SHOCKING: Miranda Lambert's Shameless Fur Promotion
Miranda Lambert has come under fire from animal rights supporters for showing off two fur coats she received as gifts for Christmas.
The singer took to Instagram on Saturday 26 December to share a snap of herself modelling one of two family heirlooms she had been given by her grandmother for the holidays.
"'I'm so fancy... You already know," she captioned the image, quoting lyrics from Iggy Azalea's Fancy hit. "My Nonny gave me two of her fur coats! I definitely know where I got my love for diamonds and fur.”
The posts didn't sit well with many of her followers, who took aim at Miranda and expressed their disappointment at the star for her apparent love of animal fur.
The social media pictures have also been condemned by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. "We had higher hopes. Since Miranda rescues dogs, we always thought she could see that whether fur comes from a mink, fox, a dog or cat in China, the source is always a gentle animal who did not want to die."
Ironically, Miranda co-founded the MuttNation Foundation with her mother Beverly in an effort to "end animal cruelty, neglect and homelessness", while the charity also provides support for animal shelters.
