PETA to Brooke Shields: You're a Fur Pimp!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

PETA is at it again.

No, the attention-seeking organization is actually not posing a D-list celebrity naked this time, wasting money on a campaign that could otherwise be spent on the lives of animals.

Instead, the company is taking at at Brooke Shields, after the actress visited Kopenhagen Fur's workshop in March and said:

"I will advocate that both my generation and the younger generation can wear fur" and "I will wear the fur garment when I follow my children to school, when I drink coffee and when I sleep."

We must say: those are especially odd comments to make. Of all the causes to advocate, who chooses fur?!?

PETA held nothing back in its response, calling out Shields and her floundering career:

"When I was a little girl, I dreamed about growing up to be a rock star. Or maybe a veterinarian. Or a roller derby queen. I didn't dream about anally electrocuting animals on fur farms, but apparently Brooke Shields did.

"We understand that when some actors' careers begin to fade, they'll do just about anything to stay in the limelight, including appearing in eyelash-growing commercials and starring in short-lived TV shows. But Brooke, did you really want the world to remember you as a 'fur pimp' who stares agog at rows of animal skins?"

We have to (painfully) admit: we agree with PETA in this one instance. How about you?


Yeah Peta! No need to wear fur - stinky in the rain and totally ugly dog look. And wow brooke - who would have thought.


Peta is crazy, they are extremists... i don't know what's up with shields, but i suspect its a reaction to harassment she probably received from peta. i have been harassed by crazy animal rights freaks for having a tiny bit of fur on a hood of my coat, and they made me so angry that it just made me want to wear fur from head to toe to spite them. their tactics backfire, they just piss people off and make them want to wear fur. i understand why people who live in cold nordic countries would wear fur, but really...i don't think it's necessary in most of north america...but i am not going to get pissed off if there is a tiny bit of it on a coat i happen to like...and i certainly won't be bullied into not wearing said coat by some lunatics on the street.


I agree too


The main problem with PETA is their leadership. If they wanted to get away from their bad reputation why would they issue a statement like that? It's not very professional and it seems like a 14 year old girl issued that statement. I love animals but I will never give money to PETA.
