Kat Von D took her frustration on makeup brand NARS on Instagram with some very graphic posts of tortured animals. Kat Von D is one of the many who are against NARS new decision to test on animals just so they can sell their cosmetics in China, since it is required by Chinese law to test cosmetics on animals to be able to sell products in the country.
In her very long post slamming the cosmetics brand Kat Von D spoke about her shock on NARS new decision because she was always so supportive of them. “I was so sad to hear this news because for years I’ve supported NARS beauty products because they were one of the few artistry brands that didn’t test on animals” she wrote.
Many fans and upset makeup lovers commented underneath the post blaming NARS for using profit as an excuse to change their position on animal testing. NARS wrote an apology on Instagram explaining that even though they disagree with animal testing that they must comply with the local law of the markets they work with, including China.
This new decision will definetely effect NARS sale numbers, especially with customers against animal testing.
I don't normally post graphic images on my Instagram, but due to the terrible news we all got this week when @narsissist announced they've decided to start testing their cosmetics on animals, it wouldn't feel right not to say SOMETHING. I was so sad to hear this news because for years I've supported NARS beauty products because they were one of the few artistry brands that didn't test on animals, and now I am so confused/heartbroken that after all these years they would choose a paycheck over compassion. The images that I chose to post on this album are mild in comparison to the typical types of testing that @narsissist will now be implementing on all their products. This unnecessary cruelty is what you will be supporting every time you purchase one of their products [as well as any other company that CHOOSES to test on animals – because it is a choice]. So after reading @narsissist cop-out of a statement, I'd like to say this to them: Using the excuse that you want to elevate artistry, is complete bullshit when it comes at this price. You are NOT at the "forefront" of making change when you consciously choose to test on animals. There are already non-animal tests that give far more accurate results than testing on animals and supporting that horrible billion dollar industry is criminal. Shame on you for hiding behind such a false marketing statement in order to line your pockets, while countless animals suffer. Please reconsider selling in China until the animal testing laws change. Until then, I along with many true animal lovers will gladly boycott your products. #fuckanimaltesting #crueltyfree #crueltyfreebeauty #animalrights #animalliberation
