Kelis Fires Back at PETA


The fur is flying after Kelis received a personalized letter from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Instead of keeping the matter private, Kelis has decided to respond publicly. In her rebuttal, she goes after the animal rights organization and its founder. Read the juicy contents below.

Good morning all!

Ok, so you’re gonna love this. The other day I got a personalized letter from PETA! Lol so after some thought I’ve decided to write one back. Goes a little something like this:

There is no humane way to kill anything, let me start there. It’s unfortunate but it’s part of life. With that being said, I would eat pterodactyl if you found some and you told me it was meaty and delicious. And after doing a very minimal amount of research……. I found out that the founder Ingrid Newkirk is completely batty. I had a feeling but she far exceeded my expectations. I mean certifiably insane! Lol this chicks will is nuts, google it – it’s a riot! Beyond the fact that I think she’s a diabetic, which means she needs insulin, which is taken from lab pigs (I know this because my sister happens to be in veterinary school), which would be completely hypocritical. It’s like don’t abuse animals unless it can help me.

I feel very strongly about a lot of things such as the sweatshops that spin cotton and the blood on their hands. Btw it’s not just the look of fur. It’s warm as hell and feels glorious, ever rubbed faux fur on your body? Nothing luxurious about that. Then the letter proceeded to name artist and designers who don’t wear real fur. Great! More for me! I don’t judge them, don’t judge me.

If I started wearing endangered animals like polar bear or orangutan then talk to me. (Which btw for the record I would not – I do believe in the preservation of endangered species) But the minks and chinchilla that quite honestly are rodents and if weren’t in the form of a coat I would demand they be put to death anyway are not an issue to me.

The death of high fashion. Ugh.

I eat meat, and in fact my mouth salivates as I type the word meat! And the paint throwing that’s just ridiculous! What if I was hurling Loubitons and Pierre Hardy’s at every sad poorly dressed person on the street? As right as I may be it’s just fanatical and crazy. And people have the right to feel as they please. What about art? Survival of the fittest. Natural selection? No let’s just let all the rodents run free and over take our cities. Oh wait they have, NY and LA in particular are infested! Why don’t u save them all from scavenging on the streets and ruining my evening strolls, take them home. Make them pets! Get off my back! Pun intended!

Underpaid minorities picking your vegetables, now that’s fine for you right? Please, fight for their rights. How about the poverty in the communities of brown people around the world. She had the nerve to say (and I quote) “get over it” talking of the issue of black people and slavery in this country verses cows being slaughtered. Is she kidding me? Lol yes she must be. Actually, she’s lucky most black people have real issues to worry about in the U.S and don’t give a crap what her delusional privileged opinions are. But she should try saying that again just for kicks n giggles on the corner of Adam Clayton Powell Blvd in Harlem n see how well people “get over it” lol.

If u want to preach do it about something worthwhile don’t waste my time trying to save the dang chipmunk.

Find a worthwhile cause like the women being maimed in these Middle Eastern countries. Or female circumcision. Or women’s rights here in America, we still get paid less for doing the same jobs as men. Quite honestly if you hate the world so much go live in the forest where no one else has to hear you complain about the perfectly good food chain the good Lord created. Everyone has the right to an opinion, and that’s mine on that! xoxo

    @…, “get over it”, Kelis makes perfect sense.


  2. Eleven8

    BOOM!!! i agree 1000%


  3. BitchBooBYE

    There’s nothing ignorant that shes saying. People always find something negative to say about Kelis. She speaking the truth and I agree with her 1000000%!


  4. kj

    I love that woman even more!! she’s a genius : D

    sounds pretty darn ignorant.

    right on Kelis . there’s plenty of shit going on in the world that deserves better attention . love this woman :)


  9. Nats

    GO KELIS! I agree with her 100% and everything she has said. Love her even more after this.


  10. Burmy

    Finally, somebody GETS IT!

    petakillsanimals(dot)com – sums up my stance!


  11. ese

    ahh i love it. peta needs to calm down. put their money towards something more worthwhile.


  12. Dillon_68

    I thought Kelis was alright before this and afterwards I have 10X more respect for her, bout time someone told off that deranged PETA!


