OT--Just about fell off my chair on this one..
Just need to type "something" to get my bearings backkkk..umm I love going on a certain "celebrity gossip site", this a.m. (thank god I had my coffee already) there is a post about Dave Navarro posing for a Peta Ad...anyway (out of extreme curiosity) umm and wanting to see his body...I clicked it, well during the "photo" shoot... and Dave talking.. suddenly a horrible video began, showing extreme cruelty (I think cause I closed my eyes and couldn't close the site fast enough) to animals for "fur" umm with audio... dam, I wish there was a warning before I opened it....cause now I am spent!!!!

Oh you poor thing! I HATE animal cruelty, but the way some of these groups go about their ads and such is just WRONG. I agree, there should have been some sort of warning for something like that. What happened to tact in America?

It succumbed to bad taste and manners about the time South Park began to air on Comedy Central.

I am not "complaining" about PETA...it was "part" of the "photo shoot" as Dave was explaining how he "changed" his opinion on "fur"...then they(as part of the ad) began to "roll" the actual footage of "executions"....I just didn't expect that!!!! I just wanted to see a nice bod ..

Yeah, I kind of lost any respect I had for PETA when they ran that ad campaign where they juxtaposed images of slaughtered pigs with images from Nazi death camps.

As to wanting to check out the hot bod, can't say I blames ya

Also PETA are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. They preach about not wanting to kill animals, but they themselves have actually euthanized thousands of animals under their care. They have threatened violence on animal testing facilities, and then commit euthanasia when they can't figure out what to do with the animals they have "rescued".

My two cents

This is potentially a hot topic so lets be mindful of the forum guidelines and each others opinions.
