Exclusive: PETA Reacts To Pharrell’s Moncler Fur Coat, Wants To Send Him Anti-Fur Video

Published

Pharrell Williams made quite a fashion statement on Thursday night when he arrived to the opening of the new Moncler store in Paris in head-to-toe fur.

Williams, who recently teamed up with the high end fashion line to create his own line of sunglasses, arrived to the launch wearing a large, fur headpiece and coat from the designer’s winter collection.

Pharrell is known for his dapper, sleek, fashion style, but Thursday’s ensemble raised several eyebrows, including PETA, the world’s biggest animal rights organization.

“If Pharrell knew that animals on fur farms—including dogs and cats—are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their fur, we’re sure that he’d join the growing number of celebrities and top designers who stick to faux fur and pleather,” PETA exclusively told HipHollywood.

“The fashion world is moving in the direction of cruelty-free chic—a classy look that Pharrell sports better than anyone,” PETA stated.

“We’re contacting him, sending him this video narrated by Stella McCartney, and hoping he joins Russell Simmons, among other fashion icons, in saying “no” to fur forever,” the organization added.

    I hope Pharrell stops wearing fur altogether. It’s not a good look. If he knew what happened on fur farms, he would give it up.

    You know what PETA, I bet on any given day you could walk into your headquarters and find half of your people wearing leather shoes or boots, that also comes from live animals, also some of your handbags, you might not eat it but you people sure as hell wear it, so until all of you, and your spoke people stop wearing leather of any kind, and that also includes skins, then I’ll listen to YOU!

      You’re ignorant or just dumb. Maybe both. Good luck to you though.

    All he has to do is see all those poor dogs crammed into lorries in china to be taken to horrifically skinned alive as it’s easier to get coat off , it’s a disgrace , avoid moncler jackets … Say no to fur I thought people were stating to wize up obviously not

    I wonder how he would feel if he was told he was going to be skinned alive,
    Its just pure arrogance to wear something like that in this day must of wanted a reaction.
    What a sick attention seeker!

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
