Save Choupette! Karl Lagerfeld Is the Grim Reaper of Fashion

Posted by 3 months ago | Permalink | Comments (41)

An activist dressed as a larger-than-life Karl Lagerfeld descended on Fendi’s 90th-anniversary Haute Fourrure fashion show in Rome today to protest the fashion house’s love affair with fur.

The action highlighted how Fendi’s long-time creative director is the Grim Reaper to animals, doling out violent death sentences for tacky, vulgar fur.

All fur is a product of torture and misery, and on fur farms, many intelligent wild animals are driven insane during their short lives by wretched conditions before facing gruesome, painful and terrifying deaths by methods that include vaginal or anal electrocution, gassing and poisoning.

Lagerfeld is willing to put a fox or mink through all that just for a coat, so it makes us wonder how his beloved cat Choupette would feel if she knew.

You Can Help

Unlike fashion dinosaur Lagerfeld, many top designers – including Giorgio Armani, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren, Vivienne Westwood and Tommy Hilfiger – have gone completely fur-free. There are so many stylish and luxurious faux-fur garments on the catwalks and high street these days that there’s no excuse for wearing or selling the skin of tortured animals.

Tell your friends and family about the fur industry, and please, if you ever see fur for sale, speak out.

    Stop using fur and leather.

    • Shelly Ann commented on July 15, 2016 at 11:00 pm

      Why would any one want to use fur knowing that it came from a living creature that was put on this earth just to do what they do horrible !

      • Christine Masters commented on July 18, 2016 at 9:08 pm

        Exactly Shelly Ann, how disgusting to take a fur coat from a living creature just for the sake of vanity and what they call fashion. I was once given a fox fur jacket years ago as a birthday present and the disgust I felt was awful, it was very beautiful but not on me, it belonged to the animal. If people must wear this sort of thing get an imitation one, a friend has one and most people cannot tell the difference! Even that I would not wear either as it symbolises the real thing but better than the real thing! C

    • Shelly Ann commented on July 15, 2016 at 11:02 pm

  • Deb templeman commented on July 9, 2016 at 7:00 pm

  • Barbara Britton commented on July 9, 2016 at 7:14 pm

    I ASK EVERYONE TO LOOK AT THE FASHION COMPANIES, AND DO NOT SUPPORT THOSE THAT KILL ANIAMLS TO MAKE $$$$.
    AND PLEASE SUPPORT THE FASHION COMPANIES THAT DO NOT KILL ANIMALS!!!

    • Shelly Ann commented on July 15, 2016 at 11:02 pm

      You are right well said .

  • Gülbahar Durgun commented on July 11, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    Shame on you Kar Lagerfeld, keeping a cat as an pet and selling the fur of another animal. You and your Fendi suck! The fur may be another cat´s coat or a raccoondogs or another animal. Noone deserves to be treated inhumanely. You and your companies are disgusties. You got wealth and fame, but you lack something: humility.

  • nuala wainwright commented on July 15, 2016 at 4:25 pm

    PLEASE DO NOT BUY FROM STORES THAT PROMOTE FUR AND LEATHER. THIS IS AN ABUSE OF GOD’S CREATURES!

  • Sheena Palmer commented on July 15, 2016 at 4:27 pm

    Absolutely disgusting. I will never buy any of your products – you are vile

  • Graham Hocking commented on July 15, 2016 at 6:19 pm

    You do not have to be cruel to be cool !!.

  • Sue Morley commented on July 15, 2016 at 7:33 pm

    Fur belongs on the animal it was born with. Not on a humans back – vain people, rich people, you should be ashamed of yourselves. How would you like to be cruelly treated and have your skin ripped from you!

  • BARBARA commented on July 15, 2016 at 7:35 pm

    Art and Beauty does not come from ripping innocent animal’s fur, skin, feathers from tortured creatures. Fashion is suppose to be Art and Beauty. So what does this say for the companies that kill animals????

  • sylvie walter commented on July 15, 2016 at 8:07 pm

    No more Karl Lagerfeld clothes !!
    Shame on you.
    Don’t buy clothes with fur.

  • Linda Wilson commented on July 15, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    It starts with YOU Karl Lagerfeld. Pathetic, preening, ugly individuals who want to pay a small fortune to have your name and the skins of tortured animals on their backs. It’s just showing off a public display of wealth at the expense of individuals of a different species who want to live and enjoy their lives every bit as much as the selfish person that wants them for a status symbol.
    How did it come to this? Out of sight out of mind? We need to get on their case and show these people the absolute truth, stuff it right in their bottoxed faces, real animals, real pictures, real videos, real sounds then they might just get it.

