Ricky Gervais isn’t known for his self-censorship. Whether it’s the Golden Globes or his twitter account, the comedian tells the truth, even when it’s not the most popular opinion.
Thankfully for animals, Gervais recently tweeted his thoughts on fur. As you might imagine, the animal advocate isn’t a fan of skinning animals for fashion.
It starts out pretty innocent with a ‘please’ but it becomes obvious what Gervais thinks of those who make money off of selling fur.
He tweeted, “Please don’t buy fur. And let anyone who does know they’re supporting the disgusting c&#%@ who torture beautiful helpless creatures to death.”
He of course wrote out the word, but I’ll just leave it as see you next tuesday…
This insult came right after @P4Animals and @StopFurTrade asked him to sign a petition against dogs being skinned alive in China for fake Ugg boots. Gervais retweeted and responded, “Petition? I want to fucking kill someone.”
It’s always great to have a powerful and fearless voice on the side of an important issue. And with winter here, it’s the perfect time to get the word out on why fur is for the dogs. Or the minks. Or the chinchillas. Basically, not for humans.
