PETA Is Not Happy With Reese Witherspoon

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?

    PETA needs to euthanized themselves and save everybody the grief they cause. They already have refrigeration units they use to keep the animals they’ve killed. They also need to change their name to The Unethical Treatment of Humans.
    Any video PETA makes is doctored already been discussed on 60 Minutes and other documentaries, keep up with the times.

    Considering southern Florida is overrun with Burmese pythons, which are a non-native and invasive species, this seems not only appropriate, but a possible solution to the problem.

    PETA, on the other hand, there is no cure for.

    PETA do you wear shoes on your feet?? so what do you think gave their lives so that you can wear shoes on your feet and wool coats on your back. It’s a person choise what they wear and pay for.

    PETA seems to forget that this is evolution and a means for people to survive. Not everyone has to be or needs to be a vegeterian. People like myself really don’t care what PETA thinks just about everything you wear or have in your home in some way or the other has to or once was a living thing. So PETA get over yourself.
