Why Is Delia's Supporting Ringling Bros?
I used to be all about Delia’s. Last summer, some peta2 staffers and I went to Richmond for the day, and we most definitely made sure to stop by the Delia’s store, which is why I’m all the more disappointed that the clothing company is selling a Ringling Bros. tee that proclaims the animal-abusing circus to be “the greatest show on Earth.”
PETA contacted Delia’s CEO to let him know that Ringling beats animals, separates mother elephants from their babies, and chains elephants for up to 100 hours at a time—and even sent a link to our new undercover investigation, but Delia’s continues to sell the Ringling tees. In case you haven’t seen the investigation yet, check it out:
It just isn’t right that Delia’s is selling a tee that promotes such blatant cruelty to animals. I mean seriously—these T-shirts are basically allowing customers to be walking billboards for beating elephants.
Please click here to contact Delia’s CEO to ask him to watch our investigation and to stop all sales of Delia’s Ringling tee immediately. Do it for those who have no voice—especially Tonka, Luna, and Ringling’s other elephants.
Let’s make sure Delia’s knows that no one is OK with Ringling beating animals!
