Lady Gaga strikes back at PETA! “Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry”
Written by Russ Francis+
Is Lady Gaga using underprivileged children to counterbalance the negative fur press she’s been slapped with lately — thanks to the animal rights org PETA?
Gaga FINALLY responds to the open letter Senior Vice President, Dan Mathews issued on Monday, which in part had said: “What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat? As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.”
The “fall campaigns” he is referring to are said to involve “flour bombing” the worst fur offenders at public events…when they least expect it (Kim Kardashian can tell you all about it).
For a woman who’s worn everything from—unicorn hooves to raw meat—being sprinkled with a little white powder must not have seemed so bad (or unusual for Hollywood) — Gaga was slow to respond; other than to tweet a sarcastic comment: “To those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer Hermes.” PETA did not appreciate that.
But, Gaga was apparently just stalling so she could think up a way to get her out of this mess. She did come up with a clever comeback — she used PETA’s notoriously AGGRESSIVE strategies against them:
“To the fans,” Gaga wrote in a blog post on her website. “I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life … I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. ‘Animal Rights.’”
“I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially [since] I have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat,” Gaga asserts. “I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.”
As for PETA’s habit of ‘flour bombing’ consistent fur offenders, Gaga throws a ‘smoke bomb:’
“And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry.”
Is Gaga using children to gain sympathy?
Even is she is, this flour bombing business has got to STOP! Especially, since it’s an election year! Mitt Romney has already been ‘glitter bombed.’ We could see this quickly escalating and turning into an all out food fight/arts and crafts war! Or worse…
Check these out too!
