That’s the challenge Sia issued to Kanye West, hours before he unveiled his latest fashion collection.

The pop star tweeted her question to Kanye, linking to a YouTube video that contained harrowing scenes of rabbits being slaughtered for their coats.

“This is the reality of fur ,” said Sia. “It’s so sad.”

West’s Yeezy Season 5 appeared to include both fur coats and accessories.

The most striking item was a floor-sweeping fur coat, showcased by hijab-wearing model Halima Aden, who was the first Miss Minnesota contestant to compete wearing a hijab and burkini.

Vogue magazine said the garments were faux fur, although the BBC has been unable to verify that report.

It is not the first time that Sia – who worked with Kanye on songs including Wolves and Reaper – has challenged celebrities over animal rights.

Last June, she tweeted the same video at Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, writing, “Hey @KimKardashian I think you’re lovely. Would you consider going fur free? This is what animals go through for it.”

In December, after rapper Azealia Banks posted an Instagram video apparently showing the remains of several chickens killed in a witchcraft ritual, Sia tweeted, “Sacrificing animals for your gain is the wackest [thing] I’ve ever heard.”

The Australian singer is a vegan and supporter of animal rights’ group Peta.
