Leona Lewis Calls Britain Biggest Store's Bosses 'Evil'
Singer Leona Lewis has branded bosses of Britain's biggest department store Harrods "backwards" - for refusing to ban fur from their shelves. The "Bleeding Love" hitmaker turned down a $1.6 million offer to launch the London store's summer sale in 2008 over its policy on stocking animal products.
And she's still seething that the company's bosses have not taken action to remove animal pelts from shelves, despite her public snub. Vegetarian Lewis tells Britain's Smooth Radio West Midlands, "Yeah they did offer me money to open the sale but I said no because they stock fur."
"The X Factor" 's third series winner adds, "They're one of the few places that still do it. I just think it's so backwards, it's very evil and cruel. I definitely stand up for what I believe in when it comes to animal rights."
In early February, Lewis convinced organizers of the BRIT Awards to remove foie gras from the event's menu after threatening to boycott the ceremony.
