Pam Anderson Slams Janet's Fur Fashion

Janet Jackson is the new face of fur fashion house Blackglama -- and Pamela Anderson definitely isn't happy about it.

Janet Jackson Fur - Blackgama
Janet came under fire by PETA shortly after an ad of her decked out in a mink coat, and now, the former "Baywatch" babe is blasting her too -- telling OUT "
It's disappointing. She has spoken out against fur before. I don't know why some people stop listening to their heart. I guess some people get greedy, but it's sad."

Other famous faces of the company include Cindy Crawford, Elizabeth Hurley, Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bundchen and Diana Ross.

Question is ...

D.I.S.G.U.S.T.I.N.G. What's wrong with you people? Don't you really know what kind of animal cruelty is fur industry? Or you just don't care? Please, go and see PETA's videos about fur industry. It's awful. Human beings do NOT need a fur to survive. It's unnecessary and very heartless to put innocent animals to suffer for your "beauty".

In this day, there are plenty of faux and synthetic material that can be used in place of fur. We do not have to resort to barbaric practices. Fur is cruel. I did believe Janet had higher regard for animals. I never pegged her to be another Kelis. But people never stop to amaze. It definitely was a decision based on money. It's really sad to see people sell themselves for material items. It is disappointing and even if you could careless you know in your heart it is wrong.

People relax.. it's not your choice nor is it your opinion to make others believe in what you do, if she wants to wear FUR or NOT it really isn't any one's business!

Fur trade was from at least 300 years ago, so wtf???

If that's the case then no one should be allowed to eat any kinds of meats, poultry or fish they are also being killed to feed us!

Who the HELL is Pam Anderson to talk about GREED! Puleeze, GET OVER YOURSELF Pam!

I have Finnlady, but again, those are your views but have you seen how animals are killed to be the food set on every one's table?

Double standards I guess. Then world should STOP wearing FURS and we should all be VEGAN!

Sorry we can't agree on this but people need to respect other's views and opinions. What one wears or chooses to do is their prerogative.

Yes, and that's why we all should be vegan! It's not only a fur industry, it's all industries that make animals to suffer and animals cannot live like they would naturally live! Sorry, but I don't respect a view that supports animals' suffering. I don't really understand your point that we should not be against fur industry, because there are also other industries that make animals suffer..?

Finnlady do not get me WRONG, I would'nt condone anyone hurting an animal, but truth is that half these PETA people are not practicing what they preach, especially these stupid A-HOLE celebrities, I rather have them be real in my face than to pretend they are someone who they are not;

7 Things You Didn't Know About PETA

1,876
diggs
digg1) According to government do***ents, PETA employees have killed more than 19,200 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens since 1998. This behavior continues despite PETA’s moralizing about the “unethical” treatment of animals by farmers, scientists, restaurant owners, circuses, hunters, fishermen, zookeepers, and countless other Americans. PETA puts to death over 90 percent of the animals it accepts from members of the public who expect the group to make a reasonable attempt to find them adoptive homes. PETA holds absolutely no open-adoption shelter hours at its Norfolk, VA headquarters, choosing instead to spend part of its $32 million annual income on a contract with a crematory service to periodically empty hundreds of animal bodies from its large walk-in freezer.

2) PETA president and co-founder Ingrid Newkirk has described her group’s overall goal as “total animal liberation.” This means the complete abolition of meat, milk, cheese, eggs, honey, zoos, aquariums, circuses, wool, leather, fur, silk, hunting, fishing, and pet ownership. In a 2003 profile of Newkirk in The New Yorker, author Michael Specter wrote that Newkirk has had at least one seeing-eye dog taken away from its blind owner. PETA is also against all medical research that requires the use of animals, including research aimed at curing AIDS and cancer.

