PETA, phones and Pamela Anderson

Pamela_furWe knew there was a link between PETA and tofu, but PETA and China Telecom? Apparently so, according to this story, and there’s some Pamela Anderson thrown into the mix, too. The actress (not sure that’s an accurate description) appears topless, but with her back to the camera, on 70,000 phone cards from the government-owned telephone company, telling the Chinese to give fur the “cold shoulder.” The image is a scaled-back version of an earlier PETA ad starring Anderson which appeared on bus shelters in China and had to be altered three times before it passed muster with government censors.
