Normally when Martha Stewart bolts from an event, I imagine it is because the walls of the venue are an unacceptable shade of gray, someone is trying to serve her a frozen pizza, or because someone in the audience smells of something that most certainly would NOT end up in the pages of Martha Stewart Living. Martha is on a book tour, and an anti-fur protestor interrupted a stop in New York City to protest Martha Stewart, who wasn’t wearing fur at the time, and Canada Goose, which had nothing to do with the event. Normal!
TMZ says Martha was at Manhattan’s Macy’s in Herald Square hawking The Martha Manuel: How To Do (Almost) Everything! Martha was reading from the book and most likely clucking at the audience, “Gwyneth Paltrow WISHES her soufflé rose like mine!” Well, joke’s on you, Martha! Suddenly, an anti-fur activist you can’t tell me wasn’t a GOOP plant stood up and started screeching about how Martha and Canada Goose have blood on their hands. Props to Martha’s security detail who swatted down the anti-fur activist’s poster and scooted her ass out of there in a matter of seconds.
Now, you’d think a tough broad who has been to prison like Martha would just roll with the punches and keep on reading about the importance of high thread counts, expensive wine, and keeping the Kmart cash in a separate bank account since it spends differently than the coin made off insider trading. Alas, Martha cancelled the rest of her appearance after the whole debacle. Admittedly, she did look pretty spooked from the whole ordeal. The last time Martha had that kind of scare was when the Danbury prison cafeteria told her there wasn’t any fresh rosemary to sprinkle on her mystery meat!
