PETA disses Joe Namath’s fur coat
Not everyone was amused by Joe Namath’s fur coat. The football legend wore a coat worthy of Penny Lane in “Almost Famous,” and while many fans laughed and tweeted that the coat was the highlight of this year’s Super Bowl, PETA condemned Namath’s choice of outerwear.The animal rights group launched its first Twitter attack immediately after Namath appeared on air in his fur glory, asking him to consider faux fur next time.

Several PETA fans tweeted their dismay about Namath’s coat as well, asking him, “What did those animals ever do to you?” and calling his coat “disgusting.”
PETA later tweeted a gruesome photo of skinned animals, tweeting, “There’s a story behind your fur coat” to Namath.
