Awwwjeez. Here we go. PETA’s all mad at Beyonce for wearing all kinds of leather for her Superbowl half-time get-up. Like she cares.
We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés, she’d probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully. Today’s fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.
Beyonce’s publicist (via Queen Bey herself, no doubt) isn’t happy with some photos being posted from the half-time show. Apparently, they are “unflattering”? You don’t say?
Beyonce’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure didn’t like any of those pictures and after a phone call with Buzzfeed, sent this email:
Thanks for my taking call. As discussed, there are some unflattering photos on your current feed that we are respectfully asking you to change. I am certain you will be able to find some better photos.
HAHAHAAAA! All that makes us want to do is look for every single photo of Beyonce that isn’t all that cute. I’m more interested in all of her nose jobs. Daaang, girl. Pretty soon you’ll be wearing a surgeon’s mask.
And cue The Illuminati gossip. (I’m a little scurrred.)
It features the one-time Baywatch blonde carved up into little portions in a butcher-style diagram and come with a caption that reads: ‘All animals have the same parts. Have a heart – go vegetarian.’
The ad won’t be shown in the famously liberal city of Montreal, though; PETA was denied a permit to publicly launch their latest campaign after officials got a sneak peek. A member of the city’s film and TV commission said, in an email to PETA, that “It is not so much controversial as it goes against all principles public organizations are fighting for in the everlasting battle of equality between men and women.”
While she snarked at the city’s decision via a formal statement (she called it “surprisingly puritanical”), PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews said “I think that city officials are confusing ‘sexy’ with ‘sexist.” Not so, according to city officials.
Montreal’s film commissioner Daniel Bissonnette was quick to point out that “we’re working for an organization where we’re getting reminded on a daily basis that we should work in a sexism-free environment and that equality between men and women and the image of women is very important.”
Bureaucracy or sanity? Righteousness or righteous self-promotion? Sincerity or hypocrisy?
