Bloody Burberry: Photoshop to the Rescue?

Written by PETA | January 8, 2010

I think we can all agree that in this day and age, there’s no excuse for pore poor Photoshopping, but someone at Bloody Burberry seems to have missed that memo.

Burberry

 

In what must have been a tragic Photoshop accident by the oh-so-tragic Burberry, actor Emma Watson seems to have lost one of her legs. Luckily for her, that nub can be transformed back into a leg again with a few clicks of the “undo” button.

The question I’m asking about the whole fiasco is this: Can the magic of Photoshop help the countless animals who have suffered chewed-off limbs in the horrific process of making Bloody Burberry’s fur cuffs, collars, and coats?

No, I guess not.

  • PUT A STOP TO THIS MESS! says:

    ANIMALS have been skinned alive! Thanks alot, Burberry! Please help because torture is not good at all. Start making FAKE fur instead of killing animals! >:|

  • Alex says:

    I think the point of even killing animals for fur is the point that shocks me. I mean… even if they are kept in clean conditions, i don’t understand the point of having animals for a fur coat that we’ll probably throw out eventually. This vanity is costing lives, is fur really worth it ? when you can get synthetic materials that are just as good. It’s pathetic.

  • jeanie says:

    This company and many others should hang their heads in shame. fur belongs on the animals, they did not ask to be born to supply the vanity of so called humans. these people only think of one thing and that is how much money they can make. They come up with all kind of excuses to justify the use of fur. To them no animal is not a money maker, they pretend that they dont know what happens in not only fur farms, but also in places like china etc. Like i said,its all to do with PROFIT!!!

    Can’t believe this. Shopped at Burberry for years never again. Disgusting.

  • PETA says:

    The Fur Advocate – Fur is not biodegradable because of the chemical treatment used to stop it from rotting. Using these chemicals is also dangerous because they can cause water contamination. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has filed complaints against fur farmers for illegally generating and disposing of hazardous waste. In 2006, American mink farms raised and killed 2.86 million minks, which generated 62,920 tons of manure and nearly 1,000 tons of phosphorus, wreaking havoc on water ecosystems. Do not be misled: Farming and trapping are torture for animals, who live their entire lives in tiny wire cages that expose them to the elements or languish in traps for days before the trapper comes to kill them. You can see for yourself how these animals suffer by watching the videos at http://www.PETATV.com/skins.html.

  • The Fur Advocate says:

    Many people just do not seem to get the BENIFITS of real fur over synthetics. In reality, fur is much “greener” than synthetic alternatives, in that it is natural, renewable, and even biodegradable after time, unlike synthetics which are made of petrolium based products which are more consumptive and never decompose. Fur farms are not nearly as cruel as PETA keeps making them out to be. Especially in the U.S. the major fur farms keep their animals clean and healthy as possible. Sick, unkempt animals will not only have bad quality coats, but also spread disease to one another. I personally know a fur farmer, so what I am writing is the truth. It’s not that we don’t respect animals by wearing fur. We do. I wear fur myself, I’m a furrier. But I do not support “cruelty” by any means and obtain my fur from reputable sources. Sure, there are merciless idiots here and there who make the rest of us look bad, but what I am trying to say is that we “fur people” are not all like that. Hopefully this perspective will give you all something different to consider.

    I don’t think it is Emma Watson who is at fault here, it’s all Burberry for treating their animals like this. I doubt she is in any support of the matter & I think that if someone just showed her one of the horrifying videos she would understand. I doubt she knows anything about it. I second the ridiculousness about how PETA can’t show their ads on television because they are “too graphic.” Do they not want children to know where daddy got mommy’s rabbit fur coat from? I don’t understand this nonsense.. I don’t get it. Even if they REALLY do need the fur, they couldn’t just put them to sleep, or something less harmful? Does it pleasure them treating the animals like that? I could never, ever, EVER hurt an animal in the ways I have seen in these videos. Its almost unrealistic.. I just don’t want to believe it. All I have to ask is.. Why?

