Last week, The Humane Society of the United States revealed that coats being advertised as "faux fur'' were in fact real. One line was the Sean John Hooded Snorkel Jacket: $237.99 at Macys.com. The jackets allegedly were made with imitation rabbit fur. But HSUS investigators found labels in them reading, "genuine raccoon fur."
Sean Combs just sent the following statement to HSUS. Good for him.
"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 website. I have instructed our outwear licensee to cease the production of any garments using this material immediately. I appreciate the tireless work that the Humane Society does and would like to thank them for bringing attention to this issue."
