Fellow musician Iggy Pop was on hand to show support, pose for pictures and to present Joan with the Nanci Alexander Activist Award.
‘The Real Housewives of Miami‘ cast member and former ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ alum Joanna Krupa is taking it ALMOST all off for animals in her brand-new PETA ad, in which she points out the absurdity of wearing fur and fur trim by wearing “a bit” of it herself.
A behind-the-scenes look at Krupa’s racy photo shoot was seen on last night’s episode of Housewives on the Bravo network.
“I wanted to do this campaign to keep talking to people about how bad fur is. Stop! Fur is not sexy. It’s not cool,” Krupa says in her exclusive PETA interview. “You’re walking down the street wearing fur—you really look like an idiot!”
Animals who are killed for fur endure excruciating pain and suffering. Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives in cramped, filthy cages before they are violently killed by poisoning, genital electrocution, or drowning or are strangled with wire nooses. As PETA undercover investigations have revealed, animals are often skinned while conscious and able to feel pain.
PETA protesters hold signs that read “NBC: Animal Mal-Practice” and “I Don’t Want to Be in Your Damn TV Show” as they wear monkey masks to protest the show “Animal Practice” at NBC’s headquarters in Hollywood.
PETA members—along with primate experts Dr. Mel Richardson and Kari Bagnall—gathered outside NBC’s North Hollywood offices on Wednesday for a protest and news conference that addressed the cruelty inherent in Animal Practice‘s use of wild-animal “actors” such as Crystal, the capuchin monkey who stars in the series.
The experts were on hand to explain how previous sitcoms featuring monkeys, such as NBC’s Friends, caused a flood of discarded “pet” monkeys at primate sanctuaries across the country, when misguided owners realized that they were unable to meet these complex animals’ specialized needs. They also addressed how monkeys suffer behind the scenes during training and throughout their lives in captivity.
“The cheap laughs that Animal Practice gets from putting a monkey in a lab coat come at a heavy cost for animals, who spend their lives deprived of everything that is natural and important to them,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Animal Practice‘s brand of ‘comedy’ is as cruel as it is creatively bankrupt.”
The “smile” that Crystal exhibits on the show is actually an expression that indicates fear and stress in capuchin monkeys. Capuchin expert Dr. Eduardo Ottoni states, “[S]ince we do not usually understand their communicative behaviors properly, fear, submission, or avoidance displays can easily be mistaken for ‘smiles.'”
Three unabashed protesters took to the streets — and pavement — of New York City’s Times Square today to stage the latest PETA protest which aimed to encourage meat-eaters to go vegan.
While others held signs that read ‘Meat is Murder’ the trio stripped down to get covered in red paint and wrapped in cellophane, mimicking meat packages.
Large stickers on the ‘packages’ read ‘Billions of Animals Are Abused and Violently Killed Because You Eat Meat. Get Help! Visit GoVeg.com’.
Senior PETA campaigner Ashley Byrne was quoted as saying, “We are challenging people to really think about what ‘meat’ is. When you eat flesh, you’re eating the corpse of an abused animal who did not want to die. We’re encouraging kind consumers to try going vegan.”
It’ll really make ya’ think twice next time you walk down that grocery store meat isle.
You could be fooled by smokin’ hot animal rights activist and actress Pam Anderson’s latest PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) ad, as it looks more like a pin-up than a pro-vegetarianism poster, but you’d be forgiven.
Although, who knows if Pam will forgive Montreal officials who denied her and PETA a permit to unveil the new ad at Old Montreal’s Place Jacques-Cartier today.
Anderson, who was in town to host a gala event for Montreal’s Just For Laughs comic festival, was forced to unveil the new PETA print at different location after officials deemed it as sexist.
Pammie was quoted as saying, “In a city that is known for its exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest over the suffering of cows and chickens. In some parts of the world, women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas – is that next? I didn’t think that Canada would be so puritanical.”
This is one of the sexy scenes from PETA’s Veggie Love campaign that NBC refused to air for being to rauncy for TV.
