Janet Jackson Fan Outraged Over Fur Line, Auctioning Off Memorabilia for PETA
A former Janet Jackson mega-fan is not too happy with the singer anymore. Her decision to design and launch a fashion line filled with animal fur clothing has led him to auction off all of his Janet memorabilia.
According to the Toronto Sun, Sean Oltersdorf from Michigan will auction all of the items he has collected and donate the proceeds. Oltersdorf said, “I am a long-time Janet Jackson fan – or I should say I used to be. I am disgusted and have decided I want to auction off my entire 25 years-plus of Janet items and donate the proceeds to PETA. I have three rescued chinchillas and find Janet’s decision reprehensible.” His collection includes posters and photos, magazines, vinyl and other items and will be on Ebay.com.
Jackson partnered with fur company Blackglama for the new mink fur line, which will feature 15 items including coats and gloves. This isn’t the first time Miss Jackson has been criticized for her love of fur. Last year, long-time animal advocate Pamela Anderson responded to the singer’s Blackglama fur ads, saying “It’s disappointing. She has spoken out against fur before. I don’t know why some people stop listening to their heart. I guess some people get greedy, but it’s sad.”
