Here is what Patti LaBelle had to say about People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in a "Newsweek
"I like my coats. I don't want PETA to get mad at me, but I love chinchilla. It's so soft. I love cashmere. They get mad at a little girl like me. But you know I work for it. When they start buying me coats is when I start listening to them."
PETA does some good work in protecting animals from mistreatment but they are also extremist many times and pull nutty stunts to make their point. So we have to agree with Ms. Patti. Leave a sister's hard-earned coat alone. Such luxuries were kept out of our reach for a long long time.
