Call me old fashioned, but protesting a person’s decision to wear, sell or design fur products by vandalizing property just ISN’T COOL!! Of course I hate fur as much as the next vegan, but I know better than to grab the nearest can of spray paint every time I get angry.
An animal rights group known as the Paint Panthers launched a full on graffiti attack outside of fashion designer Donna Karan’s New York home. The group sprayed abusive messages on the streets surrounding her Hamptons property- including “Bunny Butcher”, a reference to her use of fur in her creations.
When asked to comment, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — a long-time critic of Karan’s use of fur — denied any knowledge of the attack. However, PETA’s president Ingrid Newkirk said: “If Donna Karan stopped making clothes out of tortured bunnies, we’d be out of her life faster than you can say, ‘Yoga mat’.”
Like I said earlier, FUR SUCKS! Fur is so the opposite of cool I could spit…and I might, but what I won’t do is grab a can of fizzy colors and deface public property to try and prove my point. Come on guys – don’t embarrass the movement.
