Shirley Manson Joins PETA Anti-Fur Campaign

Garbage singer Shirley Manson is the latest star to front an anti-fur coat campaign for People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA). The Scottish star is pictured in a new advertising campaign, which is designed to shock and is launched today.

On one poster, Manson is pictured wearing a Stella McCartney dress, while holding a skinned fox next to the words ‘Here’s The Rest of Your Fur Coat’.

Manson says, «I believe very strongly in the ethical treatment of animals. A lot of my fans are very pro-animal rights and have often, when I have been wearing fake fur, said, ‘Is that real?’ and really gotten upset, and I have had to reassure them,0 ‘No, it’s cool, it’s fake, don’t worry.’ They have made me very conscious of it, and I am really grateful that they have made me pay attention.»
