While extreme animal activism group PETA has been known for touting certain celebrities who opt for fur-less forward fashions, it also has gained notoriety for knocking those who don’t. Their latest bone to pick? With none other than Barbadian beauty Rihanna. Seems the ‘Cheers’ singer shouldn’t be expecting much applause from the activists as she has recently come under fire for a feathered number (seen above) she was spotted in recently.
A spokesperson for the group even compared the singer’s foray into feathered fashions to her ‘Chris Brown incident’.
More after the jump:
Sandra Smiley, a spokeswoman for the group, is quoted as saying:
“Rihanna is flaunting stolen property, in this case feathers possibly plucked right off their rightful owners’ backs. She has shown little regard for foxes, cows and reptiles, now she’s adding birds to the list of species exploited for her dubious looks.”
She continued stating:
“We keep hoping that Rihanna, a victim of violence herself, will learn to open her heart and start empathizing with the suffering of others. That includes the animals who are beaten, gassed, electrocuted and poisoned to be turned into fashion accessories.”
