PETA slam ‘caveman’ Justin Bieber for wearing huge fur coat

Fans are also concerned and angry

Justin Bieber has come under fire from PETA, who have slammed him as a ‘caveman’ for wearing a large fur coat.

After being attacked for wearing Metallica and Nirvana t-shirts, now he has drawn criticism for stepping out in what appears to be fur.

“This caveman couture look is a new low for Justin Bieber,” PETA’s Lisa Lange told Digital Spy. “Coyotes and other animals trapped for ridiculous coats like this one panic and gnaw at their limbs until a trapper arrives to shoot or beat them to death, often orphaning their helpless babies.

“It’s always astounding to see someone with such great fortune and fame show no mercy for animals who simply want to be left alone to live with their families.”

People on Twitter were also angry – or hoping that it was fake fur:

Bieber is yet to respond to the criticism.

Last month, Bieber also came under fire for an incident in which he punched a fan. This comes after making headlines for his frequent protests against overzealous fans. He told his “obnoxious” London crowd to “be quiet and listen when I’m talking” and ordered his Manchester audience to “shut up” during his ballads. A fan also attempted to pull his trousers down in Prague.

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber has been confirmed to headline a show at London’s Hyde Park as part of British Summer Time. He’ll be supported by Martin Garrix, Tove Lo and Anne-Marie when he performs on Sunday 2 July. He has also also announced a huge show at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on Friday 30 June. These shows will mark the last UK lap of his epic globe-trotting ‘Purpose’ tour.
