EX-SEX KITTEN BARDOT CONVICTED

Former screen goddess Brigitte Bardot was convicted of provoking racial hatred against Muslims, claiming that they are destroying France.

The court also slapped BB with $23,325 fine and to pay an additional $1,555 in damages.

France has very harsh laws against spreading and inciting racial hatred and discrimination.

This is the fifth conviction for the 73 year -old animal rights activist and bigot.

Bardot had written a harsh letter to French President Sarkozy condemning the Muslim rite of Aid el-Kebir which features the wholesale slaughter of sheep.

Bardot's lawyer, Francois-Xavier Kelidjian, plans an appeal.

"Bardot has the impression that people want to silence her," he stated.

"She will not be silenced in her defense of animal rights."
