Yelle is the real deal. Known for her tastemaking style and catchy electro-pop beats, she has an abundant amount of untamed compassion for animals. The star recently teamed up with peta2 to produce a fierce new ad urging you to “let your compassion run wild” by being comfortable in your own skin and letting animals keep theirs. Check out her ad—along with our exclusive video!
“I’m against wearing fur,” Yelle says. “It’s not normal!” And straight up, she’s right. There is nothing normal about killing animals in order to wear their fur. It’s not fashionable or trendy—it’s just cruel.
While it’s appalling to think that anyone still wears fur, the shocking truth is that many people are unaware of the horrific cruelty involved in the making of each fur-trimmed coat or hat or atrocious foxtail accessory. Each year, millions of rabbits, raccoons, foxes, dogs, and cats are killed for their fur, and there are no laws regulating how these animals are treated. After enduring horrible living conditions on fur farms, animals are often beaten to death, skinned alive, or anally electrocuted in order not to harm their pelts—all to make a profit for an industry that is barbaric and unnecessary.
So let your compassion run wild and don’t support the fur industry. Be comfortable in your own skin and let animals keep theirs.
