Since writing a blog post denouncing voters for passing an animal rights proposition, while rejecting gay rights measures, Samantha Ronson has received an inbox full of “furious emails” from animal activists, she says.

“I apparently offended some animal lovers,” Lindsay Lohan‘s gal pal writes in a new MySpace entry. “Um, really people? I love animals as much as anyone, I don’t eat pork – so for those of you fighting that good fight against me … shut up!”

Last week, Ronson, 31, wrote an entry on her MySpace celebrity blog comparing the newly-granted animal rights to the rejection of several gay rights initiatives in various states.”I just think it’s frightening that people show more compassion for tomorrow’s dinner than for the chef,” she wrote at the time.

Defending her stance, Ronson writes in the new post: “I was just pointing out the fact that people in California seem to care more about animal rights than human rights I’m not running around killing chickens for fun or firing a slingshot at a squirrel.”

And if people still have a problem with her political stances, she says, “Don’t read my blogs. It’s that simple!”
