New York – Below, please find a statement from PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews in response to the announcement that Donna Karan is finally going fur-free:
Donna Karan last made a fur-free pledge in 2008 after a personal appeal from PETA pal Tim Gunn, but she reneged on it, kicking off a decade of runway disruptions, graphic ads, and protests. Now that no designer can ignore the public’s opposition to skinning animals alive for fur, Donna Karan will have an even bigger backlash on her hands if she breaks her promise again.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear,” and more information is available at PETA.org.
