Diddy in controversy over fashion label20/12/2006 - 11:47:20
Rap mogul Sean 'Diddy' Combs' fashion label Sean John is at the centre of controversy after an animal rights charity discovered his 'faux fur jacket' is actually made from raccoon fur.
The Humane Society Of The United States (HSUS) claim Macy's department store chain is selling a coat advertised as having an "imitation rabbit fur collar" and "nylon/faux fur/goose down".
The HSUS bought the article, only to find the labels stated the jacket was made from "genuine raccoon fur".
The HSUS is doing DNA testing on the fur to determine whether or not the fur is raccoon dog, a breed of Chinese dog whose fur resembles racoon.
If DNA tests prove conclusive, Macy's will remove the coats from their stores because they have a strict no dog or cat fur policy.
