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”.

Food doesn’t always have to come from different types of carcasses.

And it doesn’t require subsistence on tofu. (Personally, I find tofu delicious, but it’s one of those vegetarian protein sources people either really love or really don’t.)
