Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Big Boi, and Sleepy Brown perform during the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Feb. 3, 2019 in Atlanta. 

PETA sent a letter on Monday (Feb. 4) to Big Boi following his Super Bowl halftime show performance, asking him to give the fur coat he was wearing to the animal rights organization's fur donation program.    

"Our hearts sank when you took the stage during the Super Bowl in a fur coat. You have many, many fans here at PETA and around the country who love your music, and were thrilled when it was announced you'd be involved in the halftime show," the letter obtained by TMZ reads. "Can we please convince you to make that your last appearance in a fur coat?"

Furthermore, PETA said the fur will go to people in refugee camps and homeless shelters, and the organization promised to send him a "gorgeous" faux fur coat as a replacement. Mariah Carey, Mary Tyler Moore and Sharon Osbourne are among the many stars who have given their furs to the program.
