Janet Jackson’s New Campaign Slammed by PETA

July 19th, 2010

A hairy situation….

Luxury mink company Blackglama has chosen Janet Jackson as the new face of their “What Becomes a Legend Most” ad campaign, and in turn, the PETA has chosen the singer as their latest target.

In her first photo shoot that shows off her newly cropped hair, Janet works face-framing fur and other all-black ensembles that incorporate mink. The singer joins a long list of fabulous legends—including Lena Horne and Diana Ross—who have participated in the campaign since its debut four years ago.

The PETA routinuely takes celebrities to task for wearing fur, so it was only a matter of time before they started throwing shade.  “You told me that you were always aggravated at photo shoots when stylists would try to throw fur on you and that you were even wary of wearing fake fur out of concern that it might actually be real or look real in photos and send the wrong message,” Dan Matthews, PETA Senior Vice President said in an open letter. “You were very straightforward and sensible about it. What happened?” Matthews even took it a step further and referenced Michael Jackson’s death: “I’ve admired your grace ‘Good Times’ to your family’s recent hard times. I sincerely hope that the events of recent years haven’t hardened your heart to the suffering of others.”

Another PETA spokesperson, Amanda Schinke, remarked: “It’s amazing what celebrities will do when their careers are on a downslide, but we didn’t think Janet was this desperate.”

Wow! From bringing up her to bashing her career, the PETA is acting pretty desperate themselves trying to pull out all the stops to support their cause!

Janet hasn’t responded to their lashing out. Her campaign will be featured in national and international print outlets and billboards starting in September.

Do you think the PETA Is out of line? Or should Janet pull out of the campaign?

After I saw the ad, I JUST knew those PETA b*stards would pull this sh*t! God, I hate those f*ckers soooo much!!! Alot of celebs have distanced themselves from them (and w/ good reason) since they love to ppl bash horrendously thinking that this helps their stupid a$$ cause. They’re f*cking freaks! I hope Janet just doesn’t pay them any mind and continues to wear fur just to p*ss them off. lol That’s what I’d do. At this point in her life, Janet doesn’t give a sh*t what anyone says about what she does. She’s said that recently so, I doubt this is fazing her but, they’re p*ssing me off. Sorry, about the swearing but, I just had to vent. They hate those ppl sooo much, and now they’re picking on Janet!!!

It’s amazing when you’re not on board with people, you have to bash them….that person is wrong! PETA makes me sick. They are a modern day lynch mob if you ask me! Back in the day, they condoned throwing of blood on people if they were wearing fur! They hold not merit with me. Just because you don’t agree doesn’t mean you have to go for the jugular. THEY MAKE ME SICK!

yes i do think peta was wrong for their statements. i would like to know where were they when BP took there time with the oil spill in the gulf i did not hear or see them speak out on that, which we know did hurt some of our sea animals. janet is a grown woman and if she wants to put on fur that is her business. peta needs to get over themselves.



professor Said on

PETA HAS MORE CAUSES THAN THE CLOTHES THEY WEAR.THEY WORRY MORE ABOUT FUR AND ANIMALS AND THE PEOPLE OF HAITI NEED A PLACE TO LIVE. THEIR COUNTRY WAS LEVEL BY AN EARTHQUAKE AND THEY ARE WORRYING ABOUT HER IN A COAT IN A
PICTURE. I AM ALL ABOUT SAVING ANIMALS BUT THESE PEOPLE TAKE THINGS TO FAR.IT IS A SHAME THAT THEY DO THINGS TO HURT PEOPLE
THAN HELP.IF THEY THINK THEY ARE RIGHT ALL THE TIME BUT SOME
TIME I FINE THEM VERY OFFENSIVE. IN THE LAST FEW YEARS I HAVE FOUND MYSELF SUPPORTING THEM LESS AND LESS. THEY CAUSE
MORE PROBLEMS THAN THEY SOLVE.



love Said on

He was so wrong for that..if u dont know a person and at times, even if u do.. dont throw out an incredibly low blow and talk about a deceased family member. He needs to slow his role on that one. Tell them to stop wearing fur and leave it at that



Christine ravenell Said on

Janet and anybody else can wear what they want, she’s not asking anybody 2 buy anything or do anything 4 her. Animals are here 2 eat and wear. Does PETA get mad when ppl wear leather, silk or feathers? What about when pp wear foot wear made of animals and etc? PETA needs 2 find something else 2 talk about. I hope Janet doesn’t comment at all, don’t respond 2 such stupidity.



puleeze Said on

PETA needs to get a life… if they really think that Janet Jackson’s career is going downhill, guess what? they gave her some free publicity with their crap talk.
