Jennifer Lawrence has drawn the ire of animal rights group PETA. In The Hunger Games, Jennifer plays a hunter named Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is so good with a bow that Peeta comments that his father always bought her squirrels because she always shot them right in the eye.
Before that, she skinned a squirrel in her Oscar nominated role for Winter’s Bone. Why does Jennifer Lawrence hate squirrels so much?!?
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, she talked about the gross, squirrel skinning scene. She said, “I should say it wasn’t real, for PETA. But screw PETA.”
Of course, her comments didn’t sit too well with PETA, who is now on the attack against the rising star. The organization’s president, Ingrid Newkirk said, “She’s young and the plight of animals somehow hasn’t yet touched her heart. As Henry David Thoreau said, ‘The squirrel you kill in jest, dies in earnest.’ When people kill animals, it is the animals who are ‘screwed’, not PETA, and one day I hope she will try to make up for any pain she might cause any animal who did nothing but try to eke out a humble existence in nature.”
Justin Bieber has joined with PETA for awould be pet owners to go to a local shelter instead of buying from a pet store or a breeder.
Every year, approximately 6 to 8 million animals find themselves in animal shelters, and 3 to 4 million of those may never find a new home. It’s up to us to help them—so always spay or neuter your animal companions, never buy animals from a breeder or a pet store.
Justin joins a growing list of celebrities—including Lea Michele, Kellan Lutz, Pink, Sean Kingston, Kelly Osbourne, and Travie McCoy—who have teamed up with PETA to help animals and so can you! Adopt a pet today!
As we’ve previously reported, Lindsay Lohan is having a bit of financial difficulties and is seeking a sponsor for her treatment at the Betty Ford Center. Since, she has been offered a job at a porn company, as well as an offer from PETA to go meat-free for an entire year.
According to the offer, they will give her $10,000 if she stays meat-free during her stay at the facility, but if she makes it for an entire year, they will double it. Lindsay is reportedly giving the offer.
A source close to Lindsay said, “Lindsay is seriously considering the offer from PETA. There is thoughtful consideration about PETA’s very generous offer. Lindsay loves animals, and looks at it as a ‘win-win’ since being a vegetarian is a healthier lifestyle that is striving for.
Should she do it? If she’s in need of the money, it’s an honest way to make it. Just a small change to her diet and she’s good to go!
Justin Gaston, Miley Cyrus’ ex-boyfriend, shows off the only reason Miley ever allowed him to exploit their relationship in the first place.
He got naked with fellow models Giglianne Braga and Ben Elliot for PETA’s “If I Can Dream” campaign.
What’s funny about this photo is how they unscrupulously hacked off bits and pieces of the guy’s leg. Jeez. The Photoshop gods are weeping. It’s almost as bad as the Demi Moore hip kerfuffle.
PETA brought back Golden Girl Bea Arthur from the grave for their new campaign aimed at McDonalds’ chicken slaughtering methods.
Apparently, she left money to them in her will.
What do you think? Poor taste? Or, get ‘m girl?
Dave Navarro poses nude for PETA’s “Ink Not Mink” campaign, showing off all of his tattoos for the planet.
He said, “Several years ago, I saw video footage of animals being skinned alive and screaming, and it, it honestly is the most horrific, inhumane thing I’ve ever seen.”
He added, “Some of the simple things you can do to help save animals is not buy fur, stay away from products that have been animal tested. It’s really very, very simple to just support something or buy something that doesn’t brutalize animals like this.”
How many tattoos can you count?
After PETA attacked Kelis for wearing fur, the singer told them to eff off and responded back in kind.
Now, they’ve gotten back to her, in a more calmer response:
I hope that this finds you well. I’m writing today because we’ve been inundated with phone calls and e-mails from folks alerting us to photos of you wearing a fur hat and coat while out in London over the weekend.
Please know that animals killed for their fur endure immense suffering. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, strangled, genitally electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their pelts. We hope that you’ll take a moment to watch an undercover exposé of fur farms, hosted by Eva Mendes, at http://www.peta.org/FeatureEvaMendes.asp.
If you enjoy the look of fur, renowned designers, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, and Vivienne Westwood, couple fashion with compassion and use only faux fur in their lines. We hope you found this information helpful and will join countless celebrities, like Charlize Theron, Khloe Kardashian, Nia Long, Kid Sister, Pink, and Michelle Obama, in publicly swearing off fur.
attacking Kelis was nasty? My guess is that they’re going to go after Ke$ha next, after she gained enough popularity to afford this fur coat.You think PETA
The “Tik Tok” singer was seen exiting the taping of “The Wendy Williams Show” on Thursday. Oh the outrage!

Oh snap. I couldn’t have said that any better if I tried. Kelis wrote a letter to PETA in response to their attack on her for wearing fur.
Here’s an excerpt:
There is no humane way to kill anything, let me start there. It’s unfortunate but it’s part of life. With that being said, I would eat pterodactyl if you found some and you told me it was meaty and delicious. And after doing a very minimal amount of research……. I found out that the founder Ingrid Newkirk is completely batty. I had a feeling but she far exceeded my expectations. I mean certifiably insane! Lol this chicks will is nuts, google it – it’s a riot! Beyond the fact that I think she’s a diabetic, which means she needs insulin, which is taken from lab pigs (I know this because my sister happens to be in veterinary school), which would be completely hypocritical. It’s like don’t abuse animals unless it can help me.
Read the full response. She’s right, though. It seems hypocritical for that PETA bitch to rip her a new one for wearing fur, yet she’s using insulin from lab pigs.
Well played, Kelis. Well played.
Oh I hate to be a tattle tale, but Rihanna was seen departing Paris via the Eurostar for her secret London gig — wearing fur.
Someone’s calling PETA (not me). But I do expect that they’ll see this and issue her a stern letter with some stupid puns about her “Rated R” wardrobe or some crap.
I know how much you pervs would rather she join their “I’d Rather Go Naked” campaign, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon.
