I guess we can call this the dog days of summer as Elisabetta Canalis plays as if she is a dog locked in the car during a hot summer day. Mogul pet owners, please remember that your pets get hot also. Don’t leave them in the car when it is hot outside.
It was just a matter of time before the heads at PETA got their pleather in a bunch. Seems that they are not feeling the Beats By Dre headphones featuring the animal fur with Oscar de la Renta.
I hope this message finds you well. As you may know, PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters dedicated to the protection of animals. You have many fans here.
We’re writing today after reading about your new fox-fur headphones design with Oscar de la Renta. We wanted to get in touch to urge you to keep fur and exotic-animal skins out of your Beats by Dre designs. Foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals—including cats and dogs—are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, strangled with wire nooses, drowned, and even skinned alive for their pelts. Most animals killed for their fur are slaughtered in China, where there are no penalties for those who abuse animals on fur farms.
Please take a moment to view this short video on the fur trade, hosted by actor Eva Mendes.
With so many fashionable, cruelty-free materials available these days, we hope that you will keep animals in mind and choose not to use fur or exotic skins in your collection. You’d be joining designers such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Bouwer, and Vivienne Westwood, who have banned fur from their designs.
You have a tremendous amount of influence on young people—won’t you please consider using your platform to advocate kindness toward animals by pledging never to design with real fur and exotic skins?
With kind regards,
Michelle Cho PETA
We feel ya PETA the headphones are ugly as hell.
Angela Simmons gets her Fresh on for PETA and the whole world to see. Angela is really in the promo mode these days isn’t she?
I love PETA if only for the fact that they can get women to take their clothes off!!! Elisabetta Canalis couldn’t resist the urge to show some skin for the group, and for it I give her the thumbs up.
If meat really does that, then it is not a good look!!
!!!!WARNING IF YOU ARE AT WORK YOU MAY NOT WANT TO CLICK THE VIDEO, IT CONTAINS FULL NUDITY!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! I DON’T WANT A FEW MOGULS TO LOSE THEIR JOB VIEWING THIS!!!
I am not a follower of PETA, so I don’t really know if this is regular behavior from them. But I will say that I find the video a little disturbing, especially since they claim to be the voice for animal rights. PETA has released its 2010 State of the Union address, and needless to say it is a little racy. The video shows an African-American woman slowly striping down to her bare essentials while delivering the speech in front of the Senate chamber. As I watched the video I just knew that at some point she would stop. I didn’t think she would go all the way there! But she did, she stripped all the way down to her Born-Day suit.
