Hope that fur is fake. Even if it's not, this day and age I hate seeing people even wearing faux fur. If it's real fur, shame on you AL.

Looks real to me and other jackets that he's worn have obvious real fur on them or are made of fur. Not good! People are outraged by those that wear real fur, nowadays.

I wonder what Brian would say if it was badger fur. And this is what Adam thinks of wearing fur.

I've never heard of anyone wearing badger fur, before, or at least not the kind of badger from the UK. I wonder what Brian has to say about this at all! Fur is part of an animal's body, worn just for fun and looks. Unlike meat, which is eaten, animals die for their skin and their bodies are discarded like garbage. There is no need for that in this world, other than people like eskimos who have to wear it in order to survive the brutal cold where they live. Animals die so people can wear their skin!

Thanks for posting it. I had already read it. I don't know whether to roll my eyes, use a shocked smiley or none at all. I guess I'll go for none.

I can't tell if it's real or not, but IMO it looks awful. And he wore it to the finale of WWRY where Brian was playing at the show. Yes, I'd be appalled if it's real fur. FFS, AL wouldn't be that insensitive to wear real fur...would he?

No clue if he'd be insensitive or not, however, this statement he made is definitely that!


“I know this is the most un-PC way to put it, but I didn’t kill the thing so I don’t see why I can’t wear it.”

Whoa, there. There are worse phrases than un-PC to describe Mr. Glambert’s attitude.

But wait, there’s more. If you can eat it, might as well wear it.

“It’s like we eat meat, I don’t like cruelty toward animals so anything that can be done to prevent that, but I think fur looks great.”

Yes, we are aware what Freddie wore...decades ago. This world is not the same as it was back then, people know or should know better than to wear real fur.
It's am awful look on anyone, I passed comments on his clothing in the past, but this is the worst look ever.

Oh, so he didn't kill it, so it makes it okay for him to wear fur :sarcasm:. I'm appalled.
I'm appalled too that anyone would once again bring up Freddie wearing fur. I'm not saying it was right, but things are not the same now as it was then. Fashion wise, and conscious wise, I guess AL missed that :roll:

Adam's worn real fur for years, he loves it and doesn't care what his fans think. Nothing new there.

But man, what a horrible outfit. Nothing matches or looks good together. He looks like an old woman in a big fur stole from the 1940s. Is he trying to be retro or something? Who wears jackets with huge fur collars at the beginning of summer? Ugh.

Should we be as outraged about people wearing leather as we are about wearing fur?

I'm waiting for the outrage when Adam comes out on the Chicago stage wearing nothing but very short white shorts! :biggrin:

I guess it would depend on the leather. If the animals were being killed just for their skin I would say yes, but if they were using all of the animal I would say no. I eat meat and I wear leather products, but I would NEVER wear fur. I wouldn't even wear fake fur because it sends the wrong message IMO.

Morrissey is a huge animal rights activist and he said he finally had to start wearing leather shoes.

"I find shoes difficult to be ethical about - one just can't seem to avoid leather. One is trapped, ultimately."

Adam in the white shorts? Oh man I would even pay to see that. :lol: He barely lets you see his cankles.
