PETA Criticize Rihanna Over Her 'Creepy' Snakeskin Boots


Rihanna has been branded "creepy" and a
"freak" by animal rights campaigners after
she took to the streets of London on
Thursday wearing a pair of snakeskin
boots.

The We Found Love hit-maker, who is on a
promotional visit to the U.K., was
photographed outside the Rose nightclub in
central London sporting a pair of thigh-high
black-and-white boots apparently made
from reptile hide.

However, her fashion choice has angered
officials at People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals (PETA), who have spoken out to
brand Rihanna's footwear "callous".

In a reference to the singer's recent tearful
appearance on Oprah Winfrey's talk show,
during which she wept as she recalled her
doomed romance with R&B star Chris
Brown, a PETA spokesman says, "Rihanna
may not have a clue that snakes killed for
boots are often nailed to a tree and skinned
alive. Of course, they can't go on Oprah to
cry about it."

"Wearing reptile skin is creepy and callous,
and it makes her look even more out of
touch. She and Lady Gaga seem so
desperate to be freaks instead of
recognized for their talents that you have to
wonder if they realize that they are being
laughed at."
