Recently, Sir Paul told PETA campaigners :
"I think it's very sad. Animals have to be killed and their lives are taken, often in the most disgusting ways for you to have your coat. So that's what I would say to P. Diddy and J. Lo - you look good enough anyway baby. I understand all too well the attraction, when you first earn money, of wanting to show off. You want chinchilla dripping off you, you want jewelry. The trouble is, the difference between fur and jewelry is that fur hurts someone."
McCartney admitted that he was guilty of wearing fur in the past:
"Look at early pictures of me in the film Help and I've got this black fur coat on that my wife Linda liked because it was such a cool coat, or so it seemed at the time. I remember asking the salesperson, 'What is this?' and he said, 'It's nutria'. I had no idea what he meant."
