Actress Pamela Anderson‘s latest ad campaign for PETA isn’t being perceived as the animal rights activist group expected. The blonde bombshell flew to Montreal for the unveiling of the vegetarian campaign, only to be denied a permit for the event. In an eleventh hour decision, city officials rejected the request because they have determined that the PETA ad is “sexist”.
Pamela promptly issued this statement: “In a city that is known for exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned for 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 Canada would be so puritanical.”
PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews suggests that Montreal city officials are confusing “sexy with sexist.”
The ad depicts what a butcher would see when he looks at the carcass of a dead cow or chicken. The campaign reads: All Animals Have the Same Parts. Have a Heart – Go Vegetarian.
What do you think…is the ad sexist?
