Earlier today we mentioned that while HSUS President Wayne Pacelle shared his thoughts about the new Britney Spears video, Circus, PETA had remained relatively quiet on the subject. Looks like we spoke too soon! In a new post on their blog, PETA writer Christine Dore says:
“As Britney is such a victim of the paparazzi and always complaining and crying about how she hates to be held up in her guarded house and can’t feel free, she of all people should be able to relate to the horror that captive animals go through when they’re used for entertainment… Animals are ripped away from their mothers at a young age, kept in chains, and prodded with electric shock devices to make them perform. That doesn’t sound so voluntary to me.”
But there’s more! PETA has set up an online form that lets people write to Britney (care of her manager, Larry Rudolph), urging the star to leave animals out of her future music videos, concerts, television performances, and promotions. Will Brit Brit listen? Only time will tell!!
