PETA Thinks Selfie Monkey Has A Right To Some Royalties

On Tuesday, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of a six-year-old macaque monkey named Naruto. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, that’s because he’s gone by Selfie Monkey since 2011, when he famously snapped his own face in a picture that has been repurposed countless time.

Why Is Ryan Gosling Such A Hardcore Chicken Activist?

Regular readers of The Frisky are well aware of two indisputable facts about yours truly: I am a diehard Ryan Gosling fangirl, and I am terrified of birds. When Robyn sent me the link to a story about Ryan Gosling’s passionate open letter to the CEO of Costco, urging the company to go cage-free for their eggs,…

PETA Made Me Do It: The 7 Types Of Sexist PETA Ads That Turned Me To Meat

Remember all of those GoDaddy ads that featured NASCAR driver Danica Patrick fake-stripping? PETA had no problem with those. Those were fine. But once GoDaddy created an ad that featured a woman selling a puppy on a GoDaddy-hosted site, A LINE WAS CROSSED. Of course, PETA’s rationale for their objection was as thin as their…

Dear Sarah Palin: You Don’t Have To Be PETA To Think Standing On A Dog Is Messed Up

Last week, Sarah Palin posted a picture of her darling son Trig standing on Jill Hadassah, the family dog, for the purpose of doing dishes. This was quite a moment for the Mama Grizzly, who could not have been more proud of her son for stepping on a living creature in order to get what…

PETA Says Eating Chicken Wings While Pregnant Will Affect Your Unborn Child’s Penis Size

I appreciate what PETA does, but when they take it too far, they really take it too far. They recently sent a letter to the founder of the National Buffalo Wing Festival warning them that they should ban pregnant women from eating wings because scientific evidence suggests that the sons of pregnant women who consume…

PETA Wants Teens To “Go All The Way”

Hey. Get your head out of the gutter! PETA means “go all the way vegan” instead of just vegetarian, obviously. Obviously. Is it really that obvious, though, when PETA’s new “Vegans Go All The Way” ad features Samia Najimy-Finnerty, who is just 16 years old?

PETA Tries To Convert Us To Veganism With A Supercut Of Animals Having Sex

Vegans have a bigger sexual appetite! That’s PETA’s new ploy to get us to stop eating/wearing/using animal products. And how do they illustrate their point? Oh, with a supercut of wild animals fucking set to the tune of “Teddy Bear’s Picnic.” I certainly enjoyed PETA’s “Do It Like They Do” ad way more than the…

Evening Quickies: Ryan Gosling Saves The Cows

We knew Ryan Gosling loved his trusty mutt, but now he’s spread his love of animals to the barnyard. The Gos penned a letter on behalf of PETA (side eye) to the National Milk Producers Federation this week asking them to halt the “barbaric practice” of removing calves’ horns. Get to it, milk producers.

Anne Hathaway Apologizes For Her Valentino Oscar Snub

Anne Hathaway owed someone an apology regarding her appearance on Oscar night (and no, that “someone” isn’t all of us after we were forced to stare at what appeared to be her nipples all evening). You see, Anne was supposed to wear a couture dress by Valentino, but she flipped out and grabbed that…

PETA Hits New Low With Joanna Krupa “Fur Trim” Pubic Hair Ad

This ad from PETA is all kinds of disturbing and not just because it further promotes the idea that pubic hair is “unattractive” and a woman has to spend $$$ to trim and wax. No, PETA, this ad really looks like Joanna Krupa has the Lorax down there in her skivvies. Just ridiculous. [via Amanda Palmer]…

PETA Hates Honey Boo Boo Child

How horrible, right? How could you hate an innocent little child like Honey Boo Boo? If you don’t like her, fine, or if you think she’s trashy, whatever. I see you up there on your high horse, I get it. But hate? That’s just sad.
It’s because she has a pet chicken. See that photo u…

Courtney Stodden Shills For PETA, Makes Us Feel Weird About Animal Rights

Look, there’s no doubt I support animal rights. I’m a vegan. I don’t wear fur and only wear vintage leather. However, I feel very strange about animal rights organization PETA using Courtney Stodden as their spokeslady. I mean, it’s great that Courtney adopted her dog Bazaar from a shelter eight years ago, and “saturates” him…

PETA Promises Veganism Will Make You “A Tantric Porn Star”

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ ad campaigns are usually an 11 on the eyeroll scale, only a point behind Axe Body Spray. Their latest ad features a woman whose body is all covered up for once, but she’s wearing a neck brace because her little boyfriend from “Portlandia” “went vegan and knocked the…

Former “Real Housewife” Cindy Barshop Explains, In Detail, Just How Her New Real-Fur And Feather Vaginal Decorations Work

PETA’s outrage over Completely Bare spa owner Cindy Barshop’s “foxy bikini” and “carnivale bikini” treatments has certainly kept the former “Real Housewives of New York City” star’s phones busy. “It’s like I cured cancer,” she says of the response she’s gotten to the new procedures, which involve affixing real fur and real feathers (not both at…'s The Cut / January 20, 2012

A Look At PETA’s Seriously Sexualized Stunts

Whether or not you wear or eat meat, PETA’s overtly sexualized publicity campaigns might leave a bad taste in your mouth. In addition to billboards featuring stars like Pamela Anderson and Olivia Munn going naked for the cause, the animal rights group often holds live spectacles in public places featuring attractive young women, models, or…

Peta Puts Its Paws Up At Kim Kardashian And Janet Jackson

I’m not 100 percent crazy about PETA — a lot of their advertising and marketing employs sexist tactics in order to promote their pro-animal message. That said, their latest move — to single out Kim Kardashian and Janet Jackson for their pro-fur lifestyles — might not be a bad move. The animal rights organization awarded…

When Waxing Meets Animal Rights

Congratulations, Ministry of Waxing and PETA! Your labia-like furry clutch with the  words “Wear ‘bare skin’ not fur” is successful, at least in the sense that I have mentioned you in a blog post saying, “Oh my goodness, that is quite the advertisement.” Unfortunately, your ad doesn’t make any sense. If a woman is waxing off her…

Hot Links: PETA’s Anti-Thanksgiving Turkey Ad Is Not Very Convincing

I don’t mean to be heartless, but PETA’s Thanksgiving-focused ad is completely ineffective, at least to a person terrified of medium-to-large sized fowl. See, dogs are wonderful and turkeys are disgusting, ugly, mean creatures and even though I much prefer Thanksgiving side dishes, I am very thankful the dead bird in the center of…
