Janet Jackson Fan Selling Off Memorabilia Over Fur Line
One of Janet Jackson's longtime fans is so disgusted by the singer's decision to launch a fur line he's selling his memorabilia collection in protest.
Animal lover Sean Oltersdorf of Michigan has teamed with animal rights activists at PETA to auction off 25 years' worth of Janet collectibles after learning Jackson has teamed up with fur company Blackglama and plans to release a new line of pelts later this year.
He says, "I am a long-time Janet Jackson fan - or I should say I used to be. I am disgusted and have decided I want to auction off my entire 25 years-plus of Janet items and donate the proceeds to PETA.
"I have three rescued chinchillas and find Janet's decision reprehensible."
Oltersdorf's collection, which includes posters, magazines, photos, vinyl and more, will be placed on eBay.com next week.
Jackson's luxury mink collection, which features 15 items ranging from coats to gloves, is due to be released in high-end retailers later this month.
Jackson came under fire from animal-rights campaigners last year after she modelled mink items in an ad campaign for the brand.
