Pamela Anderson's new PETA ad banned in Canada




Canada-born Pamela Anderson was banned in Montreal this week after showing up in town to debut her newest vegetarian ad campaign for PETA, but officials denied a permit for the event at the 11th hour, saying the new ad is sexist. We say it's more a crime against Photoshop, but that's the fakest thing we've seen since the Bush administration's reasoning for invading Iraq.

"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," the 43-year-old Anderson said in a statement to Us. "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."

Montreal officials said the public event for the ad "goes against all principles public organizations are fighting for in the everlasting battle of equality between men and women." The solution? Hold the event in a private restaurant instead of a public venue. We think it'd be better to just have a similar ad with a guy. If there was such a thing as a hot vegetarian guy, we mean.
