Queen Bee fur hag Anna Wintour didn’t really think we’d let her spread her fashion drivel gospel to the masses unfettered, did she?

As the Vogue editor prepared to give a talk at the New York City 92nd Street Y about the “cultural impact” of her rag magazine last night, two PETA members disrupted the event to let attendees know about the ethical impact of Wintour’s relentless promotion of fur.

As one fur foe unfurled a banner from the balcony reading, “Anna Wintour: Fur Shame,” a second activist addressed the crowd, saying, “I apologize for the interruption, but I need to let you know that this woman is contributing to the suffering of millions of animals every year through her continued endorsement of the fur industry, even though she knows that the animals in question are beaten, anally electrocuted, and frequently skinned alive.”

The protesters rabble roused until security escorted them out. We’re hoping that the audience now realizes that Ms. Wintour’s days as Vogue‘s editor should be numbered.
