Sean 'Diddy' Combs in Fur Flap

HSUS tests on the rapper’s clothing line find violation.

The test results are in on Sean “Diddy” Combs’s fur jacket: it’s from a raccoon dog, according to a statement from HSUS.

The HSUS tested the fur on a Sean John Hooded Snorkel Jacket sold on Macys.com that was originally advertised, incorrectly, as having an “imitation rabbit fur collar” and materials identified as “faux fur.”

The jacket, part of a clothing line designed by the rapper and music producer, was not only incorrectly advertised by Macy’s but also labeled as containing “raccoon” fur, which has now been found to come from a canine species known as raccoon dog.

Macy’s has reportedly pulled the mislabeled Sean John garments from its department stores and online shop, but the HSUS is calling on Diddy and other designers and retailers to stop using and selling fur trim altogether.

Previous tests conducted by the HSUS on fur-trimmed jackets from a range of other retailers and designers revealed the same problem — raccoon dog fur from China mislabeled as being from a different species, either “raccoon” or “coyote.”

The mislabeling of a fur product is a violation of federal law.
