Activists Hit Anna Wintour With Tofu Pie

Animal rights activists hit Vogue editor Anna Wintour with a tofu cream pie after she left a fashion show in Paris, France.

This is the second time this year that activists have hit Wintour with a pie, also hitting Wintour before a Chanel show in Paris.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals was quick to condemn Wintour, with PETA’s Yvonne Taylor saying,

Wintour is fur-bearing animals’ worst enemy because her magazine continues to feature dozens of pages of pro-fur editorials and advertising every year. She takes big glossy advertisements for fur and she refuses to run any anti-fur ads, even paid ones, so she’s a big fur supporter.

Hmmm…I guess then it would be okay to throw things at Ingrid Newkirk because PETA does not accept pro-fur advertisements in any of its publications.

PETA Really Winning Public Support with Its Campaign Against Vogue Editor

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has recently taken to targeting Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour with some bizarre tactics. PETA is angry at Wintour for her promotion of fur in Vogue — Wintour recently received a lifetime achievement award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

According to a New York Newsday report, in early June five PETA protesters wearing fur courts drenched themselves in fake blood and crawled up the sidewalk toward the Conde Nast building in New York. After smearing the fake blood over the building, the activists then wedged themselves into a revolving door at lunchtime.

Now that’s the way to send the message that the animal rights movement is just a bunch of nutty extremists.

PETA has also been trying to place a billboard featuring an unflattering picture of Wintour with the copy, “Fur is worn by beautiful animals and ugly people.” I suppose the feminists angered at the “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” will have a field day with that image.

PETA is apparently especially angry that while it promotes fur fashion, Vogue apparently will not even look at anti-fur ads submitted by the animal rights group.
