PETA slams "pathetic" Kanye West

Kanye West has been branded a "pathetic idiot" by a leading PETA official after he was snapped wearing a fur coat.

Dan Matthews, vice president of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organisation, blasted the rapper following reports that he donned the jacket during Men's Fashion Week in Paris.

The 'Love Lockdown' star and girlfriend Amber Rose were both allegedly seen sporting floor-length lynx pelts during the event last week.

Matthews posted his comment on PETA's official webiste, writing: "Kanye can't help making himself look like an idiot, whether at an awards show or a fashion show. He and his girlfriend look like pathetic creatures from a shabby roadside zoo."