  • Michellee says:

    My respect for her just went out the door

  • violet crim says:

    I love every animal on the planet earth. animals were here way before we were even here they should not be treated this way! Its humane. what if we all treated them just like they treated the beautiful animals the kill. God does not like what they are doing to his children. yas they are his children! I feel like putting them in cages with no water and no proper shelter. I want to teach them a lesson. Its just not right god will pay them back. Those animals did nothing to deserve this!!!! NOTHING!!!!!! We should put them into the animals situation. they wouldnt like stuff being put up their butts would they no. I have a precious puppy and she is my everything. She recently had beautiful puppies. I treat her with the uttermost respact i give her all my love. I just want to take those suffering animals and love them care for them feed them water them and to just be there for them.I want to. put the humans who is doing this to them in cages so they can see what it is like to be in their situation. Am I right or am Iwrong

  • Olivia Greiffenstein says:

    and all this time i was begging my mom for a real Burberry bag. i defenitely lost my appetite for fashion.

  • Richard Allison says:

    I will NEVER EVER shop at Burberry again until it pulls out all the real fur in its store do they not realise that animals are getting tortured and brutally SKINNED ALIVE in sick China as we speak right now??! this is wrong shame on you Burberry!!

  • Natalie Le Neve says:

    This is sickness i cannot believe Burberry will not stop selling fur in its shops!! i have wrote letters to them and to the chinese government and also to the ambassador of america to try and get this sick trade stopped once and for all it only takes 10 mins to write a quick letter stating the facts on what torture goes on in these chinese fur farms please to anybody who is reading this write to the ambassadors in china and america lets see this get stopped once and for all!!

  • Rui Viegas says:

    I fear for humanity as a whole.

  • Celia says:

    I’m a huge animal lover and I know Emma Watson is too. Burberry has made huge steps in not using fur that comes from places like China who use inhumane methods. I really hope they will continue to improve by not using real fur at all. But I thoroughly doubt we will see any photos of Emma wearing those fur coats from Burberry’s new 2010 FallWinter line. She loves animals and wouldn’t do that.

  • Laura says:

    ugh this really makes me sick and I used to have so much respect for that girl.

  • Kelsey says:

    This is such a disaster. People have no respect for animals what so ever. Animals were here first not humans. They deserve all respect love and care just like us. They have feelings to. How would we like it if we were shot at or something than skinned ALIVE just to make dam clothing for those high rich bastards. Pretty sure we would be frightend and be feeling many other emotions as well. Its horrible and should be stopped!!!!! I love animals.

  • maritza says:

    i find it insane that amazing organizations like PETA cannot show the horrific abuse of animals worldwide on television because it is too “explicit” or “risque” but we can look for hours at AIDS stricken blacks in Africa with stubborn flies on their decaying faces we can look at the blood on the road from yet another drunken road accident gaze at the bodies of dead and dying Palistinians after yet another suicide bomb and all on network news!!! but PETA cannot show the true horrors of what really happens at fur farms and factory farms and laboratories all over the world?? this is the meat we eat the clothes we wear. but god forbid we see what is behind the bloodstained curtains behind the butcher’s wall. there is no god because if he can tolerate the suffering of 6 million jews in Germany why would he turn the other cheek for the beautiful creatures he created way before he created us on the sick sixth day??

  • Nishant Pownarkar says:

    I am very sorry to see all this. It is not good. My question is How we can help the Animals? What is the best way?

  • Dario says:

    All these people that are treating animals in such mater should be treated the same. These savages should be taken of this planet. I personaly wouldn’t show any compasion what so ever if justice is to be brough upon them.

  • Egle says:

    You know what? I think that humans don’t deserve to live at all. How We can be so cruel with these powerless creatures…I don’t understand. It’s horrible…

  • jake says:

    ouch i thought she was better than that. just lost all respect for her

  • carla says:

    I work at a restaurant where all I see is FUR HAGS I probably will say something or worse spill some red wine on them… who cares if I get fired! It discusts me to see these so called Ladies wearing dead animals…..

  • CiaraDell says:

    Does Emma Watson know that Burberry uses fur etc? They could have lied to her or something. I think Peta should tell her about it. IF she does already know that’s very… SHAMEFUL as roxanne said.

  • roxanne says:

    Shame on Emma Watson to support this. I won’t ever watch her again

  • Brien Comerford says:

    The graphic pictures on this blog make me think of God because humans who have no compassion for animals don’t deserve compassion from God.

  • Rev. Meg Schramm says:

    Classic. The photo reminds me of a Rolling Stone Magazine cover where one of the members of the band on the cover shot seemed to be missing both legs. That cover is now a collector’s item.
