With the fox’s cute face and fluffy tail clearly on display, the cruel fashion accessory has caused outrage from animal rights group PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals), RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
“The outfit really speaks for itself. PETA is considering passing the hat so that someone can buy her a heart,” PETA spokesperson Wendy Wegner told RadarOnline.com, who said the fur appears to be from an Arctic White Fox, which is often electrocuted for its fur.
The group has targeted the Bad Romance singer in the past for her fur fetish and even sent her a letter begging her to be more animal-friendly in her fashion choices.
“Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: ‘I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur,'” wrote Dan Mathews, Senior Vice President of PETA in a message sent to Gaga obtained by RadarOnline.com after she wore a thick fuchsia Giorgio Armani fur jacket and hat combo from their Fall 2012 collection out on a sweltering New York day last month.
“I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia. What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat?” he asked.
Gaga once expressed her disdain for animal cruelty in the fashion industry by wearing a hilarious jacket made up of Kermit the Frog pelts. “I thought it was commentary on not wearing fur, because I hate fur and don’t wear fur,” she said, but has clearly since changed her stance on the subject.
