Pamela Anderson's PETA ad banned in Canada: 'I think that city officials are looking at this lovely ad and confusing "sexy" with "sexist".


The folks at PETA love controversy. The "P" in their name may well stand for "provocateur"

So, they must be loving that the most recent ad featuring long-time advocate (and Canadian-born) Pamela Anderson is banned in Canada.

Canadian officials branded the ad "sexist" and said that a planned unveiling of the ad in Montreal could not take place because the required permit had been refused by local officials.

Anderson was said to be shocked by the ban decision--SHOCKED: 'In a city that is known for it's 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. In some parts of the world women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas- is that next? I didn't think Canada would be so puritanical.'

And PETA's senior Vice President, Dan Matthews said: 'I think that city officials are looking at this lovely ad and confusing "sexy" with "sexist".

In the ad Anderson's nearly naked body, clad in just a teeny tiny bikini, is covered in paint markings that mimic a butcher's diagram. Her flesh is marked 'breast', 'ribs' and 'rump' and the caption reads 'All animals have the same parts. Have a heart, go vegetarian.'
