PETA Uses Bea Arthur In New Ad

| Filed under: Icky Icky Poo

This is cringe-worthy!

PETA is using the image of deceased Golden Girl Bea Arthur in their anti-chicken cruelty ad.

The animal rights organization claims Bea left money to them in her will. If it's true, we hope they at least got her family's permission to use her for the campaign!

Thoughts???

    Makes me hungry for fried chicken! YUM YUM!



  2. 2

    That's just wrong



  3. 3

    PETA = violent, liberal loons. Now I'm going back to my pork chops



  4. 4

    Um, perez. Don't you endorse PETA?? Way to stick to your guns, asshole.



  5. 5

    That is disgusting!



  6. 6

    I think, We should have a big meat fest in front of the PETA HQ's. Steaks, Pork, Chicken….YUM!!!! and chuck the bones at the building



  7. 7

    If she felt strongly about it then I think the ad is almost like a tribute to her in an odd way..



  8. 8

    I'm with Blah blah blah… this is wrong. Even if Bea donated money to their cause, the wording is distasteful and inconsiderate to the family and the fans of Bea Arthur and to use her name like they way they did… they should be ashamed of themselves!



  9. 9

    She'd totally approve! Such a wonderful lady.



  10. 10

    She did leave funds to a range of organizations; whether she left funds to PETA or not, it would be a surprise (and very bad form) for PETA to use her image without express consent from her estate. Do I love the ad? No.
    =
    Thanks for the gift to homeless gay youth, Bea! The Ali Forney Center loves you.

    IS ANYONE REALLY SURPRISED BY PETA'S DISGUSTING AND INSENSITIVE WAYS OF PROTESTING? EX: NAKED PHOTOSHOPED WOMEN, THE KKK, THE MOCKING OF THE HOLOCAUST (COMPARING THE ANIMALS TO THE HOLOCAUST VICTIMS), VERBAL ABUSE AND HARASSMENT, PHYSICAL ABUSE, BOMBINGS, HYPOCRISY, ETC….I CAN GO ON! FUCK PETA AND ANYONE ASSOCIATED WITH THEM (UNLESS THEY ARE TRULY BLIND AND IGNORANT TO PETA'S WAYS, THEN THEY NEED TO START DOING SOME SERIOUS RESEARCH ON THEIR "LOVABLE" PETA). SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTER.



  12. 12

    I get the message but PETA are a bunch of heartless ASSHOLES!!!!!!



  13. 13

    this is why i don't like PETA.
    they do shit like this while throwing pies in designer's faces.
    yeah! that'll teach them!
    w/e.



  14. 14

    regardless of whether they are uses Bea Arthur or not….I think many people are missing the point of the ad…..these animals are being treated horrible….not only that but the way McDonald's is willing to sell us food that is not properly cleaned or handled is completely gross…..I love meat but I want meat that is cleaned and doesn't have feces still on it while it is being packaged!



  15. 15

    Loves it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  16. 16

    I'm no PETA fan, but this ad does make you stop and look at it. I'm sure they did get her family's permission to use the image.



  17. 17

    Kinda creepy.



  18. 18

    This ad seems a bit distasteful….



  19. 19

    Re: NowUrThinking – Hate to tell you, but all of the meat you are getting is not clean and covered in feces. And worse - pumped with hormones and steroids. Enjoy eating your flesh.



  20. 20

    This is some fucked up shit i loved that women….if she really wanted to be in that she woulda done it in her lifetime…fucken neo terrorist assholes



  21. 21

    PETA IS FUNNY THEY HAVE THE MOST CLEVER ADS OF ANY ORGANIZATION.



  22. 22

    I HAVE AN IDEA FOR A PETA AD: YOU HAVE A PICTURE WITH PEREZ HILTON AND A CHICKEN WITH A CAPTION THAT SAYS: "I WONT EAT COCK ANYMORE, ITS JUST WRONG"



  23. 23

    I 100% agree with PETA's messages, but rarely the way they spread them. I think this is distasteful and gimmicky- not to mention I think it takes the focus off the issue. Bea probably would have been proud to be a part of an add discouraging animal cruelty, but I think she'd rather the focus be on the issue at hand, than herself.



  24. 24

    You Bitches suck clit!!
    Bea was a staunch advocate of PETA and her son gave the permission for it!!
    Now go suck ur McNuggett



  25. 25

    if she was passionate about animals when she was alive then is still paaionate in after live and besides I think Bea is laughing from above!!!!



  26. 26

    It's tacky, but Bea most likely did give them the okay to do something with her image after she died- she knew how they were, I'm saying she would probably be okay with it- after all, what does she care now?



  27. 27

    Fuck those PETA motherfuckers, seriously. This is so tasteless and mean-spirited, to use her image to promote their own fucked up agenda.

    I hate PETA, I hate extremists who are associated with PETA, they can all go fuck themselves while I decide to eat twice as much animal flesh as I normally do.



  28. 28

    Re: emmacatherine – actually for your information i eat meat that is grass fed, comes from local farmers, and where the animals are treated with respect….if you would like to hate on anyone hate on the CEOs of slaughterhouses and food companies who are knowingly giving us food that would not pass inspection had they not had someone in Washington making laws like the VEGGIES LAWS, which prohibit any American citizen from questioning where they get their food from or how their food is prepared!



