Ha Ha

British fashion house Burberry's Milan Fashion Week show in Italy last night was wrecked by animal activists protesting the company's use of fur. 3 People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) activists stood holding 'Burberry: Fur Shame' placards charged the runway at the glitzy fashion show, disrupting the invitation-only event. The protestors were quickly escorted out of the show and released. Ironically, one of the attendees at the show was Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who has been a longtime PETA target. Lucky for her she was saves another tofu pie in the face. A PETA spokesman says, "We have met with Burberry executives and screened a video that shows graphic footage of animals who are suffering on fur farms and in traps. "But, unlike a growing number of fashion companies that are fur-free, Burberry continues to sell real fur. This is unacceptable." --
