Beyoncé under fire for revealing Super Bowl bodysuit made of python and iguana

Her barely there Super Bowl bodysuit was made with the finest python, iguana and cow skin - but it hasn't pleased everyone.
Following nothing but praise for her spectacular Super Bowl appearance, Beyoncé has found herself on the end of some disappointed words from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).
The organisation says the singer "missed the mark" when it came to backing humane fashion by sporting a leather Rubin Singer bodysuit which was made of python, iguana and cow skin for her much-lauded performance.
"We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés, she'd probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully," a spokesperson for PETA told the New York Daily News . "Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé's Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score."
PETA also remarked on the black fur Dior coat Beyoncé wore when she sang at President Obama's inauguration. "What does it mean when one of the most popular musicians in the world endorses the fur trade in such a dramatic way?" they said.
The organisation is known for targeting celebrity wearers of fur and the likes of the Olsen twins (who they transformed into the vile Trollson twins) , Kanye West, Kim Kardashian (who was publicly pelted with flour by a PETA supporter) and Lady Gaga have all been subjects of past campaigns.
Oh dear Queen Bey, maybe you should take heed before you become a victim of the old red paint trick.
