Elizabeth Hurley Blasted By PETA Over Fur Ads
The Austin Powers star has long been targeted by animal lovers for her penchant for fashionable furs, but her new advertisements for Blackglama have caused an uproar - prompting a spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to publicly lambaste the English beauty.
Representative for PETA Europe, Robbie LeBlanc, says, "It's shocking that she's taking money to wear baby minks, who are skinned at six months old for Liz's luxuries.
"Her wardrobe is now as dead as her film career. Millions of animals are electrocuted and skinned alive, suffering terribly for the production of fur. With so many fantastic faux furs available there is no excuse for the wearing of real fur."
The sexy adverts, part of Blackglama's What becomes a legend most? campaign, feature a topless Hurley, with her modesty preserved only by the luxury furs.
