Chris Brown and girlfriend Karrueche Tran may have looked fashion forward while wearing matching fur coats during a Fashion Week even in New York on Tuesday, but People for the Ethical Treatment of animals is calling out the couple.
“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,” says Lisa Lange, PETA senior vice president, in a statement. “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.”
Pink appeared completely naked on a massive billboard in New York City’s Times Square as part of the animal activist group’s “Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur” campaign.
Brown and Tran were attending Michael Costello’s show. The designer has dressed everyone from Beyonce to Rihanna.
