Rihanna blasted for wearing snakeskin boots
Rihanna has been blasted by animal rights campaigners PETA for wearing a pair of snakeskin boots during a night out in London.
The 'We Found Love' star was snapped by photographers with the thigh-high black and white boots, apparently made from reptile hide, a fashion choice which has angered officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
A spokesman said: "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.
"Wearing reptile skin is creepy and callous, and it makes her look even more out of touch. She and Lady Gaga seem so desperate to be freaks instead of recognised for their talents that you have to wonder if they realise that they are being laughed at."
