Britney Removed from Worst-Dressed-List Consideration

Britney in Furs

You know, maybe there is something to all this “Leave Britney alone” hoopla. Given her recent trip to the psych ward, it’s becoming more and more clear that she’s not entirely accountable for her actions—and that includes her poor fashion choices just as much as it does her bad parenting decisions.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to give Britney a bit of a break this year, and take her off the Worst-Dressed-List poll, despite the fact that she had established herself as a strong front-runner in the first two days of voting. Here’s what PETA Vice President Dan Mathews had to say about the decision:

“People with l’il kids shouldn’t dress like L’il Kim. But at this point, Britney needs a break—from everybody. Maybe when her head is clear, she’ll have a change of heart about wearing fur. If not, we’ll be back biting at her heels.”

So there you have it, but the question is, did we make the right choice in giving Brit a break this year despite her unfortunate penchant for, um, flaunting her fur in public? Please feel free to comment with your thoughts.
