Rocawear Accused of Using Real Animal Fur on “Faux” Fur Jackets

Jay-Z’s Rocawear clothing label has been accused of incorrectly advertising a jacket from its winter line as having “faux” fur, when, in fact, the garment contains fur from a small dog indigenous to China. The Humane Society of the United States says it purchased one of the jackets from the Rocawear Web site and sent it to a lab for testing to determine whether the claim was true. The results of the test showed that the jacket actually contained fur from a raccoon dog, a small animal raised for its fur in China.

Just last month, Sean “Diddy” Combs found himself in hot water with the Humane Society for using the exact same raccoon dog fur in one of his Sean John jackets. Following the news, Diddy released a public apology, and Macy’s department store pulled the jackets from their shelves. The Humane Society is currently lobbying Congress to ban the import of all raccoon dog fur into the United States.

    BIG D!
    you sound like like an idiot with that comment,
    get a grip…go read a book or something.

    Roc-a-wear should know better. there is no need for any of the major companies to be using real fur nowadays because the world of shit that follows from these people isn’t worth it. You only end up with paint thrown on you as you walk in to some high class party with your best clothes on….dumb

  • Dipset

    It was Rocawear when Dame had it, now you got it call it cock-a-wear… got it on? not in here!!

    Seriously man, this shit is stupid, they went and bought the coat and sent it for testing, like JAY or DIDDY have ANYTHING to do with what kind of fuckin fur is on some random jacket in their clothing line?!?!
    Humane Sociecty (animal fuckers) just lookin for some publicity stunt mang. GET A LIFE or A LIFE PARTNER YOU ANIMAL FUCKING PSYCHOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don’t give a fuck what yall say, this is good to know. What the fuck is a racoon dog?!? Why don’t they just advertise it as real fur instead of faux fur? they lyin to the consumers. Think about if you wipe yo mouth off on yo collar and that just happened to be racoon dog ass fur? you’d be shitty as hell (pun intended)!

  • che

    they gonna eat the dog over there in china either way. so you either throw away the fur, or use it. it’s just good business. why waste it?

    and fuck the Humane Society, humans probably wouldn’t exist right now if neanderthals (stone men) didn’t use animal fur to clothe themselves. and i bet those same do gooding motherfuckers own a whole buncha leather shoes n shit.

    in fact, how come they don’t say shit when sean john or roc a wear use leather? is a motherfucking racoon dog’s skin less moral to use than a cow’s? (no hindu.)

    fuckin’ pricks.

  • realness10

    What da fuck is a raccoon dog and if yall cant explain dat, stop spreadin dis shit damn dis is da bullshit i goin 2 see when im discovered

  • Jwalka

  • Spickster

    Its not a good fuckin jacket unless its real animal fur, Fuck all the tree huggers out there, i go hunting all the time.

  • kitten

    Wow. How closed minded can people get? First off, not everyone who protests fur eats meat. I do agree that it is quite hypocritical. Personally, I don’t wear leather, fur, wool, or eat anything that had a mom or a dad, or anything that came from an animal, period. No milk, no cheese, no eggs. Just vegetables and grains. Its called being vegan, and you would be surprised at how much delicious food is out there besides what you’re used to eating. Second, stop pulling the race card. That gets me more than anything else. We are trying to save animals, it isn’t about race. Stop bringing race into it, because it has nothing to do with it, and you know it. Any company that sells real fur is going to hear from us, you can bet on it. Last but not least, nobody is going to take you seriously unless you learn to spell and use proper grammar.
    It makes one appear uneducated not doing so, and at that point nobody will take you seriously. Stop being selfish and actually think for once about how your decision to wear a tacky fur coat affects animals and what they have to go through. Watch the video, and learn something.

  • MMMMMTTTT

    Anyone know where I can still pick up the real fur Sean John jacket?

  • Spickster

    Your fuckin stupid, you dont eat cheese or drink milk, thats fuckin insane, get a life weirdo!

    • bklynluv

      LOL i love people like you who embody ignorance. Vegans get less cancer, less disease, and live longer lives than meat eaters. Enjoy your milk. It has pus in it. YUM! (research it before you talk).
      dumbasses.

  • Li

    I must say that fur is really, really, soft and I love it.

    But, again, like everyone is saying, I eat meat so how can I protest people who wear fur? I can see if animal activist pushed for better treatment of the fur “process” but simply saying that we shouldn’t wear fur because “some” people don’t do take fur off animals correctly, isn’t a good platform.

    Animal rights activist should push for the de-furring, or un-furring or whatever it’s called that process being done better. I’m sure cows are pleased with their milk being sucked out of them by machines twice a day either.

  • DISNOTORIOUSOUTKAST

    fuck u kitten…thats bs….it is a race factor…whites always wanna bang us blacks for stupid shit…muafuka

  • tigers

    I love animals and I think anyone who thinks it is ok to kill animals for their fur coat, is sick minded.

  • cnfesnbrknheart
