Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's book signing attracts masked animal rights protesters

Two representatives from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
- who call themselves the Trollsen Twins - wore masks designed by the
organization and held signs condemning the pair's penchant for fur at the
New York event for the Olsen's new fashion bible 'Influence'.
The placards read 'Trollsens Fur Hags From Hell' and 'Hairy Kate + Ashley
Olsen: Fur Tramps'.
Ashley Byrne, PETA campaign coordinator, admits the demonstration may not
have been seen by the stars themselves, but they would have been aware of
their presence.
She said: "They can hustle in the back of a book signing and they can avoid
these PETA protesters, a lot of who grew up being fans.
"But they really can't avoid the fact that when they make these ugly
decisions, it shows and it turns off their fans."
Dan Shannon, PETA's assistant director of youth campaigns, added: "From
their ghoulish garb to their skeletal frames, every day is Halloween if
you're an Olsen twin."
The signing - held at the city's Barnes + Noble bookstore - was restricted
by a strict set of nine strict rules which demands fans must accept the
books in silence and cannot take pictures.
