PETA Targets Rihanna

Published: Tuesday 16th May 2017 by David

PETA has a bone (or feather) to pick with Rihanna.

Horrified when they spotted her sporting a fur coat at last week’s Dior Cruise show, the aggressive animal rights activist group penned an opened letter to the ‘Take a Bow‘ belle with hopes it will force her to part ways with said coat.

It reads…

Dear Rihanna,

We saw the numerous comments from fans who were disappointed to see you wearing fur at the Dior event last week. Like us, they wish you would please retire your furs and instead choose a look that kills but doesn’t actually kill anyone.

Please accept this faux fur as a gift from PETA. In addition, we’d like to request that you please consider donating your furs to us. Every fur item causes a tremendous amount of pain and suffering to the foxes, minks, and coyotes who are beaten, electrocuted, gassed, and often skinned alive by the fur industry—and fur production takes a toll on humans as well. In the U.S. alone, fur farms are directly responsible for nearly 1,000 tons of phosphorous entering our rivers and streams each year, not to mention the toxic soup of chemicals used to keep animal skins from decomposing, which are hazardous to workers and the surrounding environment.

Your donated furs would go to good use: In the past, we’ve sent furs to Syrian refugees and to homeless shelters, which has an impact on “as many lives as possible in a positive way,” as you said so eloquently in your Harvard Humanitarian Award acceptance speech.

Warm regards,

Andrew Bernstein

    This article is great and all but am I the only one who can’t stop staring at Robyn’s bottom in that first picture? 😍

    PETA just tryna make money. I wish they’d just STFU or get ran over by a bus.

      Little do they realize Ri is not the one to come after. Her clapbacks and shade lmao.

      Jaime You´re disgusting you know that, right? Rihanna is more important to you than justice and compassion? Grow up. Brainwashing is real. Light entertainment has the masses really fooled damn it.

        Yes, I know. And?

    This won’t stop her from wearing it if her onw fans who asked didn’t stop her. She’s going to do wherever she wants, that goes for ppl in general.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 16, 2017

      Hmm people with brains can change their opinions when confronted with facts. So she´ll do whatever she wants but maybe she changes her opinion. She should. It´s not that difficult to evolve and change for the better. I suppose peopel with poor education find that odd 🙁

      • Tori May 16, 2017
        +2

        Why should ppl change what THEY wear and what THEY like because you bring up alternative facts to support YOUR optional opinion of what YOU don’t like? Ppl with brains poor educated or not will understand grown ass ppl are going to do grown ass ppl s***, whether YOU like or not!

      • JOHNVIDAL May 17, 2017

        That THEY stops being THEY and involves me and the rest of the planet when their choices hurt others. It´s simple logic. Following your advice we would have never eliminated tobacco from hospitals and beating your wife wouldn´t be indictable. So much for someone who cannot not stop mentioning “grow ass people” as an “argument” 🙂 Now, seriously, you grow up.

    They know better no to pull up on her like they did Kelly and Ms Patti. Ri would be petty and pose with PETA in a full fur coat lol

    • Tori May 16, 2017

      They do that type of s***, mind you they call themselves fans tho, and wonder why ppl like Adele and Beyonce have strayed away from doing traditional promo and interviews anymore. Like really be on twitter begging artist to promote their s*** the old way and do s*** like that and think it’s okay.

    I came here ready to shade PETA but I find this letter much more realistic, nicely toned and complementary. I hope Rihanna responds and donates the fur pieces if she still has them.

    • Jasmine May 16, 2017

      So it is okay for people in Syria to wear fur but not okay for Americans to wear it?NONSENSE BS is what you wrote.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 17, 2017

        Jasmine Your total lack of logic is shocking.

      • Jasmine May 17, 2017
        +4

        @JOHNVIDAL The only one lacking logic and reasoning is you. You are attacking people for having a difference of opinion but you lack the ability to provide reasoning or receipts to back up your opinion that animals are of the same importance as humans.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 18, 2017
        +2

        What???LOL Are you providing receipts or anything? LOL Evidence is tehre for you to check if you wish. I suppose you prefer to remain ignorant. Like I said, please educate yourself. It´s the only thing I´ve said from the beginning. I have only put you in your place when you have acted aggressive. This wasn´t a bad letter at all to being with. Just asking someone to considerate something. Just like a couple of reasonable Rihanna fans stated in this very same post. Grow up (and check the info 🙂 ).

      • Jasmine May 18, 2017
        +6

        There is no evidence that supports animals are as important as humans. You have no receipts to back up your idiotic opinions so STFU. And what kind of man uses a female picture as his avatar? Seems like you are living in delusion and all kinds of crazy.

    Stop wearing fur. But, send me yours so we can send to someone else to wear.

    Thanks,
    Peta

      Yes! 😂👍🏽 Aha but someone who hasn’t bought this high quality fur piece and wear it for free.

