  • Besides being known for his skills in producing music, Pharrell Williams has become quite the style maven. One thing fashion is all about is taking risks. The super producer showed up to the opening of Moncler‘s new Parisian store in a fur ensemble. The ensemble caused quite a stir with PETA.

    When Pharrell walked the step and repeat with a fur headpiece paired with an ankle-length fur coat, everyone took notice. The pieces are from Moncler’s winter collection. Pharrell wore the outerwear to support the fashion label since he collaborated with them on a lime of sunglasses. While some praised the outfit for its boldness, others didn’t know what to make of it. However, animal rights organization PETA id have something to say. They want Pharrell to renounce his fur-wearing ways.

    PETA said of Pharrell’s outfit, “If Pharrell knew that animals on fur farms—including dogs and cats—are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their fur, we’re sure that he’d join the growing number of celebrities and top designers who stick to faux fur and pleather. The fashion world is moving in the direction of cruelty-free chic—a classy look that Pharrell sports better than anyone. We’re contacting him, sending him this video narrated by Stella McCartney, and hoping he joins Russell Simmons, among other fashion icons, in saying “no” to fur forever,” a representative of the organization said.

    What do you think of Pharrell wearing fur? Should he renounce wearing fur because of the cruelty to animals or because he looks utterly ridiculous? Sound off.

    One thought on “Pharrell Williams Pisses PETA Off With Head-To-Toe Fur Ensemble

    1. I THINK IT SHOWS COMPLETE LACK OF COMPASSION AND KNOWLEDGE. IN FACT, WHEN I SEE OTHER AFRICAN AMERICAN CELEBRITIES LIKE, BEYONCE AND RIHANNA WEARING FUR IT SHOCKS ME TO THE CORE. NOT LONG AGO PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DECENT WERE BEING TORTURED AND ABUSE LIKE THESE FELLOW FURRY EARTHLINGS ARE RIGHT NOW!!!
      SURELY IF YOUR ANCESTORS SUFFERED THIS KIND OF ABUSE YOU WOULD HAVE MORE COMPASSION FOR FELLOW SUFFERERS?? JUST BECAUSE ANIMALS CAN’T SPEAK ‘HUMAN’ DOESN’T MEAN THEY DON’T SUFFER AS WE DO.
      BY THESE POWERFUL CELEBRITIES WEARING FUR THEY ARE GUILTY OF ENCOURAGING THESE TERRIBLE ANIMAL CONCENTRATION CAMPS TO CONTINUE. THAT IS BA-A-A-D KARMA. WITH ALL THE POWER THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN THEY COULD BE ENCOURAGING HUMANITY TO BE KINDER AND MORE GENTLE. IT IS V DISHEARTENING.

      THESE ARE QUOTES FROM SOME NOBLE ‘CELEBRITIES’ PAST AND PRESENT RE ANIMAL RIGHTS.
      “The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
      ― Arthur Schopenhauer, The Basis of Morality

      I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.”
      ― Abraham Lincoln

      “The question is not, “Can they reason?” nor, “Can they talk?” but “Can they suffer?”
      ― Jeremy Bentham, The Principles of Morals and Legislation

      “The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.”
      ― Leonardo da Vinci

      “Human beings are a part of the animal kingdom, not apart from it. The separation of “us” and “them” creates a false picture and is responsible for much suffering. It is part of the in-group/out-group mentality that leads to human oppression of the weak by the strong as in ethic, religious, political, and social conflicts.”
      ― Marc Bekoff, Animals Matter: A Biologist Explains Why We Should Treat Animals with Compassion and Respect

      “Animals can communicate quite well. And they do. And generally speaking, they are ignored”
      ― Alice Walker

