Christina begs fur forgiveness

Actress Christina Ricci has promised never to wear fur again after being barraged with angry letters from fans. The actress’ turn-around came after she was named People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) Worst Dressed Celebrity of 2006 for appearing in fur on the cover of a magazine. She says, “After being named on the PETA worst dressed list for wearing fur, I have been deluged with angry and disappointed fans. 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 apologise for my offensive actions.” PETA have responded to Christina’s apology by removing her from the Worst Dressed list and sending her a Christmas basket full of “cruelty-free goodies to thank her for her compassionate decision.” [22 December 2006]