    It is a PERFECT letter. Can you guys please stop being so SUPERFICIAL just cause a fair thing involves your fave and that instantly means that it is unfair to you? People need to wake up in so many levels. I am a Mariah and many more artists “fan”. But I will never like it if they wear fur or if they are involved in something that is not appropiate. People with a brain can separate things. Your life is not about stan wars or shouldn´t be. Live your life through your experiances, not a pucking celebrity you´ll never get to know. I´m glad that animal rights movements and veganism is growing at a very fast rate and even though I don´t care or support people like Miley Cyrus when it comes to music and their basicness, I appreciate they are totally vegan and try to spread the message in positive ways. It is unstoppable. It also seemed impossible a few decades ago to eliminate tobacco from public places (it even was advertised as GOOD for your lungs LMAO) and it happened. Same with Serena and Venus Williamns, Ellen, Pamela Anderson, Sia and many more. I´m almost vegan now (transitioning, I´m almost there) and I can´t stop meeting people who have become vegan or have given up meat or dairy after being exposed to the nutritional and medical facts and obviously to the repulsive animal abuse. Very happy when good changes happen 🙂 I can´t wait to see all those industries fall apart.

    • Jasmine May 16, 2017

      You should take your own advice and worry about yourself rather than what celebs wear and/or eat. The “facts” you state are just opinions used to support the vegan agenda. There is more biological research out there that supports the fact no animals are meant to be vegans. Even herbivores like deer and elephants eat meat once in a while. The animals used to make fur coats are rodents so I see nothing wrong with putting rodents to good use since they are nuisance animals to begin with.

        Jasmine The dumbest thing I have ever read in a reply. Have you even attened basic school? It truly hurts. Apart from being so ignorant (I won´t address the hervibores thing beacsue just WOW) how can you be so closed minded and have such poor logic? It´s not about worrying about anyone. When other people´s “choices” hurt the others or the planet then IT IS my business too. Please educate yourself on the issue before making yourself look like a r***** with zero knowledge about anything. Meat and dairy industry are following tobacco´s stpes one afte rthe other. They are starting to panick. And I´m glad. People like you who refuse to have a look at what happens will make the change slower, but it is happening thankfully. The planet needs it. It is unsustainable.

      • B.R May 17, 2017
        +2

        Yes JohnVidal you have a point but that doesn’t mean everyone has to agree and follow suit. I respect your choices but that doesn’t mean anyone else should have to follow suit.

      • Jasmine May 17, 2017
        +7

        @JOHNVIDAL Do not come for me by calling me names simply because I disagree with your opinion. It is your right to believe animals have the same value as humans but don’t attack people for not agreeing with you on that. I believe animals are not of the same importance as humans and it is perfectly LEGAL for humans to wear rodent fur and include meat / dairy in their daily diets. Meat, fur, cigarettes, and alcohol are never going to be banned because the vegan agenda is all BS. They just use animal lovers like you to feed their BS agendas like attacking black celebrities but never do anything when it comes to real lobbying or protesting state / federal government to make a change. At least I am smart enough to see through the BS while you are stuck on stupid pathetically trying to be an internet bully but failing miserably at it.

        You absolutely don´ty get any point AT ALL. It´s truly sad. I don´r acre about PETA in particular or if in your opinion black people are attacked by them or not. I´m talking about the whole thing globally and how things are quickly changing. You can be a part of it already or you can be one of those that never changes unless majority of people and the laws have already changed. Just out of fear or ignorance. Ugh…

        @JoanneVidal What kind of man uses a female picture as his main picture? Seems like you are living in delusion and all kinds of crazy.

    • Lol May 17, 2017

      I stopped reading this halfway because I realized this entire article is you trying to talk sense into people. I’ll just cut it short — people don’t give a crap if Rihanna wears fur or not even though fur is obtained by questionable means. And that won’t change. No matter how “childish” or “impossible” our logic might be, no one will care. It’s admirable that you’re arguing for the sake of the planet, but you’re trying too hard to persuade rather than educate.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 18, 2017

        lol You say it as if it were a bad thing. Seriously. You never know when or where you plant seeds on people´s brains. People end caring eventually. If not, essential changes for right movements would have never happen. Please be a little bit more open minded. Many people care, and the number can´t stop growing. Cheers! 🙂

    Lol hey! Can’t please everyone! She isn’t the first nor the last! People like their fur! They want an @.

    • Diane Poole May 16, 2017

      First of all,and more importantly is PETA should maybe go after the people killing the animals,and the manufacturers of furs instead of asking her to donate the fur for someone else to wear! Soundz real dumb to me!!! Soundz like some real american s*** to me. Itz like allowing tonz of drugz to be brought into the u.s. and distributed,then busting the street dealer!!!

      • JOHNVIDAL May 17, 2017
        +2

        Diane your logic is so basic it hurts. If there´s no demand, those industries disappear. As easy as that. The industry is not going to change. They want money at the expense of anything. Governments have no full control since indutries won´t allow them. So in cases like this, the consumer is the one with the last word. Please educate yourself.

      If you knew anything about what happens with certain industries you would include THIS as one of those pshits that are going on in the world. It´s a pretty important issue. Probably the next big change the world is going to have to face.

The Bajan sensation made folk stop, look, and listen as she arrived at day 2 of the 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival yesterday.
