UNITED STATES: Longtime PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) spokesperson Pamela Anderson offers ham-hock ravioli, lamb chops, lobster tails, and Foie Gras at a restaurant she has business interest in.

The nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom has asked Pamela Anderson to donate all profits from her partnership in Hollywood’s Blacksteel restaurant to the American Liver Foundation. The Center for Freedom is a nonprofit coalition supported by restaurants, food companies, and consumers, working together to promote personal responsibility and protect consumer choices.

Anderson’s being a very visible PETA spokesperson has not kept her from earning a second income with menu items that include meat--and she continues to treat her Hepatitis C despite PETA’s opposition to the animal-based research that might lead to a cure, a news release points out. Anderson has also appeared on behalf of the American Liver Foundation, which does its research testing on animals.

“It’s outrageous for Pam Anderson to serve lobster and lamb chops at her restaurant while publicly campaigning against the so-called evils of chicken sandwiches,” said David Martosko, Center for Consumer Freedom director of research, in a press release. “And it’s hypocritical for her to strip naked for PETA while making the most of her animal-tested hair dye, animal-tested breast implants, and animal-tested collagen injections. It’s one or the other, Pam. Even you can’t have your cake and eat it too.”

The irony, Foie Gras and the American Liver Foundation.
