PETA upset with Janet’s BlackGlama campaign

July 17th, 2010 - 5:32 pm ICT by IANS  

London, July 17 (IANS) Singer-actress Janet Jackson, who has recently been signed as the new face of BlackGlama - a fur firm, has been targeted by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
“It’s amazing what celebrities will do when their careers are on a downslide, but we didn’t think that Janet was this desperate,” quoted PETA spokesperson Amanda Schinke as saying.

“Surely she knows enough about suffering and unjustified death to recognise that both occur in the production of a fur coat. We are asking her to think again and to donate these stolen skins to be used as bedding for animals orphaned by other human-caused disasters, such as loss of habitat,” Schinke added.

On Thursday, she was announced as the spokes-model of the brand and the face of the brand’s initiative - “What Becomes a Legend Most?”.

According to reports, Janet Jackson would model high-quality mink coats for the company.
