Animal rights protesters have launched a series of angry campaigns against A-list carnivores. They are shifting their focus from celebrities who wear fur to others who encourage the "exploitation" of animals by eating them. In its latest campaign, Peta – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which became infamous for dousing fur-wearers in red paint – has launched an attack on the singer Jessica Simpson.Did you catch that? She might have a right to wear (i.e. "say") what she wants? PETA's not sure about free speech though. Jeepers! They are sure that they have a right to tell you what you can and can't eat, however. Is it just me or are the leftists letting their facade slip lately? Everything from openly calling for the nationalization of the oil industry to controlling our diet.
Ms Simpson was singled out for ridicule after she was spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan "Real Girls Eat Meat", believed to be a light-hearted dig at her boyfriend Tony Romo's vegetarian ex-girlfriend, Carrie Underwood.
Alistair Currie, a spokesman for Peta, said: "Jessica Simpson might have a right to wear what she wants, but she doesn't have a right to eat what she wants – eating meat is about suffering and death.
Screw them. I'm having steak for dinner. Maybe veal.
