Alan Cumming pleads for Lady Gaga to think of all her Little Monsters, Kermit The Frog included.

The gay community is letting Lady Gaga know she shouldn't keep promises she can't keep. 

Alan Cumming of "The Good Wife," who is openly bisexual, criticized the pop star for not coming out with a statement concerning the coats she's been spotted in: are they real or faux fur?

If Mother Monster has been donning fur, that would contradict her previously outspoken statements against animal cruelty. On a 2009 episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Gaga gave an explanation as to why she wore a top that consisted of Kermit The Frog puppets glued together: "I really loved that one in particular because I thought it was a commentary on not wearing fur, 'cause I hate fur and I don't wear fur." 

Cumming sure knows how to tweet it where it hurts. "I'm so disappointed to learn Lady Gaga wears fur! Guess she doesn't love all little monsters," he tweeted to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

The 47-year-old actor was responding to a cunning open letter that Dan Mathews, PETA's senior vice president, wrote to Gaga. "Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen [DeGeneres] ... I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia," penned Dan Mathews, PETA's senior vice president. "What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it's fake, or are you a turncoat?" 

Mathews likens animal rights to the struggles of the gay community: "Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation. PETA has long participated in Pride events around the country, and just last week, we helped lead protests against Chick-fil-A."

Near the end of the letter, Mathews questions Gaga's motives for wearing fur coats in the midst of a heat wave and compares her to "the mindless Kim Kardashian." 

To conclude the letter, Mathews asks Gaga if her statement to DeGeneres was sincere or not.
