Miss Universe Changes Her Mind

It doesn’t always work out like this—but every now and then, when you let someone know that what they’re doing sucks, they just listen to your concerns, think about the issue in a new way, and make a positive change. When you spend your days dealing with people like Beyonce Knowles, who can sit and watch footage of animals being skinned alive as if it were the latest episode of Total Request Live, it’s incredibly refreshing to hear a story like this one about Miss Universe:

Apparently, after receiving a letter this week from PETA Asia Pacific’s Jason Baker, which explained (in gory detail) exactly how fur coats are made, Miss Universe, aka Riyo Mori, has agreed to stop wearing the stuff. We’re still waiting for confirmation from her that she’s gotten the message loud and clear, but this news sounds really promising.

Now, if the woman officially recognized as the hottest chick in the entire universe can do her stuff without draping herself in dead animals, you’d think a cheap fur-hag like Beyonce could figure out that you can have a killer look without actually killing anything. You’d think.

Anyway, just thought I’d share that piece of good news from The Philippines. I’ll let you know once we get confirmation from Miss U that she really has given up fur for good.
