(Newser) Project Runway's favorite nice guy Tim Gunn is joining the anti-fur PETA campaign with a personal video plea to designers amid shocking images of screaming skinned rabbits, reports the New York Post. PETA is focusing on designers using rabbit fur from China, where there are no animal protection laws. Any designer who ignores the facts is "egregiously irresponsible," says Gunn, who is now the CEO of Liz Clairborne.
