Pamela Anderson's New PETA Ad Is Too Hot for Canada

Pamela Anderson's New PETA Ad Is Too Hot for Canada-photo

Sorry, Pamela Anderson; the animals might love you for your tireless dedication to their welfare, but your homeland of Canada is leaving you out in the cold.

The former Baywatch babe's latest ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has stirred up so much ire up north that Canada denied a permit for an event to promote it at the last minute, claiming the image is sexist.

In the ad, Anderson is seen in profile wearing a bikini, with butcher's chart markings for choice cuts such as "rump," "ribs," and "breast," above a caption that reads, "All Animals Have the Same Parts."

A Montreal official says of the decision to decline the permit,

"It is not so much controversial, as it goes against all principles public organizations are fighting for in the everlasting battle of equality between men and women."

Responding to the decision, a clearly irritated Anderson fired back,

"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. In some parts of the world, women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas -- is that next? I didn't think that Canada would be so puritanical."

PETA spokesperson Dan Matthews, meanwhile, chimed in,

"I think that city officials are confusing 'sexy' with 'sexist.'"

    OK, I don't know this chic apart from her name or 'Baywatch' nor I care about her work but this dispute is really irritating. What's wrong with this ad? It's supposed to show that animals and humans are equal. Why is it worse than doing naked shots to represent the purity of the nature? I don't get it. Pamela Anderson was not forced to do this campaign. She posed for the organisation because she wanted to take part in its humane animal treatment awareness program. It was her choice so I don't think any officials have the right to - not so subtly - judge her. We have seen worse or more provocative ads than this one, IMO. And what does it have to do with sexism? Check a dictionary if you don't know what that term means. Jeez.
