People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals aka PETA is not very happy with the superstar Beyonce Knowles. PETA says that Bey’s fashion choices are not animal friendly. Check out PETA’s statement inside.
PETA is very concerned with Beyonce’s fashion choice in Perfectly Mae Kicks (PMK) custom Isabel Marant wedge sneakers. The line is called, ‘King Bey.’ What is the issue with the sneakers? So what’s PETA’s issue with her sneaker line? The line is made from MANY animals including crocodile and anaconda skins, stingray, ostrich and calf hair.
PETA put out this statement:
“These custom-made kicks come with a high price and it’s paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed. Although most people aren’t as familiar with the types of animals (snakes, stingrays, crocodiles, and ostriches) killed for this single pair of sneakers as they are with the cats and dogs we share our homes with, these animals are highly sensitive living beings who try hard to avoid capture and suffer enormously when trapped, netted, speared and skinned alive. We hope that Beyonce will choose to wear more clothes from her own clothing line, which features faux fur, and that one day, she’ll go completely cruelty-free. She can always choose the cruelty-free and green fashion favored by compassionate, chic celebrities such as Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway and designers such as award-winning fashion queen Stella McCartney.”
This isn’t Beyonce’s first run in with the group.
