Lady Gaga could face being pelted with faeces and paint by animal rights activists PETA over her decision to continue to wear fur in public.

Despite being praised in the past by the organisation for her ant-fur stance, the animal rights pressue group branded Gaga a "turncoat" last month (August 15) after she was seen sporting a number of fur coats in public. They also labelled both her and Rihanna as "freaks" in a separate statement.

Now, according to the Chicago Sun Times, the singer's continued decision to wear fur out in public could make her a target for some unpleasant missiles from PETA activists, with a source telling the paper: "I'm hearing they are going to try and personally attack Gaga — spraying her with paint or even throwing feces at her."

The Chicago Sun Times also reports that the singer's decision to sport a burqa to designer Philip Treacy’s show during London Fashion Week along with a bag bearing the word 'Cunt' has upset several Muslim pressure groups.

Another source told the paper of the singer's attire: "That comes across as a clear insult to Muslims and Islam."

Lady Gaga recently completed the tour's British leg with a pair of dates at Twickenham Stadium on September 8 and 9 and a third show at Manchester Arena on September 11.

The singer will return to the UK for a public appearance at iconic London department store Harrods on October 7.
