They want her to take back her mink and FAST!
PETA got word today that Brooke Shields lived out her "little girl's dream" and went to Denmark last March to design a mink coat. If Brooke's little trip didn't set them off, the comments she made to the press sure as hell did, as Brooke proudly boasted her love of fur and exclaimed she would "advocate" for younger generations to wear fur too.
It took a little bit longer than we would have expected for PETA to respond, but when they did, it was pretty biting! On their website, the animal-rights organization posted this message:
"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. But Brooke, did you really want the world to remember you as a 'fur pimp' who stares agog at rows of animal skins?"
Response, Miz Fur Pimp?