  • Sandy Goncarovs commented on July 15, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    Lagerfeld, you are completely disgusting!! And the irony is that you believe you have good taste. What a joke.

  • christine dufour commented on July 15, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    Stop using fur and leather.

  • Conchita commented on July 15, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    DISGUSTING! Seriously can’t you see what you are doing? How can you be OK inside when you do this! Vile!!!!

  • christine dufour commented on July 15, 2016 at 9:04 pm

    stop kill animals for fashion

  • Gillian Huggett commented on July 15, 2016 at 9:20 pm

    Sick and disgusting who in their right mind would wear an animal that had been tortured before being killed just for fashion?

  • darcy commented on July 15, 2016 at 9:29 pm

    In Italy only Armani has ditched fur and leather. All the others do continue and I am so ashamed being Italian myself. I have written 5 times to Prada headquarters in Milan for the harm they cause to ostriches for their handbags and never had a reply!Such a name and company DISGUSTING!Don’t by anything from them please!

  • Rita Zago commented on July 15, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    Dreadful trade. Just like him.

  • Linda Badham commented on July 15, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    I REALLY DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW SUCH CRUELTY IS ALLOWED !! THERE SHOULD BE A LAW IN EVERY COUNTRY THAT PROTECTS ANIMALS FROM BEING SLAUGHTERED FOR THEIR GOD GIVEN SKIN !!

  • Shelly Ann commented on July 15, 2016 at 11:07 pm

    Dont wear fur full stop .

  • Victoria Thompson commented on July 16, 2016 at 11:24 am

    ‘”FENDI, MI OFFENDI!” (Trans: “Fendi, you offend me!”)

  • Victoria Thompson commented on July 16, 2016 at 11:28 am

    Mr Lagerfeld, do you know that China has cat and dog fur farms, where the animals are anally or vaginally electrocuted, skinned alive, squashed between planks, etc. ? Please Google “Dog and cat fur farms in China” Also go to PETA website to see more of these creatures being killed for their fur.

  • ANNETTE HEWITT commented on July 16, 2016 at 11:33 am

    PLEASE DO NOT USE ANIMALS IN THIS WAY. ITS CRUEL AND SO UNNECESSARY

  • Jane boyes commented on July 16, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    IT DOES INDICATE A LACK OF STYLE WHEN YOU HAVE TO REVERT TO SHOCK TACTICS. SHAME ON YOU.

  • Carol Carvalho commented on July 16, 2016 at 5:24 pm

    Shame on you! Such a talent that I used to admire. In this age real fur is not necessary, use FAKE! All the fashion houses promoting the wearing of real fur, and ignorant celebrities like the Kardashians, will only encourage the purchase of it. This must STOP!

  • Karen Wolf commented on July 16, 2016 at 8:19 pm

    Torture-killing defenseless animals for skin is abomination

  • KATE ALZAID commented on July 16, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    SHAME ON YOU KARL LAGERFELD!! Where is your compassion and ethics?
    REMEMBER KARMA!!

  • Louise Barber commented on July 16, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    From fur to down bedding, bull fighting and torturing, it’s time to ask for stronger controls on animal welfare – this is 2916 and no animals should be tirtures and abused for our gain. How can anyone normal eat four gras and wear fur? Give animals your thought and deepest compassion and do something to stop the pain and cruelty so many endure for our vanity.

  • Sarah Cockerill commented on July 17, 2016 at 4:58 pm

    Only Animals need fur, not humans! Leave these beautiful animals alone and go pluck yourself!

  • Debra Tuffs commented on July 19, 2016 at 6:31 pm

    TV shows, like ITVBe should be mde to stop showing idiotic American reality shows where women constantly ‘parade’ themselves wearing huge amounts of Fur…It makes me shudder to think how many animals have been cruelly reared and slaughtered only for the coat or bag to be thougtlessly discarded when a new fashion comes along in Spring, Summer or Autumn.

  • Giusi Rotondo commented on July 21, 2016 at 11:42 am

    NO FUR. NO VIOLENCE. LIFE AND RESPECT FOR ANIMALS

  • LOUISE BARBER commented on July 30, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    The fur trade should be illegal – animal abuse is illegal. The perpetrators should be in prison – cruelty and abuse of the defenseless is a crime.

  • Meher Behrana commented on August 2, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    UGLY PEOPLE wear and use accessories, ornaments of BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS. It is sad and shameful, that we humans have no value for beautiful animals.
