Please Join IDA and Animal Aid in Asking the President to Drop Anna Wintour

    1. Petition by

      In Defense of Animals

Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, is the worst possible choice for President Barack Obama to nominate as an ambassador to either the United Kingdom or France.

Wintour has endorsed the egregiously cruel fur industry for decades. Wintour shamelessly promotes fur in every issue of Vogue and she often insists that the young designers she mentors use fur. Anna Wintour is directly responsible for the killing of millions of animals. Each year over 50 million animals, including millions of dogs and cats, are killed for their fur worldwide.  

Wintour also has a notoriously noxious personality. She is known to be such a tyrant that her nickname is “Nuclear Wintour.” The main character in The Devil Wears Prada is based on her. Many of Wintour’s former staffers agree that the Cruella de Vil-esque character is pretty close to Wintour herself.

Anna Wintour’s lack of compassion and open support of animal cruelty make her a particularly poor choice to represent Americans in either the United Kingdom or France. All three of these countries are nations of animal lovers. Please ask the President to drop Wintour from the list of possible ambassadors.

      Animals are living things although many people forget that fact these days. One such person being Anna Wintour, who has no sympathy towards millions of animals being tortured and killed for the fur she so actively promotes in her lavish lifestyle. She is a role model of no sorts and such a person should not represent anything.

      People who make money through animal abuse are not fit to be ambassadors. Using fur in fashion is barbaric and should be banned.

      If she comes to France my cat rescue charity will be closely watching her every move! Apart from having no diplomatic experience her views on animal rights are despicable. We don't want a Nuclear Wintour here!!!
