Lady Gaga SLAMS PETA, Rejects Pressure From "Violent, Abusive, Childish" Group

by at . Comments

Earlier this week, PETA slammed Lady Gaga, labeling the star a "turncoat" and demanding to know if some of the furs she's recently worn are real.

Rather than succumb to pressure, Mother Monster hit back!

In response to PETA and fan backlash, Gaga fired off a statement on her website basically saying she has a right to do (and wear) what she wants.

Lady Gaga, Fur Coat

Some have accused the manicure and handjob lover of being a hypocrite, not to mention petulant, in her response to PETA, but she's standing her ground.

In a well-formulated, refreshingly honest response, Gaga defends herself and calls out the organization for bullying (and flour-bombing Kim Kardashian).

"I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life," the 26-year-old writes.

"We've been having long and over-arching conversations about society, equality, and politics for the past five years, and we should continue."

However, "I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. 'Animal Rights.'"

"I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, 'kermit' and not to mention meat, that I have already worn."

"This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan."

"I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially i have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won't bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat."

"You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance. I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, its a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals. I respect your views, please respect mine."

"And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous."

Wow, a celebrity who says what they think and doesn't fear the public relations backlash? Whatever you think of her views, it's hard not to respect that.

On the flip side, if she blatantly said, as PETA claims, that she hates fur and doesn't wear fur, how can she not expect to hear from them about this?

Really people? Gaga is allowed, JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE to change her mind on something. Lord knows we all do it, say to people "I'll NEVER do this or that!" then turn around later and catch ourselves doing it. the only reason anyone is getting pissy with Gaga is cause she is a public figure, but public figure or not she is just another human, just like the rest of us. You are all mad at her for being a hypocrite, how often in you're life have you been hypocritical? Not to get religious but 'let he who is without sin cast the first stone' comes to mind. when one of you comes along and wants to judge Gaga AND you have never been hypocritical in any manner, said something and done the opposite? then by all means say something!

TO all your journalist! I expect that you do your homework better before you publish: Your statement that Hermes doesn't make faux coat is simply not true. If you look at 2012 fall collection you find that the particular model is actual a "high-pile fur", which is the same a faux fur and therefore is not real. Honestly I find it careless that journalist are copying and pasting from other resources without reviewing their material before publishing. And you readers are naive to believe that all the crap that is written is actual true. Don't trust journalism and politicians before interviewing all the facts. I know there is work involved but a "wrong word" can kill!!

I really just lost all respect for Gaga. One thing is to wear fur, but to state that you hate fur and would never wear it only to change your mind because you think it looks good, is just sad and hypocritical. "And Kim Kardashian is fabulous"... Wow. Really, Gaga?... You'll sink that low?

Why would I respect this? This is disgusting. It's one thing to wear fur. It's another to wear fur after publicly denouncing it. And then it's a whole other thing to wear the fur after denouncing and then defending it with a petulant, bratty "statement" that makes her look like a complete fool. Mother Monster is nothing but a fake.
