Burberry in Trouble With PETA
Oh dear. Last week Burberry were getting all hot under their designer collars because Christopher Bailey had been seen out and about with Victoria Beckham. This week they're in trouble with anti-fur campaigners PETA, and I don't know about you, but I don't fancy their chances, personally.
PETA are upset because Burberry's contribution to the Anglomania exhibition at the Met includes a fox-fur trimmed trench coat. In fact, they're so annoyed that they're demanding the design house withdraw the piece
Peta president Ingrid Newkirk said: "Displaying fur garments, especially fur items that serve to advertise goods that visitors can purchase just a few blocks from the museum, sends the message the it's somehow acceptable to torture and kill animals for mere fashion."
The Met, meanwhile, say the trench coat serves to "open up the moral discourse surrounding blood sports and fur fashions."
The fur trench coat was not available for comment.
Whose side are you on?
