Lettuce Lady Livens Up LAX

Written by PETA | December 31, 2009

I’m willing to bet my Tofutti Cuties that these TSA employees managed to get a (visual) full-body scan.


Can you say “bombshell” in an airport? Fans of Meet the Parents probably agree that it wouldn’t be wise, and after the Christmas Day attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound airplane, I’m not sure. But I’ve no doubt that’s what United Airways passengers were thinking as they feasted their eyes on PETA’s Lettuce Lady yesterday. Our lavish lady was at LAX, sharing her lifesaving message, her charms, and Tofurky sandwiches with hungry fliers en route to Detroit.


Passengers at the gate ate up our Lettuce Lady’s lifesaving message—and sandwiches.


While most Americans will never fall victim to a terrorist attack, those who consume pepperoni and provolone increase their risk of succumbing to other killers (heart attacks, cancer, or strokes) to one in four or less. The best security for airline travelers (and everyone else) is to jettison meat, eggs, and dairy products from their diets.

    I didn’t think using a woman was wrong at all. How else are you supposed to spread the word or a cause? By using no one? Someone will always have an issue with one thing or another. PETA I think it was a great idea. Go Lettuce Lady!

    Re: Concerned. We feel that all people should be free to use their minds and bodies as political instruments to bring attention to animal suffering like this, and we appreciate any effort to help those who have no voice. We use all available opportunities to reach millions of people with powerful messages. We have found that people do pay more attention to our racier actions, and we consider the public’s attention to be extremely important. Sometimes this requires tactics—like our lovely lettuce ladies—that some people find racy or outrageous, but part of our job is to shake people up and even shock them in order to initiate discussion, debate, questioning of the status quo, and of course, action. We respect your right to disagree with our tactics but hope that you will continue to support projects that you do agree with, such as our free vegetarian starter kit giveaways or our low-cost spay/neuter clinics. Thank you for voicing your concerns.

    I find this very similar to your Worcester advert. Not impressed at all. You are reaching to the bottom and are making no statement by acts like this. You should be ashamed. If health and animal exploitation awareness is your cry, don’t exploit the female to compensate. Very unimpressed even after all the good that you have accomplished.

    I’m not sure how this will be recieved but I guess it’s worth a try. I became a vegetarian about 2years ago. I tried telling people to stop eating meat but found that some of us just can’t or won’t so I found another way that seems to be a lot more humane. just check it out if you can’t give up meat at least buy from any of these farms. Thanks!
