Alt-Rock Band, Garbage, Call Animal Abusers 'Scum'
Alt-rock band, Garbage, had a message to share with their nearly 743,000 Facebook fans recently:
“Anyone who hurts or neglects an animal is a revolting piece of scum.”
Their simple statement has garnered over 3,900 “likes” so far.
Garbage frontwoman, Shirley Manson, has lent her voice to animal rights causes in the past, including in a PETA public service announcement (PSA) about fur in 2007. In an interview at that time with peta2.com, Manson said, “A lot of my own fans have educated me on this kind of thing. A lot of my fans are very pro-animal rights and often, when I have been wearing fake fur, have said, ‘Is that real?’ and really gotten upset, and I have had to reassure them, ‘No, it’s cool. It’s fake, don’t worry.’ They have made me very conscious of it, and I am really grateful that they have made me pay attention.”
