Fans and PETA blasted Miranda Lambert for an Instagram picture that showed her in a fur coat.
Here’s “Somethin’ Bad” for Miranda Lambert’s reputation as a friend to the furry.
The self-described animal lover’s fans slammed her as a hypocrite after she shared a photo Saturday of a luxurious Christmas present — a sleek, floor-length fur coat passed down from her grandmother.
“‘I’m so fancy… You already know’ my Nonny gave me two of her fur coats!” the country crooner quoted Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” in an Instagram photo flaunting the furs. “I definitely know where I got my love for DIAMONDS, FUR and WHISKEY!”
Several followers immediately blasted the singer — who co-founded the animal rescue foundation MuttNation with her mom and owns five dogs — for “promoting murder,” among other offenses.
“You claim to be all about loving animals but you wear a few on your back,” fumed one person. “Shame on you!!!! You’re nothing but a fake piece of crap.”
Miranda Lambert, a self-described animal lover, was accused of being a hypocrite for posing in a picture with a fur coat she received from her grandmother.
“Stupid narcissist,” wrote another. “Do you know how many poor animals are killed so can have that dam ugly fur coat?”
Even animal-rights champion PETA registered its disapproval of the singer’s furry faux pas.
“We had higher hopes,” the nonprofit’s senior vice president, Lisa Lange, told the Daily News in a statement.
“Since Miranda rescues dogs, we always thought she could see that whether fur comes from a mink, a fox, or a dog or a cat in China, the source is always a gentle animal who did not want to die.”

Still, some commenters called for critics to cut Lambert some slack.
“I’m an animal lover, BUT…this coat was already made, passed down from her adorable grandmother that she loves to pieces, and I think she should be proud of the coat!” wrote one.
The musician hasn’t addressed the controversial post, but she did follow it with a snap of herself and her grandmother alongside a close-up of her Nonny’s name etched into the coat’s lining, emphasizing the gift’s emotional significance.
“Her name embroidered inside is priceless,” Lambert wrote. “A family heirloom I will cherish forever. I’m so thankful for her and all the things I have learned from her. Nonny is strong, beautiful, feisty and most of all, loving.”
A rep for the “Little Red Wagon” singer hasn’t yet responded to the Daily News’ request for comment.
