PETA slams Beyonce for her choice of wardrobe at her Super Bowl XLVII halftime show. The non-profit organization is upset that the recording artist chose to wear so much skin during her performance.

Designed by Rubin Singer, Beyonce’s Super Bowl custom-made outfit included a leather motorcycle jacket and bodysuit with python and iguana strips, according to The New York Times.

In a statement, PETA said Beyonce’s use of animal skin was behind the sartorial times (via HuffPo):

“We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposes here and here, she’d probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits, or other animals who died painfully. Today’s fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyonce’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.”

This is the second time the animal activist group has found fault with Beyonce’s clothing in the last four weeks. They also found fault with the 31-year-old’s attire while attending President Barack Obama’s inauguration on January 20, where she wore a mink fur coat.

“What does it mean when one of the most popular musicians in the world endorses the fur trade in such a dramatic way?” PETA wrote.
