Perhaps David Cross Should Take His Own Advice and Shut Up

David Cross, one of the actors on the hilarious Fox comedy Arrested Development, is the latest Hollywood type to go naked as part of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ anti-fur campaign.

In the ad, Cross appears naked accompanied by the cut line, “Wear your own fur. Let the animals keep theirs.”

Except, between this ad, the bizarre Dennis Rodman ad (those were vegan tattoos, right Dennis?), and the pictures of Lisa Franzetta going naked, frankly I’m beginning to understand why humans have been using furs to cover their bodies for millenia.

A press release announcing Cross’ ad included a passage so bizarre I still don’t know what PETA is referring to. According to PETA,

Although he drew the line at being genitally electrocuted [damn — now that I would pay to see!] like animals on fur farms are, dedicated David did try to better understand the pain of these animals by using double-sided tape to cover his naughty bits when he worked the runway for our cameras. Youch! (Sorry ladies, the discarded tape was promptly sold on eBay).

I think I’d much prefer a fur-fringed coat over tape with David Cross’ body hair stuck to it, but maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, since Cross is apparently not a vegetarian, much less a vegan, he doesn’t appear to have any problem with killing animals for any number of other purposes, so perhaps it would be best for Cross to take his own advice, and shut up, you fucking baby.


Wear your own fur. Press Release, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Undated.
