This shouldn't come as a surprise, but PETA's not a fan of Victoria Beckham's new line of crocodile and lizard skin handbags.
In fact, they're so angry the animal rights group is threatening to pour lizard's blood on her!
A source in on the icky stunt reveals:
"PETA have been on Victoria's back for weeks, sending email after email, and even publicly Tweeting her, posting things like, 'Skins are never posh, Posh'…PETA knows she is highprofile and that whatever stunt they pull will garner mass publicity. The fact her bags were so well received at her recent showcase in New York has simply given them more incentive.
One of the ideas being mooted is that Victoria gets covered in a bucket of animal blood - cow or lizard - at her next UK public appearance. Another rather sick suggestion was to pelt crocodile feet at her when she goes to an editors' lunch in London next month. Victoria tries not to surround herself with bodyguards but her security has had to be increased."
Of course both the blood and reptile feet would be fake, but still sounds gross.
A rep for Posh has already fired back at PETA, telling them they're entitled to their own opinion. BUT they add:
"The handbags are made to the highest quality and design. These skins sit strictly within the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) regulations, and are monitored at every step of production. The skins are farmed in America under very tight guidelines."
We still think it would be a good idea for Victoria to have extra security and maybe wear something she's not so attached to, just in case.
