Attention all Barbz, Ken Barbz, and animal lovers! During her cover photo shoot for Marie Claire, ultimate bubble-gum hip-hop queen Nicki Minaj said that she won’t wear fur, and we are totally thrilled!
Nicki has flaunted fur in the past, and as a thank-you for her change of heart, PETA has sent her a bouquet of pink roses—her favorite flowers!
Millions of animals—including minks, foxes, raccoons, and rabbits—are skinned for their fur each year. A recent investigation found that millions of dogs and cats in China are being bludgeoned, hanged, bled to death, and strangled with wire nooses for their fur, which is exported and often mislabeled as “rabbit” or “raccoon.”
Plain and simple: If you wear fur, there’s no telling whose skin you’re wearing.
