After reading about Christina Ricci's continued refusal to stop wearing dead animals (including, for God's sake, reindeer), Dodger, the owner of Ricci's biggest fansite, replaced all of the site's information about her—including more than 900 photos—with PETA anti-fur ads and the following inscription:
Offline due to fur usageWell, that's it. I've had this Christina Ricci fan page for almost 8 years (since january 1999), but I recently found out Christina doesn't appear to have a problem wearing fur. Well, I do. I also have a problem with people who wear fur. Conclusion: I have a problem with Christina. And now that problem is solved, because I don't have a website about her anymore, so I no longer have anything to do with her.
When E! Online's gossip columnist heard about the story, he immediately contacted Ricci's publicist, who was evidently all dismissive and uppity about it … until she found out that Dodger's page is the second thing that comes up on Google and a bunch of other search engines if you search for Christina Ricci. You can read E!'s take on the story here, and check out Dodger's powerful message to Christina here.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
