Lady Gaga Fires Back at PETA After They Criticized Her for Wearing Fur

8/17/2012




PETA recently posted an open letter to LADY GAGA for wearing what looked like real fur recently, especially after she's said in the past she wasn't cool with that.  They even compared her to KIM KARDASHIAN, who was FLOUR-BOMBED earlier this year for wearing fur.

Well, Gaga has written back, and she said that while she respects PETA and any fans of hers who support them, they can basically SUCK IT.  Not in so many words, of course.

She said, "I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, 'kermit' and not to mention meat, that I have already worn."  (Did she mean "hypocritical" instead of "hypercritical"?  Who knows.  But her "Kermit" comment was a joking allusion to this dress she once wore.)


She added, "I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won't bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat.  I have no chains about this.  You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.  But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, it's a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals.  I respect your views, please respect mine."

And she closed with this, "And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry.  And Kim Kardashian is fabulous."
