Our Worst Nightmare: The Fur Snuggie

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 »

Stand Down PETA, Angie’s Bag Made From Horse Haircuts

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 »

Nadya Suleman Wants You To Spay Or Neuter Your Pets. But What About Her?

There is irony. And then there is Nadya Suleman putting up a PETA sign in her front yard warning passerbys to “Always Spay or Neuter” their pets. Yes, Nadya has signed on to be the new face of new PETA campaign with the tagline, “Don’t let your dog or cat become an OctoMom.” So how did this come to be? Nadya has been in serious financial trouble lately and is in danger of losing her home after her father defaulted on a $450K loan. Vivid Entertainment offered to pay for the house in full if Nadya would agree to star in an adult film for them. At the same time, PETA offered her another option—this campaign. “It would help you and your children to keep your home and also reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats,” read the pitch letter. Nadya decided to take their offer. Her lawyer explains, “No porn. Just PETA. Nadya prefers animals over men.”

Tiger Woods Threatens To Sue PETA Over Billboard, So They Mock Mark Sanford Instead

Remember earlier in the week when we showed you this billboard PETA was planning to erect (Am I 12 years old? Because that word still cracks me up.) in Florida to remind people to get their pets spayed and neutered. Tiger apparently wasn’t too happy about it—his lawyers threatened to sue the animal lovahs if they went forward with their plans. A PETA spokesperson said, “We were contacted by Tiger’s lawyers at IMG who kindly, but firmly, told us we were not authorized to use his image on the billboard.” So what will PETA do? They’re creating a new billboard featuring South Carolina Governor and tan line addict Mark Sanford. The text beneath his photo will read: “Your dog doesn’t have to go to South America to get laid.” Kind of amazing. [NY Post]

And All Dogs Drool!

Normally I feel pretty “meh” about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and their antics. However, I do agree with some of their beliefs — like the one demonstrated by a PETA protester at the Westminster Dog Show. But you know what would make for a better statement against purebreds? Sponsoring a dog show for mutts! My pup Lucca would totes enter (and win, obvi). [Gawker] Keep reading »
