  • Mary Kate and Ashley dubbed the Trollson twins by PeTA

    Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have become the latest celebrities to offend animal rights group PeTA, by regularly wearing fur and including fur items in their clothing line.

    PeTA claims that the twins ‘have ignored pleas to stop wearing fur and are still using it in their fashion collection.’ As a result the group has dubbed the Olsens ‘Hairy Kate and Trashly, the Trollson Twins.’

    As part of the campaign, PeTA has unveiled a poster featuring the Olsens with the tagline ‘fur is worn by beautiful animals and ugly people.’ The poster was yesterday revealed at the twins star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, LA. PeTA has also added a feature to their web site where you can dress up the ghoulish looking Trollson’s in an array of dead animal clothing, such as the doomed raccoon hats, kitty clutch and dead doggies bag.
