Sorry, but I just don’t get how Photoshopping Pam Anderson‘s body to look like a slab of meat at the butcher’s will help ease the suffering of animals in abattoirs. I can, though, see this ending up on a frat room wall. Kudos, PETA! Keep reading »
Sorry to remind you that Miley Cyrus dated a male model and you didn’t, but Justin Gaston (right), a former paramour of young Miley, is sharing the goods with us in a nakey-time PETA campaign. The rest of the eye candy? “If I Can Dream” web-series co-stars Giglianne Braga and Ben Elliot. Thanks, PETA! Keep reading »
These high heels appear to have hamsters (gerbils?) embedded in the platform under the toe. We here at The Frisky pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of extreme shoes, from crazy stripper shoes to the highest heels ever made. But animals? In shoes? That’s gone too far. Thankfully, or disappointingly, depending on your relationship to animal rights, we do not believe these shoes exist in reality. They’re from If Shoes Could Kill, a blog that showcases some of the absolutely most freakiest shoes around, real and pretend. We’d probably rather wear these banana shoes, personally, than clomp around with the hamsters. [If Shoes Could Kill] Keep reading »
Oh, look, a PETA ad that’s not bats**t insane!
Our “Golden Girls” gal Bea Arthur speaks out from beyond the grave to wag her finger at McDonalds’ for using “factory farms” for their meat products. Thank you for being a friend to chickens, Bea! [Bitch Magazine] Keep reading »
We are officially horrified. Snuggie has decided to make a genuine fur
backwards bathrobe product line, which will be endorsed by some serious star power. Not that we are PETA-crazed or anything, but no animal should ever have to die for a Snuggie! And speaking of PETA, you know they got all up on this shiz. The group slammed the slanket makers via spokesperson Pam Anderson, who said, “It is disappointing seeing stars like Aretha Franklin and Madonna glamorize dead animals. I have the pink Snuggie and would love a faux-fur one.” Girl, you lost us at “I have the pink Snuggie.” Anyway, the animal rights activists are already prepping a counter campaign. As for the unnamed celebrities endorsing the fur Snuggie, we think Kanye and Amber are shoe-ins. [TreeHugger.com] Keep reading »
Um, PR crisis averted? If the $5000 Akris horsehair purse wasn’t the it bag of the season, it will be now. Angelina Jolie was spotted traipsing around Venice sporting hers (you can just barely see it and it’s a rather fetching shade of ecru), but lest you think she’ll wear any old luxury item on her famous arm, she did her homework first. She had her stylist phone the Swiss design house to make sure the origin of the horsehair was ethical in nature. According to WWD: “’We told her horses get haircuts just like we do,’ Akris designer Albert Kriemler said of the bag, which is made with hair from horse tails.” Uh-huh, that’s what they told her anyway. Shew! But can you imagine being so paranoid about stirring up controversy that you have to vet your purse before you leave the house? Then again, maybe she truly is concerned about those lil’ old ponies. Let’s hope it’s the latter. [WWD] Keep reading »
