Even though Janet Jackson is inspiring people to be healthier with her NutriSystem campaign, the singer has a lot of animal rights activists shaking their heads in disapproval. The ‘Rhythm Nation’ singer has been named the 2011 ‘Grinch of the Year’ by PETA for choosing to wear animal products such as leather and fur.
The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, better known as PETA, does some good work, but it’s the organization’s more absurd stunts that often make headlines — and this one is a prime example.
Citing the suffering of turkeys during the Thanksgiving season, PETA sent a letter to the mayor of Turkey, Texas and asked him to change the town’s name to the tofu-based meat alte
As the owner of a rescue dog, I truly understand and appreciate the idea of protecting animal rights. However, I think the latest efforts from PETA make their entire organization look like a joke.
The video game Super Mario Bros. 3 was released in 1988 in Japan and 1990 in the United States, but apparently it took more than 21 years to get the attention of PETA.
Well PETA is at it again and this time they're going after the kids. They're telling kids to avoid eating turkey next week with a new slogan that says "Kids: If you wouldn't eat your dog, why eat a turkey?" PETA says they're trying to get kids to feel the pain of killing a turkey, comparing them to their household pets, according to The Huffington Post.
Montrose School District was in the news last week for adding more layoffs and planning to get rid of the bus system in order to salvage their budget. Now, PETA has made them an offer, where they would place ads in the school to stop dissection of animals and in return they would pay the district money that could help with their budget problem.
