If you didn’t already love The Veronicas for their infectiously catchy single, “Untouched”—you’ll be sure to love one half of the sisterly duo for what she has to say about the disgusting fur industry.

Not only is Jess fur-free, but as this article proves, she isn’t shy to give the fur trade a major diss and give us a shout out in the process! She told Confidential “Death for these animals is a horror story—the most common method used for killing foxes is electrocution. I can’t speak for Lisa [her twin and band mate], but I admire the approach to the eye-catching photo shoots PETA do to get the important message out there.” Jess certainly knows her stuff when it comes to the fur trade, and we’re very appreciative that she’s not afraid to speak up.

Not only is Jess unafraid to speak her mind with words, but Jess was recently spotted on a train with a “F**K FUR” patch adorning the back of her jacket. Sassy, much? We love it!

And since no pro-animal deed should go unrewarded, we sent the twins flowers and thanked them for their kind words.

P.S. You can speak up too! What are you waiting for?

    What if it is fake fur?
    Would you also not be ok with that?

    I love the veronicas! I think they’re vegan too. If you look on youtube they have a video of them making vegan tacos. So yummy.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
