It’s hard to think of anyone having an issue with Reese Witherspoon, but the actress has found herself coming under fire by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals after she was seen carrying a python skin handbag.
In a statement that was sent to Reese after she was spotted carrying the Chloe bag, PETA said;
“No matter how much Reese paid for the bag, the animals paid a much higher price. Every year, millions of snakes are impaled on hooks or nailed to trees by their heads and skinned alive. We can’t imagine that she’d wish to contribute to this hidden suffering, especially for something as frivolous as a fashion accessory that can be replicated with no bloodshed.”
Yikes. No word yet on Reese’s response. What do you think about PETA’s stance here? Should Reese, who in 2006 was named one of PETA’s sexiest vegetarians of the year, be carrying a snake skin bag?
