People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) responded to Tiffany Haddish‘s comments about wearing fur.
Last week Haddish said that a fan gave her a fur vest at a comedy performance and she’s going to wear it “as much as possible,” despite that it goes against everything PETA stands for. In fact, Haddish said she’d keep wearing fur until police stop killing Black people.
“I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m about to start protesting,” she said. “I’m going to wear fur every day until they stop killing Black people. When the police stop killing Black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest. So sorry PETA. Don’t be mad at me, be mad at the police.”
“See how that go?” added Haddish. “Because people are important and so are the animals, to keep me warm.”
In their response, PETA said they were fans of Haddish’s but want her to rethink her form of protest against the police. But the organization didn’t say they agreed with what she said about the cops killing Black people, so one could easily say they want to stay neutral on the subject.
“We love you, Tiffany and as an animal rights organization we advocate for and believe in kindness towards all, including animals,” they stated. “We hope that you choose to protest in a different way that doesn’t harm any humans or any animals but is kind to all.”
