Awful


Paul McCartney's wife Heather Mills McCartney lost her prosthetic leg during a violent confrontation with security guards at Jennifer Lopez's New York office.

The incident happened on Tuesday as the former model-turned animal rights activist attempted to deliver a People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA) DVD showing creatures being killed for fur to Lopez, following a demonstration at which the 37-year-old pleaded with fans to boycott the superstar's music, movies and clothes because she uses fur in her fashion line Sweetface.

After striding into the building opposite Manhattan's Bryant Park, accompanied by an entourage of journalists and photographers, Mills was confronted by security officers who yelled "you have no authority to be here. Get out! Leave the floor immediately!"

In the tussle that ensued, Mills McCartney's prosthetic leg became detached.

She bent down and clutched her knee in pain, before asking to use a bathroom so she could reattach the leg. Guards refused and she was forced to cling onto a photographer.

Photographer Richard Corkery tells 25hoursonline.com, "I saw her touch her knee and I could see she was in pain. She limped to the ladies room but it was locked. I found another door open - it lead on to the stairwell. At least she could have a private moment - which is what she needed."

--How awful!

You Said

Hmm....boy, perhaps the security guards should've just taken the DVD.

Whether or not you're provoked, it's really not good PR to push around a one-legged woman.

I couldn't care less about her leg. She was causing trouble where she had no business being in the first place. I love animals, but I can't stand PETA.

I'm not defending PETA. I've never been much of a fan of the organization either.

I'm just thinking from a PR standpoint on behalf of Jennifer Lopez (another person whom I dislike) and feel her people made the situation far worse than it should've been.

It's never good PR if the story becomes how your "people" knocked around a one-legged woman.

There were other avenues is all I'm saying. I guess I'm just trying to think like a PR monkey too much. :-)

I don't like PETA (or any group of fanatics) and I don't like a one-legged woman being handled in such a manner but McCartney needs to accept a little personal responsibility here. She went to a protest knowing a "tussle" might ensue and knowing she could lose her leg in the mess. I'm sure the fact that it would be a prime attention-grabber for PETA and a black mark against JLo never entered her mind.

Life imitates a Sopranos episode?

PETA is wrong trying to single out Jennifer Lopez as Public Enemy #1. If she stopped designing fur fashions withiin her clothing line tomorrow, pelts would continue to sell, yes? Jennifer may seem an ideal target, but Bennifer is over, and Mrs. Anthony is slowly rebuilding her career. If accounts are true about Office Security, I agree that Mills-Cartney should have been assisted into a restroom to re-attach her prosthetic leg, irregardless of how the incident may have occured (take the high road!).. In any case, by selecting Heather Mills McCartney (whom I recall behaving in an offensive and very rude manner her first time on Larry King) as a leader, PETA shows how out-of-touch they are with the public. Mills-McCartney is so disliked that she makes the former J.Lo seem like Mother Teresa!
