PETA slams Chris Brown for wearing 'ugly violent' fur coat

FUR LOVER: Chris Brown with girlfriend Karrueche Tran (centre) and their friend Christina Milian

R&B SINGER Chris Brown and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran have been slammed by an animal rights organisation for wearing matching fur coats to a fashion show.

The musician and his model partner were spotted on the front row with singer friend Christina Milian at the Michael Costello runway show at New York Fashion Week in what appeared to be giant fur coats.

Tran posted a photo on Instagram of her and her "bae" in the matching furs.

Since uploading the photo, which has over 125,000 'likes', animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) accused Chris of "ugly violence" over his wardrobe choice.

PETA US senior vice president Lisa Lange described the blue-haired Loyal star as "out of touch" for donning the large coat.

In a statement, Lange said: "There are few things more out of touch than draping yourself in the skins of animals who were beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their fur.

"Chris Brown's furs are just more of the same from him: ugly violence."
