Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have reportedly long ignored pleas to remove fur from their fashion collection and their own wardrobes. Now, the thin-twins are getting some publicity that will have them running so fast you’d think they had spotted a calorie!
Peta2 has launched a new website totally devoted to the “Trollsens” that coincides with the peta2 Olsen Twins ad unveiling at the Olsens’ Walk of Fame star on Hollywood Boulevard.
The site, on which the child-actresses are known as “Hairy-Kate” and “Trashley,” features a “Fatal Fashion” animated dress-up game complete; a mash-up video called “Full House of Horrors,” featuring footage from the twins’ former TV show “Full House” interspersed with scenes of animals being killed for fur; and information about actions visitors can take to get through to the seemingly ethics-challenged 21-year-olds. Visitors to the site can also pick up free Web banners showing the “Trollsen” sisters draped in animal skins—and blood.
The ad, carries the tagline “Fur Is Worn by Beautiful Animals and Ugly People”. “No one would argue that Mary-Kate and Ashley could use some meat on their bones, but the last thing they need is hair on their backs—especially when it belongs to someone else,” says peta2 Assistant Director of Youth Campaigns Dan Shannon. “These two are a couple of real lightweights when it comes to both taste and compassion.”
