PETA Slams "Turncoat" Lady Gaga Over Furry Pics

by at . Comments

Lady Gaga is under fire for rocking a fur coat on her European tour, with PETA penning a blistering open letter to Mother Monster and accusing her of betrayal.

Dan Mathews, PETA's senior vice president, wrote:

"Many of your gay fans, myself among them, have long admired what you told Ellen [DeGeneres]: 'I hate fur and I don't wear fur.'"

However, he adds, it appears "that you have amnesia ... What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it's fake, or are you a turncoat?"

The photo above, of Gaga exiting a hotel in Sofia, Bulgaria - with a puppy named Fozzi in her arms, adding insult to injury - sparked PETA's outcry.

Mathews tried to appeal to Gaga's morality, likening PETA's anti-animal cruelty efforts to her support of the gay community and equal rights.

"PETA has long participated in [gay] Pride events around the country, and just last week we helped lead protests against Chick-fil-A," he added.

"But by wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you're making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian."

"As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose. We await your reply."

Accused of being a hypocrite? Compared to Kim Kardashian? Hard to know which of those slams is more brutal. No comment yet from LG.

PETA needs to get a life. A woman is free to change her mind from time to time. Someone, somewhere is going to wear fur whether they said n

@Tanya, supply and demand if the people wouldn't buy fur the suppliers would not be skinning animals...... How dumb u truly r. They are not already dead do u think these animals are accidental road kill? Do a google search and educate yourself on how the fur is obtained............
I stand by my earlier statement, GaGA/CACA if anything should wear fur on her ugly face, if anywhere. perhaps her little dog will do.

From the way she is being attacked by these PETA people and others in the media, you would think she went out and slayed the animals herself. Those poor animals are already dead, you should go after the makers of the fur and not some of the wearers just because they are famous. If it is okay for famous people to eat meat and not get harassed by PETA and all trhe VEGANS on the planet, then it should be the same for fur. I don't like fur myself and will not wear it, but I am not going to start bad mouthing people who I see or know who do. That is just plain stupid and rude. If you don't like it, don't wear it, let other makes that choice from themselves.

I do have to admit that I'm quite disappointed in her. I too, am an animal over and I'm completely against wearing fur, unless it's faux fur... so I'm pretty saddened by this.

Maybe it's a high quality fake fur. Whatever it is, it's way too warm to wear any kind of heavy coat right now.

the fur is beautiful on it's original owner,for u that think it's okay to wear it. do you know how it became a coat? do u even care probably not. LG is a very smart woman she knows the pain and terror it took to make her look what? prettier? She has an ugly face no matter what she wears. How would she like it if that cute little dog she carries around was skinned alive and made into an article of clothing> Just because you like her and enjoy her talent does not mean all she does is okay. It's not. I will never give her one cent for any of her music, clothing, perfumes. nothing.

Peta is so fucking retarded, at least kim never wore a fuckin outfit made from meat! Fuck lady gaga.

Didn't she once wear an outfit made of meat? I hope she isn't becoming a "do as I say, not as I do" celebrity. Or maybe her outfit was meant to be ironic. Doubtful, but possible.

Killing something just so you can look good is evil. I don't know what is wrong with some people.
