Dr. Dre Blasted By PETA

Superproducer Dr. Dre has been criticized by PETA officials over a new limited edition version of his popular Beats By Dre headphones. The limited edition sets feature Oscar De La Renta-designed headphones that are wrapped in fox fur.

PETA representative Michelle Cho issued a letter to Dre advocating for the headphones to be discontinued.

âWe wanted to get in touch to urge you to keep fur and exotic-animal skins out of your Beats by Dre designs,â Michelle Cho wrote. âFoxes, minks, rabbits, and other animalsâincluding cats and dogsâare bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, strangled with wire nooses, drowned, and even skinned alive for their pelts.â

âYou have a tremendous amount of influence on young people,â Cho continued. âWonât you please consider using your platform to advocate kindness toward animals by pledging never to design with real fur and exotic skins?â
