Oh controversy, controversy, controversy. Always so much controversy!

Last week my partner in crime Michael d’Estries wrote a story about a new PETA billboard in Jacksonville, FL that had everyone talking. The billboard featured an overweight woman in a bathing suit with the words: “Save the whales.  Lose the Blubber. Go Vegetarian.”

As imagined, this campaign created quite the stir and many of you commented on the site and told us how you felt.

Well, today PETA announced that they will be taking the down the billboard in question and replacing it with a new one that simply reads: “GONE. Just Like All the Pounds Lost by People Who Go Vegetarian. GoVeg.com.”

Of course not all vegetarians are stick thin, but it has been proven that vegetarians are on average 10 to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters. I’m just sayin’.

What do you think? Is the new billboard more appropriate, or are you still fuming? Chime in and share your thoughts!
