"After time spent under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh that it is and likely be crawling in maggots," the group told TMZ on Monday (September 13), just hours after Lady Gaga accepted an award from Cher in the provocative outfit. This isn't the first time PETA has been critical of Gaga's wacky use of meat for her forward-thinking fashions. After appearing on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan in a meat bikini, the group released a similarly sarcastic response.
"No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal," PETA president Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement. "Meat represents bloody violence and suffering, so if that's the look they were going for, they achieved it."_
