PETA’s Big Oops: Michelle Isn’t Happy About Her Surprise Ad Appearance
Ooooh … looks like somebody’s in trou-ble! Although, to be honest, it seems like PETA was asking for it when they decided to go ahead about put celeb faces on their latest ad with no one’s consent. The poster, which features the slogan “Fur-Free and Fabulous!,” photoshops together a handful of stylish stars who have spoken out against fur in the past—Oprah, Carrie Underwood, Tyra Banks, and the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
It’s unclear how the other ladies in the ad feel about this, but the White House is very upset about the surprise endorsement. PETA’s rationalization? “The fact is that Michelle Obama has issued a statement indicating that she doesn’t wear fur, and the world should know that in PETA’s eyes, that makes her pretty fabulous.”
A good cause? Perhaps. But we’re not too sure we’d want our faces associated with an ad whose copy sounds like a ladymag coverline, either. Besides, some of us around here like harem pants, but the last thing we want is to inadvertently end up their spokesmodel. [NBC Chicago]
