PM Boris Johnson urged to ban animal fur

Published: 2021-03-01

LONDON – A letter signed by 50 British celebrities has been sent to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, urging that the sale of real animal fur be banned.

Actress Dame Judy Dench, Queen guitarist Brian May and comedian Ricky Gervais are amongst the group that’s pledged its allegiance to animal welfare NGO Humane Society International’s (HSI) #FurFreeBritain campaign.

The organisation’s executive director, Claire Bass, said: “This letter from some of the country’s top celebrities proudly backing a ban on fur cruelty sends a clear message to Boris Johnson that Britain must no longer be an accomplice in the suffering of millions of animals for frivolous fur fashion. When the selling stops, the suffering will too.”
