Brooke Shields has officially made it on to our naughty list. And not the good kind of naughty, either! The well-known actress recently spoke out on behalf of the (devil) fur industry and helped them pimp out pelts.
“Wearing fur may be associated with something grandmotherish. Something you wear when you visit the opera, or if you are a rock star and wears it inside out. But I will advocate that both my generation and the younger generation can wear fur“, says Brooke Shields.
Sorry, Brookey, we disagree! Wearing fur is associated with cruelty and environmental destruction. Wearing fur is associated with an outdated philosophy about how other species should be treated. Wearing fur is associated with a certain actor’s general lack of knowledge about a very unkind industry.
This whole furry controversy occurred when Shields visited Kopenhagen Fur’s creative workshop to design her own mink coat, stating that it’s every little girl’s dream to own such a garment. Le sigh.
“I will wear the fur garment when I follow my children to school, when I drink coffee and when I sleep“, says Shields.
And for each moment you spend in that coat, we shall spend equal time educating the world about the horrors of the fur industry and why it will always be the ultimate bummer. This is a promise!
