MARY-KATE and ASHLEY OLSEN have been attacked by animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which claims they have “ignored pleas to stop wearing fur and using it in their fashion collection”.
PETA has dubbed the pair “the Trollson Twins” and “Hairy Kate and Trashly” in a stinging new campaign.
A poster, with the tag line “fur is worn by beautiful animals and ugly people”, is to be unveiled on Tuesday (11Dec07) at their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Los Angeles.
This is a pretty horrifying campaign. It’ll be interesting to see what Mary-Kate and Ashley’s response is to this. There’s really not a whole lot of defending they can do for themselves.
