Furries are angry that Lindsay Lohan is selling a 'fursona' NFT



The furry community is angry that Lindsay Lohan is selling an NFT design of herself as an anthropomorphic dog. (Personalized animal characters are called 'fursonas' in the furry fandom)

Lohan's design is being auctioned at the Canine Cartel, an online community that offers NFTs (non-fungible tokens) of special dog avatars. The starting bid is .5 ethereum, which translates into about $1,500.

Rolling Stone asked 'furries' their thoughts on Lohan's design, and many were outraged.

An artist in the furry community states, “It reminds me in a way of frequently insecure straight artists rendering furries: [diminish] and reduce furry traits so as to not ‘commit’ to what you’re doing. Ears covered, why? Feels like it’s avoiding animal traits on purpose.”
