(Newser) – January has not been kind to the queen of soul. First Aretha Franklin was mocked for her ginormous inauguration hat, and now her Walk of Fame star has been vandalized, Perez Hilton reports. Anti-fur activists scrawled “Fur Hag” across her star in Hollywood after doing the same thing to the Olsen twins' star Sunday.

i actually agree only alittle with c_k, PETA and the ALF are indeed organizations of very questionable repute. extremists of each side, right or left, are very dangerous. when i was in school, i don't remember "leftist dogma" being taught to me. i remember what was thought i was supposed to know being taught to me, and then thinking for myself. clearly, not everyone does that..
