Cameras caught notorious fur hag Donna Karan as she lied about using fur in her cruel collections. Maybe her fingers were crossed behind her back, because a quick glance at her stores and shows proves that she's still in the bunny-butchering business. We already knew that the yoga follower was a New Age hypocrite, but now it's obvious that she's an old-school liar too.
E-mail Donna Karan and let her know that you won't be caught dead in her clothes as long as bunnies are.

Let's play a game. You were just given an envelope which contains exactly $4,800. You have 30 seconds to decide how to spend that money. The catch is, you have to choose from the four options below:
Time's up. So what will it be?

Yoga devotee Donna Karan is going to have to spend a lot of time meditating with her eyes closed if she hopes to miss the hundreds of posters plastered all over Manhattan that point out the designer's less-than-enlightened use of rabbit fur in her fashions.
Those same posters recently put in an appearance outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Karan was cohosting the "Change Begins Within" benefit.
That's right, Donna. Change begins within—and charity begins at home. It seems like it would be a good idea to put your own (fashion) house in order if you want to try to show others the path to spiritual healing.

Donna Karan knows about the suffering that goes into each and every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag that contains the skins of dead rabbits (we know—we showed her ourselves). You might think that a "Zen, revolutionary designer" such as DK would take a stand and permanently remove fur from her collections, but you'd be wrong. Check out our latest friendly reminder to her that she has strayed from "the path":
This comes after the recent flooding of Karan's DKNY Facebook page earlier last week.
DK needs to take a cue from cruelty-free fashion friends Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Liz Claiborne, who have chosen to leave fur where it belongs—on the bunnies! Please let her know what you think too!

Today we're celebrating Cyber Monday by flooding Donna Karan's Facebook page. This method has been used in the past to commandeer the pages of other high-profile folks in order to get a point across. Here's the vertical message that people saw when they logged on to the notorious fur hag's Facebook wall this morning:
We're banking on the fact that this ingenious message—sent on the busiest online shopping day of the year— will make the throngs of people perusing Donna Karan's pelt-pimping page think twice about giving their hard-earned bucks to a bunny butcher. After all, there's nothing appealing about wearing fur from rabbits who howl like human babies when their skin is peeled away from their body as if it were a sweater.
So after you finish shopping online, how about using your Facebook page to help us spread the word that Donna Karan butchers bunnies?
P.S. After this major flood, Donna Karan had better hope that she can swim. What do you think?

Bearing Fashion Forward leaflets and clubs (and baring quite of bit of leg), PETA's "cave women" made sure that shoppers and tourists at San Francisco's bustling Union Square knew that Donna Karan (aka the "Bunny Butcher") has prehistoric attitudes about killing animals and wearing their fur.
With so many innovative, animal-free fabrics to keep wearers warm and dry, it's never been easier for fashionistas to Express their style without making bunnies scream. Encourage your Facebook friends to speak up for bunnies too.

Donna Karan is thumbing her nose at compassion by launching a clothing line that's dripping with dead rabbits. And so PETA's finest, armed with protest signs and toy bunnies, held a demonstration outside a political fundraiser that was being held in New York City yesterday. The fundraiser had been organized by both Karan and "fur-free and fabulous" first lady Michelle Obama. The animal defenders made sure that everyone within earshot learned that Donna Karan is a "Bunny Butcher."
There was a tremendous amount of interest in this anti-fur demonstration—the first of its kind in New York this fall. The protest was covered by Gothamist and NBC, and follow-up stories continue to emerge.

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.
