And then, I'll keep eating it. Tiffany Haddish Vows To Wear Fur Every Day Until 'Police Stop Killing Black People'
Comedienne Tiffany Haddish will not be getting any vegans or animal rights activists to join her crusade against police brutality. To stop "police killing black people," the "Girls Trip" star has vowed to wear fur every day.I wonder who grows purple minks?
In a post on Instagram over the weekend, Haddish featured a photo of herself in a fur vest that was bequeathed to her by a fan, vowing to "wear it as much as possible" as some kind of Black Lives Matter statement.
"I’mma wear it as much as possible. I don’t know if you guys know this about me, but I’m about to start protesting," Haddish said in the Instagram video. "I’mma wear fur every day until they stop killing black people. When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest."

Knowing full well that PETA and the animal rights activist lobby will not appreciate the fur protest, Haddish took the bull by the horns (or grabbed the flower by its thorns).And they say comedy is dead.
"So sorry, PETA!" Haddish unabashedly stated. "Don’t be mad at me. Be mad at the police," Haddish continued. "When they stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur… Because people are important, and so are the animals."
Needless to say, the 39-year-old Haddish's newfound protest did not exactly sit well with certain animal lovers on social media. Music producer Russell Simmons, a staunch vegan, asked that Haddish reconsider her protest.
"White supremacy is a disease that takes on many forms and has many symptoms," Simmons wrote in the comments. "The abuse of other beings will not address that… or heal ourselves. I love you Tiffany but I wish you would reconsider this route of protest."
