Pamela Anderson’s PETA ad rejected in Canada
The new advertisement is sexist!
This is the verdict of Canadian officials in banning the latest PETA ad of sex siren Pamela Anderson.
The blond Baywatch beauty is seen posing in a skimpy blue bikini, with her body parts marked with labels such as “rump”, “breast”, “leg”. In an attempt to coax the public to go vegetarian, the catch phrase is “All animals have the same parts.”
In an interview with Us Magazine, the star is quoted to have said: “In a city that is known for its exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest over the suffering of cows and chickens.”
This is not the first time when Anderson was caught under fire due to her raunchy advertisement for the animal rights group. In September 2009, the CNN Airport Network had also refused to air a video of her stripping.
Anderson had continued with her statement saying: “In some parts of the world, women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas — is that next? I didn’t think that Canada would be so puritanical.”
Canadian officials have issued a comment saying: “It is not so much controversial, as it goes against all principles public organisations are fighting for in the everlasting battle of equality between men and women.”
