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.

Sure, fur is beautiful on animals. On people it looks absurd.

Animals are delicious and fur is beautiful. Lighten up, people.
