PETA freaks out over Jessica Simpson’s ‘meat’ t-shirt

June 19, 2008

Jessica Simpson has been blasted by animals rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) after wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan ‘Real Girls Eat Meat’.

The blonde beauty – who famously questioned why tuna was nicknamed ‘chicken of the sea’ on her reality TV show Newlyweds – has come under fire from the animal rights group, who have urged her to become a vegetarian to increase her brain power.

A spokesperson for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said: “Jessica Simpson’s meaty wardrobe malfunction makes us thankful that no one is looking to her for food advice. Chicken of the sea anyone? The woman who thought that Buffalo ‘Wings’ came from buffalos would benefit from some good veggie brain food.”

However, it has been claimed Jessica wore the T-shirt to poke fun at her boyfriend Tony Romo’s ex-girlfriend Carrie Underwood, who has twice been named the World’s Sexiest Vegetarian by PETA.

British outraged by kangaroo burgers

A British pub has taken kangaroo off its menu after pressure from a radical vegetarian group backed by Sir Paul McCartney.

The Pig and Fiddle in Bath stopped serving roo burgers after being lobbied by Vegetarians International Voice for Animals! (Viva!), which campaigned against the recent roo cull in Canberra.

Viva! has now set its sights on persuading Aussie-themed pubs in the UK to stop serving kangaroo meat and it has already convinced some butchers to stop stocking the product.

British supermarkets Sainsbury’s and Tesco stopped selling roo in the late 1990s after Viva! organised protests and boycotts.

Viva! campaigns manager Justin Kerswell said commercial killing of kangaroos could lead to the national emblem being placed on the endangered list.
