Betty White Goes "Naked" For LA Animal Shelters

When I first spied this story, I thought Betty White had managed to land herself in a fur-free nude campaign for PETA. I’m sure many people would agree that White would be up for such a stunt.

However, this story actually has nothing to do with the 88-year-old actress showing some skin. Instead, much to the disappointment of vegetarians and vegans everywhere, it’s all about the launch of a new hot dog in White’s honor.

Yesterday in California’s San Fernando Valley, Pink Hotdog’s honored White with a new menu offering called the “Betty ‘Naked in the City’ Hot Dog”. It was all part of a grand opening celebration for their latest restaurant which benefited LA Animal Service’s East and West Valley Animal Shelters.

I have to say that while I’m well aware that White considers herself an “animal advocate” and not an “activist”, it’s kind of odd to see her promote a hot dog. I mean, would she not stand up for the lives of pigs too? I know everyone picks their battles, but for someone so involved in animal welfare, you’d think she would shy away from such an endorsement.

More pics of the event available here.
