Christina Ricci Gives Up Fur!

Published by PETA.

Less than a week after the story broke that Christina Ricci’s biggest fansite had taken down all its Christina paraphernalia and replaced it with anti-fur messages following her appearance on PETA’s Worst Dressed List, Ms. Ricci has vowed to give up fur for good. In an e-mail to PETA VP Dan Mathews this week, she wrote, “I never meant to hurt nor anger anyone with my insensitivity. For what it is worth, I have received the message loud and clear and will not be wearing fur in the future. I apologize for my offensive actions.”

As a thank you to Christina, we’ve sent her a Christmas basket of goodies and removed her from the Worst Dressed List. A huge thank you is also due to Dodger, who runs the fansite in question. It’s kind of next-level to be able to have such a massive effect on a celebrity you’re into just by expressing your convictions. The experience has given me hope for all the wonderful things I can do with the fansite I just made for myself.

The story got pickup from E! Entertainment television (and online) and The San Francisco Chronicle among other news outlets, and there’s also a great piece about it on Pink Is the New Blog.
