Beyonce's Iguana and Python-Skin Super Bowl Outfit Slammed by PETA
Beyonce may have rocked out her Super Bowl halftime performance, but not everyone was thrilled with the 31-year-old’s choice of costume.
The black bodysuit, designed by Rubin Singer, was made out of python and iguana skin and leather.
“We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés, she’d probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully,” said PETA in a statement. “Today’s fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.”
Last month, animal activists blasted Beyonce for performing at President Barack Obama’s inauguration in a Christian Dior mink coat.
“Friends of Animals’ members and supporters were among the millions who saw, or will see images of, you in a Christian Dior mink coat,” wrote one group in a letter to the singer. “What does it mean when one of the most popular musicians in the world endorses the fur trade in such a dramatic way?”
