PETA is taking on Lady Gaga after the pop star was spotted wearing what appears to be fur. In the past, Gaga has spoken out against rocking dead animals, telling Ellen DeGeneres, “I hate fur and I don’t wear fur.”
But recent pictures have PETA VP Dan Mathews questioning if Gaga has “amnesia.”
“Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen … 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 …
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.”
Gaga caught wind of the firestorm building around her controversial wardrobe choices, but most likely exacerbated things by tweeting:
“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.”
Gaga was spotted earlier this week rocking a fur coat while holding a puppy in Sofia, Bulgaria.
