Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn has hit out at protesters from animal rights organisation PETA after they crashed her book launch in protest.

The former member of The Oppenheim Group on the hitNetflix show was promoting her new book, How To Be A Boss B****, when she shared a photo on Twitter of protesters at the event.

The photo showed Christine glaring at a protestor holding up a banner next to her as other attendees at the event looked on.

A second picture revealed one of the posters brandished by protestors was a mock-up of her new book cover, replacing the title with the words “How To Be A Heartless B****.”

Christine wrote alongside the snap: “Hi @PETA thank you for sending your goons in to buy my books! I am so honoured you are a fan,” calling the protest a “comedy show”.

Christine is known for her stylish wardrobe, with her Selling Sunset outfits leading to her being dubbed the show’s “fashion icon” – but her looks have not pleased everyone.

The luxury real estate star has made no secret of the fact that she wears animal products, including real leathers and furs.

“I love the exotic,” she toldNylon back in 2020 as she revealed that she loved collecting animal purses and had recently added a crocodile bag to her collection. “PETA come kill me, I don’t really care.”

Christine also angered animal rights activists when she revealed that she had introduced a tiger onto the premises to bump up security at her LA home after receiving death threats.

The star said at the time: “I joked, ‘If guns and dogs don’t scare people, we need a tiger’ – then I decided it would be really fun to do that.

“So we found this guy who trains tigers as pets and got one.”

Jason Oppenheim recently opened up about Christine’s future at The Oppenheim Group in Selling Sunset: The Reunion.

The star told host Tan France: “Right now, there’s not a place for her at The Oppenheim Group,” adding that things might change if Christine “takes real estate seriously” and “changes her behaviour”.

His comments came after Christine announced that she had launched her own company RealOpen.com.
