PETA's Pissed At Dita Von Teese Over Foie Gras Confession
So remember a while back when Ecorazzi told you that burlesque star Dita Von Teese was working with the People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals to raise awareness for the spaying and neutering of companion animals — well apparently companion animals are the only animals Ms. Von Teese cares about.
PETA is so very angry over comments Dita made to the New York Times, saying: “My guilty pleasure is eating foie gras in
“We were aware that Dita is not a vegetarian before working with her, and she has brought much needed attention to an important PETA campaign promoting spaying and neutering of companion animals.
But foie gras entails some of the cruelest factory farming abuses, which is why most people choose not to eat it. Foie gras is made from the grotesquely enlarged livers of ducks and geese who are cruelly force-fed by pipes that are shoved down their throats every day, pumping up to four pounds of grain and fat into their stomachs. We hope that Dita does the right thing and eliminates foie gras from her diet.”
Well I hope PETA does the right thing and eliminates Dita Von Teese from THEIR diet! Sorry guys, but as a card-carrying PETA member I’m totally outraged that a fur-wearing, foie gras eating semi-celeb is representing my cause! Come on guys, it’s time — let’s “neuter” our ties with Dita!
