PETA: Joe Namath’s Fur Coat An ‘Embarrassment’

Joe Namath

PETA released a statement ripping Joe Namath, the Super Bowl III-winning quarterback who performed the coin toss on Sunday, for wearing a fur coat to the game.

“The real embarrassment on Sunday was Joe Namath’s caveperson coat,” PETA said in a statement. “No matter what he spent on that eyesore, the animals who were trapped, bludgeoned, electrocuted, or skinned alive for their fur paid a lot more—the ultimate price, in fact—and viewers across the country agree that it was too high a price, as demonstrated by the outpouring of anti-fur messages that hit Twitter the second that Namath’s coat hit the screen.”