  13. drtash

    OOOOOHHHHHHH HOOO HOOOO!!!Somebody got slayed!!!lol…For a moment looking at the long letter I thought…PLEASE DON’T PULL A KANYE…..BUT….I agree with her.I would love to hear what Pink (who is PRO-PETA) has to say about this.Now that would be funny if they (Kelis vs Pink) started a back and forth war of words about ‘em. That would be funny! lmao


  14. Gisellle

    I agree. PETA needs to stop. They got mad when Obama killed a fly on national TV, wtf?


  15. lol umm..

    I was with her until these parts:

    “But the minks and chinchilla that quite honestly are rodents and if weren’t in the form of a coat I would demand they be put to death anyway are not an issue to me.

    The death of high fashion. Ugh.

    I eat meat, and in fact my mouth salivates as I type the word meat! And the paint throwing that’s just ridiculous! What if I was hurling Loubitons and Pierre Hardy’s at every sad poorly dressed person on the street? As right as I may be it’s just fanatical and crazy.”

    LOL If I see her on the street I’m going to hurl an effing wanted ad and career books to her undeserved, overpaid over glamorized gold digging ass for raping Nas of his money. Really, maybe if your ass invested your money smartly instead of paying extra for chinchilla off of what is probably someone else’s dime, not your own, you wouldn’t have to be asking for over 60K a month to support the “lifestyle” you’ve come accustomed to. Kelis gets a bitch please. Why the hell your baby need Louis Vuitton diaper bags or a high fashion stroller? As long as we’re keeping it real… you average a hit song every 4 to 5 years, and as your divorce proceedings claimed you cannot maintain your own ish without having to take someone to the bank so you can SIT THE EFF DOWN & STFU. Don’t see her ass doing anything for these causes either.

    I swear, I used to like her but every time she opens her mouth she loses more and more for me. Arrogance is not cute. Especially when you haven’t the status to back it up.


  16. Taisha

    lmao! Can you say ignorance? I’m a vegan and I don’t wear fur. Humans barely die, So PETA is doing the right thing because innocent animals do not deserve such pain. How would you feel if someone killed you at a slaughterhouse just because of a hamburger? Hello, Kelis you’re a one-hit-wonder, nobody cares about you neither.


    young black and gifted Reply:

    @Taisha, last time i checke we were animals to. natural laws says let the fittest survive, we doing it. shut up. u made ur decision dont force it on others


  17. Pedro

    To anyone who thinks this is ignorant please go back to school and learn something! There was nothing ignorant or arrogant about her statement if you had the money to wear real fur or leather you’d probably be wearing it right now! Maybe they should send money to Haiti! And if you guys haven’t yet make sure you help also donate money by texting there’s plenty of them now from 3$ – 10$ so far US made 3 million dollars ;)


  18. Tray-Z

    I see why this tranny is trying to be “arrogant”. They spilled paint on her ass. That’s why haha. She can’t even compete with style icons like Lady Gaga and Lady Gaga is against fur lmfao


    young black and gifted Reply:

    @Tray-Z, Gaga a fashion icon my ass, i dont see anyone else following her style.ha! get a life


    BitchBooBYE Reply:

    MANLY KaKa is no style icon. More like impostor, swagger jacker, gimmick Roisin Murphy/Bjork/Grace Jones wannabe.


  19. ugh

    she has an OPINION and i respect it. some points i totally agree with and some point i do not. thats just my OPINION. for the people in here calling others ignorant or wrong for their OPINIONS, thats just hypocritical because everyone is entitled to their own OPINION.


  20. ryan

    sorry kelis that you dont want to give up your fur but guess what your fur comes from animals that die incredibly cruel deaths. the fur is basically ripped off their body. so you talk about a real cause, the fight to stop the cruel deaths of millions of animal for fashion is a real cause.

    also you say take up a real cause. you complain about peta not caring for other causes. well i dont see you going after the american cancer society for not trying to stop diabetes… its not like all charities have to do the same thing…


    UserQQQQ Reply:

    @ryan, “so you talk about a real cause, the fight to stop the cruel deaths of millions of animal for fashion is a real cause.”

