Catherine Zeta-Jones Protested on B'Way
For Immediate Release:February 10, 2010

New York -- The newest drama to hit Broadway is PETA vs. Zeta. A Little Night Music star Catherine Zeta-Jones--who has a fetish for wearing anything that once moved--has been named the worst-dressed celebrity in PETA's annual poll. To call attention to the many species of skeletons in Zeta-Jones' closet, PETA will hold a lively and loud protest outside the Walter Kerr Theater just as A Little Night Music audiences arrive for the show's Saturday matinee.
When: Saturday, February 13, 1 p.m.
Where: Walter Kerr Theater, 219 W. 48th St. (between Broadway and Eighth Avenue), New York
"With her creepy cow-skin pants, ugly fox coats, and dead-alligator bag, Catherine Zeta-Jones looks like she's working her way through Noah's ark with a knife," says PETA's Dan Mathews. "Maybe she's trying to get into character for an upcoming role as a serial killer--or a taxidermist."
Protesters will wave signs that read, "Catherine--Shed the Skins," and will hold posters that show the cruelty of the fur, leather, and exotic-skins trades. Animals who are killed for their fur are electrocuted, poisoned, or gassed or have their necks broken. Cows who are killed for their skin suffer from painful mutilations and physical abuse on factory farms and endure cruel treatment during transport and slaughter. Exotic animals fare no better: Snakes, for example, have a hose rammed into their mouths and are pumped full of water so that workers can more easily cut off the animals' tightened skin.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
