Beyonce and Jay-Z have been criticized by PETA for their respective custom-shoe designs which are made from nine different animals.
PETA, known for their controversial marketing techniques and speaking out against celebrities, have found new targets in super couple Jay-Z and Beyonce. The two were scolded by PETA for their custom-made kicks that utilize nine different animals. The couple each got a pair done by PMK Customs.
Hov's model, called the "Brooklyn Zoo Jordan I," is made of alligator, stingray, python, ostrich, crocodile, lizard, elephant, boa, and calf. Bey's design, "King Bey Isabel Marant Sneaker Wedge" uses ostrich, calf, anaconda, crocodile, and stingray.
PETA released the statement, "These custom-made kicks come with a high price – and it’s paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed."
