Founded in 1980, Peta claims it is dedicated to establishing and defending the rights of all animals. Peta operates under the simple principle that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment.
The group has been the focus of criticism from inside and outside the animal rights movement. There has also been criticism from feminists within the movement about the use of scantily clad women in Peta’s anti-fur campaigns, and criticism in general that the group’s media stunts trivialize animal rights. Ingrid Newkirk (CEO of Peta) view is that PETA has a duty to be “press sluts.”
And celebrities love to flaunt it. The organization is known for its aggressive media campaigns, combined with a solid base of celebrity support—Pamela Anderson, Drew Barrymore, Alec Baldwin, John Gielgud, Bill Maher, Stella McCartney, and Alicia Silverstone have all appeared in PETA ads. Every week, Newkirk holds what The New Yorker calls a war council, with two dozen of her top strategists gathered round a square table in the PETA conference room, no suggestion considered too outrageous. Here are 30 hottest celebrities who posed naked to supported Peta (or so their PR managers claim)
