Remember that “Save the Whales” ad PETA unapologetically put out in an attempt to tell us fatties that by going vegan we will lose weight?
I KNOW YOU DO. If you don’t remember, let me refresh your memory:
Save the Whales ad from PETA
Well, someone has done something about it- coming back with an ad with a 1-2 punch!
Enter in ManiK Magazine:
New York, NY, 11/06/2009: ManiK Magazine released their direct response today to PETA’s (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) continuous abuse of publicly humiliating advertising campaigns that make the plus-size community the punch line in efforts to promote vegetarianism as opposed to eating meat.
Appalled by PETA’s advertising campaigns that push for the ethical treatment of animals at the plus-size community’s expense, ManiK kicks off their themed: INNOVATIVE ACTIVIST premiere issue scheduled for December with their Anti-PETA Ad of a plus-size vixen in an implied nude shot draped in fur that reads:
ANTI-PETA AD-MANIK MAGAZINE
SAVE THE APOLOGY, LOSE THE SARCASM I’D RATHER GO NAKED TRIMMED IN FUR.
STARRING NEW ACTIVISTS PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ALL.
STANDING FOR SOMETHING WHILE FALLING FOR NOTHING TAKES GREAT STRENGTH BUT YOU CAN BE BETTER AND DO BETTER. STOP INSULTING OTHERS TO PROMOTE YOUR AGENDA. GO ETHICAL FOR ALL!
Manik Magazine founder, Selina Weekes, was outraged at PETA’s billboard posted in August 2009 in Jacksonville, Florida, that suggests overweight people are synonymous with whales and should lose the blubber. Rather than be a silent advocate for the oppressed, Manik Magazine is asking readers to get involved by posting their Anti-PETA ad as a default picture on their social networking sites for one week, starting November 16-21, to show solidarity for their interactive campaign to stand up against ostracism and ridicule from organizations that subliminally degrade fuller figures.
