JaneUnChained with Jane Velez-Mitchell chiming in on TMZ LIVE with Harvey Levin talking about the move to ban fur sales in New York, New York! Jane Velez-Mitchell takes on pro-fur rapper Safaree who is promoting animal torture as a way to get publicity for his music. Project Runway star & fashion icon Tim Gunn joined Edita Birnkrant of NYCLASS and hundreds of other animal lovers to plead with the New York City Council to ban this barbaric and unnecessary practice that all the top designers have dropped! Here’s Jane’s response to the pro-fur nonsense! Thanks to Harvey for discussing this crucial issue in a serious manner! Notice Constantin Philippou of Vegan Club’s fabulous vegan soup painting cleverly framed in the background!
Harvey Levin, who has shared his views against the use of fur in the past, invites Jane on to respond to the rapper Safaree’s actions when he wore a fur coat and screamed at activists at an anti-fur rally. Jane pities the rapper for not being able to see the error of his actions. He has dogs at home that he loves so much but does not realize or care that the dozens of animals that were skinned for his fur coat suffered as much as his companion animals would. He also is dismissive when questioned about how the animals end up being made into a coat. His level of cognitive dissonance is appalling. All he sees a finished fur coat on a rack boutique. Jane explains that many of these animals experience excruciatingly painful traps that leave them trying to bite off limbs to escape, anal or vaginal electrocution, and skinning alive. Jane also compares wearing fur to wearing chastity belts. It’s outdated, cruel, and barbaric. She also says there is nothing cool about wearing something cruel. Hopefully, fur will be banned everywhere soon and people will stop wearing the suffering of dozens of animals unnecessarily. Until then, Jane is ready to speak up for the victims of animal torture on TMZ or wherever anyone is listening! Thank you, Harvey and Charles, for having her on the show!
Representatives of the fur industry and rapper Safaree are invited on to respond at any time.
