Earlier this morning, Lindsay Lohan — while on her way to a VIP lounge at a nightclub in Paris — was confronted by an anti-fur activist who dumped an entire bag of flour over her head. The French woman then shouted, “Lindsay Lohan — fur hag!”, and apparently fled the scene.
Not soon after, PETA Europe’s Robbie LeBlanc released a statement regarding the incident — which makes me believe the animal rights organization may have been behind the stunt. He said, “There is nothing remotely ‘fashionable’ about the torture and death of animals killed for fur. Lindsay Lohan might be able to ignore images of bloody animals skinned alive for their pelts, but we hope a dash of flour will help her rise to the occasion and forsake fur once and for all.”
PETA has long criticized Lohan for her use of fur — naming the actress to their “Worst Dressed List” and repeatedly urging her to drop the skins. Wearing two different fur coats over the last few days probably hasn’t helped either.
I’m not the biggest fan of direct assaults on people — even if it is with flour — but I’ve got very little sympathy for Lohan and her fur habit as well. What do you think of this latest incident? Too far or just cause?
