Amanda Beard Gets Naked in China For PETA's Fur Campaign


In addition to "nude" Olympian appearances in a recent Powerade campaign, Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard got "naked" for PETA in support of the organization's Don't Wear Fur campaign. Apparently her public appearance at a news conference in Bejing was too much for Chinese officials to handle who shut her down, reportedly, for safety reasons. She then moved to another location an unveiled the ad to the usual swarm of photographers and gawkers.

Likely, China isn't so accepting of PETA's freedom of speech-enabled mode of operation given that, according to PETA, Chinese fur farms aren't the greatest places for a furry animal to find itself.

If PETA is going to use the patriotic theme they could at least hang the American flag correctly - the stars should be on the left when hung that way.

About the "stars on the left" rule, I know, it's always been the rule, but it's always looked pretty stupid that way.

I don't care why it's deemed proper -- it looks backward!

You people missed the whole issue. It's not about the flag or nudity. Guess you never took care of a pet animal, So what would you care about the poor creatures at the fur farm. Cough up some dough for PETA instead of trying to comics.
