Kanye West and Amber Rose's floor-length lynx pelts at the Men's Fashion Week leads PETA Vice President to comment 'he and his girlfriend look like pathetic creatures from a shabby roadside zoo.'

A top official at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has slammed controversial rapper as a "pathetic idiot" for donning a fur coat during Men's Fashion Week in Paris, France. The "Stronger" hitmaker and his model girlfriend showed off floor-length lynx pelts during the annual event last week, January 22, - but their fashion choices have made them prime targets for PETA campaigners.

PETA Vice President Dan Matthews says, "Kanye can't help making himself look like an idiot, whether at an awards show or a fashion show." He adds, "He and his girlfriend look like pathetic creatures from a shabby roadside zoo."

West notoriously hit the headlines at last year's MTV Video Music Awards when he stormed the stage to protest 's win for Best Video.
