Janet Jackson has landed on PETA's "naughty" list this holiday, and Kim Kardashian isn't far behind.
The animal rights organization has named Jackson "Grinch of the Year" for launching a collection with fur company Blackglama, according to GossipCop.
"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)," the organization says in a press release.
PETA doesn't mince words with Kim Kardashian, either.
"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," the org says. "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."
They don't stop there, however. PETA further questions Kim's sartorial choices with billboards that call her out for wearing fur. The images depict Kim's face next to a photo of foxes and a headline that reads, "Kim: These babies miss their mother. Is she on your back?"
Lisa Lange, PETA's senior vice president, tells CNN in a statement regarding the billboards, "Kim is clearly oblivious to the horrific suffering of animals for fur, but it will be tough for her to ignore this billboard. By putting her cruel and out-of-touch fashion choices on display, we hope that Kim will be compelled to make a change, and shoppers will be motivated to make more compassionate purchases."
I saw a lot of website but I conceive this one holds something special in it. "Acting is not being emotional, but being able to express emotion." by Kate Reid.
I understand the cause fully and support but the B.S. of it is that they are being inhuman to other human beings who choose to make choices that may have nothing to do with them at all. I just don't like how they demean people, I mean really PETA GRINCH OF THE YEAR? It's not coool.
Time to buy some Janet Jackson merch... Not a fan of her music, but PETA needs to DIAF.
Janet has a white person's nose and hair. How come she doesn't want to look black?
thats a dawg. She is black but you know she, like most of the Jackson kids and most ppl, have insecurities and sometimes just gotta do what they do to make themseleves feel good and she does reach out to all races and walks of life and me being black finds this comment offensive even if it is an opinion.
PETA is one of the most vile npos on earth (almsot as bad ad christianity). They kill far more then they save, and they cause much of the 3rd world to starve by convincing people that gmo crops are bad. Not to mention that the fur that goes into cloths is not hunted, it is farmed, meaning if we didnt use the animals THEY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN BORN. And the leader of peta is a type 1 diabetic, meaning she uses insulin from pigs. anmals die so she can live. PETA like all zelots are hypocrites.
Three cheers for peta – compassion and decency is not limited only to human idiots who wrap themselves in skins.
The treatment of animals is a reflection of your treatment of humans.
No, it's not. That statement is pure intellectual dishonesty.
HAHAHA! PETA is nothing but a bunch of fat hippie chicks who can't get a man so they spend their time protesting everything.
People are animals. Some commenting here have apparently never taken a science class.
peta does euthanize, it's true...here's their explanation why they do so: http://www.peta.org/b/thepetafiles/archive/2009/03/30/why-we-euthanize.aspx
I'll have a steak in celebration.
I'm having a porterhouse steak for dinner tonight.
Vegetarian = Old North American Native name meaning......... Bad Hunter.
PETA is just mad because they were brainwashed away from being able to enjoy meat, just like the Muslims with beef. However, in regards to the food chain comments, we are top because of our THINGS that we create, not because nature intended us that way. Climb in a cage with a lion or a bear without any weapons but your hands and see who is really on top of the natural food chain.
There is a place for all GODs creatures people, for me it's right next to the potatoes and gravy
PETA has a Grinch? My, my! Look at the kettle callin' the pot black!
When is PETA going to learn that the "mean girls" approach to advocacy wins them ZERO fans, in fact, it's the opposite. I love animals, I can't stand PETA. They don't give a damn about animals, only hype.
Who care's what PETA says? They're an irrelevant organization!
It is difficult for me to think of anything more meaningless than being on PETA's grinch list. The only thing this story motivates me to do is go kick a rabbit.
I hunt and trap coyotes, fox, bobcat, and any other critter that has fur and i do it legally! This year is the first year in years that fur prices are up! PETA needs to start PETI: People for the ethical treatment of insects or something and stop wasting their time
All this talk about animals. Looks like it's lunchtime. Time to get me a big bucket of KFC...
PETA like the Rainbow Coalition, ALCU, Greenpeace etc are extortionists. They go to those with money and give them bad press until they get a "donation". Even worse the government funds these organizations, then turn around and sue it. It's the old "protection money" racketeering scheme. They should not be receiving taxpayer money.
PETA seems a bit wacky to me, but wearing fur is pointless. Leather is a different story, we eat beef and use the hide to make shoes ect. SInce when was the last time you ate fox or rabbit? The sole purpose of killing these animals is for fasion, that is pretty pathetic if you ask me. I'm even an avid hunter of pheasant and deer, eat the animals, make knive handels with the deer antlers ect. I think it is acceptable to publicly redicule yuppies you see wearing fur, in Telluride you might even get paint thrown on you.
wild rabbit is excellent.i just eat the meat,and throw the guts and fur to the coyotes and foxes.
I eat rabbit quite regularly. I don't think fox is particularly good eating, but I'd try it if someone offered.
PETA should take a hike. Nobody cares!!!
Wonder why PETA likes to throw fake blood on skinny ladies wearing fur, but leaves fat bikers wearing leather alone?
URBAN LEGEND. PETA has never thrown paint on anyone.
Leather comes from cows, people eat cows and use they materials that come from this animal in many ways. Fur coats are made from foxes and other animals we do not eat, they are raised for the sole purpose to be worn. I respect using an animal for food not for fasion.
Uh – PETA members in Michigan have most certainly assaulted people wearing furs by throwing paint on them. They have also organized phone assaults on people supporting animal research, including death threats delivered by telephone. PETA is the Sinn Fein to the Animal Liberation Front's IRA, funding and advocating terrorism. They should be rounded up and shipped off to Gitmo for waterboarding.
@SixDegrees – Okay, where is your proof of these alleged "paint throwing" episodes? Sorry, it never happened.
PETA=People Eating Tasty Animals
This from a group that promotes half naked blond bimbos standing around on street corners with signs trying to garner attention to their cause. Yes, they have respect for animals, but not so much respect for the human female species.
I have no problem with animal furs being worn as long as the animals are raised/captured and killed humanely. I've seen video of a mink being bashed against rocks multiple times until it died (because it's cheaper than other methods). I've seen video of a fox being skinned alive (because it supposedly keeps the hide supple). Both were done in the prisuit of fur clothing. I don't know what percentage of the fur industry aquires its raw material from suppliers that use similar practices... hopefully these methods are rare...
I see no reason to raise an animal for the sole purpose of killing it for fasion. That is pathetic. Leather does not count, if you can think of the numerous ways we use the cow, almost all parts of it's body go to use.
Perhaps PETA would gain more respect if they logistically planned their attacks better (i.e. not on people). No one gives a rat's patooty if some celeb is wearing fur or isn't. I mean seriously. Stop being a bunch of crazy hippy tree huggers, and start applying your cause towards saving the animals that are being maliciously killed for fashion, rather than attacking human beings!
@Anonymous – unfortunately, many people DO care what celebrities are wearing. Why do you think designers give their clothes and accessories to celebrities for free? It's because they'll wear it in public, get photographed, and consumers will see the products and be compelled to buy. It's all about money. And Kim Kardashian is unfortunately on the cover of almost every magazine, and she's the most searched name on Google. There are many young, impressionable people who unfortunately look up to Kim Kardashian, and if they see her wearing fur, they'll think it's okay. But it's not.
PETA can be a bit crazy but if they hate Kim Kardashian then I'm a fan.
Hey PETA! What about little babies and children who are tortured and killed? Why aren't you advocating for them?
Well then, Veronica, they would be called People for the Ethical Treatment of Babies and Children. Do you go around asking every cancer non-profit why they don't advocate for patients with diabetes? PETA advocates for compassion for all living beings. By making the world a more peaceful place for animals, the world is a much more peaceful and healthy place for humans as well.
First off, it is a bu**S&^% organization. Beside spending money on billboards the main thing that there donated funds go to is the mortage or lease of that phenominal water front building. Huge Corp American companies should be so lucky to work in a place like that; I guess non-profit does pay bett (rhetorical freaks). Love the stat the formermilitarysgt had with the PETA killing of animals; why thank you PETA for taking the onus and killing all these animals yourself (I guess that makes you god too). Kind of Napolionic if you ask me. Scenario, the world from it's onset has matriculated over the last millions of years with no food chin, clothes, technology or science studies what is is like now???? Answer; animals are suprememe beings and we are on the bottom of the food chain case closed. The animals would've over run the earth to the point that they would've ended up killing themselves off to the point of exstinction. PETA is just about as important to Americans as Occupy Movements are to the Govt. Have a great day people
PETA = People Eating Tasty Animals
@Lee – if you had truly digested any of the words in my post, you would understand that I clearly stated we are not large commercial manufacturers, and that my point was that it *is* possible to do things in a non-abusive manner. And you are wrong – some of those clothes & purses & coats ARE from the same animals we eat (elk, croc, deer, rabbit, snake, etc). But, clearly, you are just another brain-washed PETA devotee who interprets someone's comments as an affront to your sanctimonious "vision."
