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 youÂ don’tÂ remember, let me refresh your memory:
Well, someone has done something about it- coming back with an ad with a 1-2 punch!
Enter in ManiK Magazine: (to view the ad, click here)
New York, NY, 11/06/2009: ManiK Magazine released their direct response today to PETAâ€™s (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) continuous abuse of publicly humiliating advertising campaigns that make the plus-size community the â€œpunch lineâ€ in efforts to promote vegetarianism as opposed to eating meat.
Appalled by PETAâ€™s advertising campaigns that push for the ethical treatment of animals at the plus-size communityâ€™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
â€œSAVE THE APOLOGY, LOSE THE SARCASM â€“ Iâ€™D RATHER GO NAKED TRIMMED IN FUR.
STARRING NEW ACTIVISTS â€“ PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ALL.
STANDING FOR SOMETHING WHILE FALLING FOR NOTHING TAKES GREAT STRENGTH BUT YOU Â Â Â Â Â Â Â CAN BE BETTER AND DO BETTER.Â STOP INSULTING OTHERS TO PROMOTE YOUR AGENDA.Â GO Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â ETHICAL FOR ALL!â€
Manik Magazine founder, Selina Weekes, was outraged at PETAâ€™s billboard posted in August 2009 in Jacksonville, Florida, that suggests overweight people are synonymous with whales and should lose the â€œblubber.â€Â 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.
