Kelis Vs. PETA: Round Two!

| Filed under: Kelis

wenn1026283kelis.jpg

PETA is calling bullshiz on Kelis!

The singer posted a lengthy entry on her MySpace blog the other day, claiming the organization sent her a nasty-gram for wearing fur, but PETA says it isn't true!

We've gotten a hold of the letter PETA sent to Kelis, and, well… just see for yourself!

Dear Kelis,

I hope that this finds you well. I'm writing today because we've been inundated with phone calls and e-mails from folks alerting us to photos of you wearing a fur hat and coat while out in London over the weekend.

Please know that animals killed for their fur endure immense suffering. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, strangled, genitally electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their pelts. We hope that you'll take a moment to watch an undercover exposé of fur farms, hosted by Eva Mendes, at http://www.peta.org/FeatureEvaMendes.asp.

If you enjoy the look of fur, renowned designers, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, and Vivienne Westwood, couple fashion with compassion and use only faux fur in their lines. We hope you found this information helpful and will join countless celebrities, like Charlize Theron, Khloe Kardashian, Nia Long, Kid Sister, Pink, and Michelle Obama, in publicly swearing off fur.

Warm regards,
PETA

Innnnnnnteresting!

Whose side are U on???

  1. 1

    PETA's just a bunch of losers having too much time on their hands.



  2. 2

    I am for the animals on this! Indifference and ignorance only perpetuates the cruelty. If your cold, wear some long johns.



  3. 3

    Peta is full of lying assholes. They care about animals way more then humans. Kelis all the way



  4. 4

    Dayummm….now she'll feel like an idiot about being so defensive. Can't wait for what she's got for round 3! haha



  5. 5

    Team PETA!



  6. 6

    PETA
    kills more
    animals
    than they save.



  7. 7

    Kelis is selfish. Is wearing small tortured animals so important to her that she is willing to alienate a good portion of her fan base?



  8. 8

    PETA Ftw!!

    I may not be a vegetarian… but there's no way in hell I'd EVER wear real fur!! There's no need for it!



  9. 9

    TEAM PETA!! The letter was absolutely classy and not "nasty" at all.



  10. 10

    ANIMALS FOREVER! :D



  11. 11

    forget about the fur clothing, i'm more concerned for whatever animal died on her head.



  12. 12

    quite frankly if she wants to wear fur let her, if there was an organisation that went against everything that everyone didnt like we wouldnt be able to do anything. i hope peta make a big deal over peole wearing uggs and leather, if they dont its totally hypocritical.
    .
    and lets not forget that peta kills animals! lol



  13. 13

    That dumb, ugly bitch Kelis should have stayed in school instead of allowing herself to become an ignorant ghetto dumbass worthy of mass-ridicule. Would someone please dump a bucket of red paint on her, preferably over her head?



  14. 14

    Peta. How is that letter nasty? it's informative! Surely Kelis failed reading comprehension in school. Someone with a grade 4 Education would not be able to comprehend a well written letter like that.
    She should join efforts with PETA instead of trying to look white.



  15. 15

    PETA!!!



  16. 16

    she only come out in a fights



  17. 17

    PETA, hell yeah!



  18. 18

    PETA gave her a classy response, Kelis is a no good, skanky hood rat, this will go over her stupid ass head. Fuck you Kelis, you has been!



  19. 19

    Team PETA



  20. 20

    I'm not really down with PETA, but I think we all have to agree that no animals need to die so people can look glamorous. Unless you are living off the land in Alaska or something it is not necessary.



  21. 21

    i love animals and everything, but in all honesty, there is NOTHING like the feel of real fur. PETA needs to stfu and focus on real things, and not on celebs who are wearing, as Kelis said, "rodents".



  22. 22

    Please remember that this isn't necessarily the only letter she received. Also, we don't know the story behind the fur's origin–maybe the specific company is as humane as one can be in such an industry. It's a tough debate, but there are plenty other dangers to animals aside from fur clothing that Peta fails to see the big picture for. Even if Kelis stopped wearing fur, how much of an impact would it make as opposed to say, funding a project to keep plastic out of the oceans? "Plastic Oceans" is significantly more brutal and common and is caused by overconsumption of and disregard for plastic and its waste. Peta is wasting its time fighting the fur trade.



  23. 23

    Very nice response by PETA. I hope it will cause Kelis to have second thoughts about killing animals for their fur. Eating meat in moderation is all right, maiming and killing animals to indulge your ego is not.



