The comedian’s protest has riled many feathers across Hollywood.
“We love you, Tiffany, and as an animal rights organization, we advocate for and believe in kindness towards all, including animals,” PETA said in a statement. “We hope that you choose to protest in a different way that doesn’t harm any humans or any animals, but is kind to all <3.”
At the end of 2018, Haddish, 39, took to Instagram to show off her new fur jacket that was gifted by a fan. She announced plans to continue to wear fur until police brutality against black Americans come to an end.
“I’mma wear fur every day until they stop killing black people. When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur,” Haddish shared in a video. “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 … Because people are important, and so are the animals.”
Russell Simmons begged the “Girls Trip” star to reconsider her approach saying in part, “White supremacy is a disease that takes on many forms and has many symptoms. The abuse of other beings will not address that … or heal ourselves. I love you Tiffany but I wish you would reconsider this route of protest.”
It’s unclear what Haddish plans to do next in regards to her protest. She has not been spotted wearing more fur since.
