The animal rights group PETA is reportedly not too happy with Beyonce.

The group, who rally for the "ethical treatment of animals," is speaking out about Beyonce's Super Bowl ensemble, which supposedly contained lizard, iguana and python skin, according to a report published by E! Online on February 4.

"We would take a bet that if Beyonce watched our video exposes ... she'd probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits, or other animals who died painfully," a spokesman for the animal rights group told E! News.

"Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyonce's Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score," the statement continued.

Beyonce performed during the halftime show at the Super Bowl XLVII football game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers on February 3, donning a lacy, one-piece body suit (See photos above).

The famed singer opened her show with "Crazy in Love," and went on to perform hit songs such as "Baby Boy" and "Halo," as well as newer songs such as "End of Time." The singer's performance also featured a special reunion by Destiny's Child who performed "Bootylicious," "Independent Women," and a special rendition of Beyonce's hit song, "Single Ladies."

PETA has criticized Beyonce's fashion choices before.

Last month, the animal rights group found fault with the Christian Dior mink coat Beyonce wore to the presidential inauguration (See photos), according to E! Online.

PETA also once published a public letter in Billboard magazine that said: "Your fans at PETA are saddened that you've ignored repeated appeals calling your attention to the way minks, foxes and chinchillas are gassed, strangled and electrocuted on fur farms for your wardrobe."

In 2008, just after Beyonce married Jay-Z, PETA declared that it is "calling a ceasefire" with her because she was not photographed publicly wearing animal material for months, adding that "as a goodwill gesture," the group's senior vice president had sent the newlyweds "a luxurious throw from top faux fur maker Fabulous Furs."
