Lady Gaga is not staying mum at her fur critics, but firing back full force demanding that they respect her right to put on her body whatever she would like – and calls fellow-fur-coating Kim Kardashian “fabulous.”
After the Bad Romance singer wore a few fur coats in public, Gaga ruffled some serious feathers – no pun intended! – having received serious backlash, so she posted a statement on her website in response and specifically aimed at the same PETA activists who flour-bombed Kardashian in March.

"I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life," Gaga wrote, "I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE."

"Particularly one that I respect. 'Animal Rights.' I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, 'kermit' and not to mention meat, that I have already worn."

She adds, "You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance."
Lastly, Gaga writes, "I respect your views, please respect mine. And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous."
A rep for Kermitt the Frog has not made a comment.
