EXCLUSIVE: PETA Warns Tom and Katie: Keep Suri Fur-Free!
PETA has sent a letter to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes warning them not to dress daughter Suri, 2, in fur.
Citing Giorgio Armani's use of fur coats in their baby and kids collections, Dan Matthews, the vice president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals writes: "Please be vigilant about any packages that Armani sends for Suri, as they could include bunny fur from his toddler lines."
Though Matthews says PETA has "always admired" Cruise and Holmes' "fur-free personal style," the couple is "among the most highly visible wearers" of Armani.
"We imagine that Suri, like other children, has a natural affinity for animals, which is why we find it shocking that Armani is not only breaking his fur-free promise but also trying to lure children into fashion derived from skinned rabbits," Matthews adds.
This week, PETA sent similar letters to Kristin Chenoweth, Glenn Close, and Heidi Klum, who wore Armani at Sunday night's Emmys.
