Jessica Simpson had some unexpected disruptions during her book event with Katherine Schwarzenegger on Monday night when aminal rights protestors interrupted her Q&A twice by begging the 39-year-old not to wear fur. It all went down in Los Angeles at the Aratani Theatre last night when protestors disrupted her live talks with audience members when one person jumped up and began yelling, "Please stop wearing animals, please stop wearing fur." But according to Just Jared, the protestor didn't stop there.

The protestor then added, "There are so many other choices. Please stop wearing fur, Jessica. Animals are electrocuted!" They were then removed from the event, according to the outlet. Photos from the event show protestors wearing shirts and holding up signs aimed at Jessica Simpson. One person's shirt called the singer "an animal abuser," while others held up painted signs reading, "Fur is dead." This comes just days after the "Open Book" author was confronted by another group of protestors during her signing at Union Square Barnes & Noble in New York City where they too confronted her about wearing animal fur. While that chaotic scene left Jessica Simpson being whisked away by security, Monday night the star held her ground.

Speaking directly to the animal rights protestors, Jessica Simpson took control and addressed the situation head-on. "God bless you guys! It's beautiful that you stand up for what you believe, but not through hatred," she told the activists. Continuing with her thought, the Grammy-winner stated, "These are the types of moments where you know, when you're trying to speak about helping other people get through their own problems and their life, and when you talk about god, that is when darkness tries to seep in." Applying her faith into the situation, Jessica Simpson added, "And I know that god is stronger than that and nothing will hold me back from my calling."

While Jessica Simpson is known for wearing fur and leather, during last night's event she was sporting a sleek black dress to show off her body transformation. As The Blast reported, the mom of three shed 100-pounds after giving birth to her daughter Birdie less than one year ago. Jessica Simpson has caused chaos with her bold outfit choices during her book tour but her weight loss isn't the only thing she's revealed. In her memoir, she gets deep revealing she was sexually abused at 6 years old. Jessica Simpson also wrote that she abused prescription drugs and alcohol to mask the trauma. Her book discusses issues of body confidence, as well as her failed marriage to Nick Lachey, among several other topics.
