Washington, Jun 12: US First Lady Michelle Obama has pledged never to wear fur. According to the Washington Times, a day after French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy told PETA that she no longer wears real fur, Obama made her announcement.
"Mrs Obama does not wear fur," US magazine quoted her deputy press secretary, Semonti Mustaphi, as saying. Bruni-Sarkozy was targeted by PETA after she was photographed wearing what appeared to be fur. However, unlike her, Obama wasn't targeted.
"We've never written to Michelle Obama about this issue because we have always known her to be fur-free," said Amanda Schinke, media campaigns coordinator for PETA.
