Pink Wants a Royal Flush of Animal Cruelty
Hasn’t anyone ever told the Royal family that it’s highly impolite not to answer letters? Lucky for animals, the beautiful, talented, and outspoken Pink is not discouraged that the Royals have failed to respond to her—not once, but twice!
Attempt 1: Five years ago, the longtime PETA supporter turned down an invitation from Prince William to perform at his 21st birthday party. She declined because of his hunting habits, and then posed a question of her own to the future king, asking him why he hunted animals at all. And … she’s still waiting. Maybe he is too busy, or maybe he hasn’t figured out why. You choose.
Even with her brand-new album, Funhouse, scheduled for release October 28 and an insanely hectic schedule, the singer has not forgotten about Prince William’s lack of response, recently saying, “It’s a bit rude, isn’t it?”
Attempt 2: This time, Pink challenged The Queen. The star asked Queen Elizabeth II why the bear fur on The Queen’s Guards’ caps hasn’t been replaced with a synthetic, cruelty-free material, as PETA Europe has suggested repeatedly.
Perhaps the Royal family needs to pass more Royal edicts, like this one from Prince Charles, who kicked foie gras off all Royal menus this year.
And seriously, respond to Pink’s letter. She’s waiting, PETA’s waiting, and the bears are waiting. This rock star means business … have you seen that billboard in Times Square?!
