PETA is not here for Beyonce.
Before she even had time to wipe the sweat off of the leather and lace leotard that she wore during her Super Bowl half-time performance on Sunday, PETA was already ruffled up at her decision to wear an iguana and python skin ensemble in front of the world.
In a statement to E!, they ripped Baddie Bey for her Rubin Singer creation:
We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés … she’d probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully. Today’s fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.
PETA has been on Beyonce’s tail for a while now. If you may recall, back in 2006, two women won a chance to have a dinner date with Beyonce through a VH1 Save the Music auction and during the dinner, it was revealed that the winners were actually members of PETA. They began ambushing Beyonce about using fur in her House of Dereon clothing line before Mrs. Tina Knowles decided she had had enough. She requested that they leave the building asap while saying, “You are not welcome! I don’t appreciate this at all!”
