All Miranda Lambert wanted to do was show off the Christmas presents she received from her grandmother.
The 32-year-old country crooner shared two photos on Saturday, a shot of herself in a full-length fur coat she had just received -- which she naturally captioned, "I'm so fancy," a nod to Iggy Azalea's hit song, "Fancy" -- and a collage that featured her grandma and the inside of the coat. The latter showed Nonny's name, Wanda Coker, embroidered on the pink lining.
Animal activists jumped all over the posts, sharing their disdain for real fur coats and lambasting the "Little Red Wagon" singer for accepting the jackets with comments like "f**k fur," "hypocrite," and "shame on you." PETA was also quick to take a stand on the gifts.
"We had higher hopes," PETA's Vice President, Lisa Lange, told ET in a statement. "Since Miranda rescues dogs, we always thought she could see that whether fur comes from a mink, a fox, or a dog or a cat in China, the source is always a gentle animal who did not want to die."
Plenty of fans did come to Lambert's defense, however, noting that she received an old family gift and did not buy a brand new fur.
"It's an heirloom a**holes. Not like she went out and spent 50k on it. Idiots. Leave the woman alone," one wrote on the second Instagram pic.
"She hunts... No reason to longer be a fan because of that lol. Hunting is how a lot of us live," another added.
A third cheered the singer on directly, writing in the comments section of the first photo, "Love it...ppl now at days get offended over everything....so annoying....don't let anyone steal your sunshine or put you down...you didn't buy it & you got it from your grandma and you look fancy & beautiful....Do & wear whatever makes you happy."
Lambert still has not commented publicly on the backlash.
While Lambert celebrated her first holiday season without ex-husband Blake Shelton surrounded by both human and furry family, the Voice judge spent Christmas in Oklahoma with his new girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. Shelton even took the No Doubt frontwoman to a store he used to frequent with Lambert:
