    PETA is pissed at Rihanna for wearing an aqua-colored, feathered top as she launched her new fragrance Reb'l Fleur in London last month.

    PETA spokeswoman Sandra Smiley told Daily Star that "Rihanna is flaunting stolen property, in this case feathers possibly plucked right off their rightful owners' backs. She has shown little regard for foxes, cows and reptiles, now she's adding birds to the list of species exploited for her dubious looks. Feathers are often ripped off chickens, geese, ostriches and emus in live plucking. This can result in gaping wounds that are sewn up with a needle and thread without anesthetic."

    Smiley continued, "We keep hoping that Rihanna, a victim of violence herself, will learn to open her heart and start empathizing with the suffering of others. That includes the animals who are beaten, gassed, electrocuted and poisoned to be turned into fashion accessories."

    Do you think PETA's impassioned plea with cause Rihanna to ditch fur?
