Is it fair or sad that whenever anyone wants to insult someone else’s intelligence they often compare them to a Kardashian?
This time the diss was used by Dan Mathews, Senior Vice President of PETA, in an open letter to Lady Gaga. Back in 2009, Gaga told Ellen DeGeneres "I hate fur and I don't wear fur." But lately she’s been spotted wearing various animals, including on the poster for Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills.
Mathews posted a letter to Gaga on PETA.org in response to her decisions:
Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: "I hate fur and I don't wear fur." I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia. I'm also including this brief video hosted by Tim Gunn showing the violent cruelty that you promote when you wear fur. What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it's fake, or are you a turncoat? Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation. PETA has long participated in Pride events around the country, and just last week, we helped lead protests against Chick-fil-A. But by wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you're making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.
We await your reply.
Senior Vice President
What do you think of this letter? Is Gaga being a hypocrite by wearing fur afer she said she hated it? Did PETA go to far to call her out and — gasp! — compare her to Kim Kardashian? Are you confused about how this animal rights issue became about gay fans, since the two are not necessarily related?
