Perhaps it was worth hearing that terrible song, “Milkshake,” over and over again a few years ago. If only because it made the singer, Kelis, enough of a celebrity to draw the wrath of PETA. That’s right, PETA is once again trying to grab the headlines by attacking celebrities, but Kelis is one celebrity that has fought back.
In the statement on her MySpace page, she said, “I eat meat and in fact my mouth salivates as I type the word meat!” I can sympathize with her, each day I write about meat and lose a lot of good saliva in the process. She even says that she “…would eat pterodactyl if you found some and told me it was meaty and delicious.” I wholeheartedly agree. Get me some pterodactyl meat, pronto.
And that’s not even the best, she makes it personal, attacking founder Ingrid Newkirk. Kelis claims that Newkirk is insulin dependent and that insulin comes from pigs. PETA is supposed to be against any use of animals, so if this were true, it would make her incredibly hypocritical. But it certainly wouldn’t be the most outlandish thing PETA has done.
After telling the world she believes in the preservation of endangered animals (hooray), she makes her best point, telling PETA that there are much bigger things to worry about than animal rights. She tells them to “Find a worthwhile cause like the women being maimed in these Middle Eastern Countries. Or female circumcision. Or women’s rights here in America…”
So for fighting back, exposing PETA and loving meat the whole time, Kelis, you are a true Unvegan Hero.
