Gap and Zara Ban Angora Fur Following Outcry Over Cruelty to Bunnies

Following mounting pressure from EVERY HUMAN WITH A CONSCIENCE, Gap and Zara have joined several other retailers in (temporarily) banning products made with angora fur.

Uh-Oh, Katy Perry Is in Trouble with PETA Over ‘Roar’ Video

It’s probably best not to take PETA’s outrage too, too seriously (I mean, it’s not like they’re going to throw paint all over your decadent fur coat or anything), but a spokeswoman for the animal rights organization has criticized Katy Perry for exploiting exotic animals in her new video for the single “Roar.” » 9/15/13 4:30pm 9/15/13 4:30pm

PETA Loons: Eating Chicken Wings Will Give Your Baby a Small Penis

Animals Strut Down the Runway in Human Body Parts

At least, this is what appears to be happening. Some of the outfits are made of body parts, some are made of... ???.
