Anti-fur pro­tes­tors rally against Drake

Thornhill Post - - News -

Soon-to-be Bri­dle Path res­i­dent Aubrey Gra­ham, a.k.a. Drake, has re­cently found him­self on the wrong side of Peo­ple for the Eth­i­cal Treat­ment of An­i­mals (PETA) be­cause of his part­ner­ship with Canada Goose, the pop­u­lar out­er­wear com­pany that uses goose down and coy­ote fur. Af­ter Drake an­nounced, over live stream Twitch, that he had em­braced the veg­e­tar­ian life­style, PETA sent him a gift bas­ket ac­com­pa­nied by a let­ter com­mend­ing his de­ci­sion but urg­ing him to re­con­sider his Canada Goose af­fil­i­a­tion. On Feb. 28, demon­stra­tors with signs bear­ing graphic im­ages of fur farms and grisly home­made props met to cre­ate an “anti-fur flash mob” to protest fur and the 6 God him­self. Ac­tivists threw his al­bums in the trash and tweeted at him with the hash­tag #DrakeFurShame.

SILLY GOOSE Drake re­cently came un­der fire from an­i­mal rights ac­tivists.