    Two of the major arguments made by the open letter are that a) there’s no such thing as a cruel death. All deaths are cruel. There’s no nice way to kill an animal. (personally i disagree but that’s the point she’s making) so categorizing it as ‘millions of cruel deaths’ is intentionally and unnecessarily inflammatory the other major point (that I agree with) is that b) if killing 3 million rats and 5 million minks a year somehow brought all the impoverished 3rd world nations to middle class then I’d be out there laying rat traps every weekend.

    Personally I don’t think you need to treat animals in a way that is unnecessarily cruel and violent, just because I’m against the sunless movementless factory farms doesn’t mean I’m against killing animals that’s just life.


    ryan Reply:

    @UserQQQQ, kelis says that there’s no such thing as a cruel death and that all deaths are cruel. however even though she knows it’s cruel she does nothing to stop it. saying that death is cruel and it’s just the way it is is a weak and pathetic argument. killing animals doesn’t have to be just a way of life. we can change that. saying theres nothing we can do about it is just an easy way out. do you really think that when my ancestors were slaves, they said that its just a way of life? no. they created a movement by trying to convince others and showing that there was cruelty in slavery. slavery was a way of life but they changed that.

    and the killing of 3 million rats and 5 million minks a year will not bring impoverished nations out of poverty. thats just illogical. if 100 people had to die to end world hunger, would you do it? imagine if that was your family. dont hurt ones cause to help anothers.

    and if you want to help poor and hungry nations, become vegetarian. the huge majority of oats, grains, beans, and corn in this country goes to feeding livestock, pigs, and cattle. so if we instead gave all this food to people and not animals, we would in fact be helping fight world hunger at a greater rate.


  21. young black and gifted

    then take ur case to those places, dont come to me with ur stupid paint for buying something i like. idiot.


  22. ryan

    ummmm they do go to those places… you should actually research it before you make accusations.

    they also go to people who buy fur and show them what’s wrong with it.

    also i hope you calling me an “idiot” or saying stuff is “stupid” makes you feel better cause its all you got.


    young black and gifted Reply:

    @ryan, oh it does i feel so much better. idiot. point is, u throw with paint or attack me because im wearing fur then im beat ur ass down. speak to me, if i dont want to hear it, i dont.


    ryan Reply:

    @young black and gifted, good for you. youre sooo cool. im so scared…..

    honestly its people like you who arent even willing to understand what peta is trying to say who are the ignorant ones.

    theres something called cotton for a reason. its keeps us warm. we dont need dead animal skin on our bodies.

    but whatever i guess you have no heart at all to care for those who are less powerful than you…


  23. AJC

    I love Kelis even more now!!!


  24. bass_man

    People can laugh at this, like I have, but let’s be real. Her reasons for wearing fur are inconsiderate. She just sounded like some unfazed human being. Those animals suffer incredibly for her “fabulousness”. Facts.

    But, she has a right to whatever feelings she may have towards that. Can’t save everyone.


  25. bijan

    she has a good idea on her hands but shes too dumb to make any sense


    young black and gifted Reply:

    @bijan, she made perfect sense, those animals were gonna die one way or the other and by gods creation i need my meat and i need something to keep me warm.


    Joyams Reply:

    @young black and gifted, did you ever see how they take the fur from the animals. It’s really awful, and saying that they are gonna die anyway is so idiot, you should be ashamed. So i could cut someone balls and wait for him to die because he’s gonna die anyway… Your opinion is non sense, like Kelis.


  26. Sunny

    In my opinion, both PETA and Kelis suck.

    PETA is not a very good animal rights organization in the sense that they are going about their complains in a very ridiculous way. I agree that paint-throwing isn’t a great way to get people to stop buying fur coats, but in reality fur coats shouldn’t be made in the first place (at least not for fashion).

    Now for Kelis:
    She uses the argument of “survival of the fittest”. Last time I checked, her so-called “high fashion” isn’t needed for survival. She says that the founder of PETA should go live in a forest–now THAT is where a fur coat may be needed for survival. She also says that, because the founder is diabetic and needs insulin, she is being hypocritical b/c the insulin comes from pigs. Another flawed argument: diabetes is a life-threatening condition. It is a very different situation than purely wanting a fur coat for fashionable purposes.

