Faux Pas: PETA wants Rihanna to change her fur-loving ways


Jeff Kravitz/Getty Images via ABCRihanna is famous not only for her chart-topping music, but also for her trendsetting looks, which often feature fur.  Now, PETA is working to change that.

A slew of the artist’s fans are none too happy about RiRi’s decision to wear an extravagant brown fur coat at Dior’s recent Cruise 2018 fashion show.

Their complaints prompted animal-rights organization PETA to send the singer a special gift, along with a note. 

PETA’s letter to Rih begins, “We saw the numerous comments from fans who were disappointed to see you wearing fur at the Dior event last week. Like us, they wish you would please retire your furs and instead choose a look that kills but doesn’t actually kill anyone.” 

PETA’s note was accompanied by a beautiful faux fur coat.

“Please accept this faux fur as a gift from PETA. In addition, we’d like to request that you please consider donating your furs to us,” the note continues.

“Your donated furs would go to good use: In the past, we’ve sent furs to Syrian refugees and to homeless shelters, which has an impact on ‘as many lives as possible in a positive way,’ as you said so eloquently in your Harvard Humanitarian Award acceptance speech.” 

PETA –whose motto, in part, states that “animals are not ours to wear” — is known for targeting fur-wearing celebrities in public. Last month, a group of PETA anti-fur protesters crashed Kelly Rowland‘s Whoa, Baby! book signing in New Jersey.