  24. 24

    I KNOW U HATE CAPITAL TEXT, SO DO I NORMALLY BUT RIGHT NOW I DON'T CARE! HOW COULD ANY ONE BE ON THE SIDE OF THIS MURDERING SADISTIC BITCH…FUR FOR FASHION IS WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!!



  25. 25

    PETA FTW!!



  26. 26

    wearing fur is wrong!! you suck kelis!



  27. 27

    KELIS FOR THE MOTHER FUCKING WIN!!!! Do not give in to those bullies at PETA they trying to be nice now that the see she " AINT NO PUNK" let people make their own choices when it comes to clothing What is right for charlize isn't necessarily right for me



  28. 28

    KELIS IS AN UGLY ONE HIT "WONDER". LETS SKIN HER ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUCK U KELIS go back to the ghetto where you belong!



  29. 29

    PETA's side OF COURSE! Kelis is a dumb bitch



  30. 30

    Obviosly on PETA's side!



  31. 31

    why dont they just let her be? she doesnt represent all the women that still wear fur? its a brutal process tho….but obviously she wants to wear fur. leave her alone



  32. 32

    bitch needs to learn what it really means to be "nasty".
    they are just trying to inform.



  33. 33

    This chick makes me sick! She is ignorant and a fool.



  34. 34

    peta. i now delete all of my kelis music. i dont want to listen to her anymore. she is a liar and a murderer.



  35. 35

    Team PETA! She's a horrible person to hurt and torture animals for fashion sake. Most of the celebs who are against wearing fur are notable in Hollywood and around the world. She's a nobody for a reason.



  36. 36

    Peta is a bunch of liars. They invent most of what they say to feed people false information and keep them in ignorance.



  37. 37

    On this one - HANDS DOWN PETA. If people that wear fur saw a video or two about what the animals go through, I really believe they would not wear fur. Otherwise the would be without compassion!



  38. 38

    both sides are morons.
    peta does more damage then good - no one takes them seriously
    kelis..well…we see where that child support is goin..Nas needs to step in fast.



  39. 39

    team PETA! that letter sounds 10 times more intelligent then anything coming from kelis's mouth. way to lose a lot of fans



  40. 40

    Fur should be illegal.



  41. 41

    People are way too hard on PETA, they're just trying to protect animals since most humans don't give a second thought to the suffering that goes into things they use every day. They're tactics may be a bit extravagant sometimes, but in this case I definitely think Kelis is just being defensive about how she chooses to add to cruelty.



  42. 42

    TEAM PEOPLE, i'd rather wear fur than go naked.

    Peta mean that many advances in medical research that should have happened, haven't.



  43. 43

    PETA ALL THE WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!



  44. 44

    I don't like fur but FUCK YOU PETA. You want women as your allies in fighting animal cruelty? Then maybe don't use routine humilation and sexualization of women in all of your fucking stupid shock-stunts.

    Warm regards, now fuck off.



  45. 45

    "…if you don't we'll throw red paint on your ass!"



  46. 46

    I'm still on Kelis' side… PETA is usually extremely pushy from what I've seen. I'm calling bull-shit on PETA.



  47. 47

    kelis is lame. fur is ugly anyway so what is the point in killing animals.



  48. 48

    unlike Ms. Kellis, Petas letter was very classy. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I eat meat, not a lot of meat but I do. Sometimes i get disgusted when I am eating it…thinking this poor animal..I watched the Ellen show and that guy was on there……talking about how nasty and brutal the "farms" are that produce our food. It makes me sick. I need to give up meat all together. eww.. Its so cruel what they do to these animals. But i guess I have no room to talk unless I cut out meat 100%…but i think that people are going to eat meat regardless so what we need to focus on is the nasty farms and the chemicals they inject in the animal and find better ways to go about it. ehhh….so thats my input



  49. 49

    as much as i hate peta for how out there they are, they are entirely right with this and i agree with their letter. kelis can fuck off



  50. 50

    I say STFU peta, this is America we can wear whatever we want and it's none of anyone's business



  51. 51

    Neither. One of them happens to be irrelevant, the other, a terrorist group.

  52. mnm31 says – reply to this


    52

    I'm with the poor little animals! PETA might not be great, but anyone who wears real fur should be made into a coat themselves. Kelis is disgusting, and what is sadder than her lack of a career is the pain and suffering of the innocent animals that she now wears. PETA's letter was classy - why is she so defensive?



  53. 53

    Who the hell would be on Kelis' side???!



