PETA to Aretha: Lose the Fur, Keep Your House

3/26/2008 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

PETA is trying to help out Aretha Franklin with that whole foreclosure mess she's in. The animal rights group has written a letter to the fur-ocious Queen of Soul offering to pay her $19,000 tax bill if she promises to never wear fur again and donate her unwanted furs to PETA - like Mariah Carey and Kim Cattrall have done.
Peta to Aretha - forget about those furs
Aretha should know, fur is definitely out of fashion. Hasn't she seen all those shots of Paris and Britney getting out of cars?

Another stupid story by TMZ's uneducated chimpanzees    

I find it almost unbelievable that an Icon like Aretha Franklin, who's still out there performing AND isn't a financial dumbass & all around wierdo like those genetic mutants the Jacksons would have problems coming up with $19,000 to pay a tax bill. Someone please explain this to me...

Hey you guys need to have respect for Aretha, don't say nasty things about her. She is part of the old school, the real talented people. Show some freakin respect, she has done her job in this business and succeeded, give her respect. And plain and simple the damn animals are already dead, who cares. Quit spending all your money on animals and helping them, when humans need way more help.

PETA kills animals too...pets in need of homes. In fact, 97% of them in 2006. Kill shelters have far better records! Maybe people would take them seriously, if their hands weren't covered in blood too.

Say "no" to fur, and PETA!!!

I vote for electricuting Aretha and skinning her alive so I can wear her skin. I mean I could get at least 10 coats out of her.

Re: Showing Aretha some respect....
The 'damn animals' are killed to meet a demand, one which old Franklin Fur Butt is promoting - albeit in a really sweaty and fugly way.

People shouldn't eat animals, it's only acceptable to take over their habitats for our veggie gardens and fruit orchards.
