PETA is getting rilly ril with their messaging this year. Instead of just throwing red paint on people, getting naked, or even just being all, “hey, stop wearing fur,” the animal rights group is making personal, public attacks on famous people — the group named Kim Kardashian, Janet Jackson and Cameron Crowe as their first annual celebrity grinches.
The first two were called out for their habit of wearing fur, and the third for using animals in his movies. I’d paraphrase what PETA said, but I probably wouldn’t be as mean, so here’s the excerpt from their blog:
- When Janet Jackson had her infamous “wardrobe malfunction” during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own—unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career). Ms. Jackson, you’re just plain nasty.
- Filmmaker and former visionary Cameron Crowe went retro in the wrong way for his new flick, We Bought a Zoo, which relied on the performing-animal industry—in which the “actors” are routinely neglected and even abused—instead of using state-of-the-art computer imaging. Exploiting live animals to tell a story about saving animals? At least Elizabethtown won’t go down as his worst creative flop.
- Some have speculated that Kim Kardashian‘s wedding to NBA forward Kris Humphries was fake. Too bad the socialite princess doesn’t have the same enthusiasm for faking her fur. Unlike her sweet sister Khloe, who starred in her own PETA anti-fur ad, Kim just can’t seem to divorce herself from fur and say “I do” to a kind and kompassionate wardrobe.
