PETA slams Justin Bieber for buying two exotic kittens for USD 35000; here's how the singer reacted
Justin Bieber was slammed by PETA for purchasing two exotic Savannah kittens - Sushi and Tuna - for $35000. Read below to know how the I Don't Care singer reacted to PETA's questions.
Justin Bieber has been slammed by PETA for buying two exotic Savannah kittens for $35000. It was towards the end of August 2019 when Justin and Hailey Baldwin bought the two kittens, who they named Sushi and Tuna. While one kitten was purchased for $20000, the other kitten was purchased for $15000. Lisa Lange, PETA Senior Vice President told People magazine that instead of inspiring the Beliebers all around the world to save a life by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter, the 25-year-old singer is instead "fueling the dangerous demand for hybrid cats, contributing to the animal overpopulation crisis, and proving that when it comes to helping animals, his stance so far is 'I don’t care.'"
Not taking the issue lightly, Justin took to his Instagram Stories to react to the slamming by PETA. After telling the organisation to s**k it, Bieber wrote, "PETA go focus on real problems. Like poaching, and animal brutality. Ur tripping because I want a specific kind of cat? U weren't tripping when I got my dog Oscar and he wasn't a rescue.. every pet we get must be a rescue? I believe in adopting rescues by also think there are preferences and that's what breeders are for."
In conclusion, Bieber wrote, "PETA go help with all of the plastic in the ocean and leave my beautiful cats alone @kittysushiandtuna."