  29. 29

    Re: LilSar – [re=4956476] i completely agree!



  30. 30

    PETA is lunacy. They were left all this money in Bea Arthur's will, and what do they use it for? To actually help animals? To run shelters? To promote adoption? To assist rescue? No…they use it "to pressure McDonald's." OOOH. Way to help those animals out there. Peta is a joke. petakillsanimals.com (Which is not run by big business, blah blah…that's just more PETA propaganda.)



  31. 31

    Awww shit. I just had a chicken pot pie for dinner.



  32. 32

    PETA is a scary organization………its not helping its hateful



  33. 33

    Bea would be rolling in her grave for this advertisement!! This is using an image without permission, find someone who is still alive.
    And for this to work, chicken nuggets in McDonalds would have to be made out of chicken. But the add worked in one day,after seeing it i went to McDonalds for a chicken sandwhich!! Hey, i'm all for saving animals, but i love things with chicken in them!!



  34. 34

    wow thats pretty tasteless



  35. 35

    I LOVE PETA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they do more good then bad and know how to get attention..good and bad:P



  36. 36

    Here we go again, Perez's weekly 'PETA bashing' email and all the morons will post messages about how much PETA sucks, etc, etc, when they don't know a goddamn thing about PETA or what they do (other than what Perez says…). You people are so fucking predictable!!!

    Why would PETA 'claim' to have received money from Bea Arthur's will?? Why lie about that?? And do you really think they'd use her image without consulting the family???

    Your all sheep who just lap up the shit that Perez feeds to you with a big ol' spoon.



  37. 37

    I think this is great!!!! I hope they do the same with Bob Barker after he finally croaks.

    But please, PIGS PIGS PIGS. They endure such horrific cruelty!!!

    I am not a fan of PETA.

  38. @v@ says – reply to this


    38

    Peta continues to redefine the false bottom of the slippery slope. No money from me anymore. This is opportunisticallly tacky. I'm going to redirect it to animal shelters.



  39. 39

    I WANT SOME FRIED CHICKEN PLEASE. YUM YUM MORE FOR US. AND I WORK OUT ALL THE TIME SO I AM NOT FaT!!!!!



  40. 40

    She's fuckin' dead and helping a good cause. STFU assholes!!!



  41. 41

    Re: vincenotvance
    You're an Ass!!! Hey…How about you eat your own ASS!!!



  42. 42

    Re: Mandeline28
    Oh by the way…You're an IDIOT!!!



  43. 43

    amazing



  44. 44

    Right, Pig Face, ’cause you know all about using others' pics without permission (or compensation).



  45. 45

    She was a big supporter of PETA, so I don't see anything wrong with using her picture. The wording is horrible though. Saying it's enough to make her roll over in her grave is just wrong.



  46. 46

    Bea Arthur was an active animal rights activist and would be proud to be part of such a moving campaign. I think that PETA is honoring her with their ad.



  47. 47

    The ad is distasteful and disrespectful. If Bea DID leave money to them, they should've just taken it and used it to save animals, not print offensive ads. Bea, you are a goddess. PETA, you can suck it.



  48. 48

    Re: vincenotvance – Yeah, it's tasteless okay - go eat some more animal carcass and die of a heart attack.



  49. 49

    PETA…People Eating Tasty Animals. Well, I'm off to KFC, yum.



  50. 50

    She was a huge supporter of PETA during her life, so I doubt she or her family would take issue with immortalizing that support.



  51. 51

    First…..I am a TRUE FAN of the Golden Girls!! They rock….RIP For eva Bea!!



  52. 52

    Loved bea. This is poor taste



  53. 53

    Re: pusspuss – "all the morons will post messages about how much PETA sucks" you think THIS is the only thing they base their opinions on? It's quite easy NOT to agree with PETA by doing some research on how they spread their beliefs. PETA acts like a bunch of children from time to time (examples are to be found in other posts on here) which can make it difficult to take PETA and what they stand for seriously. Why use Bea now? Why not have asked her while she was still alive? Because PETA is, apparently, only able to get a message across by shocking people. There are dozens of animal welfare organisations out there who are able to reach people without smearing blood on someone's pavement, PETA needs to clean up their act.



  54. 54

    The funny thing is,is that Bea was petrified of chickens! Get it PETrified. No she really was though.



  55. 55

    I can't believe they'd put a wonderful actress and woman on such a tacky ad



  56. 56

    I LOVE PETA, THEY CAN DO NO WRONG. SO WHAT THEY USED BEA I"M SURE SHE WOULDN"T MIND A BIT. PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A REASON TO ATTACK PETA FOR SOMETHING, MAKES NO SENSE REALLY THEY ARE HERE ONLY TO PROTECT THE ANIMALS, WHAT IS THE CRIME IN THAT? SOMEONE NEEDS TO SPEAK FOR THEM.



  57. 57

    I completely support PETA. This is what it has to come to now, it really is the only way PETA can get people to pay attention and show how sick animal cruelty is and how it constantly occurs. Animal cruelty is disgusting, and it you support animal cruelty or are guilty of animal cruelty, you are the scum of the earth in my book. Obviously people are hurting these innocent defenseless animals because they know it most likely won't fight back. Grow some balls.
