There is nothing fashionable about the cruelty associated with fur industry. Denied everything that is natural and important to them, animals on fur farms spend every day in agony before meeting a gruesome death. Many top designers and trendsetting stores—including Stella McCartney, Betsey Johnson, Ralph Lauren, Forever 21, and H&M—have dropped fur from their collections.
When asked why he chose to speak out against the fur industry, Aoki said: “I’ve been a supporter of PETA ever since I got turned on to animal rights when I was 14. After reading Ingrid Newkirk’s book in high school, PETA became more and more an influence throughout my adolescence. Now over 15 years later, I am still a supporter and proud to be a spokesperson for peta2.”
