Michelle Obama in anti-fur ad

2010-01-06 22:12
Washington - The fur is flying over a new ad campaign by an animal rights group the White House says is using first lady Michelle Obama's image without her permission.

The president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Ingrid Newkirk, said her organisation wouldn't have sought Mrs Obama's consent for the anti-fur ad because it knows that she can't make such an endorsement.

Peta included the first lady in its Washington ad campaign based on White House confirmation that she does not wear fur.

Mrs Obama appears in the ad with celebrities Oprah Winfrey, Carrie Underwood and Tyra Banks - three others who have shunned fur. The ads are appearing in Washington's Metro stations, magazines and on Peta's website.
