Lindsay Lohan was showered in flour by a PETA member protesting her fur coat on Friday.
Lohan was walking into the VIP Room Theater in Paris with girlfriend Samantha Ronson when the activist poured the white flour over her.
Check out the video:
A PETA spokesperson said, “There is nothing remotely ‘fashionable’ about the torture and death of animals killed for fur. Lindsay Lohan might be able to ignore images of bloody animals skinned alive for their pelts, but we hope a dash of flour will help her rise to the occasion and forsake fur once and for all.”
The stunt didn’t ruin the evening for the lovebirds.
The club owner simply vacuumed Lindsay off and she walked the red carpet again.
Samantha Ronson commented on the incident in her blog:
“PETA should focus their efforts on educating people on what they believe are injustices instead of seeking press via harassing those in the limelight. I received an apology too many days late from the PETA folks (the blog removal was too little too late) and today I’m pissed at the bag of flour thrown on Lindsay last night. Not because I got powdered down, but because the girl who threw it acted like an animal herself. I take that back, it’s an insult to animals to group her in with them, my dog is FAR more civilized than that person. I would have more respect for them if they didn’t use other people to get their point across. Lindsay, Mary Kate, Ashley Olsen, Anna Wintour and the rest of the targeted celebrities aren’t the problem, I’m pretty sure they’re not the only ones wearing fur, in fact, they should be appreciated by PETA for giving them a target. If it weren’t for them, who would get them press?”
