PETA Calls Lady Gaga a “Turncoat” for Allegedly Wearing Fur

In this day and age it is hard to imagine that there is anyone left that doesn't understand the cruelty involved behind the fur industry. China holds the title in cruelty with their many fur farms where foxes, dogs, cats,and other small animals are kept in tiny wirebottom cages until it is time to kill them for their fur. The animals are then clubbed on the head and skinned alive after which they are throw in a pile of other dying or dead animals before them.

So when celebrities callously don their expensive fur coats, hats and other accessories what are they thinking? What does that say about them and their ethics and position as a role model to those who look up to them. Actors, singers and sports figures are the most common usually to wear and flaunt fur apparel.

Recently Lady Gaga who loves to shock the public in order to get attention wore a full skin of a real white wolf including the head draped around her. To Native Americans the (white) wolf is a sacred animal, one that they feel a kinship with also. Her stunt also offended many other animal lovers and animal activist organizations who work daily to try and stop such cruelty as fur farming.

One organization in particuler, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals accused Lady Gaga of being a “Judas” to animalkind. In an open letter on Monday, they slammed the “Born This Way” singer for flip-flopping on an anti-fur statement she made on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2009. Although at that time Gaga professed to “hate fur” during her appearance, recent photographs reveal a possible change in stance. This led vice president Dan Matthews to brand the chanteuse an “amnesiac” and a “turncoat.” He addressed her "hypocrisy" in a scathing letter that was made public asking her to please reply. He asked her to explain her why she now chose to wear fur and especially in such a disrespectul manner after stating that she hated fur.

Lady Gaga has not responded to him but recently when asked in Bulgaria if her coat was made of real fur she tweeted about it in a rather sarcastic manner, 'For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don't forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You! LOVE, gaga.'

Until these celebrities begin to understand the consequences of their actions and take a responsible and humane stance against the wearing of fur, it would be advisable to boycott their performances and products. Whether they want to believe it or not they are promoting and endorsing the pain and misery of thousands of animals a year. It's time for them to wake up also.

    I cried watching Tim Gunn's video... I want to thank him for getting the TRUTH out there to fashion moguls, future designers, the "Stars" and general public. I have lived my life fur-free and will continue to do so. Lady Gaga and I use the term Lady loosely (real women don't wear fur) should be ashamed of herself!!! She has proclaimed she wants to set a positive example and pulls a stunt like this! Disgusting heinous behavior by someone that already pushes the limits. This time she has gone WAY TO FAR and should pay the price - Ban her CD's, concerts and anything she endorses. Let's send her the message LOUD & CLEAR... Signed A Wolf and Animal Lover

  5. Its disgusting. Told her so. She won't care until it hits her pocket book! #BoyCott all her perfume, cds music, shows. BOYCOTT HER!

    As an intelligent woman and artist, she needs to own up to her mistake. "Human beings are the only creatures on earth that claim a god and the only living thing that behaves like it hasn't got one." I want to believe that Lady Gaga has more respect for life and for herself.

    Lady HaHa is a self-serving attention whore. We stop paying attention, she goes away. Stop going to her shows, stop downloading her songs and videos and stop buying her merch. It's that simple.

    "Shock factor".... NO, this is plan cruelty, murder & disrespect!!!! I'm sick to my stomach over all this. Anyone that has a connection to the fur industry & this insane brutality should be imprisoned! And this includes the people who choose to wear furs! Unfortunately, that won't happen! As others have said, it has to hit their pockets! Total boycott of everything these people are connected with! Including NOT giving them publicity for doing it!!!! We have to investigate any products made from animals. Even the ones who say it's fake, because a lot of those are made using dogs & cats!!! Call, write, boycott the designers, manufacturers, stores that sell the products! Until people stop buying animal products, they will continue to make them. And the suffering will go on.....

    This is beyond disgusting. The children have no respect for life, torturing animals, the "faux fur" you buy from China, and other mftg are most likely a cst or dog that was skinned alive - BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT!!!
    The wolf is a sacred animal. How can you pose for this? This is criminally irresponsible. Have you no shame? Children look to public figures as an example. I will write all of my friends and get the word out that you are a selfish, disgusting person. Wake up and admit your ignorance or it is my hope that you will be banned, and hurt the only way important to you your bank account. SHAME ON YOU!! Our children learn by example - yours is shameful.

    How do you know it's real? Also, fuck PETA, and this is coming from someone who works at an animal shelter and my life is devoted to saving animals.




    Here's the thing. I am totally anti-fur, but it says she has no regret but never proves it real fur. ALSO, as stated again, fuck peta, they aren't for animals. They literally are crazy and do more harm than good.

  23. Anonymous says:

    @ Anonymous person above that's mostly just bashing PETA. First of all this isn't a PETA discussion board. Secondly, regardless of whether the fur is real or fake, its the fact that she is setting a piss poor example for tons of people, kids included, that look up to her. So please get off your damn PETA soap box and go bash them elsewhere.

    First off, i live in norfolk va where petas main headquarters is and here they have their own killing field. Secondly it isn't about PETA, its about the fur trade and the cruel and inhumane treatment and exploitation of animals for profit. GAGA is nuts and i will not listen to her music anyway because it does not empower anyone nor is it heart felt, its all about big money. The fur she is wearing IS real but perhaps the targets here should be the governers and law makers of the states who are promoting killing these awesome animals because without these mass kills of wolves there would be less animals killed for their furs.

    For someone who claims to be born this way, in my point of view, took the wrong way. I was a fan of Lady GaGa but because of what she has done, will never again purchase, listen or admire her no longer.
    I am a wolf handler and rescuer and was completely shocked to see this picture.
    Shame oh you GaGa for doing this! You lost a fan and come to think of it, this is not the first time GaGa was wearing a dead animal. At the end of Bad Romance, she was walking wrapped in a dead polar bear.
    Shame on you!!!!!

    Take her to where they get killed to make what she is wearing, but think about it, she has brought it to the attention of people, maybe that was the reason she did it, but then maybe not. Though there is not reason to wear it.

    I once knew a singer named lady gaga , who was humane and believed as we *fighters of faith* and *humanity* believe that Our family is something to cherish and protect .. what this person is today the Industry robbed her of her innosense, they robbed her of her passion towards life and piece over all things..it is no more within her, her life is not hers anymore, she is ruled by the Industry!! life will go on .. the strong survive, the weak perish.. I suppose now, i must forgive , I must for myself be positive... Positive thoughts are powerful, negative thoughts are weak :)

    what we think about, we bring about.. asking for revenge, is the same evil that provoked her to let the *industry* take over her soul.. I feel very sad for her, and the many highly educated (role models of today) that leave their souls behind,for money,status,record deals etc

    HORRIBLE! I vow to fight fur as much as I can. People like her should be forced to sit and watch what happens to these animals. Watch it and LISTEN to their cries. Wonder if they'd feel so high and mighty then? Fuck Lady Gaga.
