    Make it work, Tim.

    I was doing ok until about 1.45. That is seriously fucked up. Why do they need to do it that way?

    They don't need to, obviously, but given that nobody is willing to take a closer look at conditions of the fur industry, they're getting away with it.

    Most people simply don't want to know. I refuse to believe that even most fur-wearers would be ok with the way those animals are tortured.

    Kudos to Tim for raising awareness. I think the contrast between his civilized/reassuring manner and the truly shocking images works quite well.

    I can't watch it, but I'm so glad Tim is doing this! People need to be educated about the fur industry and stop using fur!

    This is why I hate people like J. Lopez, Sharon Stone, Kid Rock, etc. so much. They are aware of how fur is obtained, and they simply don't give a shit. I just don't understand how anyone could condone this torture and abuse.

    I can't even click on the video I would never be able to sleep. I cannot even watch the commercials on TV for the abused animals makes me cry every time.

    Oh, I won't watch the video. I made the mistake years ago.

    What's crazy is, JLo has apparently watched these videos. I don't get it.

    ^^Yes...or so it's been said. She agreed to watch the video and then make her decision about wearing fur. Obviously, she has made her decision.

    I applaud his effort, but Nina Garcia has a chapter in her book on fur and Michael Kors is notorious for using dog fur (I think he was forced to discontinue this), rabbit fur, etc in his designs... I hope they all get on board for this. The fur industry propagates unnecessary suffering of innocent animals for the sake of vanity.

    I can appreciate anybody trying to educate the public in regards to how animals are treated.

    We treat animals poorly, whether it is for food or vanity.

    I'm an animal lover, but I still eat meat, and I have no problem seeing somebody wear fur.

    Humans suck sometimes, but we each make our own decisions.

    I just wanted to point out that even if you don't wear fur, animals do suffer abuse and death to provide for us.
