Dressed as a sexy “Little Bo Peep” and cradling a plush lamb, longtime PETA supporter Courtney Stodden will appear in PETA’s “live ad” in the heart of Hollywood on Tuesday, just days ahead of Black Friday—the busiest shopping day of the year. In front of a backdrop that features rolling hills and proclaims, “Save the Sheep! Be Wool-Free,” Stodden will pose for photos with fans as she encourages everyone to shop vegan this holiday season.
Where: Hollywood & Highland Center, 6801 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles
When: Tuesday, November 24, 12 pm
“Every wool sweater or scarf means a lifetime of suffering for a beautiful, gentle sheep,” says Stodden. “My friends at PETA and I urge everyone to leave wool on the rack this winter!”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—has released exposés of dozens of shearing facilities in the past 16 months, revealing that sheep are punched, kicked, stomped on, and even killed by impatient wool industry workers. Fortunately, wool-free scarves, sweaters, and more are widely available from a variety of retailers—including H&M, Forever 21, and Express.
