PETA is pissed over controversial photographer Tyler Shields latest photo shoot. The shoot ,which is with former ‘OC’ star Mischa Barton, involves chunks of raw meat.
PETA released a statement to TooFab saying:
“This raw meat stuff is getting old and may not only hurt and kill cows, it may hurt Mischa, because so much meat is infected with salmonella, E. coli, and campylobacter that licking it is like licking a toilet. In addition to this being completely unoriginal, it’s completely callous—flesh from a tortured animal isn’t a joke, isn’t camp, and isn’t cool. Meat is full of blood, is produced with violence, and causes great suffering. So if that’s the look they were going for, too bad: They could have taken a leaf out of the playbooks of Pamela Anderson and Alyssa Milano, two PETA pinups who have shown off their natural beauty in outfits made of lettuce leaves for PETA’s “Let Vegetarianism Grow on You” campaign.”
Shields also released a statement to TooFab saying:
“I did not kill the cow, I just bought the meat. If they feel like I should be using lettuce instead of meat, I will see if I can work that into something. I don’t attack them for being non-meat eaters so I hope they can respect my choice as a human to eat it.”
I’m just not sure what’s more disgusting, the raw meat on the face and in the mouth, or Mischa’s teeth….
