The controversial banner in English
A vegetarian advert featuring Pamela Anderson in a string bikini has been banned in Canada for being “sexist”. The former Baywatch star features in a poster for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) covered in butcher’s labels such as “rump”, “ribs” and “breast”.
The creators of the advert, which includes the slogan “All Animals Have The Same Parts”, had been seeking approval for it to be displayed in Montreal. But Canadian officials rejected the banner, telling the animal rights group in an email it went against the “battle of equality between men and women”. Anderson, who is a vegetarian and long-time Peta activist, hit out at the “puritanical” decision.
