Katie Price, a British model recently posted a coat made of what appears to be real fox fur. The picture attracted a bashing from animal lovers. Moreover, Katie has garnered criticism for describing herself as ‘an animal lover’.
The 42-year-old took to her official social media handle to share a photo of herself, the lengthy fox-fur. The material of the black hood can be seen in the picture with the fluffier grey trim standing out.
Soon after the post went viral it started receiving criticism online, the model then deleted the picture. She later turned off the comments section in attempts to evade opinions on her promotions of genuine fur cardigan.
According to the brand the coat is made out of real fox fur and wool is priced under a whopping £300. The brand’s catalogue also has hats adorned with raccoon fur bobbles and coats made out of crocodile skin.
Animal group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) reacted to Katie’s promotional post with a formal statement. PETA director Elisa Allen said, “Katie Price turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to the fact that animals feel pain and people have moved on from wearing fur. The list of stars who reject fur has never been longer, making Price look totally out of touch (sic.)”
A few months ago, Katie was slammed by PETA after her dog, which was meant as a present on her daughter’s birthday, was found dead. The animal rights organisation asserted that the death of three dogs and a horse on Katie’s watch within a few years of time indicates her irresponsible behaviour.
Katie also tried to sell off two cats via Instagram before.
