Not everyone is happy about Sia's upcoming Viva Glam collaboration with MAC.

MAC is known for their celebrity collaborations. Everyone from Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, and now Sia have collaborated with MAC cosmetics.

Sia announced that she was working with MAC for their VIVA GLAM campaign and fans are torn about the singer's decision.

Sia is vegan, and has tweeted in the past about not eating meat.

As MAC sells their products in China (a country which requires animal testing by law), fans of cruelty-free beauty often call out the brand for continuing to sell in the country.

MAC responded to this controversy earlier in the year by saying, "M·A·C does not test on animals. We do not own any animal testing facilities and we never ask others to test on animals for us. While some governments conduct animal testing to prove safety before they will allow us to sell our products, M·A·C has never tested on animals and we continue to be a leader in the movement to end animal testing globally. "

Many have expressed disappointment over Sia's collaboration with the brand.

Sia addressed the controversy in a tweet but MAC selling in China was still a huge sticking point for many fans.

Cruelty free makeup is becoming a huge priority for young women and men who feel better knowing their beauty products are 100% free of animal testing and animal byproducts.

While MAC can likely say that they do not own testing facilities or carry out testing themselves, China's animal testing law places them in a tough spot when it comes to this debate.