I also wonder why PETA hasn't gone after the kosher foods industry. Ever seen footage of kosher slaughterhouses? I'd prefer a bullet to the brain to bleeding to death, as is the kosher method.
My point is – if PETA didn't have such tunnel vision about one particular topic and such over-the-top methodology, their reputation may improve and perhaps more people would take them seriously. I agree that animal cruelty is wrong. I agree that skinning an animal alive is wrong. I think the people who engage in such behavior are disgusting and poor excuses for human beings. I don't agree that every single fur and leather manufacturer is guilty of these tactics. I believe that PETA and its faithful followers should go after those individual companies of whom they have proof of such offenses. That would be far more effective than trying to shame people who have no shame – and in angering their legions of devotees who will only remember that PETA tried to smear their idol. Thus, further burying what little "good" is left in PETA's messages.
@Katie2000 – You must understand that the skins from snakes, cows, rabbits, etc. that are used in the commercial fur industry (like when people buy fur, leather, or crocodile purses from Macy's or other department stores and brands) - THOSE animals are NOT the ones people eat for meat. Snakes often have hoses shoved down their throats so skinning them alive is much easier. You think the money-hungry business people who raise the snakes for their skin so they can sell to American designers care about the "meat" of the snake? Of course not. There's no money in that.
And just so you know, PETA does target the Kosher industry. Just watch the movie "Earthlings" and you'll see undercover footage from Kosher slaughterhouses which are just as horrifying as any other factory farm.
Here's my question for PETA: What's better for the world? Using animal hide/fur (a natural product) – or having to 'create' products to protect us from the elements the way leather would? 'Cuz cotton shoes ain't gonna protect my feet from the snow & ice of a MN winter. And "pleather" or "naugahide" sure as heck has to be worse for the environment to make than real leather ... My husband is a hunter (ooo, a whole new debate!) and takes the hide of his deer to a local tannery who uses the "old" methods (sans chemicals). We have mittens, slippers, hats, etc, made out of the hide. We also donate to "Hides for Habitat." While we are not in the large business of fur/leather manufacturing, there are still some respectable, responsible citizens out there who are doing it "the right way." I find it interesting that so many of these activist organizations want to go back in time to the days before modern conveniences ... I wonder what they would eat and what they would wear. History shows us animal hides used as clothing since the dawn of man. And animals used as food since the dawn of man. Ask a Native American what their ancestors teepees were made out of. It wasn't nylon/vinyl/plastic, folks. Their clothing was not made out of cotton/silk/rayon/etc. It was LEATHER. Where does leather come from? The bottom line is this: if not for animals helping us out along the way – we wouldn't still exist. We'd have long since perished from exposure to the elements, lack of protein and iron, etc.
We need to get back to the less wasteful ways of using the animal. Using ALL of the animal, whenever possible, for food and clothing.
@Katie2000 - Your situation has little or nothing to do with the fur INDUSTRY that PETA is targeting, and that Janet Jackson is supporting. What your husband does with his "kill" (while I still am against that) is nothing compared to the horrific and large-scale fur industry, particularly what is happening in China. And just so you and everyone else knows–the fur and leather that stores sell as purses and coats are NOT from the same animals as the meat that people buy in the supermarket (two separate groups of animals are tortured and killed for each). So your idea of using "the whole animals" is not at all being followed in the commercial world.
Please see this to learn more: http://features.peta.org/ChineseFurFarms/
Right on, PETA! We do not need to kill animals for their fur. It is causing unjustifiable cruelty to satisfy human vanity. Cavemen needed it, we don't. Synthetics are warmer, lighter, cheaper and better looking. Unless she is a runway model, a fur coat makes a woman look FAT. They look ridiculous. In recent years, it is usually the under educated and middle class that wear fur. Does it give them a false sense of accomplishment? Killing animals for their fur is simply gross on all levels.
You can't expect any more from these 2 idiots. Don't waste your time PETA.
Considering that there are so many other clothing options outside of fur and leather, and so many delicious meat-free meals that are actually better for us and the planet (not to mention taste better), it is completely ridiculous and barbaric to continue exploiting animals. We ARE more advanced then other animals, of course, but this should mean that we know better than participating in cruelty, like factory farming. Why put one of God's creatures through unnecessary suffering?
On the other hand, PETA needs to learn to educate, not condemn. How about winning people over by showing them how wonderful & unique all animals can be (not just dogs/cats), increasing consciousness and food choice, and sharing some delicious vegan holiday recipes? (And I don't mean Tofurky) They are only alienating people from their cause.
“Why put one of God's creatures through unnecessary suffering”
Your bible says the animals were put here for our exploitation
Where does it say that? Have you ever read Genesis 1:29?
PETA educates the world about horrific and cruel industries like fur. PETA has to have a loud voice in order to compete with people like Kim Kardashian and Janet Jackson who already get attention from the media... and when they wear fur and even PROMOTE fur brands, they are influencing a great many people to buy into a cruel and unnecessary industry. No one needs to wear fur. Shame on Janet. Thank you, PETA!
Who cares what PETA thinks? They're nothing but eco-bullies.
PETA is a lobbist group with the sole mission of amass more money. Most people who support it are misguided into thinking this group actually does any good for animal. I have no tolerance for PETA, but I hold the highest disdain for the HSUS (Humane Society of the United States). Their stats for euthanization are even higher than PETA's while they air those ad showing sick and abused animals tugging at the publics' heartstrings. They use a moniker (humane society) that's included in a majority of real facilities in a county near you to create confusion about their real intent. Beware, both of these groups are "people-hating, fleas deserve the same rights as humans, and release all the animals so they can live happy and free while we beg for more money, money, money." Feh!
Peta--the idiots of the decade!
Years ago I visited New York City at Thanksgiving right in the middle of a PETA protest against the furriers on 5th ave. After I witnessed PETA members walking around and over some of the homeless people sitting in doorways or on the sidewalk, I lost all respect for a group of nutjobs who could make a career out of caring more for animal fur than people. These are sick people who don't deserve our attention.
I wonder if there is group called PETCE, Peoplefor the Ethical Treatment of Children and Eldely.Shame people don't spend money on big bill boards on defenless humans.
Did you know that all the food that goes towards factory farmed animals could feed the entire population of the world many times over? If the world went vegan, no one would be hungry. This is a fact from USDA stats.
Veganism is impractical and most suffer from malnutrition. Not because the concept itself is unhealthy but getting the nutrients you need requires far more food homework and copious amounts of unpopular foods to make up for deficiencies of omega-3s, calcium and so on. It is the solar panels of diets. Great concept and it can be done but it is inefficient at best.
The American Dietetic Association would disagree with you. There are many people (predominately athletes) who go vegan for health reasons alone. Dr. Doug Graham and Brendan Brazier, for example, are vegan athletes who have written books on this.
If someone used words that harsh to refer to an animal, PETA would be all over it.
Aren't these the same people who went after the Prez for swatting at and killing a pesky fly. Goes to show they have nothing better to do.
Anyone who is named PETA "Grinch of the Year" is my hero!
Someone should let QVC customers know that Dennis Basso, who sells faux fur there, has bloody hands
in his other retail business, selling real fur to mindless, egotistical, selfish, inhumane customers.
I've complained to QVC, but nothing matters, because it's all about money, isn't it?
Thanks, PETA, for pointing out the celebs that wear fur. I will boycott them and all their sponsors. It's so simple to wear something else – they show their true, cold-hearted colors.
It's hilarious seeing all the tough guys saying "this is where we are in the hiearchy of the life chain", "animals are here for our use" etc. 2 quick things: 1) the only reason you are not on their list of foods, is because you live in some comfortable apartment and aren't living in their world. Without a gun, YOU are at the bottom of the food list 2) If what you say is true, and this is all just nature taking its course, then you are likely at the bottom of MY list. We should open season on humans.
Many animals use tools. A gun is a tool. So yes this is nature taking it course. Try eating something more than grass, seems your brain needs the protein.
Is that the new term for ghetto fabulous?
Blackglama has nothing to do with 'ghetto'. Or do you just unconsciously equate the word black with ghetto?
Everytime I see anything about something PETA is doing, I just want to go out and have a steak dinner while wearing all of the fur and leather that I can find...and I don't particularly like any of those things.
