Kelly Rowland is in the midst of promoting her newly released book Whoa, Baby!. During a book signing in Ridgewood, New Jersey, Kelly was interrupted by anti-fur protesters.

The singer, who has been draped in fur on numerous occasions, stood to the side of the stage as they chanted ‘Kelly Rowland has blood on her hands!’ The protesters arrived to the book signing, where they pretended to be fans and asked for a photo with the star. Before the snap, they rolled down their posters for the cameras and began chanting. The protesters held up signs with graphic images of animals who are killed for their fur, which messages like: ‘I don’t want to die. Say no to fur.’

Kelly, who was dressed in a silky yellow top and trousers, stood silently on the side of the stage as they demonstrated. The protesters were led out as Kelly headed to a back room; police were not called.
