Beyonce’s animal skin shoes slammed by PETA.
Will you be wearing Beyonce‘s fluffy yummy animal skin shoes too?
It seems music artist, Beyonce has caught the ire of animal activist group PETA cause the diva has chosen to bring out a new line of shoes that feature exotic animal skins.
The sneaker wedge design, from Perfectly Made Kicks (PMK), is nicknamed the “King Bey” and features skins including stingray, ostrich, crocodile, and anaconda.
Told a PETA spokesperson to gossipcop:
“These custom-made kicks come with a high price—and it’s paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed. Although most people aren’t as familiar with the types of animals (snakes, stingrays, crocodiles, and ostriches) killed for this single pair of sneakers as they are with the cats and dogs we share our homes with, these animals are highly sensitive living beings who try hard to avoid capture and suffer enormously when trapped, netted, speared, and skinned alive.”
“We hope that Beyoncé will choose to wear more clothes from her own clothing line—which features faux fur—and that one day, she’ll go completely cruelty-free. She can always choose the cruelty-free and “green” fashion favored by compassionate, chic celebrities such as Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway and designers such as award-winning fashion queen Stella McCartney.”
Interestingly Beyonce herself has yet to be seen wearing the shoes in question. Can anyone guess why?
