Ricci Fansite Closes Amid Fur Fracas
The animal-loving owner of actress CHRISTINA RICCI's fansite has shut the cyberspace tribute spot down after learning her movie heroine is a fur wearer.
The site www.christinaricci.info now features the message, "offline due to fur usage" followed by a note from the owner, explaining her reasons for shutting the eight-year-old tribute page down.
She writes, "I recently found out Christina doesn't appear to have a problem wearing fur. Well, I do. I also have a problem with people who wear fur. Conclusion: I have a problem with Christina."
The former fansite now links to People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals' website, where fans can read what the animal rights group had to say in its worst dressed feature about Ricci this year (06).
PETA activists were appalled when Ricci recently posed for a magazine cover wearing fur from slaughtered reindeer, and voted her one of the Worst Dressed Celebrities of 2006.
