Gem captioned the snap with: “There is no excuse for killing foxes, coyotes, rabbits, or any other animal for a fur coat or a pom pom. Let’s end the fur trade. Join me & @PETAUK in calling for a #FurFreeBritain.”

Dozens of her fan base congratulated the star on taking a stand against animal cruelty.

One user wrote: “Well done Gemma see so many celebrities that could help animals and use their platform but don’t . Instead they would rather promote makeup and rubbish. I applaud you well done start your own vegan makeup or cruelty free.”

A second person argued: “Well done for this! It’s about time they stopped it. No need for it at all.”

And a third user praised: “Thank you for caring about animals Gemma.”

However, some users accused Gemma of hypocrisy.

One pointed out that Gemma has an Ostrich feathered lamp in her home: “YES GEMMA!!! I am such a huge fan however sometimes I hear you talk about your ostrich feather products which can be as harmful as fur is! Please re-think before buying ostrich again! Love you.”

What did fans say?

And a second user pointed out that she has just been photographed enjoying a McDonald’s burger.

The disgruntled user wrote: “Yet she’s the face of Big Mac… encouraging people to eat meat – there’s no difference. You can’t say you’re against killing animals and then go eat them …”

Additional users said they sympathised with the cause, but found the image too gruesome.

One wrote: “I couldn’t agree more with this campaign but this picture is a bit too raw.”

Meanwhile, another user argued: “I’m all for no cruelty to animals but that picture of a fox is horrid.”
