PETA’s ‘Grim Reapers’ Descend on Janet Jackson Manila Concert in Protest Against Fur

Group reminds Janet Jackson that fur cruelty is "nasty" in her concert tonight at the PICC.

What: Dressed as the Grim Reaper and holding signs that read, “Janet: Fur Is Dead,” as well as a banner that reads, “Janet: Animals Suffer and Die on Fur Farms,” 10 members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia-Pacific will protest outside Janet Jackson’s concert in Manila on Friday. Jackson recently appeared in an ad for Blackglama furs.

“When it comes to buying into terror and death in hopes of revitalizing her career, Janet Jackson has been—to borrow the title of one of her early hits—’Nasty,'” says PETA Asia-Pacific’s Rochelle Regodon. “With so many fashionable, warm, and cruelty-free materials available, there’s simply no excuse for wearing fur.”

Animals trapped for their fur suffer excruciating pain before they are bludgeoned or stomped to death by trappers. Animals on fur farms are confined to tiny, filthy cages, where they are exposed to all weather extremes. Many go insane before they are killed by electrocution, poisoning, gassing, or neck-breaking. An undercover investigation of a fur farm in China—now the world’s leading fur exporter—revealed that animals, including cats and dogs, are often skinned alive.

Where: Outside the Philippine International Convention Center, CCP Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City

When: Friday, February 4, 5:30 p.m.
