PICKETED: Dozens of protesters representing People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals greeted Jennifer Lopez at the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie Monster-in-Law with signs declaring her the "monster-in-fur" for her Sweetface fashion collection, the Associated Press reports. The protesters, who included some people dressed in animal suits, complained that they have asked several times that Lopez eliminate fur from her clothing line but have been ignored. "She could make a difference in a positive manner, and what she does is cause the death of a lot of animals," said protester Linda Kraemer. Asked what she thought of the protesters, Lopez replied: "I don't."
