Lopez Under Threat From Animal Rights Group

JENNIFER LOPEZ has been named as a target for animal rights campaigners thanks to her controversial taste for wearing real fur.

PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS (PETA) label the GET RIGHT queen an "apathetic fur hag" and have issued a chilling warning - they will be waiting for her at public and US television appearances.

PETA's vice president DAN MATHEWS tells PAGE SIX.COM, "PETA has her in our sights.

"On April 29 (05), we'll be waiting for her outside JAY LENO's TONIGHT show studios at 4pm with a 30 foot inflatable beaver with a banner saying, 'Fur - Leave it to Beaver.' We'll have a massive protest at the LA premiere of MONSTER-IN-LAW with posters showing Lopez in pelts and the logo of the movie adapted to read 'Monster-in-Fur'.

"We'll also be at the Atlanta premiere she's supposed to attend with JANE FONDA on May 5 (05). Maybe Jane can inform the apathetic fur hag what a protest is. She sure is keeping our interns busy! She's providing us with endless opportunities to show what happens when a star so thoughtlessly pushes such a violent industry."

This isn't the first time Lopez has been attacked by PETA - she was trapped by PETA activists during a signing session at the VIRGIN MEGASTORE in New York's Times Square last month (MAR05).

Mathews recalls, "We had three people strategically placed on line to meet her and we showed videos of animals being electrocuted and skinned alive outside - it had a big effect on people going in."
