Caged and deprived of everything that comes naturally to them, kicked, stomped on, bludgeoned, thrown to the ground, gassed, anally electrocuted, SKINNED ALIVE! Does this sound like an entertaining music video to you? This is Duran Duran’s latest video, “Girl Panic,” featuring five supermodels clad in fur, snakeskin, goat hair, feathers and leather.

I’ve always enjoyed Duran Duran’s music, so I was very disappointed to hear about their new video. C’mon guys this isn’t 1982, it’s 2012, surely you’ve heard about the extreme cruelties of fur production? The animals live in terrible conditions and are then killed in horrific ways. A typical fur coat requires the slaughter of 35 – 125 animals. Tragically, more than 50 million animals are killed for fur each year. Over 2 million of them are dogs and cats.

We also request you contact Duran Duran to ask them to promote compassion towards animals, rather than extreme cruelty in the name of vanity. We recommend you approach them in a respectful manner, so your message will be heard.
