Hayden And Her BF Protest Killing Dolphins In Japan

| Filed under: Hayden PanettiereLove Line


Hayden Panettiere and her clueless looking boxer boyfriend Wladimir Klotschko were spotted protesting the annual dolphin hunt in the Japanese fishing town of Taiji.

Apparently their presence along with other environmental activists wasn't well-received in the village and they were rejected for a meeting with the mayor.

Better luck next time! We don't agree with it at all, but the residents consider the dolphin hunt "a proud legacy," and it's bound to be difficult to break!

    Her "clueless looking boxer boyfriend" holds a PhD.

  2. 2

    I think this is great! in "The Cove" (remember: just won Oscar for best documentary) it shows Hayden back then trying to make a difference in Taiji and getting thrown out of Japan. Good for her.

  3. 3

    The Japanese will eat anything that's living, I'm surprised cannibalism isn't thriving over there! Since they have no sense of compassion in their souls. Disgusting.

  4. 4

    cute he is doing that with her…killing of seals and dolphins all wrong. perez seriously, you need your ass kicked.

  5. 5

    good for her. if we had the money we would be right there with her!

  6. 6

    His name is KLITSCHKO you stupid American ignorant!

  7. 7

    Mind your own business, culturally speaking, my dears. Don't we have enough bad things going on our own USA to protest. See you in Mexico and Spain at the bullfights, you dumb chick.

  8. 8

    Klitchko has a Ph.D and speaks 4 languages. I'm clueless just trying to imagine that those two have anything in common.

  9. 9

    She is orange. It's scary. Why can't people look in the mirror before they leave home. Put the self-tanner/bronzer down, please.

  10. 10

    Your jealousy is beyond me Perez. I think they look cute together, and theyre together on this. Shes actually featured in "The Cove," a documentary on brutal dolphins and whale killing. Good luck to them!!

  11. 11

    so she doesn't approve of killing dolphins, but she approve's of skinning annimals to make her 'fashionable' boots? give me a break hayden hypocrite!

  12. 12

    her boyfriend is wayy too old for her!

  13. 13

    What you gon' do with all that ass?
    All that ass inside them jeans?

  14. 14

    I would think they would be cute…if Wladimir didn't look like a pedophile. He's so gross.

  15. 15

    It's like the seal hunt in Canada. People need to get a life and worry about their own business. The fisherman didn't show up on the set of Heroes this season and protest the cast making our eyes bleed throughout the awful final season did they? Take a hike Hayden, and Drago.

  16. 16

    actually if you watch the Cove, which is the best documentary I have had the priveledge of watching, you would see that the great majority of Japanese have no idea that this is even taking place, much less that they are being sold dolphin meat (which is highly toxic) labelled as whale meat in their grocery stores. There is no proud legacy here - simply a group of men trying to profit off of the international dolphin industry by trapping and selling those animals that are deemed attractive enough to be kept in aquariums, and brutally slaughtering those that arent.

  17. 17

    Perez, what she is doing is great, Ive never seen you in an Oscar winning movie. The people of the town only like the money they get from killing Dolphins, go anywhere else in Japan and they have NO IDEA it happening. The meat is poison and soon they WILL win the fight! you just wait! If I had the money Id be there too!

  18. 18

    Good job Hayden!!!

  19. 19

    Maybe you should actually watch The Cove before you start blabbing about the dolphin slaughter. Most of the Japanese people have no idea this is even happening! Its the few that consider dolphin slaughter "pest control" that are doing this.

  20. 20

    Awesome.Good for her!

  21. 21

    I'm all for protesting this, its cruel and just plain wrong. Hayden, wanna come up here to Northern Canada once you're done and help me protest the clubbing of baby seals?

  22. 22

    Isn't it "Vladimir"? Not "Wladimir"?

  23. 23

    I still can't shake this documentary. With these dolphins, they literally slaughter them in their own environment. These are mammals as they breathe air- not fish ^^ Dolphins were ranked as the smartest creatures in the world and they love humans too. It breaks my heart that Taiji is doing this. Please sign the petition online to create awareness for this issue and watch "The Cove."

    Thanks for sharing Perez!

  24. 24

    Perez, inform yourself before you start blabbing your mouth. This is not a proud legacy of the Japanese people, most don't know this practice even occurs. And the slaughtering 100,000 dolphins a year for "pest control" can hardly be called hunting.