      “The day may come when the rest of animal creation may acquire those rights which never could have been withholden from them but by the hand of tyranny. The French have already discovered that the blackness of the skin is no reason why a human being should be abandoned without redress to the caprice of a tormentor. It may one day come to be recognized that the number of legs, the villosity of the skin, or the termination of the os sacrum are reasons equally insufficient for abandoning a sensitive being to the same fate. What else is it that should trace the insuperable line? Is it the faculty of reason, or perhaps the faculty of discourse? But a full-grown horse or dog is beyond comparison a more rational, as well as a more conversable animal, than an infant of a day or a week or even a month old. But suppose they were otherwise, what would it avail? The question is not, Can they reason? nor Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?”
      ― Jeremy Bentham, The Principles of Morals and Legislation

      Jonathan Safran Foer
      “It shouldn’t be the consumer’s responsibility to figure out what’s cruel and what’s kind, what’s environmentally destructive and what’s sustainable. Cruel and destructive food products should be illegal. We don’t need the option of buying children’s toys made with lead paint, or aerosols with chlorofluorocarbons, or medicines with unlabeled side effects. And we don’t need the option of buying factory-farmed animals.”

      Plutarch
      “A human body in no way resembles those that were born for ravenousness; it hath no hawk’s bill, no sharp talon, no roughness of teeth, no such strength of stomach or heat of digestion, as can be sufficient to convert or alter such heavy and fleshy fare. But if you will contend that you were born to an inclination to such food as you have now a mind to eat, do you then yourself kill what you would eat. But do it yourself, without the help of a chopping-knife, mallet or axe, as wolves, bears, and lions do, who kill and eat at once. Rend an ox with thy teeth, worry a hog with thy mouth, tear a lamb or a hare in pieces, and fall on and eat it alive as they do. But if thou had rather stay until what thou eat is to become dead, and if thou art loath to force a soul out of its body, why then dost thou against nature eat an animate thing? There is nobody that is willing to eat even a lifeless and a dead thing even as it is; so they boil it, and roast it, and alter it by fire and medicines, as it were, changing and quenching the slaughtered gore with thousands of sweet sauces, that the palate being thereby deceived may admit of such uncouth fare.”

      “To protest about bullfighting in Spain, the eating of dogs in South Korea, or the slaughter of baby seals in Canada, while continuing to eat eggs from hens who have spent their lives crammed into cages, or veal from calves who have been deprived of their mothers, their proper diet, and the freedom to lie down with their legs extended, is like denouncing apertheid in South Africa while asking your neighbors not to sell their houses to blacks.”

      “People care about animals. I believe that. They just don’t want to know or to pay. A fourth of all chickens have stress fractures. It’s wrong. They’re packed body to body, and can’t escape their waste, and never see the sun. Their nails grow around the bars of their cages. It’s wrong. They feel their slaughters. It’s wrong, and people know it’s wrong. They don’t have to be convinced. They just have to act differently. I’m not better than anyone, and I’m not trying to convince people to live by my standards of what’s right. I’m trying to convince them to live by their own.”

      “To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime.”

      “To be ‘for animals’ is not to be ‘against humanity.’ To require others to treat animals justly, as their rights require, is not to ask for anything more nor less in their case than in the case of any human to whom just treatment is due. The animal rights movement is a part of, not opposed to, the human rights movement. Attempts to dismiss it as anti human are mere rhetoric.”

      “Dominion does not mean domination. We hold dominion over animals only because of our powerful and ubiquitous intellect. Not because we are morally superior. Not because we have a “right” to exploit those who cannot defend themselves. Let us use our brain to move toward compassion and away from cruelty, to feel empathy rather than cold indifference, to feel animals’ pain in our hearts.”

