sorely disappointed.

Gaga coyly tweeted to her 28 million followers: "For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real … please don't forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You! LOVE, gaga."

The tweet included a link to fan site, and many of her Little Monsters were less-than-impressed with Gaga's response.

"i would try find the funny side if i didnt think the fur industry was such a disgusting tade…," wrote one fan.

Another posted: "I love and respect you Lg, but which is it. You said you hated real fur but now you're wearing it??"

Even Scottish actor Alan Cumming weighed in: "I'm so disappointed to learn @ladygaga wears fur! Guess she doesn't love all little monsters."

Lady Gaga Now, an account boasting Gaga-oriented news (and some 147,000 followers) insisted that Gaga stayed true to what she famously said on Ellen -- that she hates fur and doesn't wear it.

"The coat @ladygaga was wearing in Sofia today was made with high pile fur for the Hermès Fall 2012 Collection," read the Lady Gaga tweet, referring to faux high-pile fur. "You can stop now @peta."

For the time being, Gaga's sarcasm (?) isn't helping her case.

It's one thing to ruffle PETA's fur, but even her fans seem perplexed.

How quickly we forget, though: This is the same woman who wore a dress made out of meat to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.