    Kelis goes on to say that minks and chinchillas are just like rodents and that rodents have overtaken our cities–implying that the animals that are turned into coats are the same ones that overtake our cities. The rodents that overtake our cities our RATS. Not minks and chinchillas. Anyone go up to Kelis and tell her that they can make her a coat out of rats’ fur–just see what she says. (She gon’ scream “hell naw! i don’t want that shit!)

    For her to say that there are other causes that are more worthwhile is VERY MUCH arrogant. Equally as arrogant as PETA saying no other cause is as important as theirs. Furthermore, Kelis says that fur is “warm as hell and feels glorious” and that faux fur is not luxurious. You try and tell me that that is not an arrogant thing to say. Her argument is also extremely ignorant, filled with false assumptions and extreme allegations.

    I’m happy that Kelis has an opinion even if it doesn’t agree with my own…I can care less about that. My problem is with how she tried to argue for her opinion. She made a terrible case for herself. Girl needs to do more research!

    Lastly–she called it a “perfectly good food chain.” I can talk about this for another long-ass post! Ain’t nothin “perfectly good” about a food chain that is directly linked to obesity, poverty, and economic turmoil in America and all over the world!

    Kelis is def right about sharing her opinion, as everyone should. She just needs to execute her argument better! As I said, both PETA and Kelis suck!

    @Sunny, “As I said, both PETA and Kelis suck!”

    All said & done.


  27. James D.

    as an artist kelis is dope , misunderstood, under rated and constantly bitten off of! she’s ahead of her time, and sometimes when ur like that your talent and efforts don’t translate to record sales, hell, look at all the wack, unoriginal “artists” out there selling hella records, crack sells alot too doesn’t make it good tho’
    i’m just sayin….


  28. king

    fuck peta and kelis
    dont get on us for wearing fur get on the ppl that make em and kelis need to get a hobby


  29. jenny

    kelis is a bitch like everyone who kills animals


  30. nicole

    i think kelis is overreacting… in diabetic and they dont make it from animals any more.. they make it from fake DNA! but anyways


  31. ron.e

    ignorance (plain & simple):

    “If I started wearing endangered animals like polar bear or orangutan then talk to me. (Which btw for the record I would not – I do believe in the preservation of endangered species)”

    …animals wouldn’t face extinction to begin with if they do not face unnecessary deaths! wearing fur when you can alternatively wear a down-filled jacket? look up canada goose, woman! she sounds like a single-mother in distress. no wonder nas cheated on her ass.


  32. Catie

    I’d have to disagree with Kelis on this one. She sounds incredibly selfish and ignorant on this rant. Chinchillas and things of that nature are still creatures that deserve to life, whether or not she likes them.


  33. Cilia

    I wouldn’t wear a fur coat anyways because most of them look tacky to me. But, you’re surely not going to get me to give up my chicken, sausage, and beef lol.


  34. heartbreak

    GO BITCH! They can not like it but throwin paint that shit aint coo! What if that gets in somebodies eye or some shit they better recognize!


  35. Jordyn

    this is why i love Kelis! She speaks her mind & doesn’t care what others think! Omg I can’t wait til’ her new album “Flesh Tones” comes out! I know its gonna be EPIC because its Kelis what else should I expect! Go’ Head Kelis!


  36. Joyams

    Im gonna download it because i won’t give money to aminals killers ahahaha!!!! Shut up next time bitch!!!


  37. LadySheamus

    PETA’s gotten out of hand. They act cultish now.


  38. snowqueen

    What a compassion free self centered hag.
    She talks such rubbish that it’s embarassing.
    All the human hardship causes these people usually cite as being more worthy are,(interestingly enough) usually perpetrated by humans.
    Animal suffering is on an unbelievable scale and if this hard faced old bag was to visit a fur farm/slaughter house and see the fear/terror and brutality she would clearly shrug her shoulders and say ‘so what’. What a fine example of a human being.
    Callous and cruel beyond words and also a talent free zone.
