10 Celebrities Who’ve Been Slammed By PETA
4. PETA vs. Rihanna
Bad girl RiRi doesn’t give zero you-know-what’s, especially when it comes to PETA. She was spotted rockin’ snakeskin boots in London. PETA didn’t think she looked so sexy, saying “Rihanna may not have a clue that snakes killed for boots are often nailed to a tree and skinned alive. Of course, they can’t go on Oprah to cry about it.” Ouch.
5. PETA vs. Beyoncé
When you’re royalty like Beyoncé, you must have more than a few mink coats in your closet. PETA once confronted Bey at a private dinner in 2006 which was captured on video. Just recently, she performed at the Super Bowl wearing iguana and cow skin to much chagrin of the animal-friendly organization.
6. PETA vs. 50 Cent
50 Cent is known for picking fights with everyone, but he wasn’t expecting to feud with PETA. He jokingly posted a picture of himself pretending to stab his dog named Oprah in the leg. PETA saw the picture and informed him on the daily mistreatment of dogs around the world. 50’s response: “Stay off my motherf*cking twitter page I don’t give a f*ck!” Um, we’re still trying to figure out why his dog name is Oprah?
7. PETA vs. Chris Brown
When Chris Brown announced that he would be selling his own breed of puppies on Twitter, PETA raised eyebrows on his true intention for the dogs. PETA said, “This is a money-making scheme, and Brown will count the suckers who fall for it as he counts the money on the way to the bank. Shelters will count the bodies in the barrel.”
8. PETA vs. Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson has been a spokesperson the fur fashion line of Blackglama since 2010, which PETA wasn’t feeling and had some nasty words to say about it. “The stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career). Ms. Jackson, you’re just plain nasty.” wrote PETA’s Jeff Mackey.
9. PETA vs. Kelis
Kelis definitely marches to the beat of her own drum. She lashed out in an open letter against the PETA group for condemning her use of fur in her eccentric outfits. Surprisingly, PETA calmly responded by telling her to educate herself about the abuse and torture animals suffer for her to look good in their skin/fur.
10. PETA vs. Jennifer Lopez
J. Lo ticked off PETA when she wore fox fur for her 2011 Vanity Fair photo shoot. PETA called her “arrogant and ignorant” for her outfit choice, adding, “Maybe the real story behind their breakup is that Marc Anthony left because he couldn’t stand looking into her morgue of a closet.” Low blow.
