Jessica Simpson and the "Real Girls Eat Meat" T-shirt
Jessica Simpson was photographed last week at LAX wearing a "Real Girls Eat Meat" T-shirt. Some animal lovers are less than happy, especially the folks at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The Baltimore Sun's Mutts blog shares some details:
"For a gal who's best known for her less-than-stellar brains (Chicken of the Sea, anyone?) and her ability to proportionately fill out daisy dukes, I'm gonna go on record saying that if anyone had to wear a ridiculous shirt like this, I'm glad it was Jessica — as people are more likely to follow the opposite of her lead," a PETA blogger wrote. Maybe the meat-eaters of the world will be embarrassed to be categorized in the same field as Jessica Simpson."
Simpson family insiders told OK! Magazine that the slogan is a dig at boyfriend Tony Romo’s ex-girlfriend, country superstar Carrie Underwood -- who has twice been named "World’s Sexiest Vegetarian" by PETA.
The PETA blog also lists "the top five reasons that only stupid girls brag about eating meat."
1. Meat increases the risk of breast cancer.
2. Real girls don't support animal abuse.
3. The meat industry is destroying the Earth.
4. Meat will make you fat.
5. Eating meat steals food from starving kids.