  54. 54

    Shouldn't they go after the people that are using such horrific ways to skin the animals and not the consumer?



  55. 55

    ridiculous, given the suffering of pigs and cows on industrial farms in this country. Fur is one thing (I don't wear it) but if you love burgers and ham, you're supporting completely heinous treatment of sentient animals (particularly pigs; you might as well eat your labrador retriever, which is less "intelligent" than that nice white pork you are snarfing down). For millennia hominids used animals for food/warmth/clothing; and now it's civilized to eat meat but not wear fur? ridiculous.



  56. 56

    You go, Kellis. You speak your mind and don't let anybody bullying you into their way of thinking! Now, I'm gonna go eat me a steak!



  57. 57

    kudos on the diplomatic response. go peta!



  58. 58

    This letter wasn't nasty at all. Kelis overreacted and made herself look like a bitch. I don't think wearing dead tortured animals is particularly classy in the first place, but her obnoxious response to this very tame letter made her seem even more classless.



  59. 59

    I'd like to address the issue about PeTa killing more animals than they save. Yes, they do believe in humane euthanization-this alternative is better than leaving animals to fend for themselves while homeless. AND if you consider all of the animals they save through their advertising campaigns, I'd say they save many more than are euthanized.

    Also, you may say that PeTA cares more about animals than people, but if PeTA and other caring people don't stand up for the torture of animals, who will?

    I think Kelis' reaction to this email just demonstrates her immaturity, lack of self awareness, and her lack of tact.

    Too bad there are so many blanket comments saying that ALL members of PeTa are liars, loser, etc. You'd be calling certain celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Sean Kingston, Eva Mendes, and more the same thing.

  60. BD4ME says – reply to this


    60

    All they're asking is if she'll lay off the fur - to help reduce animal abuse. And the be-otch doesn't even give a rats ass - someone should skin her alive, see if she'll like it. I don't always agree with PETA - but she is definitely a class A retard for saying stuff like that. Her arguments didn't even make sense.



  61. 61

    LEts see what side I'm on? how bout the ANIMAL SIDE>



  62. 62

    Regardless of the merits of their arguments, I find it impossible to support an organization led but a complete nut case who, upon her death, wants her skin to be turned into a handbag and the rest of her body quartered and sent to the four corners of the earth for various vulgar exhibitions. They're just fanatics who meant well but lost their way.



  63. 63

    Grr, can't see any comments.



  64. 64

    fuckkkk PETA



  65. 65

    I'M ON PETA'S SIDE!!!! what they do to those animals are so mean and i think every one who does mean things to animals should be put there the same thing!!



  66. 66

    Re: Loewenstein – wtf? do u have ANY IDEA what they do to animals? its horrifiing



  67. 67

    Kelis All the Way !



  68. 68

    Kelis Re: archimmes – So Ture! And Mary J too!



  69. 69

    I dont think its okay to wear fur but PETA is misguided and need to stop harassing people. Just because u like animals doesnt mean u have to side with pyschopaths with red paint who impose hate on others. She shouldnt be harassed, its not like shes not going to stop wearing it, PETA just wants to be an asshole

  70. Claja says – reply to this


    70

    Don't back down Kelis, you've already given them your answer which was "No, I like fur", now tell them to mind their own beezwax



  71. 71

    Im dont agree with either. Animals should not be killed for fashion! PETA is too extreme.



  72. 72

    I would never wear fur, i would never have an abortion but I respect
    somebody's decision to live their life according to their own terms.



  73. 73

    LOL….Kelis or PETA….who cares about either!



  74. 74

    Re: LaDonna Faye – you can buy your meat from a local butcher. go to a freakin organic farm with free range animals. and not only will you get better meat, they don't torture their animals. and you are also helping out local business. think about it. there are alternatives you just have to find them.



  75. 75

    As much as I hate PETA, I got to admit that this letter is not nasty at all. Which is a shock considering the letter they sent to Michael Moore a few years ago.



  76. 76

    PETA! PETA! PETA! PETA!



  77. 77

    I don't see anything wrong with eating meat since humans are meant to be omnivours, but in this day and age there is no reason to wear fur to keep warm since we have so many other brillant and equally warm susbtitutes. Only very stupid or very evil people would see no problem in wearing real fur.



  78. 78

    Peta's letter is dignified and completely justified. Kelis is simply ignorant with no consideration for any other being other than her 'celebrity' self. This letter was wasted on such a horrible woman. Lets just hope for her sake that she doesn't come back as a chipmunk in the next life…!



