Vivica A. Fox is busy promoting her new book, Every Day I’m Hustling, recently being confronted by an anti-fur group, during a signing at an NYC Barnes & Noble.
While chatting with fans, a group of protesters entered the store, repeatedly chanting, “stop wearing fur!” Security quickly squared Fox away so they couldn’t reach her, but they continued to shout their message for several minutes.
The actress played it cool, however, telling the group, “God bless you” repeatedly and was even heard saying, “They’re doing their thing.”
Check out the footage below.
Bookstores seem to be the venue of choice for this kind of thing, as the group also ambushed Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland while she promoted her book, Whoa, Baby, last April.
