As an animal lover and (now ex-)fan of Janet Jackson, I have been shocked about her decision to launch a fur line with Blackglama. She was always believed to be an animal lover, grew up around all types of animals, fed and loved them. According to PETA, she even spoke out against the wearing of fur in the past, so her decision has lead to a lot of questions among fans and animal lovers... questions she has never answered. At least not yet.
This petition is still open, and there have been no recent reports about the launching of her fur line. Recently, few people have signed, but I would love to see the goal of 10,000 people reached.
Please sign the petition for the sake of animals, whether you care about Ms. Jackson or not. It only takes a few seconds. Maybe she will think it over or give an explanation.

No woman looks beautiful in fur. On the contrary, it demeans her and presents her at best as ignorant and thoughtless, and at worst as downright cold-hearted.
One positive though is that for such a high-profile figure to condone fur gives us AR people the chance to use it to promote the AR & anti-fur message in the media.
