PETA Sends Letter To Dr. Dre

Dr. Dre’s headphones have struck a cord with the folks at PETA. His company, Beats By Dre, recently collaborated with fashion house, Oscar De La Renta on a limited edition line. Each headset is adorned with silver fox fur. Shortly after, PETA got wind of the design and sent Dre the letter below.

Dear Dre,

I hope this message finds you well. As you may know, PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters dedicated to the protection of animals. You have many fans here.

We’re writing today after reading about your new fox-fur headphones design with Oscar de la Renta. We wanted to get in touch to urge you to keep fur and exotic-animal skins out of your Beats by Dre designs. Foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals—including cats and dogs—are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, strangled with wire nooses, drowned, and even skinned alive for their pelts. Most animals killed for their fur are slaughtered in China, where there are no penalties for those who abuse animals on fur farms.

    Forget Madoff peta might just be the biggest scam of the 21st century, all they do is bitch about celebrities & use the money they get(millions every year) to make questionable attention whoring adds campaign’s (rather go naked than wear fur ?? the porn site ??) they make Kim Kardashian look like a recluse , you would think with all the money they get they would at least try to find homes for the animals they “rescue” but no they kill 98 percent , where’s all the money going ??

    yo someone needs to call these people out they stay putting their two cents in and everyone is like “uh oh you might upset peta” fuck that. Im all for protecting animals and def against animal abuse but ive never seen the work they put in. All ive seen them do is protest and it doesnt take a scientist to realize that yelling at someone to stop doin something and they continue to still do it isnt putting in work.
    Instead they put out TONS and TONS of videos of animals being abused and shocked and killed and ive yet to see a video of PETA walking in and saving animal lives. To me they are a bunch or people that just wanna put their say in with anything that deals with animal. Thats why there name aint on shit cause no one trusts them. American Humane society is the real deal.

  • Maniak

    Dre puts a lot of crap out but Detox.

    I would slap the fuck out of anyone who wore those. Beats By Dre are overrated and anyone who buys them is just buying into the bullshit because they don’t sound like the money you pay for them. There are much better headphones out there for the money.

  • pap

    These dumb asses should be writing this letter to Jimmy Iovine, Dre doesn’t have any equity in Beats, they just slap stickers on his ass n make him the poster boy his Jimmys company lol
