Miranda Lambert was slammed on Instagram when she showed off a gift she got from her grandmother on Christmas Day, Us Weekly reports. Miranda fans were furious with her because the gift in question was a real fur coat.
“I’m so fancy… You already know,” she wrote as the caption of the photo, referencing “Fancy,” the hit song by Iggy Azalea. “My Nonny gave me two of her fur coats! I definitely know where I got my love for DIAMONDS, FUR and WHISKEY! #familytradition #grandmatreasures #besthandmedownever #wandathewanderer #bringitwinter.”
Miranda was them faced with a lot of backlast on Instagram from fans who didn’t think her gift was fancy at all.
“Sorry, I love you dearly, but I don’t agree with this,” one commenter wrote under the Instagram photo. “I don’t agree with animals dying for coats.”
“Fur is not fancy,” another Lambert Instagram follower wrote.
But despite the backlash, there were a lot of comments that stood in support of Miranda Lambert and her decision to flaunt her fur coat.
“I never comment on celebrity profiles but this time I had to@mirandalambert,” a supportive Miranda fan wrote in the comments. “Don’t mind all the negativity. It’s very nice and more importantly it’s a heirloom, what a valuable piece of family history. I hope one day your daughter enjoys it as much as you do.”
Miranda has not addressed the criticism directly and she hasn’t deleted the picture from her Instagram page. She did post a subsequent picture on Instagram: a collage that included a picture of herself and her grandmother and a snap of the lining of the fur coat where her grandmother’s name embroidered.
“Her name embroidered inside is priceless,” she wrote in the caption of the second post. “A family heirloom I will cherish forever.. I’m so thankful for her and all the things I have learned from her. Nonny is strong, beautiful, feisty and most of all, loving. #grandmatreasures #diamondsfurandwhiskey #wandathewanderer.”
