Los Angeles – Since Saweetie’s new song “Icy Chain” references PETA—“Mink on my body like I just went hunting / Tell PETA I’m being 100”—the group is sending her a luxe faux-fur coat from Apparis that it hopes will inspire a change of heart. Below, please find a statement from PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange:
“We’ll be 100, too: It’s a shame that the icy girl seems to have an icy heart. PETA hopes that once Saweetie sees how luxurious faux-fur coats are, she’ll ditch the ones made from animals who valued their lives and were tormented and killed for a look that says, ‘I don’t care how others suffer.’”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
