Pam Anderson has taken it all off for PETA in the past, but this time she's getting censored... in Canada. Her latest campaign for the organization was deemed sexist by Canadian officials, and when she flew to Montreal yesterday to unveil it, she found out that they were refused a permit to place the ad in the city. Anderson, who was born in Canada, declared: "In a city that is known for it's 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."
PETA thinks officials confused "sexy" with "sexist"—but the ad does portray the star as a piece of meat. In it, she's wearing a bikini and her body is covered in what looks like a butcher's diagram (markings that distinguish her ribs, rump, etc). No word on where the ad will end up... would New Yorkers allow it?
The organization has used naked women to get their message across in the past—the Daily News has a gallery—but have never so clearly marked them as a piece of meat.
