Grim Reaper Targets Donna Karan Boutique

Published by PETA.

A Donna Karan Boutique in Manhasset, New York, received some negative attention yesterday, when PETA’s “Grim Reapers”—holding signs that read, “Donna, Bring Out Your Dead!”—greeted pedestrians and passing cars. The purpose of the protest was to spotlight DK’s continued use of fur in her collections—even after we’ve made several attempts to educate her on the hideous cruelty of the fur industry. Check out photos from the demonstration below!




Our Grim Reaper didn’t take any lives, but as DK’s fatal record shows, she can’t claim the same. Her refusal to drop fur from her collections only continues to support cruel practices such as anal electrocution and drowning.

Donna Karan needs to take a hint from her compassionate fashion counterparts and go fur-free. Because seriously, DK, how many animals are you going to kill to make your ugly fur coats?
