Serena opens her closet too controversy

Serena Williams opens her closet to a storm of controversy

Tennis ace Serena Williams has opened up her closet in Palm Beach, Florida, to VH1 cameras - and upset animal rights activists in the process by revealing she owns a mink coat she never wears.

The sportswoman-turned-fashion queen showed off her huge collection of designer clothes and footwear as part of VH1 show Vogue Fashion Superstars.

But her donning of a white mink jacket has enraged animal rights group People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), who are calling Williams insensitive.

Serena boasted, "This is my first mink. I thought, 'I live in Florida, I'm never going to wear this,' and that's why I bought white because it'll work. I look like a pimp."

A PETA spokesman says, "It's shocking to see Serena crowing about a fur jacket she never wears. She should never have bought it in the first place."

Meanwhile, Williams admitted she's running out of closet space because she refuses to throw out old outfits and she's always off on shopping sprees.

She added, "I've somehow convinced myself that I don't have any clothes, so lately I've been shopping a lot.

"I collect panties, I love the Fendi bags and Gucci bags - you have to have a Gucci bag. There are Dolce suits everywhere you look and I love my old Valentino."

This is the one where she declared: I love Fendi. But, who doesn't love Fendi."

Oh well. That's disappointing. I agree with PETA, that was "insensitive".

Do you eat chicken? what about the poor chickens housed together in wire cages where they can't move? still eat chicken though?

Do you wear leather? what about the poor animals that died to make your belts and shoes and leather pants?


i swear if youre not a vegan please stop being such a hypocrite.

this is all so incredibly silly...

..notice everything the PETA types get pissy about such as furs, foie gras, SUVs are all thing they can't afford. PETA is nothing more than organized envy by a collection of neurotic losers. They just want to deny others pleasures.. modern-day Puritains is a more apt desription.

Well said! Except the "puritans" part! They are anything but!

JESUS

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

...Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28

Haha.. I was using the definition of a Puritan by HL Mencken:

A puritan is a person who has an overwhelming suspicion that somewhere, someone is having fun.

I'm guessing you're part of the fur industry?

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

Bullcrap! I guess these animal rights nutcases didnt watch the Little Kim episode (They surely wouldnt be clowing Serena if they saw what she had in her closet). What about Lebron James modeling mink at a Monday night Cleveland Browns game? Guess they didnt say much about that

Aren't these the same people who put out an ad on Clay Aiken saying Neutering worked for Clay (or something like that).. All because he said when he was a teen he ran over a cat...He also said it haunts him but they don't care about that.. Some of them are :retard:
