When longtime animal rights advocate Pamela Anderson was assigned the Paso Doble (a dance based on the movements performed by a matador during a bullfight) for Monday’s performance on Dancing with the Stars, she knew it was the perfect opportunity to make a statement against bullfighting.

Even before the performance of “Dance, Don’t Bullfight,” Anderson and partner Damian Whitewood received an outpouring of support from PETA who immediately announced the news on all its blogs and social networking venues.

“Pam’s tireless work to expose cruelty in the meat and fur trades has created a very emotional bond with PETA’s two million members and supporters who are thrilled to see her and vote for her on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’” said a PETA spokesperson.

Some are left asking, are PETA supporters alone keeping the blonde bombshell in the running for top honors on ABC’s DWTS? With so many supporters of PETA, the question is legitimate. Yet, if anyone is to be allowed to dance her way to the top, shouldn’t it be one who is willing to bring attention to animal cruelty?

PETA supporters weren’t Anderson’s only fans this week. Her dance received a score of 7 from all the judges.