There are ways to go about things. The right way and the wrong way. PETA goes about their cause the wrong way. I suppose treating animals ethically is the right thing to do, but not at the expense of humanity. These people would shoot a person before they would shoot an animal. Because of that, I would shoot any member of PETA before I would shoot an animal. I win.
You would have a VERY hard time finding any animal rights advocate who is not also a human rights advocate.
I would really like to see PETA's financial profile examined. Since no sane and rational people in the population think that their message is sane or rational, then they've gotta be profiting in some manner that has allowed them to stay in business for so long. Same category as that bat schit crazy "church" protesting at military funerals. Well, at least we know who to eat first after the apocolypse, when it's survival of the fittest.
Who cares about what PETA says. They are after their own agenda just like everyone else. They're stupid if they think they're going to get their message across by bashing celebrities. I'm not into animal cruelty just like the next person and I wear leather but think it's weird to still wear fur in this day and age. Go figure. However, it's not illegal to wear fur and it's not my cross to bear if anyone else does. When people start caring more and speaking out more about how we treat each other, I will then care more about about "animal rights".
PETA [PEOPLE EATING TASTY ANIMALS]
I'm not a fan of Janet Jackson (it was not a wardrobe malfuction, it was planned) or Kim Kardashian (Barbara Walters was right for once, KK has NO talent), but PETA is seriously harming the animal protection movement, and needs to just shut up and go away.
Today, many animal protectors are being painted with the same brush as the loonies in PETA, and it's hurting our efforts to save animals.
Yes, I eat steak (lots of it), and wear leather shoes. I also am firmly opposed to Animal Shelters that kill the animals they house, and I think the people who kill whales, dolphins and seals should be strung up.
...and the first member of PETA that tries throwing blood on me, is going to wind up wearing the bucket they used in a very uncomfortable portion of their anatomy.
John, looks like you're suffering from a bit of G.O.D. complex...people who get their fill or slice of the pie and want to dictate who gets to eat how much of the rest. Have you bought usable property and adopted any of those animals from the shelters so that they don't have to make those tough economic decisions? Why are whales, dolphins, and seals awarded such high places in your food chain as opposed to other animals killed for human consumption? We have agencies that are supposed to make sure that we are not senselessly killing animals to extinction. We have agencies that are supposed to be about the business of making sure that these harvesting operations are "humane" and towards a non-wasteful end; that's the only valid argument from PETA in my opinion. Every time people hear about PETA harassing some celebrity for their own benefits of free advertisement, or terrorizing kids buying Happy Meals at McDonalds, they appear more and more detached from reality.
i once ate a peta girl,she tasted like chiken,smelled like fish.
People Eating Tasty Animals...........uuuummmmm foooood....
Who gives a crap what PETA thinks?
You know, those vegetables have rights too! how dare these hypocritical "vegetarian" PETA members think they are better than the vegetables they consume! that poor tomato.. it never did anything to anyone. it just grew, minding its own business, and some berkinstock-wearing hairy-legged self-important trust fund ivy league rich girl came along and decided to RIP IT OFF THE VINE and TEAR ITS FLESH APART WITH HER MOUTH! its horrible!
these PETA vegetarians are so hypocritical. YOU ARE NOT BETTER THAN THE VEGETABLES YOU EAT! so, please stop eating them. oh, and water is a precious resource, and you all like to conserve stuff, so stop drinking that, too. =D
ROFL at those thinking PETA or members of PETA have any relevance in the world.
I am a member of PETA – People Eating Tasty Animals
Quick after thought: I should also recognize that other organizations with bad animal practices have done a good job of making PETA seem like a group of radicals. My gripe is that PETA has played into their hands perfectly.
I appreciate their cause, but PETA constantly undermines their message by their use of school yard taunts and hatred. Think strategically, PETA. There is an endless array of change strategies out there beyond name calling and bombastic sounding accusations.
Ask PeTA about the number of cats they've euthanized recently and tossed into other people's dumpsters. Hypocrites.
How does peta decide which animals should live or die? They clearly show preference to certain cute and cuddly types. I've never seen them protest the killing of rats or mice. They are destroyed by the thousands by exterminators and home owners. There are whole departments in stores dedicated to the sale of lethal traps and poisons. What if there were the same traps and poisons for deer or squirrels. Hypocritical nazi mentality.
I want to become a vegetarian (once I can afford the appropriate regiment of supplements), my last two pets (the only two since moving out of my childhood home) were adopted from shelters, I would never wear fur (faux or real, it's just ugly), and I do my part to educate people about the counter-productivity of breeders and the benefits of spaying or neutering their animals. I even go a step further, inadvertently, in acknowledging that all we perceive to be matter is simply energy condensed to a slow vibration and thus everything is one and one is everything.
But PETA people drive me up a wall. I'm not going to feed my cat food that's more expensive than mine and brush his teeth every night and all that sort of thing. They're no better than chicks who insist on spelling it "womyn" while acting like their menstrual cycle is a miracle instead of a natural process. Same thing I say to environmentalists – if you really want to help, shuffle off this mortal coil. Humans are parasites with shoes. Get used to it or shut up.
You appear looney enough as it is...embracing PeTA would probably drive you over the edge.
PETA is heading down the same silly road to being little more than a loud joke that Scientology started taking a few years ago when people lost their fear of them. This is what happens to narcissic activists who missed the boat on climatology.
These PETA folks are the same kind of people that support the abortion of babies by the droves but are worried about whether Fido has a home.
As for those that argue euthanizing is more humane than some other means of dealing with unwanted pets... when is the last time you were euthanized? Did it feel more humane?
I love animals but let's get some perspective! If man had not hunted and did not eat animals he would not be here today. All of you m%%$#@ don't seem to understand that you would not be here if it hadn't been for the survival instincts of your ancestors.
People Eating Tasty Animals – PETA
... and another thing... I'm pretty sure that these vegan, animal rights people would eat meat if they were starving and dying, lost in the woods somewhere in the middle of winter. I seriously doubt that tree bark would do it for them. Man is a born omnivore. These people go against the true nature of mankind. I'm not saying we should abuse animals, but to terrorize people and publicly humiliate them for making their own choices is really obnoxious. I should also mention that I think hunting is beautiful, and that it is far better for the planet than factory farms, but of course, PETA doesn't want anyone to wear leather, or eat meat. THIS IS INSANITY.
Humans are actually completely herbivorous animals and possess no carnivorous instincts. It is impossible for a true omnivore to get clogged arteries because they are able to process animal fat and protein well.
I’ve been reading your posts. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt as to just being misinformed. This however is an outright lie.
Check out the China Study, the largest nutritional study every done in history, the research of Dr. John McDougall, or just look at the number of deaths from heart disease in America. Could you hunt down and kill an animal in the wild with no tools, like all true omnivores, eat it raw – blood, bones, brains, fur, and all?
All of these PETA vegan nutballs don't even realize that the vegan food they eat is harvested by machines that kill small animals in the field. I think PETA needs to STFU.
I couldn't agree more with what they are saying.
PETA "Humane" shelters are the largest slaughterer of pets in the USA. When they stop being a PITA hypocritical organization then MAYBE more people will listen to what they have to say.
Meat is good. Fur kept humans warm since the beginning of time. PETA members have good skin for my lampshades. All creatures should get along right? Yeah, as soon as lions stop eating deer, and cats and dogs make peace. You kids need to get a real job, and start worrying about humans. By the way, thanks for the naked celebrity ads. I hate you.
I would love to spit in the faces of thes two women! spit spit spit spit and more spit! they dont deserve to live. they have so value of life.
I'd love to spit on them too... but not with saliva. heheh
Spit, spit, spit... guess you really need to spit! You got a saliva issue? Because they wear fur they don't deserve to live?
Are you all there or what? I don't wear fur, however if I really needed to because I had nothing else to wear and no means to keep warm I'd slaughter as many furry little animals as necessary to sustain myself.
Guess it's a good thing that we live in the times that we do because in earlier times you'd have went the way of the Dodo bird.
PETA has to be the worst waste of resources on the planet. Of all of the things that their time, money, and effort could be used on. How many available work hours could be donated to something that actually accomplishes something?
PETA, we are not going to stop eating meat, PERIOD. STOP IT ALREADY.
This shows to the rest of the world, mostly poor and hungry WISHING that they had some meat AND vegetables, how callous we are in the west.
all you people btch about peta but support animal cruelity. which one's the lesser of two evils?
