PETA’s Controversial Ad

There have been many instances in movies, clothing and other animal related activity that have walked a fine line in “insulting” PETA. However, this time PETA may be the ones crossing that line. Or are they?

A new ad from PETA has raised many eyebrows. Jessica, the star of the spot is walking home in a neck brace and “suffers from BWVAKTBOOM, ‘Boyfriend Went Vegan and Knocked the Bottom Out of Me,’ a painful condition that occurs when boyfriends go vegan and can suddenly bring it like a tantric porn star.”

Sure, they may be promoting the fact that a clean vegan diet can raise your libido but is this promoting domestic abuse? It’s an interesting take on a serious matter. Especially a group so involved with ending abuse to animals. What do you think?



PETA Protests…Mario Bros?



As the preorders of Super Mario 3D Land come flying in this holiday season there is one major organization that will not be on the list. PETA.

PETA is protesting the Tanooki suit that Mario wears in the game. It was first introduced in 1988 in Super Mario Bros. 3.

According to PETA, “Tanooki may be just a ‘suit’ in Mario games, but in real life, tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it’s OK to wear fur.”

What do you think, is this a little extreme of a protest?
