PETA slams Beyonce for what she wore at her performance for the Super Bowl Halftime Show. On Feb. 6, 2013, Star Pulse reported that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) expressed their displeasure at the 31-year-old singer's black bodysuit, designed by Rubin Singer, made out of python, iguana and leather. "We would take a bet that if Beyonce watched our video exposes, she'd probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully. Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyonce's Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score," said a PETA spokesperson.
Although there are stars who support PETA, such as Alicia Silverstone and Pamela Anderson, it's a routine for PETA to bash celebrities who wear clothing made out of fur, leather, wool, exotic skins, silk and more or to disapprove of anything they deem to be an abuse of an animal. For example, Lady Gaga got hit for wearing a dress made out of meat. Selena Gomez was criticized for showing pink-tinted horses in the video for her song "Love You Like a Love Song."
However, PETA itself has received complaints. For example, Betty White, who has worked with the organization, said in June 2009, "They not only give misinformation but disinformation . . . They won’t listen, and it infuriates me. I’m sure they love animals but they should find out the facts."
