Sean “Diddy” Combs Jackets Dog Fur Problem
Sean “Diddy” Combs has landed himself in hot water with dog lovers all over the world.
Recently it was discovered that Sean “Diddy” Combs’ company Sean John has been selling hooded jackets made of dog fur via Macy’s.
An investigation conducted by the Humane Society shockingly revealed that the clothes were falsely being advertised as faux fur by Macy’s as it turned out the two styles were carrying “raccoon dog” which can be described as followed :
The Raccoon dog also known as the Magnut or Tanuki, is a member of the Canidae family and is indigenous to east Asia.The raccoon dog is named for its resemblance to the raccoon (Procyon lotor), to which it is not closely related.The raccoon dog populations have declined in recent years due to hunting, fur trade and fur trapping, urbanization, an increase of animals associated with human civilization such as pets and abandoned animals, and diseases that may be transmitted between them.
The animal protection organization president and CEO Wayne Pacelle said:
“First these jackets were falsely advertised as faux fur, and then it turned out that the fur came from a type of dog.”
Orlando Veras, a spokesman at Macy’s added:
“We have a long-standing policy against the selling of any dog or cat fur.This policy is clearly communicated to all suppliers.”
Sean “Diddy” Combs released his own saying:
“I was completely unaware of the nature of this material, but as soon as we were alerted, the garments were pulled off the Macy’s floor and Web site. I have instructed our outerwear licensee to cease the production of any garments using this material immediately.”
Macy’s has removed all of the coats from their stores and website.
