Jay-Z Doesn't Like Raccoon-Dogs.
The latest trend in Hip Hop is to cop a Raccoon-Dog fur jacket. Last Month Diddy was blasted for having animal fur on his coats and yanked them from stores. Now Jay-Z is getting slammed for having fur in his clothing line.
The Humane Society says the "faux fur" on his Rocawear "Hunter" jackets is actually raccoon-dog fur, which is sometimes obtained by skinning the animal alive. Sean Combs used the same fur on one of his Sean John coats.
A Rocawear rep told PageSix, "We were not aware that our product included raccoon-dog materials. We have immediately instructed all manufacturers and licensees that no product can be produced using this fur. In addition we have removed those items from our Web site."
I think I saw a Raccoon-Dog eating a squirrel in my backyard yesterday. Sonofabitch.
