article imageNew PETA anti-fur ad sparks controversy

By Kevin Fitzgerald     Nov 16, 2012 in Lifestyle
Norfolk - A new ad showing model Joanna Krupa with long hair coming out of the bottom of her panties has caused some disturbance amongst certain viewers. The ad equates wearing fur to showing off pubic hair.
UPI, which features an image of the ad, states that the poster reads: "Fur trim: unattractive," and "Don't ruin your look with fur trim."
Many people feel that the ad goes too far and is grotesque in its nature. Some people are also upset by the nudity.
Adweek reports that Lindsay Rajit, PETA's associate director of campaigns, defends that latest ad. She stated:
"Years ago, it was disgraceful for women to show their knees and we all laugh at that today. And I think that some day, nudity will stop being interesting ... and when that happens, we will stop using that tactic. But right now, it's a really fun way to grab attention, and get people on the site. And that's why we do it."
Krupa, who is a model and is also a cast member on "The Real Housewives of Miami," is no stranger to controversy. She upset many people who are devoted to the Catholic faith by posing in another PETA ad showing her nude with angel wings while holding a large crucifix.
PETA also recently launched a controversial Thanksgiving campaign to try to convince children not to eat turkey.
