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.

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.'"

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.
