Lady Gaga slammed by PETA for wearing fur
New York: Lady Gaga has drawn the ire of PETA for wearing real fur outfits at several occasions.
The ‘Judas’ hitmaker, who once considered an anti-fur ally for the animal rights organization when she spoke up against the cruelty of wearing fur on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” in 2009, is under scrutiny for her recent get ups.
“Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: ‘I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur,’” New York Post quoted Dan Mathews, PETA’s Senior VP, as writing to the singer.
“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,” he wrote.
Matthews called the 26-year-old popstar a “turncoat” for reneging on her anti-fur stance and “dumb” for wearing fur in record-breaking summer heat.
“By wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian,” he wrote.
Gaga tweeted late Monday with a cheeky reply: “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.”
