Pamela Anderson’s plans to unveil a new PETA ad campaign in Montreal were stopped short when the city decided deny a permit for the billboard at the last minute, claiming the ad is sexist, according to Us Weekly.
In the image, Anderson appears in a bikini with markings on her skin denoting sections— like “round” and “rump” — like a cow ready for the butcher.
“In a city that is known for its exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest over the suffering of cows and chickens,” Anderson said in a statement.
“In some parts of the world, women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas — is that next? I didn’t think that Canada would be so puritanical.”
