PETA targets Jessica Simpson over snake skin

To Jessica Simpson, fashion is only skin deep!

PETA is calling out the Price of Beauty star, 29, for wearing exotic skins. The animal rights organization is also criticizing fellow snake-skin lover Catherine Zeta Jones as well as Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton for having scales in their ensembles.

In an effort to get A-listers to stop, Joaquin Phoenix is hosting a new PETA video — one of his first video appearances in months — on the skin trade that exists with such animals as alligators, lizards and snakes. (Watch the video here. Warning: the content is graphic and disturbing.)

“Did you know that mother snakes keep their eggs warm by wrapping their bodies around the eggs and then shivering to generate heat?” Phoenix, 35, says in the video short. “Exotic animals are mostly unknown to us, and so is what they suffer before being turned into belts and bags?”

Phoenix — who had fans scratching their heads last year when he began making bizarre public appearances, claiming that he quit acting and was becoming a rapper — isn’t the only star PETA is thanking for his work for the ethical treatment of animals.

The organization commends that British comedian — and vegetarian! — Russell Brand for opting to wear fake snake.

PETA tells Us that they are sending their latest video to Simpson, Beckham, Parker and the other stars cited in the hopes they will change their fashion choices.

Arthritis in your pooch can be a huge hassle that many people never even think of in senior dogs.

Darling, you’re the reason why many don’t like PETA or take PETA seriously. PETA and their supporters say crazy disgusting crap like that. Because they don’t agree with you think they should die? Get over yourself and get some help while you’re at it!
