While the decision was widely applauded by Salma's followers, including Jennifer Aniston and Carrie Ann Inaba, some fans were less overwhelmed. "What a tough life… no fur…" remarked one while a second questioned: "I guess leather and fur is NOT the same thing. So the question is, will they still offer leather goods?"
