Wow. It’s bad enough to have PETA slapping you upside the head, but how about an entire country? Gong Li found out the hard way the other day when she gave a talk arguing for protection of the environment — while wearing fur. Li was proposing plans to clean up the environment while serving as an ambassador to the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. The media, as always, had a field day. From the article,

“And now politicians and citizens of China alike are calling for her removal from the national body. Plaintiff Zhou Xin says, ‘I want to warn Gong Li that if you are going to be a spokesperson for a cause, then you have to take on the social responsibility.'”

When Gong Li’s manager was asked why she chose to wear what she did, he replied that critics are only slamming her because they are jealous of her success. Well, um, maybe. That, or they are being critical because she chose to wear fur. Yup, I betcha that’s it.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
