Fashionista Victoria Beckham has been slammed by PETA for endorsing a fashion chain which uses crocodile skin in its products.
The singer-turned-designer is regularly seen with a Hermes handbag on her arm,but officials at PETA are now asking her to give up the luxury brand because they frequently use animal skin,Contactmusic reported.
“We will send Victoria Beckham,a compassionate person who won’t wear fur,our undercover footage that shows how alligators and crocodiles are beaten to death and how snakes are nailed to trees and skinned alive for these products,” a PETA spokesperson said.
“The mere thought of purposefully breeding and killing crocodiles for an outdated,overpriced handbag should make any fashionista’s skin crawl,” the spokesperson added.