We don't have to agree with the very last demand of peta, but its common sense we don't need to torture animals for food and clothing.
some of you people are so selfish and intentionally laughable.
were gonna keep eating meat but can we agree needless animal cuelity is nonsense.
@ big and blissful
I believe we can also agree that obesity is a gross waste of resources and could be considered cruel to the large number of chickens fried in their name.
Hunting for survival is one thing (some third-world cultures have no other means for survival). Hunting for sport and fashion is quite another. Humanity boasts its dominance in the "food chain", yet we have evolved beyond hunting, or we should have. Clothing no longer needs to be made from the hides and furs of animals, and animals no longer need to be hunted for food sources. The practice endures for one reason and one reason alone; Human beings are the ONLY animals on this planet who kill for pleasure. And because killing other humans is...frowned upon...humanity turns to those beings "lower on the food chain". Well, let me take this opportunity to remind everyone who supports needless animal slaughter that the ONLY thing seperating YOU from the animals you kill is the gun in your hand. Take that away, and let's see just how high up on the food chain you continue to be.
You can deride PETA all you want to; but YOU are in the wrong. If you continue to kill all the animals in range of your little gun, one day there will be no more animals. Then what will you eat? Each other?
I agree with you in most of your post. But PETA has been known to fake some shock vids by harming the animals themselves and lying to pet owners who thought by turning their pets over to PETA would ensure they go to good homes when actuality they adopt less than 10% of all pets surrendered.
I guess you've never seen cats "play" with mice then. Or dogs mutilate baby bunnies. Or lions kills baby cheetahs and other baby lions. Humans are not the only creatures to kill for pleasure.
We were hunting those same animals long before the invention of the gun.
People that try to justify these cruel acts, are just ignorant. Add Janet and Kim to that list, but I think they made the ignorant list–many years ago. Google "Detroit Dog Rescue" and make a small tax deductable donation to close out 2011. -Artie
That's what most of you people are. the suppose this. How can anyone watch these videos and say it ok.? Its not for food. u all should die the same way. pigs thats what you people are. pigs! humans are the worse things on this planet
PETA cares more about the life of a chicken than the life of a child dying of cancer, yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Save the chickens!!! God forbid!!! Think about all of the children they could help with the money they raise for the chickens at KFC.
Your self-hatred is amusing. Go kill a plant and eat that.
Gosh... people are so horrible! Well, maybe 2012 is the year all of the humans will perish (that includes you) and then the animals can rule the world wouldn't that be great!
PETA is the Grnch of the millenium!!! One can only hope that their 2012 resolution is for each PETA member to kiss a grizzly bear
PETA is a wanna-be organization.
Congratulations, Janet, for being named Grinch of the Year. Consider it an HONOR!
The real PETA, People for Eating Tasty Animals, is calling, and they want their name back! As one friend once said to me, salad isn't food, salad is what food EATS!
Until PETA members give up their iPads, iPhones, iPods and all other things Apple, they haven't got a leg to stand on (not even a hind leg). Why? Because Apple had a problem that even Steve Jobs couldn't solve. Children (of China) in Apple's manufacturing factories are treated worse than some of the animals PETA rails on about, all so that Americans can continue their love of technology.
But I digress . . .
kim k has enough skin on her fat a ss to make a coat for any1 ... add some of her p ussy fur and there you go! might be smelly fur but its still fur
If you want a REAL animal lover, stick with Betty White – PETA and it's overblown windbag Bob Barker are just a couple of windbags with LOTS of hot air!
Sorry, but I'd love to have a mink coat.
While I do not support PETA, and believe in eating meat and believe hunting is a good thing and all that good stuff, I do not believe in killing animals just to take their fur.
Now, if you are willing to eat whatever we pull the skin off of then I agree... enjoy the Mink coat! However, if you wouldn't consider the animal you want to pull the skin off of food then you have no business killing it.
These PETA idiots should spend as much time looking after needy humans as opposed to worrying about mice and lab rats.
CEDA = Cowards Eating Defenseless Animals
I LOVE HUNTING Accidents!
peta is a disgusting organization! they kill thousands of animals a year and claim to be for animal rights, get the F out of here!
I belong to PETA, it's the best organization someone can belong to....People for Eating Tasty Animals
Seriously?! Apparently an original thought has not crossed your mind. What a waste.
I belong to the original peta group....
People Eating Tasty Animals.
Ah yes, the REAL P.E.T.A. I've been a member my entire life; enjoying tasty animals wherever I go. I will, however, state that I am not a strict carnivore; I am a part-time vegetarian ... most of the "time" I put vegetables on a "part" of my plate.
Yes people have been wearing animal fur since the dawn of man, however, back in the day they would go out and hunt an animal and eat it and use the fur. Now all that happens is these animals are mass produced and then they have their skin ripped off of them WHILE THEY ARE STILL ALIVE and their bodies are thrown away like garbage. This is not in the interest of keeping a human alive who could not survive otherwise, but in the interest of looking "good" as one walks from the heated car to their heated home.
Is there a video of this being done... that would be COOL!!
I love PETA. Let me spell this out for those of you (most of you) who are too self-absorbed and emotional to understand. PETA fights for animals by using media. That's pretty smart - every major interest out there either uses media to reach us, or wishes they were using it. This anti-fur campaign with Janet and Kim K. is the best way to get their message across since these celebrities are so visible. It's a great message, since fur production requires cruelty. Who wants to support cruelty? Thank you PETA for fighting against cruelty. Yes PETA euthanizes many animals. If you actually do research on why they do, you will find that their reasons are arguably good ones.
How about when PETA ransacked a mink farm in northern Michigan several years ago resulting in the deaths of numerous mink that where killed on a nearby highway? They clearly cause more harm than good. PETA is nothing more than a domestic terrorist group
If you spray paint my suede jacket, I'm gonna euthanize YOU!
Kim K. knows because her sister did something for PETA and Kim is still wearing fur. Doesn't say much for her. I sure Janet Jackson heard and saw it as well. I saw not even a minute of a video and I lost it. I couldn't believe how anyone can look at at animal and do that to the poor thing. It's just heartless and people like that shouldn't be allow to live.
Nice to see some compassion and intelligence posted here! I have seen the videos and no living thing should suffer this fate. Bless you for getting it!
I agree, that's actually my biggest problem with Kim, is that she is aware of what goes on. When asked if she will give up fur after seeing what goes on in the fur industries she said quote "I'm trying, one day at a time" like it's an addiction?!?!
Are u suggesting that these people should be killed? Are u suggesting that their lives are less important than some other form of life? In that sense, where do you stand on abortion?... I'd be interested to know. Because you could be one be one step away from bombing an abortion clinic?
Regardless of how you feel about PETA, the fur farming industry is a disturbing and unnecessary thing. I've researched it and seen enough video footage (not just PETAs but the HSUS, AWS, AFS, etc.). I can understand if someone has never seen the footage and buys/wears fur. However, if someone can bare watching just the first few minutes of any of the undercover videos and still buy/wear fur then, well, that says a lot about a person. Before you side with the fur industry, do your research.
You summed it up perfectly. Ironically, I've been trying to make a similar point and twice now my comments have not registered. Makes one wonder if there is a preference for what gets posted. Anyway, glad yours got through!
Are morons!!!!!! it's how they are killing the animals!! what heartless person would skin a animal alive and not feel anything.
I would like to skin some humans alive. lol. i rather live with animals than the pigs we have for humans any day.
how can you people watch human society and say it's okay to do these things to animals. every time i see it on tv it makes me sick
PETA does raise awareness if nothing else. of cruelty to animals. It is a shame some animals had to die to cover Kim's big bus booty and Janet's plastic veneer. Man: the source of Earths' death and all live on it. Too bad we can't neuter people to keep the world from exploding with our own.
o no I just made millions selling fur based clothing and PETA has put me on their naughty list o boo hoo what will i do !!!!!
PETA – People Eating Tasty Animals
Of you morons are not understanding is that they are killing animals just for fashions. This has nothing to do with the stone age, or food, etc. They are doing it for fashion. Yes, we eat meat. there is nothing wrong with that but when these poor animals are killed just so people can wear (this day and age we have enough to keep us warm) for show, then that's just not right. If y'all can live w yourself knowing this and it doesn't disguse you then you are really heartless.
If they are the protectors of our animals why did they name themselves PETA (people eating tasty animals)?
Hey Cassie, a bit if career advise. Stay on point! A "lady lawyer"??? Maybe a lady layer?? Jeez woman, get a client! PETA does what it does. Right or wrong, they have goals which are at least beyond "Hey, I'm a lady lawyer who needs a man"
Who cares about PETA anyway? Put me on your naughty list too; I'm not going to lose sleep over it. I'll be too busy dreaming of tasty meat!
