Celebrities who've been slammed for wearing fur
The animal-clad stars who've provoked the most outrage
The use of fur is one of the most heavily debated topics in the fashion industry. Those against it argue that using animals to make clothes for humans is cruel and barbaric under any circumstances. Those for it argue that humans have always made use of animals for their own benefit and that provided the animals are treated properly and their welfare is paramount, there is really no problem with using their skins to make clothes.
The debate is very public, and many celebrities have taken a side. But those who choose to flaunt fur often find themselves coming under heavy fire from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and other animal rights activists.
The latest? Jessica Simpson, who has been criticized for wearing fur as she promotes her new memoir. What's more, animal rights activists actually crashed one of her speaking events. Now she's started wearing faux fur, but the move has certainly not earned her any new friends.
