We can add PETA to the growing list of people who either disliked, hated or semi-enjoyed Sunday night's Super Bowl LIII halftime show.

PETA took to Twitter to call out rapper Big Boi and his choice of clothing attire.

The Atlanta based rapper who makes up half of the dynamic rapping duo Outkast, joined Maroon 5 towards the end of their halftime performance. Big Boi pulled up to the show in a Cadillac convertible, a fur coat and to the chorus of, "I'm On It (Kryptonite)."

After performing his hit song "The Way You Move", from his joint album Spearkboxxx/The Love Below, PETA tweeted a photo of the rapper next to a caged fox.

"If animals have to be murdered for your coat, just choose something else for fox sake," the tweet said.

If that wasn't enough the organization tweeted out a video showing examples of how animals are killed for their fur.

PETA also called Big Boi out again but this time they referenced his song, "The Way You Move."

“Hey, @BigBoi! The way you move is horrifying when animals have to DIE for your outfit,” the tweet said.
