Justin Bieber Fur Coat Ripped By PETA – Exclusive Statement
Justin Bieber is getting ripped by PETA for wearing a fur coat. See the statement exclusively given to Gossip Cop below.
On Monday night, Bieber stepped out in West Hollywood wearing an oversized fur coat. While it was impossible to tell just by looking at the jacket whether it was real or faux, the superstar himself actually confirmed its authenticity. Asked by a paparazzo, who was filming his exit from Hyde night club, whether the coat was, in fact, real, Bieber yelled out his car window, “Hell yeah, it’s f*cking real!” See video below.
Now, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk has harsh words for Bieber’s latest fashion choice, particularly in light of some of his other animal-related behavior. She tells Gossip Cop exclusively:
“I sometimes think that Justin Bieber needs a brain scan, as I suspect his mirror neurons — the seat of empathy — are underdeveloped or undeveloped, given that he acts like a self-absorbed, childish showoff. He seems incapable of seeing how his buying habits cause needless suffering to animals, such as baby tigers, baby monkeys, and wild coyotes. Animal groups are tired of having to clean up after him, from the abandoned baby monkey in Germany (now rescued) to the abusive zoo in Canada (now closed) to having to run ads explaining the horrible ways in which animals die for fur.”
Bieber, who does not use social media often lately, typically doesn’t respond to the organization’s criticism. In recent days, PETA has also urged Donald Trump not to attend a hunting fundraiser following his inauguration next month.
