Pop singer Pink, who is currently my favorite person on the planet, went public with the information in a recent interview with the UK newspaper News of the World. Pink was understandably pissed off about the fact that Beyonce has animals violently killed so she can wear them around town. Here are some choice tidbits:
"I only hope she gets bit on the arse by whatever animal she wears. … People will think it's ok or cool, but it's not.""Some of the practices are so cruel and as a celebrity you have a responsibility to think about the message you're sending out by wearing fur."
For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video of our own recent attempt to reason with Beyonce on the subject. By an odd coincidence, we won a contest to have dinner with Beyonce and her mom, so we took the opportunity to have a little chat with them.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
