R&B artists have a fondness for wearing fur but rapper and sometime designer P. Diddy is under fire for allegedly misleading style setters into thinking a jacket from his winter collection is animal friendly, when in fact it isn't.
The item in question, being sold at Macys, is advertised as having an "imitation rabbit fur collar" and is "nylon/faux fur/goose down".
The reality, apparently, is that the coat is made out of genuine fur.
The Humane Society Of The United States (HSUS) purchased the item believing it to follow their ethics regarding animals as fashion, only to find that the fur in question once belonged to a raccoon.
The society is now doing DNA testing on the fur to establish whether it is from a raccoon dog, a Chinese breed to dog whose coat resembles that of a raccoon.
If it is made certain that the design does involve an animal, Macys has agreed to take the offending item off its shelves. (source)
