The Killers: Killer Musicians? Yes! Furry Animal Killers? No!

The Killers

We were kind of bummed when we saw a picture of The Killers in which Dave Keuning, the guitarist, was wearing a big ol’ furry jacket. “Oh no!” we thought, “and with us so looking forward to their new album.” As you can imagine, there were sad faces all around—but not for long!

When we emailed Dave, his rep told us that not only was the jacket totally faux, but also that the entire band is against fur and completely fur-free! This is awesome. It looks like The Killers agree with the long list of stars who refuse to promote, ya know, genital electrocution and other such lovely aspects of the fur industry.

So The Killers are against fur? Hmm … “Rather Go Naked” ad, anyone?

What? Don’t look at me like that. You were thinking the same thing … right?