It's not too late for most of you to go back and get an education. You clearly need one...
wow f~ck peta..people euthanising tasty animals...i swear that most of those idiots dont live in the real world...without furs and pelts your stupid descendants would have never made it out of the stone age
My best frie'nd ,she just has announced her wedding with a RICH young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC ! They met via BillionaireFriends.COMit's the largest and best club for wealthy people and their admirers to chat online. …you don’t have to be rich there ,but you may meet one .
PETA and all those other tree hugging groups should all hang out in the nearest weapons proving grounds. They could throw their bodies over innocent animals or wrap themselves around defenseless trees.
Oh and the government could make a feature film out of it – I am sure it would help lower the national debt for a few 100 million and maybe even win a few awards.
GO PETA, Janet Jackson should know better. Her brother Michael would have never approved of her wearing fur.
Her brother was a cute black boy who turned into a terrifying white woman, and owned a lot of captive exotic animals.
These two superficial b!tches would bath in gold if they can. Why are people suprised that the likes of these two wear fur.. regardless of how the animals are tortured and killed just so they can cover their fat a$$e$ all in the name of fashion and wealth. These two would eat their youngs if they had any. There is one thing killing for food, etc.. if needed, but, just so they can wear it because of fashion, etc..please.
without fur we would not be here!
without fur we would'nt be here!
what do you have against animals "keith koontz"
Have never been much of a fan of Janet Jackson but now that she has moved to to the top of PETA's naughty list my admiration for her has increased ten fold. Kim Kardashian how ever ....... I don't think there is any thing a Kardashian can do to get me to like them.
If animals are equal and bound to the same ethic rules.. then why hasn't PETA protested at a bear cave or protest amongst lions in Africa because they kill and eat meat when they would be /prefectly fine/ eating plants.. and why do they even take part in pet adoption.. isn't that technically slavery per their credo.. their credo is literally, if you read it, that all animals are equals from humans to garden snails..
It is the unnecessary slaughter of animals just for the sake of FASHION. Imagine if someone killed you not to eat you but to use your skin as fashion wear.
Um, either way I end up dead, so from that standpoint, your reasoning makes absolutely no sense to me.
Those mf'en bears eat you alive and your family. There is a right and wrong way of doing things. Skinning animals alive for the likes for people like these just for fashion is wrong.
Look, I LOVE animals of any kind and I personally wouldn't wear fur, leather, etc. but PETA....you have to stop the silliness and be adult in the way you go about trying to exert animal's rights. I think if you went about things in an adult, legal, more positive and serious way, you would get a lot more accomplished. No one takes you seriously because you do such STUPID things in an effort to get your point across (i.e., throwing red paint on furs, showing videos of animals getting skinned outside of restaurants while people are eating, showing up at political functions in DC nude), I mean, come on. Be adults, go about this in the right way and I think you would get a lot more respect from the public and a lot more support. Although I don't condone wearing dead animals, I also don't feel it's my duty to tell others what to like, wear or say. PETA, you have to change your ways if you want to be taken seriously as an organization.
Oh really 'bladester", PETA has done more for animals in the last 5 years that the Humane Society has done in 100. How dare you step in the way of the American right to protest, and to protect innocent creatures.
Sorry, Chris, but for their respective reaches, PeTA kills way more animals than the HS. The HS takes in more, but they also adopt out a much higher ratio to what they put down. Any animal going through PeTA has less than a one in ten chance of living.
I would like to join PUTPETA – People for the Unethical Treatment of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
ZZZZ... who cares what PETA thinks? No one! Yes, we get it...fur is in bad taste. Can we please move on to fixing the real problems in this country: We need to CREATE jobs!
Good god Janet Jackson is one deformed looking woman.
I think it must be a Jackson thing. None of them are normal looking.
Janet is still beautiful. She's not in her 20s anymore.
PETA has no right to talk. They have a horrible track record with killing animals – they are NOT for the ethical treament of animals, despite their name. This shows statistics to back up what I'm saying – http://i.imgur.com/jrIgv.jpg
Horrendous, pathetic organization based on scare tactics and sensationalism. If you want to support animals, find another way to do it than supporting this sham of an organization.
I made a PETA member cry the other day at the grocery store, she seemed to think that the leather in her shoes, and her belt was plastic but when I told her it came from an animal she wanted to get upset. If you are going to complain about something make sure your not using the things created by what you are complaining about ! Take a good look at the things you use and have, PETA is nothing but a bunch of 2 face people, much like those that protest other things
I totally agree. Not to mention that PETA are outright hypocrites for the number of animals they euthanize in their own compound.
who cares i think peta needs to shut the hell up if they want to wear furs and can afford it well so be it find something better to do withyour time because at the end of the day janet and kim will still b making millions and wearing whatever they please and peta cant do a thing about it!!!!!!!!
There are no innocent animals, there are only animals. You are applying a human moral code where it clearly doesn't belong. Ask Tim Treadwell about the innocent brown bear that ate him and his girlfriend. I hope all those PETA nuts get an innocent deer through the windshield of their hybrid.
What impressed me was that when they recovered his arm from inside the bear, the watch was still running. I wish they would have mentioned what brand it was.. now THERE's a commercial!
Have any of you people looked at how they kill these animals? Pull up a video and come back and tell us if you still feel the same way. You people make me sick that you can defend these rich b!tches
Do you wear leather gloves, or anything leather ? hmmmm ... sounds like you are very misinformed yes there are some places that do bad things but to be honest there arnt many places that are skinning animals alive.
I bet your are 1 of those people thats thinks your meat in the grocery store starts at a warehouse
@beckball how about me skinning you alive starting with ur ballls? u might like it. i can put a little salt on them be4 throwing them in a pot
You don't appear to be dealing with full deck. I'm surprised you're allowed on the street, with you inclinations towards violence.
Killing animals for their meat and fur to survive is one thing. A uber-rich freakazoid that wants a fur jacket just for fun and looks is another. I hope peta terrorizes her and the one good looking kardasian.
You may get your wish: PETA is famous for terrorizing people who disagree with their specific view of the world; from spraypainting people's fur coats, to putting out dog food laced with broken glass and poison in it (in areas where hunting with dogs is allowed), PETA is well known for their hypocracy.
Thanks for sharing your totalitarian mindset. I hope no one terrorizes you simply because you do not conform to their world view.
Man is she looking old and dried up in that picture. Holy crap does she look bad. She is looking more and more like michael and latoya.
Like most people on here I support the animals and do donate to the humane society. PETA will never get one cent from me they are nothing more than wanna-be hipsters looking for something to occupy their time while waiting for the trust fund to kick in.
First of all if Janet's brother's name was not Michael Jackson we would not have even heard of her. Secondly, there is no need to kill animals for clothing anymore, it is barbaric and juvenile. Anyone who parades around in a coat made of animal skin should have their own skin peeled away to see what it feels like. People who do not respect animals and understand they have every right to be on this planet without being tortured and used as entertainment are a WASTE OF SPACE. Thanks Peta for caring.
You obviously have no idea how PETA works – http://i.imgur.com/jrIgv.jpg
I hope you don't own any leather products
Wow- I think the reason that PETA is calling Janet or Kim or any celebrity-for-what that is still wearing fur, because it's almost 2012. As the population continues to boom, the likes of skinning animals alive for the sake of an expensive coat should be out-dated and in poor taste- selfish if you will. Janet and Kim are not going out themselves to kill these poor animals, eat their meat or even acknowledge them. Let's wear hemp, lamb's wool and other items that don't torture the animals for inane aesthetic purposes. The rich will be ignorant, much like the meek will inherit the earth.
uh, they don't skin them alive, they kill them first.
Kate you are part of the problem, please go educate yourself before using your right to freedom of speach
Why wear fur? Lets see...I"m allergic to wool. Cotton, hemp or silk isn't warm enough. Synthetics should never be worn because they take too long to decompose in the land fills, so we can't wear synthetics or else we're not environmentally correct, right? What does that leave me in winter? Leather and fur. When it's 40 below outside, I'm going to wear that which keeps me warm and dry. I try to avoid those products from China, mainly because of the human rights violations. People who live where it never gets cold should not judge those of us that do. OH, and incidently, throwing paint or blood on fur only causes that person to go buy another fur item....kinda defeats the purpose.
