Lady Gaga has fired back at criticisms over her wearing fur -- branding militant animal rights activists "childish" and "abusive".
Gaga issued a statement on her website in response to recent open letter penned by one of the bosses at PETA regarding her apparent 'backflip' to wearing animal fur -- a decision that has also sparked a backlash from some of her little monsters.

She wrote, "I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life."
"I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. 'Animal Rights.'"
Gaga went on to add, "I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, 'kermit' and not to mention meat, that I have already worn."

"You see a carcass, I see a museum pice de rsistance."
Gaga concluded, "I respect your views, please respect mine. And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous."
