On Thursday, the 23-year-old singer tweeted an image of herself rocking thigh-high snakeskin boots and a tight burgundy leather mini skirt as she opted for a casual look by throwing on a loose black sweatshirt.
PETA was not too pleased.
According to WENN, a PETA spokewoman remarked, “Rihanna may not have a clue that snakes killed for boots are often nailed to a tree and skinned alive.
“Of course, they can’t go on Oprah to cry about it.”
And by the Oprah comment, she was referring to Rihanna’s recent emotional breakdown on her show — claiming to still be in love with Chris Brown.
Do these boots make the wrong statement or are they just an awesome choice of footwear?
