NBC's The Office Tackles The Fur Issue
Earlier this year I declared that The Office had officially become my all-time favorite show…maybe ever! Could it be Steve Carell’s hystericalness? Possibly? Could it be my addiction to Angela Kinsey’s web videos? Perhaps? Is it because I have like the HUGEST crush ever on Jenna Fischer? Yeah, that might have something to do with it! But still, the point is that The Office is fantastic and now I have another reason to love it!
Last night, Michael (played by Steve Carell) bought a fur coat at Burlington Coat Factory and revealed: “You should know that some people think it’s cool to throw buckets of fake blood on you as you are walking out of Burlington Coat Factory.”
Now if you think this episode was pro-fur, THINK AGAIN! The coat they used in production was totally faux and original Office star Ricky Gervais has worked hard with PETA to publicly speak out against fur! Burlington Coat Factory, however, isn’t off the hook!
Burlington still sells fur and eagerly supports this super cruel industry. GROSS! So follow our lead and stay out of Burlington Coat Factory until they refuse to sell fur. Cause fur, ya’ll…it just AIN’T COOL!
