Kate Middleton has been caught up in the middle of a fight between PETA and the International Fur Trade Federation (IFTF).
The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted wearing a fur-lined jacket one day and the IFTF described it as "a classy fur-lined coat."
The IFTF likes to post pictures of celebs wearing fur garments.
But PETA saw that post and is now demanding the IFTF take it down.
PETA checked with the Duchess's reps and the coat has a fake fur lining.
They wrote in a letter to the IFTF website:
"Her Royal Highness was not wearing fur. The coat was not lined with fur.
We therefore insist that you remove the photo from your social media page and issue an immediate public retraction of your claim.
To state that the Duchess is wearing fur is not only false but offensive…to portray the new Duchess wearing something so blatantly cruel and contrary to her country's values is insulting."
PETA has threatened legal action against the IFTF but hasn't heard back from them yet.
Let's hope they get that photo taken down before they wrongfully smear Kate any more.
