Pamela Anderson’s risqué new vegetarian campaign for PETA has been banned in Montreal for treating the actress like a piece of meat.
Canadian officials denied a permit for an event launching Anderson’s new animal-rights ad at the last minute on Thursday, claiming the ad is sexist.
In the ad, the buxom blond, 43, poses in a bikini with her body covered in marks suggestive of a butcher’s diagram. Parts of her body are labeled “rump,” “ribs,” “breast,” and so on.
The ad’s caption reads, “All Animals Have the Same Parts.”
“In a city that is known for its exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest over the suffering of cows and chickens,” Anderson said in a statement released to the Daily News. “In some parts of the world, women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas — is that next? I didn’t think that Canada would be so puritanical.”
