Jennifer Lopez is said to have added two off-duty cops to her security team, following a string of death threats she’s received over her flagrant fur wearing. The letters, believed to be sent from the same person, threaten to: "kill her in public, just like the slaughtered animals whose fur she wears."
Jen’s rep denies the security beef-up. While animal-rights extremist organization PETA hasn’t admitted to sending the threats, a representative did respond to them: "All violence is wrong. But J.Lo needs to stop the real violence she promotes and subsidizes rather than give herself extra protection she doesn’t need." Way to eliminate suspicion, guys!
The thing is that extreme endeavors like death threats or even throwing paint on fur-wearers do nothing to convert people to your side — if anything, aggressive action just pushes them away and makes them less likely to listen to your stance. Attacking a mega-star is foolish anyway: someone like Jennifer Lopez has more than enough money to protect her hide, as it were. [New York Daily News / Image credit: Getty]