      “I remember one bobcat they had in here – now bobcats are an endangered species in this neck of the woods – they’d caught it somewhere and they must have put that cat through a dozen rounds of burn experiments before they finally determined that it was utterly useless to them. Like an empty beer can. And then you know what they did to it? Claudius was late for a lunch date so rather thanput the destroyed but still breathing animal to sleep, he picked it up by its hind legs and simply smashed its head against a wall repeatedly until it was dead. How can I forget it: I was the one told to clean up the mess. The head dented in. The eyes slowly closing. The once proud claws hanging down, stunned and lifeless, the utter senselessness of it all, and the hate, a hatred that was consummated in me which is as dangerous a hormone, or chemical, or portion of the brain, as any neutron bomb. Except that I didnt know how to explode. I was like a computer without a keyboard, a bird without wings. Roaring inside. I wanted to kill that man. To do unto others what they had done unto me. I was that bobcat, you better believe it.”

      “Sure, some find gunning down unsuspecting, innocent animals to be a real hoot. I mean, for Christ sake, they mantle the decapitated, formaldehyde-stuffed heads on the wall. Then, of course, there are the people who enjoy putting sunglasses or hats on it, even putting a blowout in its mouth as if it were an avid party animal. If it had any hands, there would surely be a plastic cup full of cheap beer in it, as well. We can’t forget that it would be named some horrendous name, such as Bill or Frank, something so plain, ordinary, and down-right ridiculous that makes me want to bitch-slap the perpetrators. ”

      “it is a federal system of sadistic torture, vivisection, and animal genocide, which has been carried on for decades under the fraudulent guise of respectable medical research. And nobody on the outside knows, or wants to know, or is willing to find out. My parents, my friends, my teachers, wouldnt listen to me, or suggested that if it was bothering me that much I just had to quit the job. Just like that. As if that would have solved anything. As if I could ever live with such cowardice. You can’t imagine, or maybe you can, how many people are convinced – without knowing the first thing about it – Animal research is essential. Americans have been hopelessly brainwashed on this issue. The animal rights people, by and large, acknowledge the essential futility of trying to change the system. So they address the smaller issues, fighting for legislation which would provide one extra visit per week to the labs by a custodian of the US dept of agriculture. Or demanding that a squirrel monkey be given an extra 12 square inches in his holding pen, before being led to the slaughter. That sort of thing. For whomever, and whatever it’s worth, I hope my little write up is clear. I dont have the guts to do whats necessary. I pray there’s someone out there who does. God help all of us.”

      “I am a battery hen. I live in a cage so small I cannot stretch my wings. I am forced to stand night and day on a sloping wire mesh floor that painfully cuts into my feet. The cage walls tear my feathers, forming blood blisters that never heal. The air is so full of ammonia that my lungs hurt and my eyes burn and I think I am going blind. As soon as I was born, a man grabbed me and sheared off part of my beak with a hot iron, and my little brothers were thrown into trash bags as useless alive.

      My mind is alert and my body is sensitive and I should have been richly feathered. In nature or even a farmyard I would have had sociable, cleansing dust baths with my flock mates, a need so strong that I perform ‘vacuum’ dust bathing on the wire floor of my cage. Free, I would have ranged my ancestral jungles and fields with my mates, devouring plants, earthworms, and insects from sunrise to dusk. I would have exercised my body and expressed my nature, and I would have given, and received, pleasure as a whole being. I am only a year old, but I am already a ‘spent hen.’ Humans, I wish I were dead, and soon I will be dead. Look for pieces of my wounded flesh wherever chicken pies and soups are sold.”

      “Kinship with all creatures of the earth, sky, and water was a real and active principle. In the animal and bird world there existed a brotherly feeling that kept us safe among them… The animals had rights – the right of man’s protection, the right to live, the right to multiply, the right to freedom, and the right to man’s indebtedness. This concept of life and its relations filled us with the joy and mystery of living; it gave us reverence for all life; it made a place for all things in the scheme of existence with equal importance to all.”
      ― Chief Luther Standing Bear

      AND ON AND ON AND ON.

      IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP AND REALISE THAT BY MAKING AIMALS ‘LESS THAN’ WE WILL DESTROY OUR OWN SOULS.

      WITH LOVE, KATE
