Pamela Anderson’s PETA ad banned in Montreal
HollywoodNews.com: Pamela Anderson has proved she’s still got a sizzling bikini body in a controversial banned new ad for PETA.
The Baywatch beauty poses in a barely there bikini with parts of her body marked as if they were pieces of meat. The ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) says: “All animals have the same parts. Have a heart. Go vegetarian.”
The Canadian-born animal rights activist, 43, had hoped to unveil the poster in Montreal but authorities in the city banned the edgy image. The ‘Montreal Film and TV Commission’ refused permission for PETA to stage the poster unveiling event in the city’s Place Jacques-Cartier.
A spokesperson for the commission said: “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.”
Anderson hit back calling the city leaders ‘puritanical’.
She 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.” PETA instead launched the campaign in a private café.
