Elizabeth Hurley has decided to shed her clothes for a new ad campaign. However, unlike PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” angle, Hurley is draping herself in some mink coats for controversial fur house Blackglama. So disappointing.
Model Gisele Bündchen is but one famous celebrity that previously also went the fur route with Blackgama. Then, much like what will soon happen, PETA slammed her decision and a tremendous amount of negative press followed. She immediately apologized saying, “It was bad decision on my part, because I don’t wear fur and I understand their [PETA's] cause. I am the biggest animal lover in the world. I have four dogs and two horses, and I have rescued animals all my life.”
Of course, wearing fur is but the latest decision by Hurley to draw the ire of PETA. Back in July, she was sent a letter by the group over her new organic TV dinners that feature meat from her farm. “We urge you to allow the piglets, calves and lambs on your land to live out their natural lives in comfort and safety and join PETA in promoting a healthy vegetarian diet,” the letter concluded.
Looks like she’ll be receiving another one soon. Stay tuned to hear how this unfolds…
