VIDEO: Victoria Beckham targeted with gory PETA bloodbath attack video over her brand's use of leather

Tuesday 5 March 2024

Victoria Beckham has been subjected to a bloody animal rights campaign video protesting against her use of leather in her fashion designs.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) wrote to the former Spice Girl urging her to rethink her use of animal skins, and sent her a copy of its Bloodbath campaign video.

The film shows a group of fashionable young people hit a cow-shaped figure as body parts and organs fly in all directions as the group become drenched in blood.

The video concludes with the message: "Over 1 billion animals are killed for their skin every year. Don't be a part of the blood bath. Wear vegan."

A PETA spokesperson said they hoped the video would inspire Ms Beckham to "extend compassion to fellow mums by ending her use of animal skin, which come from separating desperate mothers from their babies".

It follows the group's disruption of the designer’s show at Paris Fashion Week where activists invaded a runway wearing T-shirts that read “turn your back on animal skins” and “animals aren’t fabric”.

Protesters also walked alongside models on the catwalk holding placards that read: “Viva vegan leather”.

The group urged Beckham to introduce a vegan 'leather' known as Mirum it claims is better for the environment and cruelty free.

The group have re-targeted Beckham after her brand banned the use of exotic furs and skins in its clothes.

PETA said the policy does not go far enough, arguing that the use of leather in Beckham's designs is just as cruel to animals.

A spokesperson said: "Applauding her label’s policy against fur and exotic skins, PETA has written to Victoria Beckham to share a powerful new video that asks viewers to open their eyes to the cruelty of the leather trade."
