Target: Manny Mashouf, Bebe CEO
Goal: Stop selling fur-embellished products
The clothing store Bebe continues to sell cruelty-laden fur products despite knowing the horrors involved. Animals used for fur suffer heinously at the hands of callous individuals who see them as nothing more than profitable items rather than living, breathing, sensitive creatures. Please tell Bebe to ditch fur and let them know you won’t be shopping at their stores until they do.
Animals on fur farms are forced to suffer their entire lives in filthy, cramped cages often sustaining painful injuries before they are even slaughtered. Animals are packed tightly into cages made of rusty wire, causing severe, painful wounds to these delicate creatures. They are then brutally slaughtered using the cheapest methods available. These include anal electrocution, suffocation, and poisoning. Often animals are not adequately killed before being skinned, leaving them to suffer an agonizing death after having the flesh ripped off their living bodies.
Bebe is aware of the cruel sources of their fur products and continues to embellish items with this horrific decoration. Please tell Bebe that fur is no longer necessary and insist they immediately stop using fur in all their fashion lines. Tell Bebe that until they cease this despicable practice of adorning products with cruelty-laden fur, you will not be shopping at their stores.
Dear Manny Mashouf,
I was deeply saddened to learn that Bebe continues to sell fur embellished products despite knowing the horrific circumstances required to obtain this barbaric decoration. I am writing to you today to urge you to discontinue the use of all fur in Bebe products. Until Bebe is fur-free, I will not be shopping at Bebe stores.
In order to adorn a hat, scarf, or purse, animals suffer heinously and needlessly their entire lives in filthy, cramped enclosures. Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives in crowded wire enclosures, often causing the animals serious, painful wounds. These animals suffer unthinkable deaths that involve the cheapest killing methods available. Animals are often anally electrocuted, suffocated, or poisoned. These poor creatures sometimes wake up to find themselves being skinned alive, forcing them to endure a horrific, agonizing death.
In our modern world, fur products are simply unnecessary. Synthetic versions are available and are equally luxurious when compared to real fur. Faux fur is also a cheaper and humane alternative to the real thing. Please immediately announce that bebe will no longer be selling cruel fur embellished products. Until Bebe proves to be fur-free I will not be shopping at their stores, nor will my friends and family members.
