PETA continues to impress me; not only are they on top of the game regarding the latest good and evil in animal rights, but they’re also pretty clever when it comes to getting their message to those who need it the most. In this case, the celebrity punked was none other than fur-culprit, Jennifer Lopez.
As we reported earlier, JLo held a press event/contest at a Macy’s Department Store in California for the launch of her latest perfume, Glow After Dark. For the contest, JLo was looking for the next “Glo” girl to represent the product. She held open public auditions and several young women came to the event hoping to win. PETA decided to attend as well and rig the contestants with some of their own supporters. Apparently, their plan paid off. From the article,
“Two members from PETA disrupted the proceedings when they took to the stage and pretended to audition, but, instead, launched into a tirade against the singer/actress.
While on stage, one of the PETA protestors told judges, “I think the most important thing about being a diva… is not only being sexy and being stylish, but not wearing real f**king fur!” She then began chanting, “J.Lo, fur ho!” The stunned master of ceremonies quickly marched the intruder off the stage.”
JLo, Fur Ho! I really dig that chant; and it must have been pretty embarrassing for the organizers to have some party crashers on the scene. No word yet on if JLo was in attendance, but we have to wonder how many more public ridicules she’ll suffer before finally dropping the fur. Till then, we look forward to hearing what PETA has planned next.
