    Have you been following the FUR situation with Lady GAGA? So NOT cool! She took to twitter confirming, yes her jacket is real fur and did it with a smug attitude.

    ‘For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real,¬†please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You! LOVE, gaga’

    Now people are posting on her facebook a picture about the TRUE monsters of fur created by PETA. PHOTO 

    I did take to twitter and re-tweet the photo and wrote a personal message on her facebook fanpage. Looks like I’m not the only one expressing disappointment over her wearing and proudly promoting fur. Here is what I wrote….

    ‘LOVE your music and your message of living brave and kind HOWEVER wearing animal by-products especially fur is not a lined with those values. PLEASE take a moment today and meditate on how that fur actually got on the rack. I will BET that horrific progress does not make your heart sing. There are MANY fake fur options that is high fashion AND compassionate. PLEASE show a change of heart for the animals and for your conscious fans!! Much love, Kelly Bennett, The Vegan Consultant xx’

    When you’re on her page, you’ll see LOTS of hateful messages about her wearing fur. As I do agree about their points NOT to wear fur, I disagree with the messaging. I think the more vegans and animal activist show LOVE and just point out the ethical disconnects, the more people are going to wake up and pay attention. I think there is a place for bloody photos to show real life proof however just saying hateful words is not the answer… It plays into the sterotype of vegans and animal activist. If you are disappointed by Lady Gaga’s use of fur and attitude, let her know… kindly. Lets see how much power LOVE has to impact a cruel situation. xo
