This story is from our affiliate TheirTurn.net – Animal rights activists have pleaded with fashion designer Michael Kors to stop using – and promoting – fur. But, on June 21st, 2017 they stopped asking nicely. As Kors delivered remarks to a packed theater at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, an event moderated by fashionista Alina Cho of Penguin Random House division Ballantine Bantam Dell, more than 20 animal rights activists occupied the stage and the balcony while chanting and playing the sounds of animals being killed for fur. After several minutes, event organizers escorted Kors out of the theater, shutting down the event for approximately ten minutes. The protest video aired on TMZ where managing editor Harvey Levin commented, “I really believe in my heart that, in fifty years, nobody will wear fur,” and “…people will look at this video and say good for them.” Michael Kors and Alina Cho are invited on JaneUnChained.com at any time to respond.
