As Donna Karen prepared for Saturday's fashion show, protestors stood outside her Manhattan office playing the audio of screaming bunnies as they're tortured for vanity.
For someone so sophisticated, we are absolutely appalled to learn about her allowance of the unnecessary deaths of countless rabbits.
PETA reveals to us they hope she’ll join compassionate designers like Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, and Vivienne Westwood. These classy designers have pledged not to contribute to heinous animal suffering by ditching fur once and for all.
Donna Karan, rid the reasoning behind your nicknames (Uncarin' Karan, Cruella DeKaran, etc.), and realize what you're letting happen so you can stop it.
There is no need for the killing of animals in fashion. Plenty of respectable fashionistas proudly adorn themselves in faux fur. As for those who refuse anything but real fur, well, that sure does say a lot about them, doesn't it?
Leisure should *never* be an excuse for murder. Never.
If you would like Donna Karan to know you disagree with her company's practices, let her know.