PETA is one of the biggest jokes and full of hypocrites. A quick lesson for all of them ( and to those that do not like my post). They sit there and say that the animals at Sea World and places like that should be closed and should not have the "wild animals" trained and performing acts. Yet, they have cats, dogs and birds and their explanation is that they are domesticated pets. Guess what, they were wild before they were domesticated! You bunch of morons! Be safe and be well.
when the world began, we needed animal fur to warm the body from the elements. It had a purpose then. now we live in a world where we have cotton and synthetic materials that can warm and cloth our bodies. We no longer need to rely on Real animal fur. Its now only used for greed and fashion only. Mostly the rich. I think it should be required to have a video display at every retail outlet that sells fur, to show just how the innocent animals are slaughterd for peoples selfish benefit before the purchase. Think of wolfs being the front of the dog family, because they are. They are gentle creatures. Foxes as well. Along with various kinds of animals. They are killed and skinned alive and thrown into pits while still crying out in pain. Its something i wish i had never viewed. It can really scar you mentally. People that do not agree it is barbaric, are people that have no heart, and no feelings for animals, or mankind. God created them for companionship and love as well. They deserve our full respect.
where do you get your facts, PETA? and it's wolves, not wolfs. "kill them and skin them alive"??
Freddy J: Have you ever in your life had to face down a wolf? Take it from someone who has; it ain't fun. And your idea that wolves are "gentle creatures" shows your total ignorance of why they are called "wildlife". And don't even get me started on your statement that God created the animals for loving; I don't think even P.E.T.A. supports beastiality.
Freddy , is this a quote from the church of what happening now? I don't think you will find A N Y reference to animals in any religion as being a companion, because pet dogs and cats are modern day breeding. Ancient little jimmy did not get a pet for his birthday.
Does anyone care what the hell PETA thinks anyway.o one cares n
The animals that ethical furriors use are born and raised to be my coat. If PETA is worried about animal rights they should look at the import of endangered animal pelts that are used. A cow, rabbit, mink and many other animals are ment to be food and/or clothes!
I hope that all of you find this as amusing as I did. I found this quote that seems to fit this story.
"People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because its safer to harass rich women than motocyle gangs." Author Unknown
Yours is by far the best post yet... Juanita J. Hilarious and a bit revealing
Brilliant! PETA go after all the Hell's Angels, Rock n Rollers, Metal Heads, Leather Belt Wearing Everyone, Leather Shoes Wearers. Get everyone to wear hard to degrade synthetics instead.
PETA has got to be the most Anti Nature Group that ever existed.
It not fair to site motorcycle people, when if you look close the PETA people are wearing leather shoes, leather belts and have Gucci leather purses. However, I guess cows are ugly and little foxes are cute so they get the publicity.
Animals have feelings and families. I choose to strive to live in a way that minimizes the suffering of animals–even the tiniest insects are worthy of our respect. I applaud PETA for trying to get our attention-they are using tactics to bite and try to wake some of us up. It is possible to eat enjoyably and live well without wearing animal skins and eating animal flesh. Just as there were once cannibals, eventually humankind will broadly recognize that it is not okay to knock off animals whenever we wish. The meaning of life is not found in fulfilling our own wishes, but helping others find happiness–and even animals wish to be happy. "All the unhappiness in the world comes from wishing ourself to be happy. All the happiness in the world comes from wishing others to be happy" –8th century Buddhist master, Shantideva
You are obviously another one who has no idea how many animals PETA kills, every day. This should give you an idea – http://i.imgur.com/jrIgv.jpg
You're too stupid to be alive. Check out humanewatch.......................
Rick: Based on what you've put forth in your statement, you've either elevated all animals to the level of "human"; or you have lowered humans to the level of "animals". In either case, I take it you oppose any animal killing any other animal for any reason whatsoever. In that case, please come to my house to protest the pack of coyotes who have been killing animals in the neighborhood. If you don't come protest this, I will have to say you are a hypocrite.
The difference between us and other animals is we have the ability to have a spiritual practice and to work on changing our mind towards one that is compassionate and thinking of others first. Being compassionate to animals doesn't mean we don't do anything, as almost anything we do like walking on the ground kills little insects. We can only try to make choices that will help alleviate suffering as much as possible. The coyotes are not trying to do anything wrong as they have only the ability to follow their instincts. We can overcome our selfish instincts through practice.
You've got the right idea. There's no perfect organization but at least this one gets peoples attention. They're too worried they might lose Mcdonalds, and you can tell no ones skipping the super size...
Personally, every time PETA is in the news, it just really makes me want to consume more animal products to spite them. My rule is if I'm willing to wear it, I must be willing to eat it. The good news is cows, rabbits, alligators, sheep etc. all taste as good as they look. Using animal products is fine as long as you're not wasting parts. If you're gonna kill something, at least be respectable enough to use it all.
And let's not forget: If you're gonna kill it, don't torture it before you do. Kill it humanely. Don't skin animals alive:
A couple girl scout leaders had their troop of kids protesting in front of a kentucky fried chicken... It was also my right to turn in right away and get a bucket of chicken and thank them for helping me to decide what I was going to eat :) Seriously, buisness was booming that day!
That wears real fur in this and age should be stoned to death. Skinning animals alive for fashion is wrong.
Really anyone? skinning them alive? where did you ever get that idea? Oh, PETA said that is what they do? Idiots. No animal is skinned alive for it's pelt. How stupid.
Uhhh, beckball? Try doing some reading and research. Unless you like to be blissfully ignorant that is.
really? skinned alive? I think you need to do some research yourself.... ever try to skin a live anything? they wont hold still... youd end up with holes every where....
Hey beckball: Where does anyone get the idea that animals are skinned alive?
WATCH THE VIDEO, D BAG:
The damn animal lifts his head after he has no skin on his entire body.
Stone them to death? You make the people you criticize look like models of civilization. You, however, are a barbarian.
I love animals, I support the Humane Society, but PETA needs to just shut the fu_k up! They are a bunch of low class rejects!
beaver pelts! hell yes! glad she did nt have fur on her breasts
wouldn't you be warm in her fur coat?
There is way more important things going on in the world than what people are wearing!
Old janet lookin' pretty matronly here.
Someone pleeeze cast her as Aunt Jemima...
Why has this comment not been commented on? It's perfect! Although, what script would involve Aunt Jemina...?
Antbody who flashes her breast on live TV is o.k. with me!
I have always believed that PETA thinks way to much of themselves as an organization....if in fact they are an organization at all. They are self righteous, arrogant, annoying, pompas asses that try to humiliate celebraties and others into stopping them from wearing fur. Fur that has long been a means of keeping warm not just for fashion reasons but out of true necessity and survival. So what it worn as a luxury garment, so what it worn as an assessory.....BFD. This is America PETA you f–king morons. Get over yourselves. YOU ARE NOT the moral compass by which all are judge..you really don't even matter to anyone that is why no one really pays your pathetic group any attention. Eat meat, wear all the fur you want America and tell PETA to KISS YOUR FUR COVERED ASS!!!!
I am an animal lover and support animal rights and I don't like fur, hunting, poaching, etc. – HOWEVER, I think PETA is a J-O-K-E. They take everything to the extreme and most of the time, their message gets completely lost. I don't even think they even know what they're fighting for anymore except for publicity. They're the most Grinch-y out of anybody they'll ever pick on the stupid list.
Sigh, PETA, at what point will everyone realize that you all take your position and as usual, go way to far with it.
I agree with a comment I just read 'PETA is the Grinch'; yes indeed, especially on this one.
Here is a thought for Janet Jackson, KK, and all other stars who they appear to target as if common folk do not buy and sport real fur...here is a thought JJ and KK...sue PETA for defamation of character and teach them a lesson or two about 'KEEPING IT REAL!'
PETA is totally out of the loop. Animals furs have been gathered since the dawn of time. Such is life, get over it and get on with your life. Plus, who really gives a crap what any of the Kardasians wear. Like that is really news, its bad enough they have a damn show. And as stated previously, PETA actually went after Mario, a fictional character. So we should give a crap what they say now ? ? What a bunch of idiots.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Dominion means Torture? Kill? Eat? I thought it meant regulation and stewardship (i.e. take care of and respect that which I've created). It also doesn't say humans aren't animals.
Just another Jackson Freak., total freak and getto
Wow... It's called the high road PETA, try taking it sometime.
PETA starts with the high road (an informational letter, etc.) but when cruel fur hags like Janet continue to support torture and cruelty—especially for FASHION—they get personal and nasty. Good for them!
is it now PETA policy to pubilicly and personally bash anyone who doesn't agree with them? sanctimonious a holes.
I find myself in an uncomfortable place..... Siding with Kim K. and Janet J. PETA needs to STFU
I like peta bread with roasted lamb...stupid monkeys!
