People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has officially responded to Tiffany Haddish’s recent vow to continue wearing fur until “police stop killing black people.”
Haddish took to Instagram to thank a fan who unexpectedly gave her the raccoon fur recently, after Tiffany told her she liked it.
Haddish later took to Instagram and said, in part:
“When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest. So sorry PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), don’t be mad at me, be mad at the police.”
No word on exactly sparked Haddish’s comment, but PETA is now urging her to rethink her protest.
“We love you, Tiffany, … we advocate for and believe in kindness towards all, including animal.”… “We hope that you choose to protest in a different way that doesn’t harm any humans or any animals, but is kind to all.”
And we that the outspoken Russell Simmons has also tried to urge Haddish from using fur to protest.
“White supremacy is a disease that takes on many forms and has many symptoms,” Simmons said. “The abuse of other beings will not address that … or heal ourselves. I love you Tiffany but I wish you would reconsider this route of protest.”
PETA’s response comes just days after Haddish made headlines for bombing a set on New Year’s Eve.
