Joanna Krupa’s nude PETA ad worked

December 1st, 2009 // 226 Comments

Because they didn’t make it to actually save animals, PETA’s latest ad featuring Joanna Krupa has already managed to piss off the Catholic Church. Fox 411 reports:

“The fact is that cats and dogs are a lot safer in pet stores than they are in the hands of PETA employees,” Catholic League President Bill Donohue said in a statement. “Moreover, pet stores don’t rip off Christian iconography and engage in cheap irreligious claims.”
“PETA is a fraud,” Donohue continued. “It also has a long and disgraceful record of exploiting Christian and Jewish themes to hawk its ugly services. Those who support this organization sorely need a reality check. They also need a course in Ethics 101.”
Krupa issued a statement responding to the Catholic League, saying: “As a practicing Catholic, I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads. I’m doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of God’s creation.”

Of course, this is all just smoke and mirrors to cover up the real travesty here: Nipple airbrushing. Seriously, are you kidding me, PETA? Joanna Krupa basically has a Crucifix jutting out of her vulva, but even after Keeley Hazell, a nipple would be too much? Fuck this. I’m going outside to punt Pomeranians.

    irish ‘step’ dancing- there is no such thing.
    as a practising catholic, i agree that the church has been impicated in a lot of horrible things recently adnf frequently say a lot of things that sound ridiculously antiquated and unrealsitic, but this ad is such a load of bullshit. it is offensive to the catholic faith, it is semi-pornographic and it has absolutely nothing to do with its stated aim. peta are a load of shit

  3. As your Creator I must say that rescue dogs are like lepers…nobody wants them needs them or loves them…do what I do and buy purebreds…they are nicer to look at and with all the inbreeding they die quicker so you don’t have to keep spending money on food and vet bills…plus rescue dogs are ugly…oh and the only objection I have to the crucifix being used is that it’s covering the good stuff…am I right fellas?? lets see that snatch!! So sayeth your Lord

    Winged angels and crucifixes were never Christian symbols to begin with. Winged angels can be traced back to the Sumerians (A culture that was anything but Christian), and Je$u$ Chri$t was simply nailed to a common execution device of his day. Catholicism, on the other hand, is a modified version of Christianity that adopted a shit-load of Pagan influences, in order to ease heathens into the religion who were accustomed to worshipping more than one god; hence the ´saints´.

    In other words, who gives a fuck? =D

  6. stupid americans

    that has what to do with anything?
    both the wings and crucifix are clearly identifiable as catholic symbols now, so your point is completely irrelevant

    The only poor dumb defenseless animals I see are the moron models whose agents tell them to “pose naked for the kitties and puppies and Jesus.” In my eyes, posing naked under such a pretense makes you legally retarded.

  8. Olpol

    Not that I like PETA but – I like that a religious guy is telling someone ELSE to get a reality check. I think he should go back to talking to his big magical buddy in the sky.

    I mean FUCK!… OK they show Playboishly Photoshopped semi-nudness!… IGNORE IT FISH! PETA sucks!!!! And this is coming from a vegetarian (who is also atheist, but I’ll leave the Catholic side out of it for now)

    No. 22 (Mohammed) is Right! It PETA was anthing but a bunch of gutless wonders, they would have used Mohammed’s face, or a swords and crescent moons to cover her.

    Perfectly okay to insult Catholics, but don’t dare thinking about offending the world’s most perverted excuse for a religion/

  13. FoxxyAaisha23

    #34- Cool observation about the feathers-I actually had not paid that any mind

    I think the religious imagery was useless and seemed like a bit of an attention-whoring move on their part.

    Although I like animals as much as the next person I cannot really get behind the extremism that PETA preaches. The message, ideally would be to have a certain respect for living creatures and such, however they go overboard by demonizing anyone who does ANY little thing they disagree with.

  14. Heather

    Im 16 years old I’m a catholic but not a religious one at all I don’t believe in most of the thing in that religion but I complelety agree with the morals. People tend to not like catholics because they say it how it is they don’t spare feelings to make you feel better , and there not telling you it to make you feel like shot, there trying to save you from the evil in the world. Now their are ignorant people in the world who believe it their life and they can do why they want which is true you can do what you want god gave us that power with free will if you believe that but whether you do or not it doesn’t change the fact that there is right and wrong. This

  15. Christina

    I don’t agree with some of the stances PETA takes, but they still make good points some of the time, and this is one of those occassions. There is absolutely no reason to have a purebred dog. End of sentence. A mixed breed can do everything a purebreed can do and are usually just as cute. I’ve had nothing but mutts my entire life and they’ve all been amazing dogs.

