Let’s take a look at fourteen celebrities who have felt the wrath of PETA. You might think it’s mostly because of fur — because rich people love fur — but a lot of these feuds originated with other animal-related issues. The organization’s attacks range from gentle wrist-slapping to name-calling. More
If we want to know if Kim Kardashian is going to be a good mother, apparently the person to ask is the spokesperson for PETA. Wendy Wenger, spokesperson for the organization and apparently for motherhood in general, bashed Kim’s ability to be a good mother because she wears fur. More
What happens when the weather grows colder and the dog grows needier — and Lady Gaga finds herself craving a coat that no else owns. Something unique, something quirky, something poodle-y. More
Which sappy animal video would you rather watch, Ke$ha‘s ode to baby seals or Sarah McLachlan‘s weepy ASPCA TV spot? More
Olivia Munn poses for PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign, saying, “As a proud person of Chinese descent, it broke my heart to learn just how terribly animals suffer and die on Chinese fur farms and that there are no penalties for this abuse.” More
Elisabetta Canalis — formerly of George Clooney‘s arm and soon of Dancing with the Stars — is the latest celeb to strip down and bare all in the name of animal rights. Who else has posed naked for PeTA? Just about everyone, it seems.
Is anyone surprised? More
Celebuspawn Brooke Hogan is the latest in a long line of celebrities (using the term loosely) to get naked for ostensibly animal rights related reasons. In a complete and utter parody of itself, PeTA put on a benefit art show un-ironically titled “Women In Cages,” featuring (you guessed it) photos of naked women in cages. PeTA is nothing if not consistent.
Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar not only have 19 kids, they have a show (TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting) about it. A PETA chapter based near the Duggars’ home in Arkansas has proposed a plan to put up a billboard using a reference to the Duggars to encourage people to spay and neuter their pets. The billboard reads “Doggies Multiply Faster Than Duggars.” More
Last night I bundled up and faced the dastardly winds currently attempting to blow NYC into the Atlantic to attend PETA’s Fashion Week party at the Stella McCartney store. It was over-the-top and ridiculous, of course! The first thing I overheard was an older man saying to his young, pretty companion: “Oh my god, you would loooooove Fashion Week. Everyone is so stylish!” Which made me realize the pair had no idea they were actually at Fashion Week, they just live full-time in a beautiful little bubble filled with thigh-high shoes and men in tuxedos thrusting platters of champagne into their faces. Glamour!
Tim Gunn was there, which made our night, even though he was ushered off backstage before we had a chance to talk* (*profess our love) to him. Also milling about were Lo Bosworth and Taraji Henson who stood next to her controversial naked PETA ad. There were so many funny things, you guys, but I didn’t have a camera, so I drew some pictures that I hope capture the spirit of the event. More
PETA has posted an exclusive video on Buzzfeed of their NSFW Super Bowl spot, which means the pro-animal rights group created an ad that they knew was never going to air. What’s the point of that? Just to show the world how “controversial” you are? Anyway, the spot is an “outtakes parody” (the way The Simpsons: XXX is a parody) of the group’s 2009 Superbowl ad, Veggie Love. In it, bikini-clad women are oiled up and fellating vegetables. Just normal PETA stuff, you know. More
Today in absurd celeb causes, Lea Michelle tackles the horse-drawn carriages of New York City — you know, the maybe 15 tourist-transporting carts you see hovering around the perimeter of Central Park. Lea teamed up with PETA to draw attention to this alleged carriage cruelty, a cause Alec Baldwin apparently supports as well. Choice quote: “They’re animals, they’re not cars.” More
“Wow,” we thought when we read Bristol Palin‘s well-reasoned, thoughtful (no jk) response on Facebook this weekend. After Margaret Cho went public with news that her new best friendie Bristol Palin was forced into Dancing With The Stars by her mother, we expected an outraged rebuttal. After all, it doesn’t even really make sense: didn’t Bristol flaunt her short dresses and Sarah Palin-mocking outfits on the first episodes? More
