PETA sends Beyoncé a wedding gift


beyonce_PETA.jpgAnimal rights group PETA has sent Beyoncé Knowles a fake fur throw as a wedding present.

The singer tied the knot with rapper Jay-Z last week and the group gave her the fashion item in the hope that it will change her attitude towards wearing fur.

According to digital, a statement from the group read: "From all of us at PETA, we wish you much happiness in your life together. Please accept this faux-fur throw with many good wishes and a hope from us that together, you'll be a fur-free couple!"

Beyoncé was previously attacked by PETA for wearing a mink coat to the premiere of The Pink Panther. The group had also tried to force her to watch a video of an animal being skinned.

PETA Vice President Lisa Lange said: "Celebrities know that the easiest way to keep PETA off their backs is by keeping fur off their backs. Time will tell if Beyoncé is truly committed to being fur-free."
