PETA’s Fashionable Gift to Michelle Obama

Written by PETA | May 24, 2011

One of the things that I like most about Michelle Obama (besides her penchant for home-grown veggies and her rockin’ biceps) is her sense of style. A fashion icon who has been compared to Jackie O, Michelle O is notably fur-free.

In the hopes of persuading the FLOTUS to banish all skins from her closet, PETA sent her a stylish faux-leather jacket from

In a letter accompanying the jacket, we explained how cows raised for their flesh and skin endure branding, dehorning, castration, and tail-docking, all without painkillers. At the slaughterhouse, many are improperly stunned, meaning that they are skinned and dismembered while still conscious.  

I look forward to seeing how great the perennially polished patriot looks in her cruelty-free coat and the example that she’ll set for stylish and conscientious American women.
