Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have long been lambasted for including fur in their often outlandish clothing choices but their newest design venture has caused more intense outrage by animals rights groups than ever before!

The latest addition to their luxury fashion line The Row is a patchwork back pack, which retails for a whopping $16,900, and is made from a combination of different furs and rare leather.

PETA is so disgusted by the excessive animal slaughter that went into the designer bag that they have given the twins a unique new nickname and dedicated a whole website to slamming them.

"If it looks like a troll and acts like a troll, it's probably a Trollsen Twin - or someone wearing one of their new $16,000 totes, which are made from the fur and skins of innocent animals," revealed an e-mail statement to from the People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals.

"What the Olsens lack in creativity, they try to make up for in shock value. Sadly, it's the foxes, calves, and alligators -- who often have the fur ripped off them while they are still conscious and able to feel pain -- who pay the dearest price."

At the PETA-created site Meet The Trollsen Twins, animal lovers can play a fun game dressing up the former child stars in a vast array of bloodied fur products such as Butchered Beaver Boots, Skinned Alive Snake Shoes, a Choked Chinchilla Hat and even a Dead Doggie Shoulder Bag.

On a more serious note, the site encourages visitors to send a petition to the pair, who they dub Hairy-Kate and Trashley, to ask them to stop wearing fur.

While it seems unlikely that the millionaires will change their fashion ways, PETA did persuade Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson to give up wearing her mink fur coat after they called her out for it.
