According to a loyal reader who asked to remain anonymous, the PETA folks are outraged after seeing pictures of troubled singer chris brown modeling his custom mink backpack at US Weekly's 'Stars Who Care' event in LA last night.
"Imagine how many minks they slaughtered so he could look stylish!," wrote my reader, who is a member of PETA. She said she also emailed these pictures of a smiling brown to other PETA members.
According to Answers.com, the American mink is an endangered species.
But the chris brown news isn't all bad. Yesterday, brown was commended and praised by the judge overseeing his domestic abuse case. Judge Patricia Schnegg heaped praise on brown during a brief probation hearing Thursday in a Los Angeles courtroom.
"Out of thousands of probationers, no one has done a better or more consistent job than you have, and I really want to commend you for taking responsibility and for actually working diligently to complete all the things the court has required of you," Schnegg told brown who stood smirking at her.
She added: "I know that you will finish your domestic violence counseling program in just seven more sessions, which is excellent."
brown has completed almost 73 days of his 180 days of community labor, which he's serving in his home state of Virginia. brown was convicted of brutally assaulting his former girlfriend Rihanna on Feb. 8, 2009. He was sentenced in August 2009 to five years' probation in addition to the community service.
