• Tiffany Haddish to PETA: I’ll stop wearing fur when cops stop killing black people

    Tiffany Haddish is wearing fur until cops stop killing unarmed black men, and she doesn’t care what PETA has to say about it. In a recent Instagram video post, the Nobody’s Fool actress described that after a show at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles, a fan gave her the fur jacket that she is wearing in the video. She then describes what would usually be an outlandish gifting experience by saying, “Now she wasn’t planning on it, but she said she loved me and I was like, ‘If you really love me, let me have your jacket.’ And she did. So thank you so much boo.”

    After telling her 4 million-plus Instagram followers about the gift, she goes on about how the fur coat will fit into her new protest. Haddish says in the post, “I’ma wear it as much as possible because I don’t know if you guys know this about me but I’m about to start protesting… I’ma wear fur every day until they stop killing black people,” she went on to say. “When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest.‘ So sorry, PETA! Don’t be mad at me! Be mad at the police. When they stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur.”

    She ended the video saying, “See how that go? ‘Cos people are important. And so are the animals. To keep me warm. Thank you, boo. I love you for loving me. This lil raccoon is so cute. I look good in this raccoon.”

    PETA is one of largest animal rights organizations in America and has been known for calling on celebrities to help them further their message against aminal cruelty from veganism to not wearing fur. Comedians such as Bill Maher, Jane Lynch, Carol Leifer, Jeffrey Ross, Marc Maron, and Fred Willard have all helped raise money for the organization.