    Stick to celebrity gossip - especially if you have no idea what you are talking about

  25. 25

    Re: its4ski – just because 'the cove' portrays the dolphin killings one way doesn't mean it's the way it is. I'm guessing you have been hypnotized by Michael Moore's documentaries at one point in your life as well?

  26. 26

    Its ridiculous how big of a hypocrite she is…she protests the killing of dolphins…so she wears Uggs to get her point across??? What a moron!?!?!

  27. 27

    How is this any different than the Canadian Seal Hunt that you're so terribly opposed to? Aren't you and Peta hocking t-shirts that plea for the ban of the seal hunt? I don't know how you can be somewhat sympathetic to the Japanese township of Taiji, yet completely unsympathetic to the Maritimers whose livlihood and traditions depend on this practice.

    Anything to have your face on a billboard eh numbnuts?

  28. 28

    Re: rassss – its 23,000 per year. But even one is too many.

  29. 29

    Re: scottyk_9 – I'd love to hear how it really is…please, do enlighten us.

  30. 30

    This is her only redeeming quality, even though the idiot designed a leather bag for D&B. Why doesn't she stand up for any land animals, though?

  31. 31

    Re: you_dummy – lol…did you READ what he wrote prior to commenting? He said he does not agree with it at all. While I'm all for insulting Perez..you just made yourself look like the dummy;)

  32. 32

    Re: scottyk_9 – I'm guessing you haven't taken the time to educate yourself?

  33. 33

    Re: Dick Gozinya – At least she is doing something good, what the hell do you do asshole?

  34. 34

    Re: scottyk_9 – She has compassion, what is so wrong about defending animals? Piss of. Hope somebody hunts you down.

  35. 35

    If you think the dolphin killing is bad (which is really is)… Look into the whale "hunt" in the Faroe Islands…. I sailed in there the day it was happening, completely unknown to us this was going on…. They send out all of their fishing boats and herd an enitre pod of whales into the cove and proceed to harpoon them relentlessly and then drag them back to the pier where they lay them out side by side carve numbers into their heads, gut them and leave them there for the school children and locals to walk through, poke at etc. As far as we know they didn't even use the meat or any part of the animal in a ceremonial way, or even harvest for food. This is just a tradition and they do it for historical reasons…. I will never forget the blood red waters that surrounded me as I sailed into the pier, nor will I forget the senseless slaughter of an entire herd in the name of tradition.

  36. 36

    i say we gather a bunch of hello kitties and hack and burn the EFF out of them.

  37. 37

    Re: you_dummy – Because they're dependent on killing animals, you stupid fuck.

  38. 38

    she is INSPIRING!

  39. 39

    I for one agree with hayden on this one. It's disgusting how some "people" treat other species. The human race is the only species to hunt/kill another species into extinction!! All the poachers and hunters out there don't seem to realize that extinct means gone FOREVER! there are only 2000 tigers left in the wild, in the world. 2000! that is really really sad. Animals feel pain too people…i think it's a disgrace that we humans think we have the RIGHT to torture and kill an animal for profit and finally, as for animal testing/experiments for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes…i say let's use the scum pedophiles/rapists/murderers in prison and leave the animals alone. At least that way the scum can contribute something useful to society!

  40. 40

    WTF is wrong with her right eye on the first photo? she looks crazy

  41. 41

    Re: chaot1c – true.
    missed the "at"

    thought he did not agree with it all.
    But I still think his stint with Peta was for facetime. Shame!

  42. 42

    Re: VeronicaVolta
    your point?

  43. 43

    Re: VeronicaVolta – i totally agree!

  44. 44

    Somebody please tell her to stop wearing skinny jeans! They look HORRIBLE on her fat thighs!! Also her spray tans have gotten outta control.

  45. 45

    Re: you_dummy – You know, I REALLY hope someone or even a large animal hunts YOUR ass down. I'm not a vegetarian, so I'm a bit of a hypocrite, but I do not wear fur or leather and would neve rfkill animals to eat. You don't give a shit about anything but your own ass.

  46. 46

    Re: valentino2003 – really? that's all you comment about? who gives a flying FUCK about her "fat thighs" and the skinny jeans. INNOCENT animals are being slaughtered out there! Wake the FUCK UP and get your head out of your FAT ASS!

  47. 47

    Re: you_dummy – I will defer to you on that one - didn't see it.

  48. 48

    Is this little 'do-gooder' gonna replace the income lost from these poor folk if the dolphin industry stopped? I bet she didn't think that one through, the HollyWood Whore ! I don't see her ponying up her $ $ $.

