We should've seen this one coming: PETA is none too pleased with Beyonce's halftime outfit at the Super Bowl.

The animal right group released the following statement:

We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés here and here, she'd probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits, or other animals who died painfully. Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé's Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.

The animals in question, actually, are cows, pythons and iguanas: Bey's extravagant black bodysuit was constructed of "strips of engineered python, paneled iguana and trapunto/pick stitched leather," according to designer Rubin Singer.

Considering it was custom-made, we doubt Beyonce had an opposition to the exotic skins being used. This is, after all, the woman who donned a full-length fur coat at the 2013 Inauguration and wears fake eyelashes made out of mink fur.

Perhaps she will take PETA's words to heart and change her fur lovin' ways -- but we're not holding our breath.

Check out the outfit in question. Do you think Bey should've gone faux?
