Los Angeles – Don’t be fooled by the coat that she’s got—that “equality” coat Jennifer Lopez wore at the iHeartRadio Music Awards was faux fur (see the designer’s Instagram page here), not real animal fur.
Please see the following statement from PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange:
Older, wiser … and kinder? In 2002, when Ben bought Jennifer a chinchilla coat, PETA wrote to him, and he said, “Never again.” Twenty years later, the couple has reunited, and no animals have been killed for JLo’s wardrobe because she’s gone faux, for the animals’ sake. We wish the couple a happy fur-free future together.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
