The protesters, who held signs reading "Fur Tramps" and "Fur Hags from Hell," want the Olsens to stop wearing fur.

"Compassionate fashionistas know that real beauty comes from the heart, but Mary Kate and Ashley seem to know nothing about that since they support an industry that treats animals so brutally," a PETA Spokesperson told X17online.

Some of the protesters wore Olsen twin masks as they urged the former Full House stars to join other celebrities who've given up fur.

"There are many stars that have switched to synthetic fur there's no reason for them to still wear fur," a protester said.

The Olsens have yet to comment on the protests.
