Seems to me that it is contradictory. I can understand wanting to help the homeless. I really can, but I think recycling something you are against endorses it in a way.

Peta goes overboard on most of their ideas.... And sometime it looks as though they are a bunch of crazies!

I would like to put a PETA patch on the leather coat I found at the thrift store. I feel guilty wearing it but I bought it at a shelter's thrift store & it fits well. I would never buy leather or fur retail. I do eat meat though :(

Glad it is being donated, but what is dead is dead - so what after the fact .... PETA is just wacky - I find them hard to take seriously. I like that they are passionate, but I think they turn people off to the cause with their actions. They seem to not really think things through - giving fur coats to homeless (smelly, wet, dirt furs in a week - nice...).

Reading all the comments here shows how different we all are. I eat meat and wear leather. I buy leather jackets for economical reasons actually. Leather never goes out of style, is warm, and lasts forever.

It is good they donated the coats to the homeless, but I feel it would have been better to sell the coats and use that money for the homeless instead. (Okay you can beat me here, but my practical side is showing today.) As a homeless person, the fur will not last long with them being outside in the elements, snow rain and such. Someone who does want fur, can pay the price, and use that money to buy the homeless more practical clothing.

I have a sister that loves her mink coat. Each to their own but when we go out together I don't even want to stand next to her if she is wearing it. It is almost like you can hear all those little animals, plus I am afraid that some PETA nut will attack us!!! Love my sister, hate her choice in coats.

Hopefully she is a reformed former fur coat owner and will think twice about either owning one or wearing one in a movie.

Good for her for bringing this to other's attention.

I'm a little disappointed to hear that they used real fur just the movie...would anyone really have noticed if it was a fake? I wouldn't have.

Doesn't wearing a fur coat put homeless people in danger of being robbed for their coat? This is not smart.

I think this is a great thing. I wish I had the will power to be a vegetarian and not use leather goods but I don't. I really respect people that do though. A good friend of mine is a total vegan and buys no leather goods . . she has fabulous purses and shoes despite the fact!

i definitly agree with rakubu. they did not have to use real fur in the movies. but damaging them with paint is a little after the fact. the poor animals are already gone if these people cared so much they wouldn't be showing such disrespect for the animals aready gone. please do something for the next ones to be used for our vanity. we have to eat for our bodies but we don't have to feed our vanity

Good for her, there are far to many fake of synthetic fur. I think the main reason they wear them is as a status cymbal. I don't think It makes much sense to want to cover yourself up with animals who have been grown and killed only for you to look good. Years ago we killed animals and wore their fur but we also ate the meet and used the bone to fashion instruments. Animal Death are not a fashion statement. I have never owned or worn a fur.

I agree with you completely Carol. Killing some poor furry creature in hopes of looking as cute as they do is really creepy.

I don't know why they even needed to wear real fur coats when faux fur is just as good.

I didn't know PETA donated fur coats to the homeless. That's a great idea. But I agree with everyone else who has commented: Why did they use real fur, which they destroyed, instead of fake. I don't even like the idea of fake fur.

i agree with people. why didn't they use fake fur? it's on TV, who would know the difference? especially since in the show they were planning on ruining the coat anyway. fake fur would have been a better choice.

I think it is a good program to get rid of coats that are already made. My question is why didn't the movie use fake fur and still donate it to PETA. Why buy a real fur coat to try to make a statement? Right sentiment, wrong method.

We all know that some of PETA's members can get a little obsessive, but PETA along with other less exuberant animal advocacy organizations, has been quite successful in persuading top designers such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Stell McCartney and Marc Bouwer to stop using animal fur in their designs. As for this story, furs for the homeless--why not.

This is kind of weird to me. Putting a PETA sticker on fur kinda seems like an endorsement. Just be rid of the coats once and for all.
