* In ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'', [[UpperClassTwit London]], acting as an animal-loving celebrity, attracts the rage of a local animal rights group after Maddie lets it slip to a reporter that London has "fox furs" in her wardrobe. It is later revealed that it was a misunderstanding; London's furs are fake but she thinks that "faux" (which rhymes ''dough'') is pronounced ''fox''.

* In the ''Series/PennAndTellerBullshit'' episode on [[AnimalWrongsGroup PETA]], they make it clear that they have nothing but contempt for this trope, and consider it to be hypocrisy in its purest form. They point out while interviewing a PETA spokesman that he's wearing a fake leather belt, shoes and watchband, thus propagating the fashion even though his outfit didn't directly murder any animals.

In RealLife, some people claim some vintage furs they have are fake, to avoid harassment.

harassment. Conversely, it is also possible to buy clothes containing real fur claiming to be faux fur, since farming certain types of animals for fur can actually be cheaper than synthetic materials.

* A very odd version occurs in the comic ''Chaminou'' by Raymond Macherot. It takes place in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals, where it used to be the case long, long ago that some of them ate each other. A legendary king outlawed the practice however, and in a flashback we see him in a traditional royal outfit. A note points out that his cape was made of ''fake'' ermine - that is, he wasn't a hypcrite.

* ''{{/Webcomic/Megatokyo}}'' spoofs this. When [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/638 Seraphim shows different outfits from around the world]] the Russian outfit is a fur coat, hat, and muff (the fur even wraps around her wings), and she is really worried it might not be fake fur.
