Why Is Rev. Run Wearing Fur?
Is the “Man Of God” supposed to be wearing animals on his back?
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters.
PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, and other “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.
PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.
While promoting he and Tyrese’s new relationship book entitled ”Manology” Reverend Run donned a fur coat and spoke on Beyoncé being the ultimate pimp for snagging Jay-Z!
Rev Run and Tyrese have been out promoting their new book “Manology.”
During a recent promotional event in D.C., the two spoke to a room full of women about how to maintain a healthy relationship.
Rev Run even delved into the relationship of hip-hop’s biggest couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce.
“Those were the parallels for me, ‘The Book of Ruth” and Beyonce and Jay-Z because she captured the ultimate pimp.
She out-pimped him,” said Rev. “She’s so smart and feminine, that she was smart enough to name the new upcoming tour Mrs. Carter.”

Joseph Ward Simmons (born November 14, 1964), known by the stage name Rev. Run or DJ Run, is one of the founding members of the influential hip hop group Run–D.M.C.. He is also a practicing minister, known as Reverend Run.
Simmons was born in Hollis, Queens, New York. He is the brother of Daniel “Danny” Simmons, Jr. and Russell Simmons, the co-founder of Def Jam Records. He found new popularity in 2005 with his family’s MTV reality show Run’s House. Simmons married Valerie Vaughn in 1983. They had three children: Vanessa Simmons, Angela Simmons, and Joseph “Jojo” Simmons Jr. He married Justine Jones on June 25, 1994. With her, he had three more children: Daniel “Diggy” Simmons III, Russell “Russy” Simmons II, and Victoria Anne Simmons.
Victoria was four pounds, five ounces when she was delivered via caesarean section.She died shortly after being born on September 26, 2006, due to omphalocele, a birth defect that caused her organs to grow outside her body.The Simmons allowed MTV camera crews of Run’s House to document baby Victoria’s death, telling PEOPLE that “God, in my mind, gave us something to go through in front of America, so we documented it on-camera – not so much to show you sadness, but to show you how we, as ministers, would handle this tragedy. [The kids] found out on-camera.
Diggy was waiting to see, ‘How’s Mommy?’ And the first words we said were, ‘The baby didn’t make it.’”Soon they adopted a baby girl, Miley Justine Simmons. The Simmons family lives in Saddle River, New Jersey, USA.
