    Comedienne Tiffany Haddish will not be getting any vegans or animal rights activists to join her crusade against police brutality. To stop "police killing black people," the "Girls Trip" star has vowed to wear fur every day.

    In a post on Instagram over the weekend, Haddish featured a photo of herself in a fur vest that was bequeathed to her by a fan, vowing to "wear it as much as possible" as some kind of Black Lives Matter statement.

    "I’mma wear it as much as possible. I don’t know if you guys know this about me, but I’m about to start protesting," Haddish said in the Instagram video. "I’mma wear fur every day until they stop killing black people. When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest."

    Knowing full well that PETA and the animal rights activist lobby will not appreciate the fur protest, Haddish took the bull by the horns (or grabbed the flower by its thorns).

    "So sorry, PETA!" Haddish unabashedly stated. "Don’t be mad at me. Be mad at the police," Haddish continued. "When they stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur… Because people are important, and so are the animals."

    Needless to say, the 39-year-old Haddish's newfound protest did not exactly sit well with certain animal lovers on social media. Music producer Russell Simmons, a staunch vegan, asked that Haddish reconsider her protest.

    "White supremacy is a disease that takes on many forms and has many symptoms," Simmons wrote in the comments. "The abuse of other beings will not address that… or heal ourselves. I love you Tiffany but I wish you would reconsider this route of protest."

    I'm NOT making this up.
    And the twitter world is apparently all a-twitter about it...

    Here's one link: Tiffany Haddish Vows To Wear Fur Every Day Until 'Police Stop Killing Black People'

    Does the horse hair on top of her head count as fur?

    That is fine but could she also keep wearing fur until police stop killing white people too? She is not being inclusive.

    How is PETA and BLM connected by wearing fur? This girl has way too much time on her hands or her mother dropped on her head one time too many.

    Yeah, it is weird. I guess peta controls the cops, so she points a gun at a fuzzy animal and tells peta to call off the cops, or I shoot this fuzzy animal. It doesn't make much sense but I have heard dumber.

    I like it. Bring back fur, however possible, and make trapping popular again.

    I think she is onto something there.

    I, too, am going to protest the killing of black people. I am going to drink bourbon every day until it stops!

    As soon as I see "Imma" I pretty much ignore anything that comes after it.

    It’s not ‘going to,’ that’s too white. It’s ‘gunna,’ which has the added benefit of having ‘gun’ in it.
