Peta Blast Beyonce Over 'crocodile, Anacoda And Ostrich' Trainers
Animal rights campaigners PETA kept Beyonce under their radar since her controversial Super Bowl 'Python' outfit and have now attacked her for buying trainers made from 'exotic animals'. PETA called out the superstar for purchasing the "high priced" shoes customised by footwear designers PMK, which are said to contain crocodile, anaconda, string ray and ostrich skin, on claims that the animals were likely to have been "beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed"…
In a statement to The Telegraph they said: "These custom-made kicks come with a high price and it's paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed.
"Although most people aren't as familiar with the types of animals (snakes, stingrays, crocodiles, and ostriches) killed for this single pair of sneakers as they are with the cats and dogs we share our homes with, these animals are highly sensitive living beings who try hard to avoid capture and suffer enormously when trapped, netted, speared, and skinned alive."
Beyonce's alleged purchase was announced on PMK's website who said that they were "summoned" by the singer to create the custom kicks.
The news comes after analysts said tickets to see the superstar headline V Festival could sell-out in just "20 minutes" when they go on sale tomorrow morning (March 1).
