Lady Gaga Warned By PETA: Stop Wearing ‘Dumb Furs’

Lady Gaga admonished for wearing fur.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals shamed Lady Gaga on Monday in a letter to the pop superstar’s rep obtained by Towleroad. Dan Mathews—an openly gay senior VP at PETA who once said he admired Andrew Cunannan because “he got Gianni Versace to stop using fur”—warned Gaga that she is destined to become a target just like Kim “Perfect Bitch” Kardashian:

Dear Gaga,

Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: “I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur.” 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. I’m also including this brief video hosted by Tim Gunn showing the violent cruelty that you promote when you wear fur. What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat? Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation. PETA has long participated in Pride events around the country, and just last week, we helped lead protests against Chick-fil-A. But by wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.

We await your reply.


Dan Mathews
Senior VP

Meat dresses, frog frocks, and fur hats, oh my! Gaga isn’t making any friends at the organization known for using extreme tactics to get their anti-cruelty message across. Sounds like the turncoat better watch her back, lest she become the next victim of an activist’s baking ingredients assault like “fur hag” Kim Kardashian.
