People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has slammed former Spice girl Victoria Beckham for supporting a fashion chain that uses crocodile skin in its products.

The singer-turned-designer, who is regularly seen with a Hermes handbag on her arm, has been urged to give up the luxury brand as it frequently uses animal skin, reports contactmusic.com.

"We will send Victoria Beckham, a compassionate person who won't wear fur, our undercover footage that shows how alligators and crocodiles are beaten to death and how snakes are nailed to trees and skinned alive for these products," said a PETA spokesperson.

"The mere thought of purposefully breeding and killing crocodiles for an outdated, overpriced handbag should make any fashionista's skin crawl," the spokesperson added.
