Protests Fur Ban in NYC …
Our Fur, Our Right, Our Choice!!!

‘Love and Hip Hop’ star Safaree Samuels knows which hill he wants to die on — marching and screaming for his right to wear luxurious furs … animal abuse be damned.
Safaree was shouting at the top of his lungs in front of NY’s City Hall on Wednesday to protest a proposed ban on fur sales in Gotham. As you’d imagine, things got very heated … with Safaree’s pro-fur supporters clashing — at least verbally — with a slew of anti-fur protesters.
He marched and shouted, “Leave us alone! Stop picking on us. Our fur, our right!! Our choice, our right!!” But when anti-fur protesters reminded him of the rampant animal abuse behind the fur industry, Safaree’s retort was far from educated.
He said, “I didn’t do it. Go to China with that. This is America.”
Safaree’s also making his protest about race … claiming the fur sales ban is being done purely to target the black community.
“Fur ban is no different than laws targeting baggy pants that are done to hurt the black community #nofurban don’t mess with my drip” #NoFurBan @CoreyinNYC @bradlander @RLEspinal @HelenRosenthal @JustinBrannan

When he barked that people should be more concerned with police brutality against African-Americans, the intensity was cranked up — and Safaree unleashed a string of obscenities at the anti-fur groups.
His weakest argument might be that NYC is a fashion mecca, and therefore … MUST have fur.
Fact is, fur farming is already banned or very tightly regulated in several European countries, including the UK … home to London, another fashion capital.
Just sayin’ …
