Dakota Johnson slams PETA for fashion campaign

PETA, a non-profit organization also known as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, criticizes the actress Dakota Johnson for her participation in the recent Gucci campaign.

The 33-year-old Gucci model showed off her new 1961 Jackie handbags in a shoot for Gucci, some of which are made from python and crocodile skin, which the fashion brand shared on social media on January 10.

On the brand’s official website, Gucci proudly states that the bags, which range in price from $4,000 to more than $30,000, are authentic.

On the listing for the Jackie 1961 Small Python Bag, the description states: “The Jackie 1961 is presented in python, the rare leather draws attention to its historic crescent silhouette and piston hardware.”

In response to Gucci’s use of genuine animal skin and Johnson’s association with the brand, PETA wrote a scathing letter addressed to the actress, which posted TMZ.

Jessica Shotorbanidirector of Celebrity Outreach for PETA, described in horrifying detail how abattoirs in Indonesia, which allegedly supply skins to Gucci for its products, kill the reptiles, which has fueled a recent investigation.
