Animal lover Sharon Osbourne is urging her fans to boycott a range of foxtail handbag accessories designed by Louis Vuitton - because the luxury goods are "heinous".
The rock matriarch and reality TV star has issued a plea to her followers on Twitter.com, begging them not to support the use of fur in the fashion industry.
And Osbourne has singled out one set of fur accessories by the popular designer brand.
In a post on her blog, she writes, "Louis Vuitton foxtail handbag accessories make me sick. Please do not purchase those! It's heinous."
And the star's defiant stance has won her high praise from representatives at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
The animal rights campaigners say, "As designers flaunted fur during Fashion Week in New York, and the usual suspects are expected to be as vulgar in Milan and Paris, we're pleased Sharon is using her voice to denounce the cruelty."