    So to #18 and 31 (same person), you are truly an idiot and completely heartless. A purebreed is not a “better animal”. And quite frankly, I suggest you take a look at your local animal shelter, because they’re horribly underfunded, meaning that very few, if any, of your tax dollars are being used to care for these defenseless animals. Why on earth should they all be killed because their owners were too irresponsible to get them spayed/neutered or were so heartless as to abandon them? You are completely heartless and a disgusting individual.

    This ad doesn’t make any sense anyway, because it isn’t their anti-fur campaign. There is no reason to have her naked and covered with a cross other than to get attention. It’s disrespectful to Christians and shouldn’t have been done. It’s a poor ad making a very good statement about animal adoptions.

  16. Heather

    Picture is wrong because it’s using the crucifix which Jesus died on to save us all. Once again even if someone doesn’t believe this you can’t just go around doing whatever the fuck you want wrong… And it’s honestly hilarious that this women claims to be catholic because well the whole posing naked is a different issue but that fact that she says the animals are the most defenseless creatures when in reality it’s unborn babies who have literally no defense at all. Yeah it sounds cliché but it’s 100 % true and if some if you disagree.. Remeber ignorance is bliss an peoples selfish excuses for abortions are discusting if anyone would like to argue please go ahead…

  17. Heather

    And also one more thing for the arguments like” chritians are hypocrites with sexuality etc”.. It’s not the church and it’s belief it’s the individuals because they have the choice just like everyone. Everyone needs to stop making fucking excuses. I mean yeah I have done things that are wrong, really wrong and I know that, that’s what people need to step up and do instead of making their own rules of what right and wrong, because despite what religion you believe in or what religion you don’t believe in the morals of the church on things like drugs, sex, alcohol, abortion etc are correct no people are obviously not going to follow them but these morals are the morals people should base there lives on because these are the morals of good people.

  18. Heather

    And also for the people who tend to use the excuse that the catholic church is a hypocrite especially in thing invovling sexuality, this is completly false because the church does not go against own beleifs the individuals do. Whether you believe in this religion or that religion or none at all you can’t argue the fact that the morals, not the religion, but the morals of the catholic church are those of a good persons, and I fully believe everyone should live their life by these morals involving sex, drugs, alcohol, abortion etc. Also yes animals are living things so they should be cared for and not mistreated in any way, but human life is above all life in all aspects

  19. DCMikeRotch

    Considering PETA’s dismal failure at adopting out its dogs, those pictured dogs are probably all stuffed & mounted.

    I wouldn’t mind stuffing & mounting her*.

    *Note: In the completely non-taxidermy way. As in sexually. Reverse piledriver.

  20. Heather

    Are you directing that last statement at me. If you are could you explain it in terms a jr in highschool would understand

  21. Heather

    Nevermind I understand

  22. Heather

    Also people on here who are talking about priests and raping boys and shit, what does that have to with anything… It called evilness. It fucking common sense. Why do people act like every priest is a child molestir an that the church encourages or something. People from every religion rape it’s not like the fucking religion teaches it, it’s the individuals choice to do so. Such ignorant people in this world … So frustrating…

  24. This ad is such a load of bullshit.

  25. 1moreidiotintheworld

    She’s a practicing catholic???? She’s a practicing dumbfuck – plain and simple….. maybe that’s why she was appealing as a spokesperson for some completely assinine fanatical organization like PETA. The ACLU should be calling her soon to do their ads. I wonder if 95.8% of the dogs pictured in that ad know that they are the walking dead……..

  26. Heather

    Plus the fact that I just realized not only is there a cross ok pretty sure she is in a church

  27. chris

    Is this even a picture of her. It looks like a cartoon

  28. rowlph

    how fuckin gay…i’m gonna go kill a litter of puppies now…

  29. I am offended by the use of the cross on her naked body. It is a symbol of my faith and should not be disrespected. Like a poster said before they should have just stuck with the wings and the halo. Now people are not talking about getting your new best friend at the shelter, but the controversy of the ad

  30. Ego

    WTF no cats in the ad? That’s descrimination.

  31. flaky

    I found a HOTTEST interracial club ===”MixedConnect C om”===for black Women and white Men, or black Men and white Women, to interact with each other. Interracial is not a problem here, but a great merit to cherish!

  32. mamamiasweetpeaches

    My 11 year old sends money to the ASPCA. Apparently when you do this the word sort of leaks out to other organizations and they start sending you letters asking for donations. PETA is one of the ones who sends her letters. I’ve explained to her that PETA are crazy people who would shoot you in the face to stop you from eating a hamburger and who exploit naked women to try to cheaply grab your attention. So while Im FOR helping the animals I am totally against any organization that trys to tell me what to eat and wear and trys to get my attention by being explotive or insulting.

