Joanna Krupa: Fur Trim Is Seriously Unattractive

Joanna Krupa, who was voted Sexiest Model in the World by magazines in the US and Australia, is stripping down for animals in her brand-new PETA ad, in which she points out the absurdity of wearing fur and fur trim by wearing “a bit” of it herself!

“I wanted to do this campaign to keep talking to people about how bad fur is. Stop! Fur is not sexy. It’s not cool”, Krupa says in her PETA US interview. “You’re walking down the street wearing fur—you really look like an idiot!”

Animals who are killed for their fur endure excruciating pain and suffering. On fur farms, furbearing animals spend their entire lives in cramped, filthy cages before they are violently killed by genital electrocution or other equally crude methods. Animals caught in traps have been known to gnaw through their own limbs in a desperate attempt to escape. And undercover investigations have revealed that animals are skinned while conscious and able to feel pain.

Watch all the action, and then join Joanna by taking PETA’s pledge to go fur-free.

    I would like to see fur wearers skinned alive !!! An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth … Scumbags!!!

  2. the sub-species who wear furs deserve to burn in hell, and i suspect they will, as will the killers of beautiful animals whose only fault is to have fur which the said sub-species think they are more entitled to own than the original owner. may they be tormented in death as they have made these poor animals suffer.

    Disgusting and heartbreaking practice.

    People that wear knowing the suffering the animals endure on fur farms deserve all they get in life.

    I watched the video of them skinning dogs while very much alive will live with me for the rest of my life, the dogs screamed and whined as their coat was skinned off them then they walked away to await death …..makes me so ashamed to be human xx

    Using sexism to make your point, PETA? Quelle surprise! Can we PLEASE care about animal rights and sexist body fascism at the same time?

      Don t even compare this 2 thigs!!!Campaigns like this are need to pay attention to people in such awful things like wearing fur!!!!Great job Joanna!!!

    • avatar Hazel says:

      I completely agree Alanna. I find it shocking that no one else has even mentioned the fact that this is disgusting and derogatory for women. And you’re right, Elvi, don’t even compare the 2 things, they are completely different! Whether a woman has pubic hair or not is not even an issue like wearing fur is, that’s why this advert is ridiculous and offensive. Don’t we have enough problems in the world, including the use of fur, than having to play on women’s insecurities about their image and comparing their hair to something as sickening as fur. That’s extreme. To compare pubic hair to wearing fur is completely the wrong message to send out. As a feminist fighting for the very fragile issue of how women are perceived by men and other women, I’m appalled by this. This is a massive step backwards.

      I totally agree with you guys.

  9. THESE CHINESE FURFARMS ARE THE MOST BARBARIC FORMS OF CRUELTY IMAGINABLE. THESE POOR LOVELY ANIMALS SHOVED INTO CRAMPED CAGES,NO FOOD OR WATER FOR DAYS ON END AND ALL THIS WHILE HAVING TO LISTEN TO OTHER BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS SCREAMS OF PAIN AS THEY ARE SKINNED ALIVE!! THE MENTAL CRUELTY BEFORE THE PHYSICAL CRUELTY MUST BE HELLISH!! I HATE THE CHINESE GOVT.FOR DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO PREVENT THIS CRUELTY AND SIMPLY TURNING A BLIND EYE. HOW A HUMAN BEING CAN INFLICT SUCH PAIN AND CRUELTY ON THESE POOR ANIMALS IS BEYOND ME…..THEY ARE NOT HUMANS AS WE KNOW THEM,THAT IS FOR SURE. THEY ARE EVIL,SADISTIC KILLERS WHO ARE COMMITTING MASS MURDER AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT!!! CHINESE GOVT….SHAME ON YOU ALL!!

    i’m so tired of your sexist campaigns! i’m vegan and all for animal rights but i would never want to be associated with you PETA! sort it out

  11. avatar Lol says:

    Nothing says reasonable like a comment all in capitals.

  12. avatar Kathryn says:

    I may be being ignorant, but I am curious to hear anti-fur opinions.

    What is the difference between ‘humanely’ produced leather, suede or fur?

    Would you still disagree with the wearing of ‘vintage’ furs?

    Responses appreciated.

    Wearing fur is cruel and appalling, but so is telling women that their natural bodies are unattractive. Where are your ethical standards when it comes to the treatment of people, PETA? Or do they not matter?

  14. […] topless with fake fur taped to the gusset of her underwear next to a tagline that reads, “Don’t ruin your look with fur trim.” This isn’t even the first or second time Ms. has had to call out PETA for running an ad […]

  15. avatar Cecily Colloby. says:

    This has nothing to do with sexism and everything to do with the unimagineable suffering caused to helpless animals on fur farms.Humans can help themselves-animals can’t and if this picture gets the message accross about the vile cruelty of fur farming,then that’s what matters !!This woman clearly is more concerned with stopping the cruelty than she is about women being “demeaned” and good for her!!!!We can all stand up for ourselves if we are demeaned but an animal can’t stop some hideous human skinning it alive-I know which is more important and so should anyone with half a brain.!

    • avatar Absurd says:

      No matter how unattractive fur trim is, this “ad” is twice as unattractive! Just because animal abuse shouldn’t be encouraged doesn’t mean peta (no capital letters on purpose) should objectify and demean humans while simultaneously annoying the very animals whose plight they’re calling attention to in the first place! Congratulations to Prostitutes Exposing T&A for Animals for rising to new lows for the zillionth time!

    How can people wear other beings’ skins? I am disgusted when I see a person covered with corpses.
