'Pinocchio' Armani Protested by PETA Activists in Milan

Armani

Senior VP of PETA Dan Matthews and other PETA activists targeted Giorgio Armani in front of his Milan Emporio Armani boutique on Tuesday by holding up posters of Armani as Pinocchio, claiming that the designer had broken a promise not to use fur in his collections.

The Giorgio Armani group responded with a statement, ANSA reports: "The fashion group clarified that it had 'decided to stop making products with animal fur, except for rabbit fur which derives from animals already destined as a food source'. Armani group also criticised Peta activists for exploiting the fame of the company name in a bid to attract public attention. 'The use of fur in the house's collection has always been extremely limited, in contrast to what happens at other fashion houses that make fur their core business,' the group said."

  2. He uses furs, Roberta has many furs, he even has fur throws all over him homes. He also like to sleep naked under those throws. I know that for a fact.

  3. Haha! Last time I saw Dan at the bar he was wearing a "Canadian tuxedo". That should be just as much of an outrage. ;p

  6. If fur was good enough for the cavemen, it's good enough for me. Give me mink, sable, etc. It's warm and snuggly. Screw PETA.

  8. They only use the fur of rabbits already destined as a food source? People sell rabbit meat?

  9. Is it because PETA is run by a gay man that they are obsessed with fur, designers, and celebrities?

    Why not go after dog fighting rings and puppy mills also?

    If you want to see real animal advocates, check out Anne Marie Lucas on Animal Precinct on Discovery. Talk about brave.

  11. "Is it because PETA is run by a gay man that they are obsessed with fur, designers, and celebrities?"

    Actually PETA is run by a woman, Ingrid.

    "Why not go after dog fighting rings and puppy mills also?"

    PETA does go after those as well. This is just one of several campaigns. Unfortunately, the campaigns that go after fashion houses and/or celebrities garner much more mainstream attention than the ones that go after other animal abusers.

    PETA regularly runs PSA commercials that discuss other issues, id est dog fighting, leaving animals chained outside in extreme weather, the troubles of puppy mills, et cetera.

  13. "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a group that complains bitterly when animals die accidentally in horse races or intentionally in slaughterhouses, killed more than 90 percent of the adoptable animals in its care during 2007."

    I have no issue with the usage of fur but I do have a real issue with PETA. Loser organization! We should be pouring blood on PETA reps!

  14. God... I so don't want to rehash the "petakillsanimals.com" debate (we've already had that discussion at length on this site), but that website is so full of BS it's ridiculous.

    For one thing...

    PETA DOES NOT EVEN RUN AN ANIMAL ADOTPION CENTER!

  15. You're right, RP, what PETA runs is a little kitty and doggie concentration camp.

  16. Oh lord!

  17. 24Play,

    Give me an address for where this adoption center or as you put it "concentration camp" is... BECAUSE THIS PLACE DOESN'T EXIST!
