After its outrageous billboards against eating meat, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ new anti-KFC billboard featuring Pamela Anderson is a major let down,
Wow, “Boycott KFC.” I’m sure the nation’s omnivores will foreswear chicken completely with that message.
Apparently PETA’s creative juices only get flowing when they’re calling meat eaters child abusers or making videos showing women being assaulted.
It is interesting to note, though, that in a letter Anderson wrote to Yum! Brands chair David Novak last October, Anderson requested a meeting with Novak saying,
Please contact me through Dan Mathews of PETA at 757-622-7382, extension 1308, or via e-mail at [email protected]. Thank you for your time and attention to this important matter, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
So Anderson “care[s] so much about the pain and misery of these abused little animals” as she writes in her letter, but could care less about associating with a man who celebrated the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace. I guess a celebrity only has time to care about so many things, and worrying about those who celebrate serial killers just isn’t on Anderson’s radar.
