Martha Stewart Renounces Fur, Hosts PETA Video Exposé
“I used to wear real fur,” says Martha Stewart in her new video for PETA, “but, like many others, I had a change of heart when I learned what actually happens to the animals.” Her brief fur-trade exposé, filmed on the set of her TV talk show, shows how animals are trapped, strangled, and electrocuted for their pelts.
Martha’s public turnaround on fur began this spring, when she responded from jail to a letter from PETA Vice President Dan Mathews, explaining that the fur she famously wore the day of her sentencing was fake. Martha credits her vegetarian daughter, Alexis, who costars in her new show, The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, with making her aware of animal issues. – PETA press release
