Jennifer Lopez slammed for wearing fur at 'Hustlers' film festival premiere
Jennifer Lopez appeared unfazed as she was lambasted by anti-fur protesters at the Hustlers premiere, which took place at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday night.
In a video obtained by TMZ, protestors holding signs can be heard shouting, "Shame on you, JLo, for wearing fur! Shame on you for wearing fur Jennifer Lopez! Stop wearing fur Jennifer Lopez! Stop wearing fur JLo! Stop wearing fox fur!"
One went so far as to claim that J-Lo has killed "thousands of animals" by wearing fur, and another corroborated that she has "blood on her hands".
Watch Jennifer Lopez twerk with Alex Rodriguez:
While Jennifer wasn't wearing any fur at the premiere, she does in Hustlers, and has posted photos of herself in a fur coat from the film on her Instagram account. It is unclear, however, if it was real of faux.
The 50-year-old did not appear to respond to the demonstrators.
The performer recently opened up to Variety about how uncomfortable she was during certain parts of filming.
"It's not like me being on stage with a bunch of tights and fishnets on and bodysuits," she said of the required wardrobe. "Those are sexy costumes. This is another level. You're out there naked!"
In one scene, J-Lo dances in a G-string to solidify her character's reputation as New York's most cunning stripper. "I was terrified," she revealed. I was like, 'I’ve never done anything like this. I’m going to be up there in f*cking dental floss. What is this? Who is this person?'"
Watch J-Lo work out before a big show:
Jennifer plays a stripper called Ramona in the feature, which is based on a true story reported in New York Magazine about strippers who conned their Wall Street clients out of money.
She stars aside rapper, Cardi B, Constance Wu, Lizzo, Keke Palmer and Lili Reinhart.
