PETA to Olsens: Pelt You!

12/11/2007 2:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

PETA has come out swinging against Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen for ignoring their pleas to stop wearing and promoting fur. We'd pre-fur you don't!

A new campaign launched this week features the "Trollsen Twins" (Hairy Kate and Trashley) learning about the evils of harming animals in a graphic video parody of "Full House".

The organization also plans to unveil a poster of the Starbucks-swilling celebutwins with the tagline: "Fur Is Worn By Beautiful Animals and Ugly People" next to their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this afternoon.

Where's Danny Tanner when they need him?

There are GREATER issues to concern ourselves with, such as AIDS, HUNGER, Being HOMELESS,CHILD/SPOUSE ABUSE, WAR, HIGH GAS PRICES, etc... & to spend our time disputing the personal choics of others is the sadest thing ever! What in the H_ _ _ is wrong with our country when animals skins take a higher priority than the aboved mentioned. Just because you have on fur - it doesn't mean your Mike Vick!

& #5 you took the words out of my mouth - I am still laughing.
I bet that anyone could catch one of those PETA fools wearing leather sneakers, shoes, coat or belt on any given day of the week. I guess they don't wear wool sweaters either... LOL @ #2 - I was thinking the very same thing, that's why I don't like people standing to close when I wear either one of my coats. I need at least 50 ft or else there will be a problem for the painter thrower because I got a little something for that A$$...

these wholesome caring peta sociopaths who are ever so pleased with flashing brutal images of slaugtered bloody animal corpses...i'd be really stupid to still believe that dignity is at all an issue for them. look at the 'dude' acting! we all know this kinda guy and what his real motivation is! and for sure it's not helping helpless creatures. when it comes to raking in tons of guilt cash- even the images of two little girls is abuse-worthy for the wholesome caring futre dude and his peta mob.

Just because "people have been wearing fur for hundreds of years" doesn't make it right! Is it right to kill something so that YOU can wear it's coat???

I don't eat meat, but at least I can understand leather since the animal is not killed just for its fur. What kind of hard-hearted people are you out there? EVERY living being deserves to be treated with respecf.

When Jesus said "Whatsoever you do to the LEAST of my Bretheren, how do you know he didn't mean animals, too??????

it is a shame that compassion for the less fortunate (including animals) has been pretty much lost on this generation for the most part. what goes around comes around.

Are you all nuts? Wearing fur is completely horrible! It's not the fur itself or leather for that matter but that the people keep and kill the animals in such vile and torturous ways. True we've been wearing fur for thousands of years - but are we not supposed to be evolved now? We know that the animals feel fear and pain - if we want to wear fur the animals should be treated humanely and be able to die humanely. Many have stepped up to the plate and buy Humane Society certified dairy and meat products with many more consumers doing so everyday. If consumers demand it - the market follows. Many of you must have furry pets - can you imagine bashing it's skull in or electrocuting it and ripping its fur off while it's still alive? If you want to wear fur (and you have the choice) at least demand that the animal is humanely killed.

I'd rather they wear a dead animal then to flash a beaver (sans panties). It's furry either way!

If only Peta would go after dog fighting rings run by men with guns rather than woman wearing furs, Peta would seem just a little more serious about animal welfare. Peta head quarters are in Virginia after all where Micheal Vick's dog fighting ring was caught and one can not possibly believe that Vick ran the one and only dog fighting ring in all of Virginia. Peta is right there in Va. and did nothing for these dogs or any dogs stuck in dog fighting kennels. Attacking the Oleson Twins for anything they wear is such any easy and safe target.

If we aren't supposed to eat animals... why then are they made of meat?!

Oh, and PETA persons... what again is the explanation of purchasing all those walk-in freezers? Shhhhhhhh. Can you say euthanasia?

Kudos to PETA! For those still in the stone age - fur is not a necessity in this day and age. Nor is it right to make animals suffer for our own vanity. Someone has to speak up for those who don't have a voice in our society, again Kudos to Peta! Shame on the Olsens!

Dog fighting is illegal - PETA doesn't have to "go after it", the police already do - that's why he got caught. The dog fighting battle has been won, PETA are fighting the battles that aren't won- yet.
