Feel the fur and do it anyway

Jennifer Lopez's love of draping herself in the pelts of slaughtered creatures is causing her some problems. Apparently, she's been getting death threats from what the News of the World call "animal rights nuts". Interestingly, there seems to be some attempt in the reporting to comflate the mainstream PETA with the slightly more hideline death threaters:

My insider said: "Jen is absolutely terrified. The death threats have demanded she stop wearing animal skin.

"The letters were sent directly to her home and she's scared for her life."

J-Lo, 37, is so frightened that hubby MARC ANTHONY, 38, has had to tell her security entourage to work around the clock.

[...]

In 2005 more than one hundred protesters from PETA demonstrated at the Los Angeles premiere of J-Lo's film Monster In Law.

An insider said: "Groups like PETA have hated Jen for years and have made threats before.

"Fur is making a comeback in the US. It's fashionable again and the animal rights groups blame celebrities like Jennifer because of it."

It's more than a little unhelpful to suggest that peaceful, lawful pressure groups and criminal activists are one and the same. Unless, of course, you're trying to make the public think that anyone who's committed to anything is some sort of terrorist.
