Justin Bieber Blasted Over $35,000 Designer Cats – Tells PETA To ‘Suck It’

Celebrity singer Justin Bieber has been slammed by PETA for buying two designer kittens instead of adopting an animal. In response, the star told the charity to ‘suck it’. 

The What Do You Mean singer posted a picture on Instagram of his two new Savannah cats named Sushi and Tuna – which reportedly cost $35,000 (around £28,000). 

‘Overpopulation crisis’ 

In a statement sent to People, Lisa Lange, Senior Vice President of PETA, said: “Justin Bieber could inspire his fans around the world to save a life by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter – rather than fuelling the dangerous demand for hybrid cats, contributing to the animal overpopulation crisis.

“… When it comes to helping animals, his stance so far is ‘I don’t care’.”

‘Go focus on real problems’

Bieber has responded to the criticism, stating: “PETA, go focus on real problems like poaching, and animal brutality.

“[You’re] tripping because I want a specific kind of cat? [You] weren’t tripping when I got my dog Oscar and he wasn’t a rescue… [must] every pet we get must be a rescue?

“I believe in adopting rescues but also think there are preferences and that’s what breeders are for.”
