First lady Melania Trump is gaining the praise of PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, after the first lady wrote a letter to Pamela Anderson thanking her for a custom faux fur coat.
"Pamela Anderson sent elegant Melania a stylish faux fur, as well as a video showing how animals are cruelly killed in the wild and on fur farms, so it's no surprise that she is now fur-free, following in the footsteps of so many fashion icons and first ladies," Dan Mathews, PETA senior vice president, said in a Wednesday statement to the Washington Examiner.
Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed to CNN that the first lady "does not wear fur."
Anderson posted a photo of Trump's "sweet note" to Twitter on Wednesday.
In February, she sent the first lady a custom faux fur as a thank-you gift for Trump's decision not to wear fur during her husband's inauguration.
"Amid all the mania at the inauguration, you looked stunning in an outfit by Ralph Lauren — one of many fur-free designers," Anderson, an animal rights advocate, wrote in a letter to Trump. "I am so happy that you chose not to wear fur! As first lady, you will help set style trends, and by remaining compassionate with your choices, you will warm the hearts of many."
Trump thanked Anderson for her "support and encouraging words."
The White House was unable to provide CNN with an exact date in which Trump stopped wearing fur.
