Rihanna at 'RiRi' perfume launch in Brooklyn

Rihanna had an unwanted guest at her new perfume launch at a Macy's in Brooklyn on September 1.

The singer's 'RiRi' launch was crashed by anti-fur protesters who slammed the singer for wearing fur before being removed by security.

In a newly released video, both Macy's and Rihanna's own security teams got into a scuffle with the animal rights activist who chanted and held up anti-fur signs.

The guards pulled down the demonstrators’ signs, which said such things as “Who Died For Your Coat?” and “Skinned Alive,” alongside images of dead and skinned animals. The picketers also repeatedly yelled “Shame on Rihanna” while marching through the department store.

In September, anti-animal group PETA slammed Rihanna after photos were released of the singer wearing snakeskin boots. A similar incident occurred to Kim Kardashian back in May when a mob of angry anti-fur protesters interrupted her book signing at a New York Barnes & Noble. While Kardashian was signing copies of her new book, a swarm of animal activists rushed the barricades to yell at the fur-wearing reality star.