Deep down every woman loves Fur
Except for the personal beaver pelt.
Only if it was on a live animal. Unfortunately it is illegal to have a (fill in your favorite critter here) for a pet.
There are actually PEOPLE suffering in the world. There are people going hungry in the US everyday. Please get a little thing called "perspective". I think people wearing animal pelts or leather shoes are the least of our worries.
The public that still has some common sense left...
well said. What a waste of money, time and resources
...and what have YOU done for the hungry lately? One issue doesn't preclude the other. They are both valid issues. PETA is not about hungry people eating meat. It's about cruelty.
Not good manners!!
Award, that is!
PETA gets my vote for 'Grinch of the Year' for their so-called 'Save the Whales' ad with a fat woman on it. How can they call themselves compassionate when they treat their fellow humans with such disdain? They deserve the 'Hypocrites of the Year'!
Who cares about people when there are innocent animals to save? I'm sorry, but PETA is a joke. I understand their stance, but they act like jerks. I have no respect for that organization.
You're right Diz. The fat woman is a separate obscenity. But it got your attention, right? Otherwise, you never would have given the whale issue a thought. Oh, wait, you STILL haven't given the whale issue any thought... right?
May I suggest a different acronym for PETA? People Eating Tasty Animals?
@bee clever? that joke is from 1995 or so.
Yeah...it was sarcasm.
yep People Eating Tasty Animals is old but still fun to see slapped on the bumper next to a real PETA bumper sticker loads of fun even better to watch when one of these crazy peta lovers get in and drive off with the additional bumper sticker without them knowing about it . you know who I'm talking about the owner of a yellow Volvo MD tags near clarksville you were at a PETA rally outside the Grocery store near rt32 this summer how long before you noticed the new bumper sticker???? Ha Ha Ha
seriously, PETA are nothing but immature babies.
Go finish your beer and get off the Internet.
meat meat meat meat meat meat meat meat...Now that i said that...I would Like to Say...I feel like chicken tonight...like chicken tonight...like chicken tonight...Now on a serius note...We as mas for years have worn animal flesh for billions of years...adem and eve didnt go around naked forever...but you guys have a passion for something and I respect that...but when you heard Petas' name it ment something...now you guys are like the NAACP just finding the smallest stuff to pick at...they went after a asian for winning to make a monument of Martin Luther King Jr. say that "asians did NOT go through slavery...stop with the bull and make a point already...
Billions of years? Let's try 2.2 million years, Captain Herbalife. And seriously, Adam and Eve? You can't come up with a better argument than a Biblical reference?
It's completely ridiculous to attack an individual for their personal choice. i'm a vegetarian, but i don't throw that nonsense in people's faces. kim can do whatever the hell she wants and peta should back off. theyre annoying and out of line with the snippy comments and "clever" quips!
If you truly think wearing fur is okay, you are lying about being a vegetarian.
JL – if you think that narrowly, then you aren't a reasonable human being.
"i'm a vegetarian, but i don't throw that nonsense in people's faces"
You just did.
Darcy: you aren't really a vegetarian are you? You're just saying that to try to give legitimacy to your comment, like some political shills do: "I've been a Democrat all my life, but this year I have to vote for a Republican."
Being a vegetarian you can't wear fur? Why the hell not? You don't have to be a vegan cos you love animals, maybe you just like fruit and vegies. or are some sort of diet, or health reasons, whatever. Do you think Steve Jobs was a vegertarian cos he loves animals?
i think its time to say goodbye to Janet.
Bite your tongue! Janet is a ICON – today, tomorrow and forever!
Agreed. She's just a disgusting pig with little talent and too much plastic surgery. Never understood why people have tried to make her into an icon.
An ICON? A CON is more like it. Michael in drag. Same with LaToilet.
Janet IS an icon. She has won several prestigious awards and has made great music. Whether you like it or not.
This was such an ugly and disrespectful article. I love animals but at the same time there are better ways to enlighten people about being aware and protecting animals and planet than slamming them on CNN. You begin to lose credibility and respect when you slam people in this manner. I don't like it and for that I can't support PETA.
Respectfully, I don't think you would even have a clue that any animal suffers because of your choices unless your attention is caught by an article like this one... What, for you, Paula, would be a better way to bring this to your attention?
Awwww, I guess you didn't like seeing the poor animals suffer. TOO BAD> DO something about it instead of sticking your ugly head in the sand. DO SOMETHING like PETA is. MAKE PEOPLE AWARE>
"DO SOMETHING like PETA is. MAKE PEOPLE AWARE>"
The only thing peta is doing is lining their pockets with cash.
Who respects Kardashian or Janet Jackson anyway? Personally, I agree with animal rights, but am not a big fan of PETA, I think they go too far.
Better Dead than Fed is PETA's motto.
Pets Killed by PETA in last 3 years:
2010: of 2,345 pets received 63 were transferred, 44 were adopted, 2,200 were euthanized (93.8%)
2009: of 2,366 pets received 31 were transferred, 8 were adopted, 2,301 were euthanized (97.3%)
2008: of 2,216 pets received 34 were transferred, 7 were adopted, 2,124 were euthanized (95.8%)
more euthanization rates:

Well, shucks...that's embarrassing, lol. Naughty naughty, spilling their nasty little secret. But then you did before I could. Well done.
Did you ever think that euthanasia may be the better, more humane option for these animals? PETA doesn't steal your pet from you and kill it, they seek out the lost causes and try to save them and get them adopted, it doesn't always happen. A lot of these animals that you included as "pets" are actually livestock, that were destined to be killed and were living in misery due to sickness, malnutrition, and neglect. Your "facts" need checked.
give us a break. There is no way that 90+% of the animals PETA killed were better off DEAD. PETA KILLS ANIMALS THAT COULD HAVE HAD A LIFE WITH PEOPLE. There is no way to dispute the fact. On average, an animal shelter gets less than 10% of it's animals in such condition that euthanazia is the proper answer. Why did the other 80% of these animals have to be killed? Was it because PETA doesn't actually care about animals? I believe that to be absolutely true.
Where -other than on publicity stunts- does PETA actually spend it's money on ACTUAL animal welfare? I've found no one that can provide the answer that says 'here's the productive things that PETA does to ACTUALLY help animals'. You can't count the publicity stunt garbage because that does not in any way help the animals.
You really think that 90%+ of those animals were un-adoptable? That's hogwash. They go out of their way to kill even baby animals. A few years ago there was a story about some PeTA people who 'rescued' a litter of kittens from a veterinarian's office. They were found later tossing their carcasses in a trash can. That's the kind of things these people do.
thank you for posting these figures. PETA should have made themselves the Gringe this year.
I'm against trapping animals for their fur and I would like to see more humane ways to raise animals for consumption, but PETA is not the organization to help with that. They associate themselves with ELF a terrorist organization.
Sorry PETA, you lose on this one.
"Did you ever think that euthanasia may be the better, more humane option for these animals?"
Well, no not really, but if anyone suggests it for PETA nutjobs, now I'm listening...
They may not steal pets, but they falsify claims about finding homes for the pets they take into their care and then euthanize them. They are far more hazardous to animals than most other people or organizations.
And no one cares about the Kardashians....they're Troglodytes.
wonders what rock freemee has been living under,,,,,,freeing livestock??? This is slogans organizations like PETA as well as Humane Society of America put out and unfortunately uneducated people swallow hook, line and sinker. Humane Society of America's stats of euthanizing animals is almost identical to PETA.
I love that you cited your source as well. All too often people spout off stuff without giving their sources–which is often pulled out of their own backside.This seriously adds weight to your point.
Are you all confusing PETA with the SPCA? PETA doesn't confiscate animals, adopt them out or euthanize them. That's the SPCA. PETA is an organization whose sole purpose is to bring our cruel treatment of non-human animals to our attention so we can be better informed about how they suffer for some of the choices we make.
If PETA didn't euthanize them, they would starve, and suffer. The reason so many are put down is because jack oles like yourself breed for profit and don't give a crap about the animals. You people should be required to have a license to breed.
When a PeTA respresentative shows up at your door promising to try to find a home for your pet and then turns around and euthanizes the animal in a van before leaving the premises, then there is a problem. The organization is dishonest and embraces hypocrisy. Apparently, so do you.
If so many municipalities and a bunch of charitable organizations can find the time, cash and inclination to operate "No Kill" shelters, why can't PETA?
Allow me to educate you. First of all, PETA does not have shelters. They DO accept animals and place them if at all possible. Unfortunately, the animals that PETA receives are either very elderly, sick, or un-adoptable due to aggressiveness. They euthanize if absolutely necessary.
