What a huge victory!!! Donna Karan (aka “The Bunny Butcher”) has put down her knife for good after being “gently” persuaded by PETA to go fur-free.
Karan just announced that her fall 2009 lines will be fur-free and that she has “no plans” to use fur in the future! This victory came literally days after PETA launched their (now offline) DonnaKaranBunnyButcher.com website and after mega–fashion guru Tim Gunn sent Karan and designer Giorgio Armani a video that he narrated for PETA, urging them to open their eyes to the violent and bloody fur industry.
Now listen, I certainly don’t support EVERY decision PETA makes, but it’s times like this when all of us owe the notorious animal rights group a great big thank you for their service. It’s obvious that without their pressure Donna Karan would still be using fur! Thanks, guys!
