The Olsen Twins are having a book signing tomorrow in NYC to celebrate the launch of their new coffee table book titled “Influence“. This odd, somewhat narcissistic picture-book, seeks to share the Olsen’s own pop culture influence and show us how they got to be so darn fashionable.
Of course, almost everyone outside the Olsen’s reality distortion field will tell you their fashion sense is, well, ‘interesting’. Ask PETA, and they’ll point you to their website ‘The Trollsen Twins‘ — which nails Ashley and Mary Kate on their use of fur and lack of compassion towards animals.
Using that theme — and just in time for Halloween — PETA is planning on holding a protest tomorrow during the book signing at the Barnes & Noble on 33 E. 17th St. at noon. Members of peta2 will wear scary “Trollsen Twins” masks and hold signs that show animals killed for fur next to the taglines “Hairy Kate and Trashley Olsen: Fur Tramps” and “Trollsens: Fur Hags From Hell”.
“From their ghoulish garb to their skeletal frames, every day is Halloween if you’re an Olsen twin,” says Dan Shannon, PETA’s assistant director of youth campaigns. “It’s frightening how out of touch Mary-Kate and Ashley are–no industry is more violent or bloody than the fur trade.”
Should be a good time. For more info on how you too can haunt the twins, jump on over to PETA’s media page here.
