Last week, Kanye’s new season of his fashion line debuted. Unfortunately, the Yeezy Season 5 collection has several fur coats and other fur trimmed accessories.
Sia turned to Twitter to rebuke the rapper for his use of fur. “Dear @kanyewest,” she wrote. “Would you consider going fur free? This is the reality of fur for fashion – it’s so sad.” Along with the tweet, she linked to a video on YouTube titled “Under the Fur Coats: Rabbits’ Screams of Death.” The video is incredibly graphic and shows what happens to rabbits who are skinned for fur.
PETA joined Sia in the criticism. The animal rights organization tweeted, “@Sia Agreed, the reality of the fur industry is so heartbreaking @kanyewest Please go #furfree.”
Kanye hasn’t responded, however Vogue has apparently verified that at least one of the items was fake fur.
