Justin Bieber Slammed By PETA For Spending $35,000 On Exotic Hybrid Kittens
Justin Bieber recently bought two new kittens, whom he named Sushi and Tuna. The kittens are Savannah kittens and cost $20,000 and $15,000 respectively, according to People. PETA, the animal rights organization, spoke out on Thursday and slammed Bieber, 25, for his decision to purchase the expensive kittens, claiming he does not care about helping animals.
PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange ssai, “Justin Bieber could inspire his fans around the world to save a life by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter — rather than fueling the dangerous demand for hybrid cars, contributing to the animal overpopulation crisis, and proving that when it comes to helping animals, his stance so far is ‘I don’t care.'”
Bieber responded to the backlash on Instagram, posting a screenshot of an article and writing, “PETA can suck it” over the photo. He continued to post on his Instagram story, “PETA go focus on real problems. Like poaching, and animal brutality. Ur tripping because I want a specific kind of cat? U weren’t tripping when I got my dog Oscar and wasn’t a rescue..every pet we get must be a rescue? I believe in adopting rescues but also think there are preferences and that’s what breeders are for.”
He finished his response with another post to his story saying, “PETA go help with all of the plastic in the ocean, and leave my beautiful cats alone.” He tagged the Instagram account for his cats, @kittysushiandtuna.
