If you didn’t know, earlier this week Tiffany Haddish announced that she’ll be protesting police brutality against Black people by wearing fur everyday.
She said in a video posted to her personal Instagram page “I’mma wear fur every day until they stop killing black people. When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest. So sorry, PETA! Don’t be mad at me. Be mad at the police. When they stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur … Because people are important, and so are the animals.”
PETA has now issued a statement towards the comedian’s decision. The animal rights organization says they hope she reconsider her protest without it harming both humans and animals. “We love you, Tiffany, and as an animal rights organization, we advocate for and believe in kindness towards all, including animals. We hope that you choose to protest in a different way that doesn’t harm any humans or any animals, but is kind to all.”
Haddish has yet to comment back to the org.
