‘Too Hot to Handle’ Star Emily Miller Stands With PETA Against Mink Lashes
With steamy new episodes of Too Hot to Handle just around the corner, season two star of the reality TV show Emily Miller is teaming up with PETA for a campaign urging fans to keep their bedroom eyes cruelty-free by avoiding mink lashes.
In an accompanying video, Miller explains that animals suffer and die for mink lashes: “Minks spend their entire miserable lives raised in cramped, filthy cages,” she says. “Some companies may claim they sell ‘cruelty-free’ mink lashes, but that is a scam.”
Cruelty in Every Blink
There’s no difference between a mink coat and mink eyelashes when it comes to animal suffering.
Mink fur typically comes from fur farms, where stressed minks frantically pace and circle endlessly inside wire cages and many languish with untreated infections or broken bones.
Some minks even self-mutilate as a result of the intensive confinement, gnawing on their own legs or tails. At the end of their tragic lives, they’re gassed or electrocuted or their necks are broken.
Miller continues by offering advice on how you can avoid causing animals suffering: “The good news is that there’s a huge variety of cruelty-free, synthetic lashes to buy. Always, always, always, opt for cruelty-free beauty products.”
Sephora, Tarte, Too Faced, Urban Decay, and Velour (the brand of false eyelashes worn by Meghan Markle on her wedding day) are all proudly fur-free.
Speak Out Against Fur
Miller joins a growing list of celebrities, including Twiggy, Gemma Collins, Faye Winter, Rafferty Law, and Ashley James, who have starred in anti-fur campaigns for PETA.
