Peta accuses Rihanna of exploiting birds

Peta accuses Rihanna of exploiting birds



A dress made from ostrich feathers has gotten Rihanna into hot soup with animal rights group, Peta.

She wore the outfit at the public launch of her new Reb'l Fleur fragrance in London,recently.

Peta spokeswoman Sandra Smiley told the Daily Star that feathers are often ripped off chickens, geese, ostriches and emus in live plucking.

"This can result in gaping wounds that are sewn up with a needle and thread without anaesthetic," she said.

"We keep hoping that Rihanna, a victim of violence herself, will learn to open her heart and start empathising with the suffering of others. That includes animals who are beaten, gassed, electrocuted and poisoned to be turned into fashion accessories."

Rihanna is not the first artist to be crticised by Peta for their fashion choices.

In January last year, when Kelis got critised for wearing fur in public, she responded with a public letter in which she claimed that it was not as serious an issue as "women being maimed", the continued use of sweatshops or women's rights in America, all of which should take priority.

Let's hope vegetarian extraordinaire Morrissey doesn't get wind of all this...
