New York Fashion Week is supposed to be about fashion, design and expression — but according to PETA you better express yourself without “draping yourself in the skins of animals who were beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their fur.”

Yeah, they’re talking to you Chris Brown!

Earlier this week Brown and his on-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran were photographed sitting in the front row of Michael Costello’s runway show wearing some very large and very dead fur coats.

For decades, wearing real fur was a thing of the past with most people opting to wear faux fur, if any at all.

But in recent years, real fur has made a huge comeback with designers like Balenciaga, Giambattista Valli and Alexander Wang using it in their collections.

PETA of course was up in arms at the 25-year-old singer and his girlfriend and released a statement condemning them for their flagrant disregard for life.

“There are few things more out of touch than draping yourself in the skins of animals who were beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their fur. Pink’s New York Fashion Week PETA billboard shows that true beauty comes from kindness — Chris Brown’s furs are just more of the same from him: ugly violence.”

The “ugly violence” they refer to is Brown’s attack of ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, in which he plead guilty to one count of felony assault.

New York Fashion Week criticism is nothing new for PETA, and they routinely put up their celebrity “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” billboards outside the fashion event.

 

The couple should just be thankful they didn’t get a bucket of fake blood thrown on them!