3) PETA has given tens of thousands of dollars to convicted arsonists and other violent criminals. This includes a 2001 donation of $1,500 to the North American Earth Liberation Front (ELF), an FBI-certified “domestic terrorist” group responsible for dozens of firebombs and death threats. During the 1990s, PETA paid $70,200 to Rodney Coronado, an Animal Liberation Front (ALF) serial arsonist convicted of burning down a Michigan State University research laboratory. In his sentencing memorandum, a federal prosecutor implicated PETA president Ingrid Newkirk in that crime. PETA vegetarian campaign coordinator Bruce Friedrich has also told an animal rights convention that “blowing stuff up and smashing windows” is “a great way to bring about animal liberation,” adding, “Hallelujah to the people who are willing to do it.”

4) PETA activists regularly target children as young as six years old with anti-meat and anti-milk propaganda, even waiting outside their schools to intercept them without notifying their parents. One piece of kid-targeted PETA literature tells small children: “Your Mommy Kills Animals!” PETA brags that its messages reach over 1.2 million minor children, including 30,000 kids between the ages of 6 and 12, all contacted by e-mail without parental supervision. One PETA vice president told the Fox News Channel’s audience: “Our campaigns are always geared towards children, and they always will be.”

5) PETA’s president has said that “even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we would be against it.” And PETA has repeatedly attacked research foundations like the March of Dimes, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the American Cancer Society, solely because they support animal-based research aimed at curing life-threatening diseases and birth defects. And PETA helped to start and manage a quasi-medical front group, the misnamed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, to attack medical research head-on.

6) PETA has compared Jewish victims of the Nazi Holocaust to farm animals and Jesus Christ to pigs. PETA’s religious campaigns include a website that claims—despite ample evidence to the contrary—that Jesus Christ was a vegetarian. PETA holds protests at houses of worship, even suing one church that tried to protect its members from Sunday-morning harassment. Its billboards taunt Christians with the message that hogs “died for their sins.” PETA insists, contrary to centuries of rabbinical teaching, that the Jewish ritual of kosher slaughter shouldn’t be allowed. And its infamous “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign crassly compared the Jewish victims of Nazi genocide to farm animals.

7) PETA frequently looks the other way when its celebrity spokespersons don’t practice what it preaches. As gossip bloggers and Hollywood journalists have noted, Pamela Anderson’s Dodge Viper (auctioned to benefit PETA) had a “luxurious leather interior”; Jenna Jameson was photographed fishing, slurping oysters, and wearing a leather jacket just weeks after launching an anti-leather campaign for PETA; Morrissey got an official “okay” from PETA after eating at a steakhouse; Dita von Teese has written about her love of furs and foie gras; Steve-O built a career out of abusing small animals on film; the officially “anti-fur” Eva Mendes often wears fur anyway; and Charlize Theron’s celebrated October 2007 Vogue cover shoot featured several suede garments. In 2008, “Baby Phat” designer Kimora Lee Simmons became a PETA spokesmodel despite working with fur and leather, after making a $20,000 donation to the animal rights group.

I feel that you should be able to wear a fur coat, if you want to. I have noticed that some of those Peta people eat meat. Do they know, that could be considered cruelty to animals too...LoL!!! As far as Pamela Anderson talking about others and their furs. She should first take care of her own life. You is a real peice to speak against others. Look at the men and your life first. How can you deal with a fur, if you can't take care of your own life...LOL!!! Me personally, I will wear a FUR COAT, if I want too!!!!!

Phyllis, you are a long-winded idiot! Those are all "pieces" of stories about PETA; half-facts and outright lies.

There is nothing wrong with protecting animals. I eat meat, but I don't see why animals should be treated inhumanely.

The Fur Trade is hideous, in that most of the animals are skinned alive, especially in China. Too expensive and time consuming to kill them first.

Go to hell Phyllis. I hope somebody skins you.

Grump, I don't see a logic in your writing. PETA is fighting for animals' rights and has done excellent job. Please, do not spread lies and half truths. The problem is that you don't care about animals' pain. Right? That's why you don't understand PETA's campaigns or advertisements. PETA is not a religious organization, it's organization to fight for animal rights for a better life.

I don't really understand why do you want to attack against PETA and people, who are against animal cruelty? Does it take something from you? Money? Why would you fight against organization that tries to help animals, who are not able to defend themselves against human beings? How does it make your life worse?
