Seems there was some sort of eBay auction dealie, the result of which was the winner having dinner with her in a swank Manhattan restaurant. hey, kinda cool for a fan, right? However, members of PETA decided to take over the auction, made sure they won, and sent a delegation to the dinner to giver her shit about using fur in her recent clothing line and personal wardrobe. Eventually, after not only grilling her but also whipping out a portable DVD player to show footage of animal deaths, they were escorted out despite their claims that they respect her work.
Now, really...what did they think they were going to accomplish? You've wasted her time, taken a fan dream away from fans (and made sure she's gonna be skittish about doing it again), and for what? Does anyone honestly think she's going to respond favourably to something like this? "Wow, I tried to hook up something nice for a fan, instead a bunch of activists assault me...gee, you're right, I'll change my ways RIGHT NOW." This is what really gets me about PETA; they are so adamant about their cause, and so vehement about it all, but they seem to have forgotten the old adage about attracting more flies with honey than vinegar. From the old 'throwing red paint' trick to more recent semi-naked protests, all they really accomplish is that people are aware there are people out there who are violently anti-fur. "Look, dear, there's more of those protest people."
In the end, remember one thing: we may all be animals, but we're still on top of the food chain. Deal with it. Instead of getting so worked up about the "treatment" of animals who are farm-raised in captivity for this express purpose, why not try to do something important, like working on the conditions of HUMANS on this planet. Fuck, man, in this world of war, disease, pollution, and poverty, is the wearing of fur really the most important thing you have to think about?!?
