Sugar Bits - Jay-Z Now has 100 Problems

  • Jay-Z's clothing line Rocawear has pulled items after being called out by The Humane Society for using raccoon-dog fur on some of their clothes. Sounds like things over there are pretty hairy. - Page Six
  • Eighty year old Hugh Hefner and #1 girlfriend Holly Madison from The Girls Next Door are evidently talking about having a baby. Hopefully he'll be able to pick it up! - R&M
  • Kevin Bacon is launching a website based on The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon that gives visitors a chance to learn about celebs' favorite charities. It's about time he did something with that great game! - USA Today
  • The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is demanding an apology from Isaiah Washington for continually making homophobic remarks. Hopefully Isaiah will stop pretending the whole thing didn't happen. - TMZ
  • A friend of Marilyn Manson says a midlife crisis is the reason that the goth singer has opted for a younger version of his estranged wife Dita Von Teese. Sounds like a bad excuse. - People

RCL, who's criticizing christians? did i miss something? and i don't believe in slamming any religion so i'm not endorsing criticizing them. i'm just not sure when that happened. criticizing any religion is awful, but *all* religions get criticized. christianity ain't alone

I really don't care about the whole fur deal. I think there are a lot of more important issues in the world. Once we have cured AIDS, Cancer and world hunger, I'll jump right on the PETA band wagon...as long as I can still have a leather jacket.

I'm sure they thought more people would buy the clothes if the fur was labled faux, they can claim ignorance, but I don't believe it as real fur is pretty easy to spot, especially to those in the clothing industry. I agree that any fur is gross and cruel and Jay-Z and Diddy should both be ashamed to make more millions off of the blood of innocent animals. Although it is not considered a true "dog" is is from the same family as dogs, wolves, and foxes. You can read about them on Wikipedia. Here is a Wikipedia exerpt on how they are used in the fur trade: An investigation [4]by three animal protection groups into the Chinese fur trade in 2004 and part of 2005 asserts that there are an estimated 1.5 million raccoon dogs being raised for fur in China. The report claims that killing methods include first hitting the animals on the head with a stick or slamming the animal into the ground to stun them, but that "a significant number of animals remain fully conscious during the skinning process and started to writhe and move around." Video taken during the investigation [5] shows a raccoon dog apparently conscious during and after the skinning process. A 2005 follow-up article by the Beijing News[6] reports: "On this particular day around half the raccoon dogs and foxes were skinned alive like this."

A lot of fur in the industry is obtained that way, ccsugar. The way they treat these animals is just horrendous, they are born and raised in tiny cages and then they die horrible deaths by anal and vaginal electrocution and drowning. Sometimes the electrocution doesn't kill them and they wake up while they are being skinned alive. I have a BIG problem with this industry in case you can't tell. It just absolutely disgusts me when people wear fur because of what the poor things had to go through in their lives just to end up being what some consider fashionable. _________________________ Oh Hayden!

Here's the HSUS investigation page on this: http://www.hsus.org/furfree/news/jay_z_raccoon_dog_fur.html You can also watch the footage of how raccoon dogs are treated in China: GRAPHIC! http://www.hsus.org/video_clips/life_and_death_of_chinas.html If you support fur, you should see it, but brace yourself.

Well if anyone else read the article, they would have seen that the manufacturers "thought" it was faux fur, but as soon as they found out what it really was, they pulled the articles from their line and took them off the website....just saying it helps to read the whole article first..... _________________________ Oh Hayden!

Why is it that when someone says something about gay people, they're considered homophobic...but when people criticize Christians, they're considered "enlightened"?

Kevin Bacon is so cool, glad he's using his celebrity to help charities. raccoon-dog fur, does it really matter what kind of fur, he shouldn't be using any fur at all. Marilyn Manson having a mid-life crisis? LOL!
