PETA responds to Kelis' Open Letter
People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals or PETA has caught wind of the ex Mrs. Nasir Jones' open letter to the organization after they put her on blast for wearing fur.
As previously reported Kelis responded to criticism from the organization telling them to “get off her back” and to “stop wasting her time trying to save chipmunks” after they sent her a letter about a fur outfit she was photographed in.
Now the world's most prominent animal rights group is responding to Kelis in an “open letter” of their own.
Unfortunately for everyone looking for a war of words, they'll have to look elsewhere.
PETA's letter is mild to say the least. The group simply offers Kelis a position as another one of their celebrity supporters, a position I'm SURE she'll turn down.
Check out PETA's open letter to Kelis below.
"I hope that this finds you well. I'm writing today because we've been inundated with phone calls and e-mails from folks alerting us to photos of you wearing a fur hat and coat while out in London over the weekend.
Please know that animals killed for their fur endure immense suffering. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, strangled, genitally electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their pelts. We hope that you'll take a moment to watch an undercover exposé of fur farms, hosted by Eva Mendes, at http://www.peta.org/FeatureEvaMendes.asp.
If you enjoy the look of fur, renowned designers, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, and Vivienne Westwood, couple fashion with compassion and use only faux fur in their lines. We hope you found this information helpful and will join countless celebrities, like Charlize Theron, Khloe Kardashian, Nia Long, Kid Sister, Pink, and Michelle Obama, in publicly swearing off fur.
Warm regards, PETA"
I was just waiting for them to shut her down though….oh well.
