Nicole and Ashley Top PETA's Naughty List

11/28/2006 at 12:30 PM ET

We already knew that PETA was letting Lindsay Lohan off the hook this year, but others have not been so lucky. Nicole Richie tops PETA’s annual worst dressed list, along with fellow fur-wearers Ashley Olsen, Christina Ricci (slammed for wearing reindeer fur on a magazine cover) and Eva Longoria. Noticeably absent from the list is last year’s No. 1, Paris Hilton, who has apparently had a change of heart and only wears fake fur now. Think that was Tinkerbell‘s influence?

To “T”: So where is the MORAL aspect of the problem? If people don’t call attention of the governments to create laws againts things that are wrong, they’ll never become illegal. Laws don’t grow from the trees, the public opinion has a lot to do with the creation of regulations, as you, certainly, know. I think is very arrogant to say that we can do whatever we feel like just because isn’t illegal, or because you are americans.

I think that to wear fur is wrong and if the PTA thinks that it is important to call attention to people that wear thoes furs, than that is there perogodive. I also think that mabey this may make the people that care about thoes lists stop wearing thoes furs or atleast not buy new ones.

A: I’m fully aware of what it is, or I would not be posting here. Thanks for the reiteration though.

Unless you’ve looked at this issue from both sides of the spectrum, you have no right to be arguing. YES, PETA is quite extreme. They make extreme points. In America we DO have the freedom to do what we want, even if it means wearing fur. And i’m not going to deny the fact that people are capable of more than animals. BUT, i’m still a vegetarian. my set of morals (which MAY be different from yours) says that wearing animals is wrong. i PERSONALLY believe that PETA has good points about animal rights. But because of what i believe, will I attack people who believe that it is ok to wear fur? NO. because THEY are entitled to their own opinion. I respect their opinion. Even though i was essentially called an “idiot” in an earlier post, my choice not to attack that writer by calling them names makes me the “Bigger Person,” and i’ll choose maturity over hostility any day.

They could be wearing faux furs. May all be fake, so we shouldn’t jump to any conclusions. I have some fake furs.

Yes,we do need to respect peoples decisions but these animals are killed with cruelty…

We are making a big deal about it now because we just realized we are killing innocent animals, they cannot speak for themselves so speak for them…

Educating people is not wrong… and how would you like an animal wearing you, treat the way you would like to be treated

I believe people have the right to do as they choose also, however, not at the expense of an animal suffering a cruel, painful, sadistic, death. If you watch the videos on PETA’s website, (if you have the stomach), you might just think twice about putting an animal’s skin on your own. The images are harsh, but true..

Perhaps if there was a more humane way of creating fur clothing, (I would still not agree with it), the issue wouldn’t weigh as heavily on a animal lover’s heart.

Some people have made the statement, that perhaps the celebrities are uneducated.. I’m sure in their efforts, PETA, has contacted numerous celebrities about these issues and made them aware of the terrible manner in which fur is acquired.. so if they are uneducated, my guess is that it was their own ignorance or denial.

The fur trade is evil. Wear your own skin, not someone else’s..

Well….I say let them do what they please God put animals on this earth to clothe us!
I love fur especially vintage fur get off their backs they have style which means you guys probably….DONT! No offense or anything I love the animals but wat use are they if you cant eat them or use them for clothes (sorry if I offended anyone but I have a right to say what i perfectly please to say!)

Hello,
Okay, I would just like to start off by saying that Nicole and Ashley look like walking sticks. It is pretty disgusting (almost as disgusting as the dead skin they are wearing) to know that our youth are more than likely looking at little Michelle Tanner, or Ms. Tabloid Queen and saying “I want to be like that.”
I am a vegetarian, and a proud PETA member. What some people on these bpards do not understand is that you do not have to be an avid radical to be on the same side and have the same view points as PETA. I know that PETA is very rad and out there, but they are speaking out for the animals who cannot speak out for themselves. I would like to see any fur wearer visit the site furisdead.com and view one of those videos. If you still have the decensy to put on the ur of a lifeless victim, then you truly cannot comprehend right from wrong. Speaking your opinion is not wrong, but speaking an opinion that IS inhumane is unacceptable!

Take Care!
God Bless!
*Nai*