  49. 49

    Re: VeronicaVolta – Actually, I am a cardiac surgeon with Doctors Without Borders. I split my time between Zimbabwe and Lesotho. I retired from practice at an early age to help those less fortunate than I. I live in a hut. Thanks for asking. And you?

  50. 50

    Re: VeronicaVolta – I have many gorgeous women hunting me down on a daily basis……

  51. 51

    Re: scottyk_9

    Nobody cares about your moronic and arrogant comments. Have you even watched The Cove? I'm guessing you have not. If you have and you still feel that way, I feel sorry for you. And everyone who knows you. Actually could you just stop breathing now and not waste precious oxygen? Anyone who has watched the movie will get the pun.

  52. 52

    Dolphins are incredibly delicious. Tastes like chicken. YUM!!

  53. 53

    Re: Be-Atch – wow…there's an especially hot place in hell waiting for you. There is no amount of money on earth worth torturing and massacring these beautiful animals. Perhaps if you bothered to educate yourself on the subject, you might have an opinion that actually matters.

  54. 54

    Good for her.
    The dolphin slaughter must stop, it's inhumane and unsustainable.
    People in Japan will eat anything, it's sad.

  55. 55

    [re=4880792]Re: Segel

  56. 56

    These few Japanese cowards are humiliating all Japanese with their terrible slaughter. They are making the Japanese look like cowards.

    This isn't about tradition. It's about a few scumbags making a wad of cash!

  57. 57

    Just wondering. What did Hayden do to you. You perfect human being. The guy who does aBsolutely no wrong?

  58. 58

    Re: valentino2003 – yeah, Hayden's imaginary fat thighs are the real issue here. You tool.

  59. 59

    I LOVE how she is wearing leather boots! LMAO

  60. 60

    Nice leather boots. Just remember; an animal had to die for them too, even if it wasn't a dolphin.

  61. 61

    She's got daddy issues… hehe

  62. 62

    That Country is pathetic and disgusting… Google this sick hunt and you will be crying for a week… Pathetic disgrace for a nation…

  63. 63

    she "protests the killing of dolphins"

    yet was / is the spokesmodel for Coach leather handbags

    this twat is fuckin' STUPID.

  64. 64


  65. 65

    This is so stupid, they eat dolphins in japan and use them for medicine just like we eat cows and pigs in America.

    People need to get over the fact that people EAT ANIMALS. Just like in Australia they eat kangaroos and in other places in the world they eat monkeys… its life.

    These people over there protesting would be like people from Israel coming to America and protesting being upset that we kill and eat pigs.

    It's no wonder that people the world over think Americans are stupid, this is a perfect example of just that.

  66. 66

    killing of any animal is wrong. You can't say one animal is okay and the other not. I don't agree with it, but they're not protesting americans from killing and eating turkeys. That is also a "proud legacy".

    Yes I know I'm a Vegetarian Hippie, blah blah blah

  67. 67

    Re: Hollywood Marilyn – if you watched it - you are then aware that this is not something that the entire country can be blamed for. Almost none of the Japanese people are even aware this is happening.

  68. 68

    Re: VeronicaVolta
    how old are you? 12?
    It's not my ass I care about. It's the families whose livelihoods depend on this trade.

    So your not a vegetarian, but you won't kill animals to eat? explain. Are you eating roadkill?

  69. 69

    Re: ElfBoy – No actually, the Japanese people are NOT voluntarily eating dolphin. They have no idea this is even happening. Before you start spouting off at the mouth EDUCATE yourself about the topic at hand. Watch the movie…look it up online…but seriously if you dont know what you are talking about then shut the fuck up

  70. 70

    are you kidding me!? The "residents" consider it a legacy? Or the fisherman doing the slaughtering of thousands of dolphins for profit consider it a legacy!? Have you even watched the documentary? More people like her and her boyfriend should be taking a stand on this issue, among others, to get the word out and to stop this horrifying event from happening every year.

  71. 71

    They look like a circus freak show couple

  72. 72

    Re: ElfBoy – seriously??! have you watched this movie?! Obviously not or you would know how harmful it is to consume dolphins with such a high level of mercury, which has in fact proven to have severe damage on people. Do a little research buddy.

  73. 73

    Re: Lauren_MM – thank you *applauds*

  74. 74

    Re: rgzrgz – They don't know they are eating dolphin meat, it's labeled something else. Watch the movie, it's great.

  75. 75

    his why is she with a gay bf and since when does she care about animalsss

  76. 76

    Eek, a tad off topic, but they look so much like father and daughter. Not very appealing.

