The singer received some backlash this week for wearing a Christian Dior fur coat that not too many people are happy about.
Animals rights group PETA has recently criticised Barbadian singer Rihanna for wearing a fur coat during a public event this week.
In an open letter, PETA claimed that it had sent Rihanna a “faux-fur coat as a gift to replace the fur one.”
The open letter reads: “We saw the numerous comments from fans who were disappointed to see you wearing fur at the Dior event last week. Like us, they wish you would please retire your furs and instead choose a look that kills but doesn’t actually kill anyone.”
“...Please accept this faux fur as a gift from PETA. In addition, we’d like to request that you please consider donating your furs to us. Every fur item causes a tremendous amount of pain and suffering to the foxes, minks, and coyotes who are beaten, electrocuted, gassed, and often skinned alive by the fur industry—and fur production takes a toll on humans as well...”