  79. 79

    PETA!!!!!



  80. 80

    Re: QuinneVengeance – how is the needless torment of living creatures not a "real thing"? Even if they are "rodents", thier still alive and feel pain. An animal being tortured feels just as much agony as someone being crushed under a building after the haiti earthquake. Fucker.



  81. 81

    Not nasty. I disagree with PETA a lot but the letter is perfectly polite. And wearing animal fur is disgusting.



  82. 82

    Re: contrarianchick

    Yours was the only intelligent post on the page.



  83. 83

    Who in the fuck do Peta think they are? Humans have been wearing animal skins and fur for the entire history of civilization…we used to do it out of nessecity, now we do it for fashion.
    Deal with it.
    Why any group thinks they have the right to impose their views on another, is beyond me.
    The next time peta decides to become militant and pull their tantrums, throwing red paint and screaming at private citizens, I wish that some lucky rich bitch in a full lenth mink would smack that hippie loser across the face with a skined otter…that might teach them some boundaries…



  84. 84

    I dont like peta but wearing fur is stupid, how can you buy something that is made from dead animals that had no guilt in this, does she know how much animals had to be killed for her clothes
    wearing fur should be ilegal

  85. Manay says – reply to this


    85

    Re: kathie!
    how is she trying to look white?



  86. 86

    PETA all the way, kellis is a nobody that just wants to be back on the spotlight anyways she can, shes a looser arrogant bitch.



  87. 87

    F*** PETA! Enough said!!



  88. 88

    PETA's retarded. they don't really care about animals, they're just a bunch of famewhoring dumbasses. they don't care that she's wearing fur, they care that their name is out there, it's all those nutjobs want.

    i think that if they have such a problem with using animals for food, clothing, research, etc, they should volunteer themselves to take the place of say those poor little bunnies (raised specifically for those purposes and treated as humanely as possible)



  89. 89

    Team Kelis.
    Even though I don't agree with the way fur is made. The feeling of real fur is completely different then faux-fur. Kelis stated in her response that she likes the glorious FEELING of it, so I don't know why PETA is saying: "if you like the LOOK of fur…." PETA isn't all innocent either and I don't like the way they name-drop that much. As if Kelis swears fur off because Khloe Kardashian and Kid Sister (who?) don't wear it.



  90. 90

    Team PETA!!! Kelis is an idiot who doesn't no shit about anything, her musicsucks! she sucks!



  91. 91

    You are all a but of retards if you think kelis is right. Go PETA!!! How can kelis pay for real fur does she still even have a record deal!?



  92. 92

    TEAM PETA !!! because i actually have some compassion for animals unlike most ppl fur is disgusting idc how good it feels. It's like saying you'd wear your dogs skin and fur if it felt amazing.

  93. Nikon says – reply to this


    93

    I must side with PETA. I thought their letter was very tasteful considering the vulgarity of Kelis and her statement.

    Why wear fur (i.e. torture selfless and innocent animals) when you don't have to?



  94. 94

    PeTA are hypocrite, terrorist supporting organisation who spend more money on releasing arsonists than helping animals, but a brain dead 'celeb' (perez is not a celeb) only care about the check you get for supporting and 'caring'.

    I WILL never support a group that is against all human, animal contact, including assistance dogs, or the cure for aids or cancer coming via animal testing. And PEREZ as a dog owner shouldn’t either because PETA don’t want us to have pets. Ingrid makes me sick, she is against animal testing but as a diabetic, inject insulin…

    But yet again, celebs don't have a frikkinn clue.

    ***Good to get it of my chest and this isn't all opinion, IT'S FACT.



  95. 95

    Re: petey plastic

    exactly!! caring for animals is all well and good but there's a limit! the limit is when u start to care more about animals than u do about ppl and peta crossed that line a looong time ago



  96. 96

    FORGET
    PETA
    JUST
    DON"T
    WEAR
    FUR!!!
    DO
    NOT
    LET
    ANIMALS
    SUFFER!!!



  97. 97

    When I went to a high end store and saw a fur jacket I couldn't help to touch it and it was so soft but I thought about the animal who died for it so I looked away. Its one of those things where you're split in two but I don't see myself ever buying anything fur related.



  98. 98

    PETA can be a bit extreme but I'm definitely on their side. Fur is murder. Only ugly bitches think they look pretty wearing dead animals.



  99. 99

    fucking fur hag
    burn in hell



  100. 100

    THE HOMO behind her scares me. And I'm gay.
