Legendary NFL quarterback Joe Namath definitely knows how to make an entrance. Unfortunately, it is often at the expense of defenseless animals.

While everyone else was decked out in sporting attire, “Broadway Joe” showed up for the Super Bowl XLVIII coin toss dressed in a waist-length, hooded mink coat.

Stepping onto the football field in a giant fur coat is nothing new for the 70-year-old Hall of Fame quarterback. In fact, some have gone so far as to suggest that it would have been more shocking if Namath hadn’t worn fur. His fashion choice did spark a heated debate among PETA’s Twitter followers.

Here are just a few thoughts from the public:

 

 

Now, we’re not saying Namath should appear in one of PETA’s anti-fur campaigns anytime soon, but switching to a cruelty-free faux fur jacket doesn’t seem like too much to ask of the New York Jets legend.

  • Joe, you look like a fop.
    Whatever happened to the old Joe?

    He looks like a straight up fool anyway. It’s as if he has to do something controversial in order to stay relevant.

    Agree with Sarah’s tweet, the coat looked better on the animals who had it first.
    Fur is never a fashion statement, unless you’re a total moron.
