Beyoncé is again under attack; this time, it is because of her shoes!
Beyoncé has recently been spotted by PETA sporting a pair of custom Isabel Marant wedge sneakers. According to E! News, the sneakers are made from "a range of exotic animal skins including stingray, ostrich, calf hair, crocodile and anaconda” and are called "The King Bey."
"These custom-made kicks come with a high price and it's paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed," PETA states, slamming the singer’s shoes. "Although most people aren't as familiar with the types of animals (snakes, stingrays, crocodiles, and ostriches) killed for this single pair of sneakers as they are with the cats and dogs we share our homes with, these animals are highly sensitive living beings who try hard to avoid capture and suffer enormously when trapped, netted, speared, and skinned alive."
As many of you recall, this is not the first time PETA has had a problem with Beyone’s fashion this year.
Beyoncé’s halftime performance at the Super Bowl, where the singer touted a revealing leather outfit, had animal rights activists up in arms. In an interview with E! News PETA scolded the artist, claiming that "Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé's Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.”
And we can't forget about the infamous three-quarter length Christian Dior mink coat Beyoncé wore while singing at the inauguration earlier this year.
Despite repeated indiscretions, PETA maintains hope that Beyoncé will change her ways. "We hope that Beyoncé will choose to wear more clothes from her own clothing line, which features faux fur, and that one day, she'll go completely cruelty-free.”
