PETA Ad Banned

NYC airports veto a racy PETA ad campaign featuring Pamela Anderson.

A bottle of Vermont maple syrup isn't the only thing not making it past airport security these days. PETA's newest ad campaign, Cruelty Doesn't Fly, featuring spokeswoman Pamela Anderson, was pulled from New York City's three airports today, which deemed the ad "too sexy." In the video, Anderson, dressed as the Halloween version of a transportation security authority official, strips a leather belt off fellow PETA spokesperson Steve-O, and tears a fur coat off a woman escorted by another PETA celeb, Andy Dick. The racy footage also features a nude couple walking through security unfettered. Airport personnel claim that the ad could confuse and offend children and younger passengers.
