PETA Throws Down With Dustin Hoffman Over Luck Comments

Filed under: PETA

peta-responds-to-dustin-hoffman-comments-web.jpgDustin Hoffman, you've been one baaaaad man and PETA is coming for you!

On Wednesday, we told you how the actor (and show producer) felt about Luck being canceled too quickly.

It seems like he doesn't think THREE horse deaths is enough to pull the plug on a show, and PETA agrees.

In a letter to Hoffman, PETA strikes down his comments, caliing him "cold" and "out of touch."

PETA writes:

You are one actor, but twelve whistleblowers who worked on Luck contacted PETA, and they all made the same allegations: The horses being used were unfit, arthritic, drugged, and pushed beyond their capabilities. There is nothing accidental about this. Before the last horse died, we contacted you privately—no fanfare—and asked for your help in making conditions safer for the horses, but you ignored that overture and at least one other horse died just days later. That horse's blood is on your hands.

BURN!!!!

Alicia Silverstone Sends Letter To Putin, Asking For Vegan Diet For Pussy Riot

alicia-silver-pussy-riots-putin-letter-web.jpg

While we know her intentions were good, this may not be the right way for Alicia Silverstone to ask for tofu.

The actress has sent a letter to Russian president Vladimir Putin, asking that Pussy Riot's Maria Alekhina, a vegan, has access to a vegan diet.

The letter wants Putin to "assure" her about Alekhina's diet, and states the following:

I'm sure you can agree that everyone has the right to show compassion and refrain from hurting animals by being vegan.

Madonna supports the cause, Alicia supports their diet…

Same thing, right?

Letter From Ke$ha To Lady Gaga Faked, But Still True

Filed under: Sad SadLady GaGaKe$haAnimal CrueltyFur

kesha-lady-gaga-fur-fight-real.jpg

There is a letter going around the internet that is supposed to be from Ke$ha to Lady Gaga calling her out on wearing real fur.

This letter has been called "not legit" by Ke$ha's management team, saying she didn't write it, but that doesn't make it any less true.

Ke$ha LOOOOVES animals! She's the Humane Society's Global Ambassador!

The hoax (but still true) letter said:

"It upsets me to see you, a role model to many, especially those who are fashion forward would openly endorse such a cruel and inhumane practice. Animals are skinned and tortured for hours in order to make the fur that you, and other individuals of the upper class, lavishing wear around proudly."

The letter then begs Gaga to change her ways, saying:

"I can not begin to explain the amount of torture, harm and cruelty that is used when handling these animals that are ultimately killed for your pleasure. I hope this note has struck a chord with you and you strongly reconsider your decision to wear fur again."

Again, we know the letter is fake but everything it says still rings true.

Wearing fur is wrong and cruel and should not be done by ANYONE.

Especially someone others might consider a role model.

TAKE OFF THE FUR!