  77. 77

    Wow, some of these comments are mindblowing. Hayden may have a passion for Dolphins, but I do agree that she is the worst person to have representing an organization. As everyone has stated, the idea of wearing leather moccasins is ridiculous when you know people will be photographing you.
    Secondly, stop comparing this to the Seal Hunt in Canada. Many of you know nothing about the subject. Also, stop creating opinions based on one film, it's ignorant.

    I do agree that killing animals in a cruel and inhumane way is wrong. However, it is obvious that many cultures (i.e. Haiti- Voodoo) still see animal sacrafic as an important part of their faith…will we be protesting that as well?

    Education is the key to stopping these things, but also consumerism needs to be addressed. Many items you don't even know about contain animal products…like JELL-O for instance. Be a educated consumer and don't let one person fight a cause that you seem so passionate about…get off your fat ass and make a change.

  78. 78

    Two idiot Hollywood libitards. Typical leftist morons.

  79. 79

    What an akward looking couple… wonder if they'll ever last

  80. 80

    ewww, shes gorgeous, and he is crazyy ungly! wtf?

  81. 81

    anyone notice how she's wearing sheep skin boots? doesn't seem to mind that other animals are dying…

  82. 82

    GO HAYDEN! Seriously, make me proud. Stupid fishermen. Stupid, stupid, stupid fisherman. How dare you destroy such beautiful creatures. Screw you!

  83. 83

    And, as much as I mostly dislike Perez, WHY ARE YOU ALL HATING ON HIM FOR THIS? There is no jealousy in this post. When he says "Sad." he means sad that the japanese won't break the dolphin hunt.

  84. 84

    is flipper from japan?

  85. 85

    does no one else think she is a giant hypocrite?

    She is always at these animal rights things yet she plugs for Neutrogena..who are owned by Loreal.

  86. utana says – reply to this


    whatdafuckk we dont fucking kill dolphins. some people kill whales, which i think is a big waste cuz no one eats them anyways, but fucking dolphins? yeah, we dont kill them.

  87. utana says – reply to this


    Re: Laroccakiddd – shut uppp we have souls. most people dont even no some fishermen kill *whales* not dolphins though. even if they did kill dolphins and whales, no one eats them. its the fishermen's problems. not the whole country. stop being racist towards japanese. or asians.

  88. utana says – reply to this


    Re: Hollywood Marilyn – THAT COUNTRY? screw you. shut the FUCK up because you don't know anything. so its ok for americans to kill turkeys for thanksgiving? so its ok for the who to kill the what? yeah it is. but people just like to be hypocrites toward japanese because it easier for them. ok its more like THAT FISHERMAN. not THAT COUNTRY. so please, shut up and get a better un racist opinion.

  89. 89

    Nice leather boots. What, no love for the poor cows? Typical. Either go all in or stay out.

  90. 90

    perez you need to education yourself , i am like 8 years younger than you and i even know why she is there . Watch the cove , its amazing . i have a great amount of respect for her , shes putting herself in so much danger even being there .

  91. 91

    it hurts me to know this is going on!

  92. 92

    The dolphin hunt is absolutely brutal–schools of adults and babies are hacked to pieces while still alive, squealing in terror. And yes, I know other animals are killed in horrible ways too, but this doesn't make the dolphin hunt any less inhumane. It's impossible to stop all brutality, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to stop some at least.

  93. 93

    What about all the other animals everyone else in the world are brutally murdering? Why not go and screw up their tradition, too?

    Besides, it's not like all of Japan is killing the dolphins; just a small town.

    And though dolphins may be smart and friendly, some do bully and rape one another so they're not all that great.

    Sheesh. People need to broaden their outlook on things.

  94. 94

    Stupid biatch if u can respect the culture of others get the fuck of that country!..save ur biatch whore somewhere..Its in there culture nackle head of a whore..

  95. 95

    Good thing that she already raised enough awareness for this barbaric ritual for others to take notice. Now if someone could do the same for Denmark's barbaric slaughter of whales that they're passing off as "cultural" event…

  96. 96

    Perez considers the donut hunt "a proud legacy," and it's bound to be difficult to break!

  97. 97

    They should have stayed home and protested the evil food practices in this country

  98. 98

    Those Japanese murderers need to get a clue.

  99. 99

    someone using their celeb status for good. well done. you have so many people behind you hayden, and thank you.

  100. 100

    Re: hawtmomma – seriously..no skinny jeans with fat thighs..sheesh…
