Brooke Shields and PETA Face Off over Fur!

Brooke Shields has PETA roaring! The actress, who recently headed to Denmark to fulfill a childhood dream of designing a mink coat, has gotten the animal rights organization in quite a huff, and they've taken to their website to express their dislike for the Furry Vengeance star's latest actions.

"When I was a little girl, I dreamed about growing up to be a rock star," a post on their website read. "Or maybe a veterinarian. Or a roller derby queen. I didn't dream about anally electrocuting animals on fur farms, but apparently Brooke Shields did."

Shields has been outspoken about her love for fur fashion. "I will advocate that both my generation and the younger generation can wear fur," she once said. "I will wear the fur garment when I follow my children to school, when I drink coffee and when I sleep."

Obviously those comments didn't go over well with PETA, who got personal and sent an even lower blow to Shields.

"We understand that when some actors' careers begin to fade, they'll do just about anything to stay in the limelight, including appearing in eyelash-growing commercials and starring in short-lived TV shows," another post said. "But Brooke, did you really want the world to remember you as a 'fur pimp' who stares agog at rows of animal skins?"

Talk about biting back!
