Lady Gaga in a fur coat? Say it isn’t so! PETA is both shocked and outraged to find one person they’ve considered a friend to their cause wearing “dumb furs in a heat wave.”
Exhibit A in PETA‘s protest? Photos of Lady Gaga in a fur coat, such as the one she was caught in on Aug. 13 while in Bulgaria.
Wearing an animal and carrying one at the same time? Oh my, that Gaga girl will do anything to set tongues wagging.
Dan Matthews, senior vice president at PETA, has written an open letter to Lady Gaga, demanding Mother Monster account for her apparent change of heart.
Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: “I hate fur and I don’t wear fur.” I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia.
I’m also including this brief videohosted by Tim Gunn showing the violent cruelty that you promote when you wear fur. What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat?
Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation. PETA has long participated in Pride events around the country, and just last week, we helped lead protests against Chick-fil-A. But by wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.
Kim Kardashian-level loathing? That’s dire! Need we remind Lady Gaga of the flour-bomb incident from March? PETA isn’t messing around.