The ad was due to be aired during the Super Bowl today but NBC sent this list of required cuts before it would reconsider running it: licking pumpkin, touching her breast with her hand while eating broccoli, pumpkin from behind between legs, screwing herself with broccoli (fuzzy) and licking eggplant!
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen had their book signing the other day, and PETA was there to represent! A bunch of people showed up holding signs and Halloween-ish masks of the sisters, protesting their fur-enhanced wardrobe. I like what they did with the Trollsen thing. Those PETA supporters are so creative!
And really, I haven’t seen those masks anywhere. I bet one of them is all crafty and hand made them using non-horse organic glue. Martha Stewart better watch her back, soon the PETA people will be taking over her empire!
GO PETA, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!
These pictures are hot off of my laptop, sent directly from Milan. A bunch of PETA people are currently protesting outside of an Armani boutique in Italy. I have to say, the Photoshopped Pinocchio nose is rather clever. Still, Armani manages to pull it off while maintaining the sexy. Go figure.
ANYWAY, this is what Dan Matthews, the VP at PETA and all-around hottie, had to say about the matter:
“Armani is a liar. Last year, after viewing our documentary about furs, he told us he’d never used fur again.”
I also saw that documentary. You know what it taught me? That under no circumstances to I ever want to be on PETA’s bad side. Those people don’t play around when it comes to animal activism!
I am Paul McCartney, and I am a vegetarian! So says McCartney’s new ad for PETA. In the ad, he says “Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realized, ‘I am killing him — all for the passing pleasure it brings me.’ And something inside me clicked. I realized as I watched him fight for breath, that his life was as important to him as mine is to me.”
Jenna Jameson dons a black wig and “pleather” bikini, evoking screen siren Bettie Page in a SINthetic new PETA ad called “Pleather Yourself: Discover the Pleasure of Pleather.” She unveiled the new ad tonight during L.A. Fashion Week.
“It is OK to be an animal in bed, but not at the expense of real animals,” says Jameson. “Pleather yourself every day, every night, every chance you get! Anybody who knows me knows that I’ve kind of lived half my live in pleather. And if I can show off the hot look of pleather and convert a few leather lovers, then mission accomplished. The outfit that I’m wearing in the ad is so sexy that I suggest if people want to have a better time in the bedroom – then please explore the pleather side.”
In PETA’s most recent advertisements, both Roselyn Sanchez and Steve-O would rather go naked than wearing fur. These are just the latest celebs to appear naked in PETA ads. Others who have renounced fur in similar ads are Eva Mendes, Joanna Krupa, Todd Oldham, Kathy Najimi, Christy Turlington and Vanessa Olivarez, just to name a few.
Cuban-born Eva Mendes would rather go naked than wear fur according to her new ad for PETA. “There are way too many amazing faux-fur options out there for people to still be wearing real fur,” says Mendes. “I want people to know that … killing a poor animal and wearing [her fur] isn’t cool. Respecting all life forms is cool.”
World renowned burlesque queen, fashion icon and model Dita Von Teese unveiled her racy new ad promoting spaying and neutering pets at PETA’s Los Angeles office today. The new ad showing off Dita’s curves urges people to brush up on their “ABCs” (Animal Birth Control) by having their pets spayed or neutered. “Nearly 4 million dogs and cats are put to death in the U.S. every year because there are not enough good homes. You can help prevent this,” she says in the ad, shown on PETA’s Web site.
Janice Dickinson’s sexy models have a reputation for turning heads – they even have their own reality show on Oxygen – but never before have they turned heads quite like this. Dozens of Dickinson models, along with Janice herself, marched along Hollywood Boulevard wearing skimpy undies and holding signs reading, “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur.” The action, in conjunction with PETA, marks Dickinson’s declaration of a fur-free policy.
Pam kicked off her birthday celebrations early in Fort Lauderdale with PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk. The former Baywatch beauty doesn’t actually hit the landmark until July 1st but started off the celebration with a party at her favorite vegan restaurant, Sublime, owned by PETA member Nanci Alexander.
