Is PETA Picking on the Olsens Too Much?

It's no mystery why PETA isn't a fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's fashion choices, considering the twins are often seen wearing fur and have included it in both of their fashion lines. Today, the organization unveiled a new anti-Olsen's effort, including an entire interactive website and an ad campaign to be unveiled at their star on the Walk of Fame.

In addition to rolling out the site and a MySpace page dedicated solely to exposing the "pair of unpleasant, airheaded fur hags" (referring to them as Hairy-Kate and Trashley Trollsen), the organization is also making personal attacks against the twins' weight and physical appearance. So we want to know — do you think PETA is picking on the Olsens too much?

they should go after brands which making furs. i mean there is lot of celebrity that wears fur. the maybea choosed them cause they are icons, teen girls can copy their furs too.

More and more I'm getting annoyed by PETA. This isn't the first time they've insulted someone for wearing fur. It's a personal decision whether to wear fur or not, and you shouldn't be insulted about it.

PETA is run by and supported by psychopaths. End of story.

I think they're going way too far. I, personally, would never wear fur but I wouldn't take it out on the Olsen Twins... they rock lol

well PETA is certainly getting attention for this but I am losing sympathy with them and I am someone who would never wear fur.

See, this is the problem! Peta is trying to do good work, and they go about it in the wrong way, which makes people dislike the organization and ignore the message!

i think PETA has been relatively quiet regarding the olsens thus far, and it's about time!

its out of line and nasty, but i reckon fur wearing is bad and don't get what the point is when it looks dodgy on people and unattractive, plus the main reason being it kills something to look like that...

Hasn't PETA been shut down yet?

I support anti-fur campaigns - but I think that right now, every animal out there is rolling their eyes.

Um, the Olsen twins aren't the only ones in Hollywood fur, so for PETA to single them out is wrong. I'm against the use of fur and I understand they're trying to prove a point, but are they bashing Jennifer Lopez too?!

i understand peta's cause, i really do, but really! this is a low blow! peta is losing integrity rather than gaining supporters..

It is incredible that PETA allows itself the right to mud-sling and use vitriolic personal attacks, when any other legitimate political organization would be demonized for such behavior. Why is it that promoting fuzzy bunnies makes you immune to the normal rules of civilization? Not sure that I'd ever wear fur, but they make me want to! Well, I guess they know better than everyone that if you spread hate, you'll get only love and joy and happy puppies in return... You mean that's not how karma works?!? My bad!

PETA has always acted in such a ridiculous way! I'm not surprised that they would do any of this. I know that they have been responsible for some good things, but they always go to such extremes!

Taking shots at someone's personal appearance is a low blow. Just because some people don't believe in wearing fur (me), that doesn't mean others can't disagree. That's why we all live in America, right?

Well I really don't suport killing animals just for thier fur, but I do eat meat and believe in using the whole animal that you kill! I think it is just bad judgement to bring up peoples personal lives while trying to make a valid point. PETA use to be a great program until they turned just as Hollywood as the people they attack. Would'nt it be nice to find a happy medium to discuss the problems of the World without turning to cruelty and back stabbing? Ahhh well just a thought.

I watched a show on PETA, they are crazy people. The founder of it is nutts! She fights for animals but yet she doesn't believe in GOd, now where in the world does she think those animals come from?

I understand the issue of fur but I have never supported PETA. They are extremists and violent. I am a happy vegetarian and firmly believe in my convictions but I would never physically or verbally assault someone to to make them see my point of view. Knowing that MK has issues with body image is just low and pathetic. I think the Olsens should take action against PETA and their slanderous campaign.
