McLoughlin has often offended animal lovers with her wardrobe of fur and snakeskin items, claiming that the animal lovers are overlooking the animals primary reason for existence to make clothing, she asserted that "these animals were put here for a reason, and if you don't understand that, then go to Primark, because you're probably just jealous".
