Sia Asks Kanye West To Go Fur Free

It appears as if the new Yeezy Season 5 line includes what appear to be several large fur coats and some fur accessories. The fashion show took place at NYC's Pier 59 Studios on February 15th, with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Anna Wintour and Sofia Richie in attendance — it seems as if fur was one of the many materials on display.
Kanye didn't make an appearance at the end of his runway show — but there was much focus on the new clothing, which featured phrases like "Lost Hills" and "Calabasas". The event was the usual Kanye West spectacle of style, music and fashion, with a projection showing the models on a big screen before they took to the runway.
In response to the event Sia took to Twitter and wrote; "Dear @kanyewest would you consider going fur free? This is the reality of fur for fashion — it's so sad." She included a YouTube video called 'Under the Fur Coats: Rabbits' Screams of Death' in her message to West. You can see the tweet below — be warned, it is not easy viewing.
Just last June, Sia addressed West's wife, Kim Kardashian with the same plea, again sharing the same video on her Twitter account.
When Azealia Banks posted a video cleaning out a wardrobe covered in what appeared to be chicken remains, last December Sia tweeted, "Sacrificing animals for your gain is the wackest s*** I've ever heard. Get ahead by being awesome, kind and working hard."
Earlier this week Sia, also shared a new lyric video for "Move Your Body". You should check that out, and follow instructions:
