Lady Gaga has been photographed in a slew of designer fur coats in recent weeks, and PETA is not pleased. The animal rights activist group issued a "Dear Gaga" letter to the pop star on Monday, urging her to stop the recent fur frenzy.
In the letter, PETA's senior vice president Dan Mathews referenced Gaga's 2009 conversation with Ellen Degeneres, in which she said, "I hate fur and I don't wear fur," and asked her what has happened since then. "Recent photos… make it appear that you have amnesia," he wrote, including links to photos of Gaga in a taupe coat by Michael Kors, a hot-pink jacket by Giorgio Armani -- which is made of rabbit fur, representatives for the company confirmed to Billboard.com -- and the poster for her upcoming "Machete Kills" film, in which she dons a wolf stole.
Mathews added, "By wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you're making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian."
