Top London Night Club Bans Fur!
Meg Mathews, who will be on the door at Mahiki celebrating the first fur-free night tomorrow, says it perfectly: “I don’t care who you are – if you’re wearing fur, you’re heartless, and you’re not coming in.”
Here’s the statement from Michael Evans, Mahiki’s creative director:
I’ve known and loved Meg for a long time, so when she told me about the cruelty that wearing fur causes it was quite a shock, so naturally I wanted to help her and PETA, I was just so shocked and appalled by how horribly animals suffer, for what amounts to nothing really. Since we have been around for 8 years and have a huge celeb following, I thought it was the natural thing to do, to put the ban in place. I believe some people don’t really understand, so teaching them and creating awareness around the issue is what we are trying to do.
Three cheers to that!
