Music Legends Duran Duran Promote Cruelty Over Compassion
Caged and deprived of everything that comes naturally to them, kicked, stomped on, bludgeoned, thrown to the ground, gassed, electrocuted, SKINNED ALIVE! Does this sound like an entertaining music video to you? This is Duran Duran's latest video, "Girl Panic," featuring five supermodels clad in fur, snakeskin, goat hair, feathers and leather.
A person that worked on the video and helped source the clothing confirmed that all of the fur garments appearing in the video are made from actual animal fur. Information on the furs is also available in the printed UK version of Harper's BAZAAR, December 2011 issue. We have reached out to Duran Duran, politely asking the band to stop promoting the use of animal fur and inviting them to participate in an IDA anti-fur public service announcement. If they respond, we will post an update immediately.
Please contact Duran Duran to request that they promote compassion towards animals, rather than extreme cruelty in the name of vanity. We recommend you approach them in a respectful manner, so your message will be heard. Click here for links to their contact info on our blog.
