Christina Ricci has finally realized that wearing baby reindeer on your back just ain't right. The actress has been under fire since posing for the cover of W Magazine wrapped reindeer fur (gah!) and it even earned her a spot on PETA's 2006 worst dressed list. Then some kid who ran one of her fan sites for almost 8 years was so bothered by Christina mixing it up with Rudolph that he dropped his support of the actress and closed her site down. After all the harsh criticism and maybe even realizing that December is probably the worst time to wear slaughtered reindeer, Ricci wrote the following letter to PETA:
"After being named on the PETA worst dressed list for wearing fur on the cover of W magazine, I have been deluged with angry and disappointed fans. "I never meant to hurt nor anger anyone with my insensitivity. For what it is worth I have received the message loud and clear and will not be wearing fur in the future. I apologize for my offensive actions."
I give big props to Ricci for having the brains and respect to apologize for a stupid move (albeit I'm sure it was not an outfit she picked out herself; maybe W should have apologized for having her wear the reindeer). No word yet on if Nicole Richie, Ashley Olsen or Eva Longoria, who are the other celebrities that made PETA's worst dressed list, have apologized like Ricci for wearing fur.
