PETA: Too Sexy for YouTube?

Published by PETA.

Like pretty much everyone else on the planet, we at PETA have a YouTube account. Unlike (most) other accounts, we use ours to broadcast and share PETA’s funny and provocative ads and public service announcements. Turns out that some of our ads may have been a little too hot for TV YouTube.

After uploading our “Sexy Celebs” video—which features some of our best, hottest, and “nakedest” celebrity ads—we found that, within the week, the video had been rejected and our account temporarily suspended. Oops! Sorry, YouTube! We knew that PETA’s ads are often too hot for TV—but we didn’t know that you would object to a little friendly side-boob too!

Though YouTube might not be too happy with our video (maybe we’ll work on one using burkas soon), we’re still more than happy to show it to you if you promise to pass it on. Behold—a video you won’t find anywhere else!

It’s not just side-boob that YouTube has recently banned. They have also banned other videos of ours in the past, including our (actually pretty tame) “When I Grow Up” video and footage from our Turkey Farm Investigation. Give them a look and judge for yourself! Do you think YouTube was right to ban these videos?

“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
