The Fur Flies at Forever 21

During the first week of December, Forever 21, a retail store based in Calif. said they would pull all their rabbit fur in response to animal rights protestors. And while I would never underestimate the power of a 13-year old girl to get hysterical over fur (I know I did), I'm not completely convinced that this was about protecting animal rights. Could it be that Forever 21 needed a reason to drum up a little publicity? Cause let's face it, half the teen stores in the mall are still selling those ugly-ass ponchos. Which brings up another possibility--can you think of a better excuse to cancel a bunch of not-selling ponchos at the last minute ? I can't.
