At last we have proof that Simon Cowell's bark is, in fact, worse than his bite. The American Idol meanie is the latest celebrity to join PETA's anti-fur campaign. In a new print ad, the secret softy is pictured holding a four-legged friend; underneath the photo is the line, "If you wouldn't wear your dog, please don't wear any fur." Now would somebody please do something about the inhumanity of Cowell being forced to sit next to Paula Abdul season after season?
