It didn’t take very long for PETA to jump all over Brooke Shields‘ comments regarding her visit to the Kopenhagen Fur workshop in March — and how she basically wants to wearing nothing but fur in the shower.

“I will advocate that both my generation and the younger generation can wear fur,” she said,  and “I will wear the fur garment when I follow my children to school, when I drink coffee and when I sleep.”

Enter PETA, stage left:

“When I was a little girl, I dreamed about growing up to be a rock star. Or maybe a veterinarian. Or a roller derby queen. I didn’t dream about anally electrocuting animals on fur farms, but apparently Brooke Shields did.”

“We understand that when some actors’ careers begin to fade, they’ll do just about anything to stay in the limelight, including appearing in eyelash-growing commercials and starring in short-lived TV shows,” continues the post. “But Brooke, did you really want the world to remember you as a ‘fur pimp’ who stares agog at rows of animal skins?”

Expect this one to heat up. With Shields’ Furry Vengeance movie tanking, this row is about the best shot at publicity she can expect right now.

    before she was an anti fur advocate – now she advocates fur: you can see from her face expression uphere that she has become mad!

    Eyelash growing commercials…HILARIOUS!

    I thought she was a vegetarian. Which, if you’re a celebrity, means absolutely crap as far as animal rights goes.

    What ever happen to choice? If it wasn’t for the settlers back in the day as trappers we wouldn’t have what we have today!!

      The difference is, that was “back in the day” and it’s now 2010. We don’t need to abuse, torture and strip fur from animals in order to be happy. And whatever happened to choice? I’m pretty sure if the animals in those cages could speak, they’d say the same damn thing.

    Seriously….this fur hag is missing a few screws. Her career of strange movies has gotten the best of her. The majority of people are not going to agree with her obsession with dead animal skins. She is exposing her insanity when she makes stupid comments about wearing fur in the shower and in bed.

    “I will advocate that both my generation and the younger generation can wear fur,” she said, and “I will wear the fur garment when I follow my children to school, when I drink coffee and when I sleep.”

    When you die (hopefully some time soon) you can wear your fur to keep your cadaver warm and cozy…

    If our fur-wearing ancestors from 10,000 years ago could see us today they’d think we’d gone stark raving mad.

      If our hologram-wearing descendents from 10,000 years in the future could see us today they’d think we were selfish idiots to still wear fur.
