London: After People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) condemned Reese Witherspoon for carrying a snakeskin bag, the actress has given up on the python skin Chloe bag.

"We`ve long known Reese to be a kind person, so we`re pleased and not surprised that she is hanging up her python bag for good," said a statement from PETA.

"We hope Reese`s honest mistake will serve as a reminder for all of us to be extra-certain that what we`re buying is mock croc or fake snake," it added.

In addition, the group will be sending Witherspoon, who was voted one of the world`s sexiest vegetarians by PETA in 2006, a bunch of flowers, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
