Sia Asks Kanye West to Get Rid of the Fur Coats in His Yeezy Season 5 Line
Kanye hosted his Yeezy Season 5 fashion show in New York City yesterday (Feb. 15), and some of the models wore mink coats and fur-trimmed vests. Afterward, Sia tweeted at 'Ye and asked if he would consider going fur-free in his fashion endeavors.
"Dear @kanyewest would you consider going fur free? This is the reality of fur for fashion - it's so sad," the "Wolves" singer said on Wednesday afternoon. She also included a link to a video showing the process of fur-for-fashion. In the clip, rabbits are confined, mistreated and eventually killed to make clothing.
This isn't the first time Sia has voiced her opinion on the topic of animal cruelty. In late December, the singer had some words for Azealia Banks, after Banks revealed that she had been sacrificing chickens in her closet for three years. “Sacrificing animals for your gain is the wackest shit I’ve ever heard,” Sia wrote on Twitter. “Get ahead by being awesome, kind and working hard.”
Azealia replied in a since-deleted tweet, typing, “Sis, sis... call me and let me crush up some maravilla and some honey and cascarilla and make a salve for that chapped face of yours,” Banks wrote. “Don’t you ever in your pompous white life ever fix your stupid chapped face to say anything sideways about my religious beliefs or practices. This is your first warning.”
Banks continued, “And your ugly pasty dry white lady winter skin face is the ugliest face I’ve ever seen that must be why you hide it all the time,” Banks wrote. “HAVE SOME FUCKING RESPECT FOR MY FUCKING TRADITIONAL AFRICAN RELIGION YOU POMPOUS WHITE BITCH.”
Kanye has yet to respond to Sia. You can check out Sia's tweet directed at Kanye below, along with the video clip explaining the fur-for-fashion process.
