Gap and Zara Ban Angora Fur Following Outcry Over Cruelty to Bunnies

Following mounting pressure from EVERY HUMAN WITH A CONSCIENCE, Gap and Zara have joined several other retailers in (temporarily) banning products made with angora fur.

Uh-Oh, Katy Perry Is in Trouble with PETA Over ‘Roar’ Video

It’s probably best not to take PETA’s outrage too, too seriously (I mean, it’s not like they’re going to throw paint all over your decadent fur coat or anything), but a spokeswoman for the animal rights organization has criticized Katy Perry for exploiting exotic animals in her new video for the single “Roar.” » 9/15/13 4:30pm 9/15/13 4:30pm

PETA Loons: Eating Chicken Wings Will Give Your Baby a Small Penis

PETA is like the most boring drunk person at a barbeque. PETA will lean towards you and whisper in your ear, "Hey... did you know... that vegetables make you good at sex? Like, dangerously good." and then roll into a ditch to play with pine cones. 15 minutes later, forgetting that it had already heckled and upset you,… » 9/03/13 10:40am 9/03/13 10:40am

PETA Is a Holdout on ‘No Kill’ Shelters and It’s Pissing Everyone Off

PETA, the sanctimonious, paint-flinging organization that showed us its vegetable dicks and ruined Valentine’s Day is catching some flack for its reluctance to move to a “no kill” shelter model amid a groundswell of no-kill support from animal rights advocates. How can the same group that criticizes a child celebrity » 7/07/13 12:00pm 7/07/13 12:00pm

Peter Jackson Denies Cruelty Allegations, Says All Animals on Set Died …

Accuser Recants His Allegations of Underage Affair with Elmo

WELL, OKEY DOKEY, THEN. I mean, who knows what's true in this whole shitty puppetfuck, and whether or not any of it was any of our business (if the retraction is legit, then it most definitely wasn't). But the official story, at this point, is that Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash's accuser (who originally claimed the two… » 11/13/12 8:40pm 11/13/12 8:40pm

Wherein PETA Tries to Get Your Attention With Vegetarian Dick

Here's a horrifying (and probably NSFW) ad promoting veganism for dudes as a way to increase their sexual stamina, which works by turning their previously sad, shriveled flesh junk into massive, phallic produce.
