While legendary singer Aretha Franklin may be upset at Beyoncé for honoring Tina Turner as the “queen” at this year’s Grammy Awards, PETA is turning the spotlight on her use of massive fur coats. The animal rights group thinks Franklin should think of herself as less a queen and more a joker. From the article,
In a letter to Franklin, PETA spokesperson Dan Matthews writes, “Music lovers may think of you as a ‘queen,’ but to animal lovers, you are a court jester . . . Why not shed the old-fashioned look that adds pounds to your frame and detracts from your beautiful voice? Please consider donating your furs to the homeless as ‘queen of compassion,’ Mariah Carey, did. You’ll get a tax credit for the donation, and we at PETA will all sing your praises.”
PETA’s Jack hilariously compares the above photo to a walrus in a cat costume. Funny stuff.