They may euthanize 2,000 animals a year, but when you look at the big picture, that somewhere between 4 and 6 MILLION animals are euthanized in the U.S. every year, you can see that the PETA kill rate is actually very low.
PETA should donate the fur from all these animials for coats.
this is why peta euthanizes (if you can take it): http://www.peta.org/b/thepetafiles/archive/2009/03/30/why-we-euthanize.aspx
until its illegal, to each his own.
The fact that you compare your cause to slavery is both laughable and pathetic. Perspective Richard, perspective....
If PETA wasn't a sham organization – that merely exists to get it's own name in the papers, I'd be with you richard.
but because the truth is that they spend little money and effort on the actual animals and nearly all thier money on paying thier execs and performing the stupid publicity stunts doesn't seem to bother you.
well, it bothers many, many thinking people.
What a ridiculous comparison to insinuate that fur is similar to slavery or women voting. The main problem you should have with chaozz 's comment was that he is implying that the government should be controlling such a mundane issue. The government should not have any say in what I wear or eat. I don't wear fur because it's not my style, but I think it can look good on other people. Maybe PETA should focus their attention on speaking out for kids who are abused or another worthwhile cause.
PETA is the grinch of the year in my books. When they went after mario, a fictional character, they lost the last bits of respect I had for them. PETA is now just a bunch of d bag hipsters trying to make people feel bad for doing what we have been doing since the beginning of time.
I have been saying this for years! I am for ethical treatment of all God's creatures, but he put them here for our use and if the need is for clothing then so be it! Tanning an animal hide is a skill that humans need to keep. This earth and our society will not last forever. choosing to live off the land is admirable and if I wear buck skin to keep warm its not anyone's business
Why doesnt PETA just go occupy something....bunch of cry babies...
It took you this long to lose your respect for PETA?
The organization that exists for the singular purpose of getting it's name in the news?
They lost my respect years and years ago.
Did you know that PETA euthanizes (aka kills) more dogs and cats than most other animal shelters? That they adopt out nearly no animals. All while claiming to be promoting the welfare of animals? It's true – go check out the factual data on the internet.
I agree! stupid PETA. Such a silly cause
Actually I would have nominated the CEO of GoDaddy who went trophy hunting for an elephant in Africa.
I am a lady lawyer, young and beautiful. And now I am seeking a good man who can give me a real lo;ve, so I got on BillionaireFriends.COMit's where ri;ch men and women loo;king for comp;anionship for a fabulous lifestyle.
no matter what means PETA uses in their ad campaigns, the message remains the same and if you don't agree YOU ARE ALL MORONS. Poaching, extinction, skinning animals alive for fashion – that is okay with you? Stop the world, I wanna get off or better yet would be get you sick f******s off the world to save it. The animals were here first.
@icareabouttheearth ... they are animals, we are humans
here is the food chain
PETA's attack on mario proves they are full of bull$h!t. A fake animal in a videogame?
Worse, is that they attacked Mario, when Pokemon probably would have been a more suitible choice. Pokemon, you force animals to fight each other in a sadistic world in order to gain war trophys, "Gym Badges".
I like pokemon though.
Here's a hint: Humans are animals (they're not plants, eubacteria, archaebacteria, fungi, or protobacteria)
What do you have against nature, of which humans are a part? When the lion feels sorry for the gazelle, the hyena feels sorry for the zebra, or the crocodile feels sorry for the wildebeest, I might feel sorry for the fox or the mink.
PETA is absolutely the most pathetic group of activists in modern times. Imagine all these people who could actually do something useful for hungry or homeless people, mat the children would be nice, who waste time and money pushing an ignorant and illogical opinion on people. Throwing "blood" on people? Come on these are wild creatures, and animals that are meant for the purpose they are used for, torture, actual torture, would be one thing, but anyone who would act this way in response to the vast majority of cases should have a large rock thrown upon them for "trampling Mother Earth"
It doesn't really matter what you or what anyone else thinks of PETA (And yes, that Super Mario thing was weird). What does matter is that they are correct: animals are cruelly killed for their fur. It's barbaric, it's inhumane and it's not necessary. Shame on anyone who supports the industry. (Not saying that you to.)
Please don't compare PETA to a Grinch as it's an insult to Grinches wherever they may be.
to T: get over yourself. "I am for ethical treatment of all God's creatures, but he put them here for our use". They were NOT put here for your use. You and your male god do not own them. And by the way, there are no gods. They are the fictional creations of male human animals to give themselves the appearance of divine authority to do what ever they want - as is relevent to this issue, to kill any other non-human animal they want to, for whatever purpose they have in mind. The human animal is not the supreme owner of all other life forms. We are only their equals.
To say that animals were put here for our use is the same mentality that led to slavery. It's cruel and oppressive. PETA has done an enormous job of opening the world's eyes to the suffering of animals – how can you fault them for that? And, btw, they also said that the Mario thing was tongue in cheek.
PETA is so over the top that I'm amazed that they are still around. I love animals too but not at the expense of common sense. These radicals are a pimple on the ass of progress!
Yay PETA!!! Keep it up. And to all the people who say it is a worthless cause. Lie down so I can skin you alive.... creeps.
@T: I wonder why He put 1/3 million species of beetle and pathogenic microbes here? God works in mysterious ways, I guess. By the way, I have this amazing ability to make accurate predictions about people given limited info about them. Based on your statements, I'll predict the following:
You believe the earth is 6000 years old, give or take
You read, if not daily at least weekly, your horoscope
You're a Republican and card-carrying member of the NRA
You believe the fossil record is "Gods little joke"
You believe every unexplained phenomenon is due to a miracle
You gladly accept the products and benefits of science, but reject its methods
How many did I get right??
I could go on but I need to start thinking about how I can use those loriciferans living in the ocean sediments God so generously has provided me.
OK, you can go stick your head back in the sand now.
PETA should focus on industrial meat production methods and leave fur alone. It's a miniscule part of using animals as an economic resource. Pelting, tanning, hunting and trapping are useful skills that people shouldn't soon lose. Down with PETA
Why don't these big bad peta folks show some real cojones and go full blast after the NRA? I'm pretty sure they kill more animals (humans included) before daylight than all the furriers combined.
I got 65% discount for whacking the fox myself! Mama's on my back!!!!
PETA has never been respectible. It's cute to them to make a game trashing Mario, then as soon as gamers call them out, they whine that people can't take a joke. I once showed up to a PETA meeting in a leather jacket and a T-Shirt that said "Animals Taste Good"; let me tell you, PETA members can't take a joke either.
God put animals here for our use.....Newt! Is that you?? There is no rational response for such irrational claims. Who cares about PETA. They are zealots, just like you. What I care about is how we treat people, animals, and our planet...
One of the first thing they profile when checking out a suspect for srial killing, is whether or not they have a record of mistreating animals.
Anyone who is against PETA obviously has guilt issues. Do you also wear fur? or kill animals? Why would you be against an organization that has done so much for animal rights?
Keep up the good work PETA – we are behind you.
I agree. I had some respect for PETA in the past, however these personal attacks are ridiculous. In fact, PETAS ads now make me want to go out and by a fur clothing piece. They are driving away all reasonable people, alienating those on the fence, and simply pushing away all polite and sensible people. The comment toward Janet's career is wrong, un-called for, and atrociously rude.
Elmer Fudd was also a very bad person.
Humans are animals you disgusting F UCK TARDS. If you dont respect the others on this planet you can kiss the food chain that feeds you GOODBYE. PETA'S only doing what the rest of you can't with that ten percent brain function. Now get back to facebook where you belong...
ASIANS, BLACKS & LATINOS to Boycott NBC and Sponsors!
RadioMetrix News- On the Stone & Digital Dave radio show an Asian American Activist proposed a boycott of NBC and their sponsors for the hiring of Howard Stern as the America’s Got Talent host. He sighted one example of Howard Stern calling for all Asians to be slaves in America. In addition he sighted Howard Stern in black face with big white lips using the N-word and his past racial slurs against Latinos.
Call NBC TV at 212-664-4444 NY offices or 818-777-1000 LA offices to complain.
@T And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Dominion means Torture? Kill? Eat? I thought it meant regulation and stewardship (i.e. take care of and respect that which I've created). He also doesn't say humans aren't animals.
@formermarinesergeant here is why peta euthanizes (for the ethical treatment of animals) http://www.peta.org/b/thepetafiles/archive/2009/03/30/why-we-euthanize.aspx
The animals used in furs are bred and raised for that function. Very few places actually skin the animals alive and NO place in the US in legally allowed to.
