Lady Gaga slammed by PETA

2012-09-10 20:05
Los Angeles - Lady Gaga has been slammed by PETA, who claim she is heartless.

The animal rights group - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals - have criticised the Poker Face hitmaker after she was spotted wearing a white fox fur scarf in Cologne, Germany last Wednesday.

Wendy Wegner, a spokesperson for the organisation said: "The picture speaks for itself. PETA is considering passing the hat so that someone can buy her a heart."

The scarf, which still had the animal's head attached, appeared to be from an Arctic White Fox, which is often electrocuted for its fur.

At one time Gaga took a stand against wearing animal skin, stepping out in a jacket made from Kermit the Frog puppets, an ironic statement against the fur trade.

However, she appears to have changed her stance, and recently said she would no longer comment on whether she wore fur or not.

'Hypercritical'

She wrote on her website: "I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile 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.

"You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance."

Gaga, 26, has also attacked Peta's campaign against fur for it use of shock tactics.

She wrote: "I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life.

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

    Finally Gaga has irritated the right people. Most of the time she just plain irritates me.

    PETA are anything but ethical. They are just a bunch of money-loving hypocrites.

    People have been wearing fur for thousands of years, nothing wrong with it at all. PETA must be the most childish pathetic group of low life scum on the planet. Not everyone wants to be a vegan hippie.

      Idiotic comment!!! Thousands of years ago fur was worn to survive, you telling me those wearing fur in NY, London, Paris is wearing it for the same reason? Do you think (obviously you don't) that when an animal is skinned alive that makes it right and then the carcass is just thrown away not even used for substance! You don't need to be a vegan hippy to know some practices are just plain wrong! It's the 21st century, get with it!

      What makes you think the animals are skinned alive? Are the steaks cut off the cow while it is alive ? Are the cattle used in the leather industry skinned alive ? Just because you watched some PETA propaganda doesn't make the entire industry that way. Having actually pelted chinchillas before, I can tell you first hand that they have to be dead to be pelted, if you try when they alive the fur falls out as a defense mechanism. You also can';t kill them violently or else you might damage the pelt. So human death with gas is the order of the day. You may be offended by people wearing fur , and you have every right to stick to your opinions , buts that is all they are , your opinions. If you are not a strict vegan then you are responsible for the unnatural deaths of hundreds of animals a year, so please get over yourself.

    Of course she is wearing fur - she is a Satanist, who is coming to South Africa to capture our minds and make us all bow down to the little red dude. I saw it in an email, so it must be true...
