Miranda Lambert is making headlines again, but the reason has nothing to do with her ex-husband.
The star is riling animal rights supporters and her fans with a photo posted to Instagram of herself posing in a fur coat, one of two heirlooms she received as a gift from her grandmother for Christmas.
“‘I’m so fancy… You already know,'” she wrote, quoting a 2014 breakout hit by Iggy Azalea. “My Nonny gave me two of her fur coats! I definitely know where I got my love for DIAMONDS, FUR and WHISKEY! #familytradition #grandmastreasures #besthandmedownever #wandathewanderer #bringitwinter.”
Lambert also shared a photo of her and her grandmother. “Her name embroidered inside is priceless. A family heirloom I will cherish forever. I’m so thankful for her and all the things I have learned from her. Nonny is strong, beautiful, feisty and most of all, loving. #grandmastreasures #diamondsfurandwhiskey #wandathewanderer”
The 32-year old and her mom co-founded the MuttNation Foundation, a charity which aims to “end animal cruelty, neglect and homelessness” and supports animal shelters and promotes pet adoption events and spay and neuter campaigns. PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange responded to Lambert’s recent photos with a statement released to E! News.
“We had higher hopes. Since Miranda rescues dogs, we always thought she could see that whether fur comes from a mink, a fox, or a dog or a cat in China, the source is always a gentle animal who did not want to die,” Lange said.
Many of Lambert’s fans also had plenty to say about Lambert’s new affection for fur.
“Miranda I love your music!” one person wrote. “But I HATE the fact that you support such cruel industries such as fur and hunting!”
“I’m really surprised that you would promote such a cruel industry. I thought you were an animal lover but obviously I was wrong,” another person said.
Lambert has yet to respond to the criticism.
