US: 'Fur Scum' protest hits Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Date: 15 Nov 2002

Animal rights protestors invaded the taping of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show to protest the contract between the leading American fur company Blackglama and supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Carrying signs that said "Gisele: Fur Scum," four members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) ran on stage before being taken away by security guards. The section was then refilmed.

The lingerie maker, owned primarily by The Limited Inc., paid to produce the fashion show for ABC and was also responsible for buying most of the commercial time on the hour, to either use itself or sell to others.
