Celebrities Rally Against The Cruel Fur Trade

Ahead of the international day of action ‘Fur Free Friday’ on November 24th (Black Friday), comedian Sara Pascoe and actor Peter Egan have joined ranks with a growing number of celebrities backing a campaign by Animal Defenders International (Adi) to end the cruel fur trade.

Peter Egan said: “Don’t be fooled, fur is far from humane. Trapped in tiny cages, the animals endure a terrible life, and death. Please, never support this cruel industry. Join Adi and make a difference.”

Sara Pascoe said: “With so many alternatives to fur available, no animal need suffer. Using the real thing is cruel and unnecessary. Please join me and Adi in supporting the designers whose fabrics, but not principles, are fake.”

Since the launch of Adi’s shocking films ‘A Lifetime’ about the brutal short lives of two foxes, brothers Borys and Eryk, and ‘Never Humane’ exposing inhumane killing on a Polish fur farm,

Adi placed hidden cameras on the farm to capture this rare insight into an industry that kills more than 100 million animals a year.

Joanna Lumley and Brian Blessed are backing Adi’s campaign to end the fur trade.

Animal Defenders International President Jan Creamer said: “Over 100 million animals die for their fur every year.

FX Cancels Denis Leary’s ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’
FX has canceled Denis Leary’s “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,” after two seasons, sources confirm to Variety.

FX declined to comment on the series’ fate.

The half-hour rock-n-roll comedy wrapped up its second season earlier this month on September 1, bringing in just 450,000 viewers for its final episode — which will now serve as the series finale.

Leary created, starred and exec produced the series for which he also wrote the music. He played Johnny Rock, an egomaniacal fiftysomething has-been musician who’s dying for fame, and starred alongside John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales.

Speaking to Variety before the show launched in summer 2015, Leary said the show was risky and he wasn’t sure if it would work. “You never know,” he said. “I’m a true Irishman — an optimistic pessimist. That way, you’re always prepared for the worst.”
