Uh Oh, looks like Victoria Beckham needs to keep her eyes open! Seems like Victoria’s new hand bag collection has caused PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to target the designer. Her handbag collection contains bags made from crocodile, lizard and calf skins, and according to the Daily Mirror newspaper that has PETA seeing red!
PETA have been on Victoria’s back for weeks sending email after email. But it’s not as if Victoria is going to the Everglades and strangling the crocs with her bare hands.
The source also goes on to say that PETA is planning drastic action to get their point across!
One of the ideas being mooted is that Victoria gets covered in a bucket of animal blood – cow or lizard – at her next UK public appearance.
Another rather sick suggestion was to pelt crocodile feet at her when she goes to an editor’s lunch in London next month. Victoria tries not to surround herself with bodyguards but her security has had to be increased.
Um, ew. I think that might be going a bit far, no? Victoria’s spokesperson did say that the designer conformed with all standards and practices when making the bags;
As with all Victoria Beckham products, the handbags are made to the highest quality and design. These skins sit strictly within the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) regulations and are monitored at every step of production.
I think that you can protest something without dumping animal blood or throwing crocodile feet at someone! Do you think PETA would get their message across better by a peaceful protest or are their more controversial actions more effective?

just wondering how many crocodiles or lizards they have to kill to perform that?
I was thinking that, too….
I thought the same thing. How many animals does PETA have to kill to throw this “bucket of animal blood” on her. They’re obnoxious. I mean, I’m all about saving the animals and protecting them, too, but that’s just obnoxious to have to throw a bucket of blood at someone to get your point across.
Controversial actions ARE more effective – at providing a cathartic sense of importance for tiny-minded hostile people who have nothing better to do.
So it’s not okay to make handbags out of animal skins, but it IS okay to use their blood or body parts….as long as it is PETA who is doing it…..well, that changes everything. Clarity is a wonderful thing. WOW, PETA. Hypocritical much?
Ok, I don’t even like this woman, but those ideas are ridiculous and hypocritical. These people sicken me.
Who does PETA think they are? They don’t protest restaurants or Farmer’s Markets that slaughter these animals! I’m going to walk infront of their office in head to toe animal fur and skins and I dare them to come near me. I’ll kick their asses!!!!!!!
I can only assume that PETA lunies do not wear shoes, use soap, take medication or use any skincare products. Get real, the rearing of crocodiles and how they end up is no diffrent to cattle.
