Taking a break from her hunky hubby and adorable daughters, Jessica Alba showed up at Matsuhisa restaurant in Beverly Hills last night (January 8).
Joined by a few gal pals, the “Fantastic Four” actress looked gorgeous in a green winter jacket complete with rabbit fur trim as she exited the eatery.
However, Jessica’s bunny pelt garment has raised questions about her cruelty-free credo, and PETA isn’t happy about it at all.
A rep from the organization had previously told press, “Like other animals farmed for their fur, rabbits—who are fastidiously clean by nature—are kept in tiny, filthy cages, surrounded by their own waste. They spend their entire miserable lives standing on thin wires, never having a chance to dig, jump, or play. The methods of slaughter are barbaric—their necks are broken or their skulls are smashed before they are strung up by their hind legs and their heads are cut off.”
“Asian markets also routinely slaughter dogs and cats for sale as ‘rabbit fur.’ Because of the rampant false labeling of Asian-produced fur, it is impossible to know exactly what kind of animal skin you are wearing if you buy fur. With so many high-quality alternatives available, compassionate consumers and animal-friendly fashionistas are sparing bunnies and shunning skins by choosing soft acrylics, brushed cotton, and faux fur instead.”
