(Newser) – PETA is trying to make life hairy for the Olsen twins, the Sydney Morning Herald reports. The animal rights group, noting that the sisters are still fond of fur, is urging activists to cut off their own locks and send them to the twins for their 22nd birthday today, "since they seem to be in such dire need of extra hair on their bodies."

"Mary-Kate and Ashley are old enough now to know that fur doesn't grow on trees," a PETA director said. "We hope that on their birthday, they will take a moment to think about the many animals who won't live to see another birthday, thanks to the twins' abominable taste in clothes."
