Anyone who watched the coin flip of the Super Bowl couldn’t miss Joe Namath who was covered in a pile of animal fur that was apparently a coat. PETA released a statement expressing their feeling’s in a statement.
“The real embarrassment on Sunday was Joe Namath’s caveperson coat,” PETA said in a statement. “No matter what he spent on that eyesore, the animals who were trapped, bludgeoned, electrocuted, or skinned alive for their fur paid a lot more—the ultimate price, in fact—and viewers across the country agree that it was too high a price, as demonstrated by the outpouring of anti-fur messages that hit Twitter the second that Namath’s coat hit the screen.”-ProFootballTalk.com
Caveperson coat? That’s probably not the most professional statement that they could have released, but they made their point clear. They want Joe Namath to once again stop using fur coats as he did in his playing days. Although the statement was in my opinion unprofessional the coat was pretty excessive.
