Twiggy’s New Anti-Fur Ad

Written by PETA | February 18, 2010

Before there was Gaga, Eva, or Natalie, there was Twiggy. From her groundbreaking debut in the ’60s to her insightful (and compassionate) presence on America’s Next Top Model, Twiggy is always in style—so it’s no surprise that the eternally vogue icon shuns fur. Elegant and wise, Twiggy knows that faux is forever trendy, which is why she and a rescue pooch named Jasmine posed in this adorable new ad from PETA U.K.:

 

Twiggy

 

There is no difference between companion animals and those who are tormented and killed on fur farms. Dogs are among the many animals—including cats, rabbits, foxes, and minks—who are starved and left in extremely crowded wire cages to suffer the blazing summer heat and the unbearable winter cold. After miserable lives filled with neglect and abuse, animals on fur farms are slammed to the ground or electrocuted in an effort to kill them. Those attempts often fail, and then the animals suffer the agony of having the skin stripped from their bodies while they are still able to feel pain. Follow Twiggy’s timelessly humane lead and take our pledge to go fur-free.

    “Excuse me John… give me a break. We are not blaming jerks aka Celebs or other people for wearing fur. We just think that they should think twice about the animals that suffered just so that they can look like fools!!!!!!” Carla I thought you were blaming them for wearing fur. Sorry I missed your point. You just want them to think twice about the animals. OK so they think twice about the animals and decide to wear the fur so then you blame them? So lets blame who? I’m confused about that part. Don’t blame people who wear fur don’t blame people who allow importation of fur don’t blame Obama why not blame him he’s proved useless. So blame the animals?

    I love animal rights and I love Twiggy! She’s making a good point as well. Some fur is dog fur! I really pisses me off that people would wear it! Twiggy is a great!

  • jay says:

    Blame the people for it who wear it celebrities included. It’s free economy supply and demand. But prohibited by law should be cat dog or other pet fur used as cheap one in the low priced clothing industry.

    Beautiful ad!!

  • John J says:

    Most fur is not produced in the US. China I think. So if it’s already being produced in another country where there is no animal control then you can’t blame the clebs and others for wearing it. Blame Obama for allowing it to be imported.

  • Andre Inglis says:

    Wooohooo Twiggy!! Furfree and fab! D

  • Marnie says:

    Come on celebs show up and tell the world how awful fur really is !!! Thank you PETA thank you Twiggy…

  • Carla says:

    Love twiggy and this adorable little guy in the picture! I hate people who wear fur!!!!

  • Sonja Talboys says:

    I am glad to see Twiggy back on track for animals after her mistake with an add last year. Breeding and killing animals for peoples vanity is disgusting what right do the human race have to take the coats of these animals it’s pure evil to do this and I hope all the people involved in fur including those who wear it “rot in hell”

  • Terri Hughes says:

    STOP killing animals for their fur.

  • Lulu says:

    Well said Olivia. Twiggy is a goddess as far as I’m concerned. On the other hand those Trollsens always look like sullen dirty skanks drowning in their furs. And how beautiful are Jasmine’s huge ears?

  • Olivia says:

    Woohoo! I love Twiggy she is an icon! hopefully fur hags like the Trollsen twins will finally listen how can you not to Twiggy? Its like WWTW? What would Twiggy Wear?

  • Louise says:

    How is it with you Twiggy to advertize for dogs and cats from a local shelter?
