* In ''Film/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.

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 and tend to think anti-fur activists are [[AnimalWrongsGroup all deranged freaks]].

This is not about the politics of wearing fur, but simply how the mainstream media portrays it since the mid 1980s. In that time, groups such as PETA finally gained some traction, through celebrities building up a BandWagonTechnique. Wearing animal fur was considered the mark of evil. Leather is usually given a pass since the rest of the animal was killed for meat anyway, "and would ''you'' tell a [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels 300-pound biker]] to give up his jacket[[note]][[http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/peta-crashes-biker-gathering-not-to-be-missed/27275 someone did...]][[/note]]?"[[note]]Footnote in a novel by ''Creator/TerryPratchett''[[/note]] but fur industry revenues went into a decline through the late '80s and '90s.

Yet this didn't last long. Some other celebrities came along later decided to rebel against the curve, particularly rappers and hip-hop artists. Combined with sites like eBay marketing inexpensive furs, fur has seen a comeback in recent decades. Just go to photo sharing sites and look up "Fur coat", "mink", and even "pimp coat".
