Pamela Anderson Is On the Clock

Published by PETA.

Speaking up for animals is a full-time, 24/7 job. Just ask Pamela Anderson.

As we told you earlier this month, when Montréal officials blocked the launch of Pamela Anderson’s sexy new vegetarian ad campaign for PETA, she instead unveiled the ad during her previously planned news conference for the Just for Laughs festival.

Pam and PETA are grateful to Restaurant Globe for hosting the impromptu pro-veg event, but while she was there, Pam noticed that the restaurant serves foie gras. So when she wrote a thank-you note to Restaurant Globe, she added a plea, explaining the extreme cruelty that’s involved in foie gras production and asking the restaurant to remove the “delicacy of despair” from its menu.

This is why Pam is an honorary PETA director—she never misses an opportunity to help animals. So if you ever notice foie gras on a restaurant menu, just think, “WWPD?” (“What Would Pam Do?”) Then talk to the manager or owner, explain how foie gras is made by force-feeding geese sometimes to the point of causing their internal organs to rupture, and politely ask that the restaurant stop serving foie gras. Geese—and Pam—will be thankful!
