Pink Apologized for A Campaign to Boycott Australian Wool



Pink has apologised to Australians for backing a world animal rights campaign against Australia's wool industry.

Pink has taken back her words. The US pop star issued an apology to Australians for a campaign to boycott Australian wool industry organized by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

The singer angered Australian farmers in Aussie when she, during her concert in December last year, called on consumers to boycott products made with Australian wool in protest at the "sadistic" practice of mulesing, where farmers cut loose skin from the backsides of sheep to discourage flies.

"I probably could have done a lot more research on my own. That's the lesson I'm taking from this," Pink told Australian television. "My message was, in my mind, boycott animal cruelty, not an entire industry, not Australia, because it's my favorite country."

Due to the incident, Pink, who is due to tour Australia in April, said she was prepared to meet farmers and wool industry representatives.
