[[AC:{{Literature}}]] * Genius Pixie Opal Koboi in Literature/ArtemisFowl: the Opal Deception has fur-covered seats in her custom-built luxury shuttle, as a sign of her leaving behind the fairy world (most fairies are vegan), and embracing [[HumansAreBastards the human world]]. It should be noted that leather doesn't get a pass in this setting, either; had the seats been made of leather it would have been just as abhorrent to the fairies. However, even Artemis is disgusted by the fur seats.

* In ''It Could Happen To You'' one of the first things Muriel buys with the lottery money is a fur coat, only to be immediately splashed with red paint by protesters.

* Many of the [[StrawMan Straw Men]] that inhabit ''Webcomic/VeganArtbook'' but [[CountryMatters Cuntons]] stands out in particular. She hates all animals except her pets for [[ForTheEvulz reasons]] and loathes wolves in particular for [[ForTheEvulz more reasons]]. So naturally she killed a wolf and now wears its skinned head as a very ghoulish hat.

* ''{{Casino}}'', ''{{Goodfellas}}'', and ''Series/TheSopranos''. People wear fur, but they're in, or related to, the mob. * In ''SisterAct'' Deloris gets a mink coat from her mobster boyfriend and is upset that he's actually given her his wife's fur. She goes to confront him about it and witnesses a murder than that sets up the movie. The fur was used to show Whoopi's character was a bit TheVamp at the beginning of the movie and to show that her boyfriend was mobster. * In ''MissPettigrewLivesForADay'', Delysia Lafosse seems to like wearing fur. She even comments on how nice it feels on the skin. However, she makes this comment when she's supposed to be in the middle of a "serious" conversation. Then again, this may not count if that scene was in the original book, which was published in 1938.

[[AC:{{FanFiction}}]] * This [[http://olieboldador.deviantart.com/art/Dresden-Files-Queen-Mab-478002029 fanart]] of [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Queen Mab]] shows her wearing a fox-fur shawl (complete with taxidermied eyes and nose)- one of many ways the image implies her callous, fearsome personality.

* One of CartoonNetwork's ''WhatACartoon'' one-shots, ''Yoink Of the Yukon'', revolved around [[BearsAreBadNews a grizzly bear named Nook]] and his feud with the Royal Canadian Mounties over their allowal of fur trapping in the Yukon. Mind you, this being meant for comedy, fur trapping here is portrayed as literally stealing the clothes off the critters backs, leaving then naked and freezing in the snow. The issue is resolved when the main charactr Yoink, after much conflict, ends up outfitting all of Nooks friends with a set of tuxedos he got off the Home Shopping Network. --> '''Yoink''': It was the best I could do on such short notice, eh?

It should be noted that cavemen, [[MagicalNativeAmerican Native Americans]] and arctic tribes like the Inuit never wear fur, they wear ''skins'', so it's all right, since it makes you CloserToEarth as a culture. Note that in RealLife, Inuit and northern Indians actually do wear fur in modern days, and not the synthetic kind which doesn't retain heat as well. Political correctness goes out the window at 40 below. Same goes with [[GrimUpNorth Russians]], who aren't politically correct people in general but are baffled by this trend especially.