  33. FACE

    PETA is the most ridiculous organization in the US

  34. Josh

    So, PETA members need a reality check, but people who believe an invisible man in the sky made everything are A-OK!

  35. Rosie

    Stupid ad. Heather may or may not be 16 but she is ignorant. On and on. ………

  36. missywissy

    wow, PETA is becoming like ACLU. They stood for something decent at first, but they take things too far and end up losing the origional cause and supporters.

    Joanna Krupp is a nipple away from becoming a joke. She’s obviously milking this “fame thing” while she can.

  37. OMG! What a fantastic image. And yes, I support PETA 100%.

  38. Heather

    Rosie are you saying I’m ignorant or that playboy with the cross…chris r hope your being sarcastic… If not I feel bad for you it’s ridiculous how puppies and dogs and cats and shit get more attention then human life. Human life is sacred. Dogs lives are not, they should be respects and not mistreated, but never should there lives become more of an important issue then human life,.

  39. chopper

    it’s horse shit.. the Jewish & Catholic religions are easy marks today (as witnessed by these posts)..why dont they really grow a set & use some Muslim imagery ? no of course not ..

    fuckin gutless cunts ..peta & 3/4 of the ass hats here.

  40. Hank

    I’m a Catholic and let me say that most of us think Bill Donohue is a cunt. He, like most ‘Catholics’ that have an active role in American politics isn’t really Catholic… They use the teachings they find convenient and forget the rest.
    As for Joanna, this is blasphemy for a Catholic. The difference is that the Sistine Chapel is art, this is cheap hawkishness.
    Also, PETA may stand for a good things but they are in it for the money- and, like Randal(I) pointed out, their practices are despicable.

  41. Heather

    That pretty much sums it all up

  42. Jimbo

    I like the adoption message, but I hate PETA. I bet Linda McCartney plucked those feather’s from the ostrich she probably bought with her Beatle money. I wish she never won her settlement; maybe PETA’s funding would have started to run out. Who else would funds these hypocrites? Then again, a sucker is born every day.

  43. BuyFromABreeder

    Peta’s only purpose seems to be the promotion of itself, using naked people to do it. Who gives a shit about wearing fur, and buying a dog from a store or a breeder instead of the pound? I’m sick of this stupid organization and it’s ridiculous ads.

    Buy leather and wear fur! Fuck these morons!

  44. Dian

    Wrong wrong wrong!!! nudity covered only by a cross,and holding a dog, cat or any other animal is just wrong. It is sin. Do you know what sin is? Those who say they think it is great for her to pose nude and just using the cross for covering her breasts and down below is sin and needs to be repented. People need to repent….go back to your first love Christ Jesus who will forgive you. amen. This may also be the reason why our land suffers. It needs to be healed. Lord help us.

  45. Borsko

    I wish i could be that dog in 2nd pic..

  46. Borsko

    I wish i could be that dog in 2nd pic..

  47. jes

    i don’t find this particularly offensive…
    it is the christian thing to do to help gods creations that are in need,
    and well…nudity isnt anti-christian. especially not when everythings covered. plenty of christians wear bathingsuits that expose more.

  48. Alex

    Where can I get this in
    a) Computer wallpaper size
    b) Life size carboard cutout?!

  49. Nissa

    I cannot believe the amount of hatred, bigotry and ignorance coming out of most of your mouths (or fingers).

    Not all pedophiles are Catholic, and not all Catholics are pedophiles. The Church abhors child abuse, and hating an institution for the actions of a handful of it’s members is disgusting. Those of you who hate on Catholics for pedophilia should be ashamed of yourselves.

    I am not a Catholic, but even I find this ad offensive. The Sistine Chapel was a piece of art work intended to be a piece of artwork. This ad is an offensive piece of softcore pornography intended to push an agenda and raise awareness. They knew it would tick people off, that is why they ran it. PETA is all about the shock factor, they want attention because any press is good press.

    In my personal opinion, the human being should be the most important cause on the planet. Eradicating poverty, stopping genocide, creating sustainable communities in third world countries. Animals come in a distant second. I’m an animal lover, and in no way am I advocating the mistreatment of animals, but animal rights should not be an issue until we’ve established basic universal human rights. Animals are a waste of our resources right now. But I do agree with the basic premise of the ad, we should be adopting from shelters rather than buying from unsanitary pet stores, or “street-breeders”. Licensed regulated breeders are fine though, if you want to drop that kind of cash. I wonder if these PETA activists have children. Makes you wonder why they would have a biological child when there are so many in foster homes needing to be adopted. (I suppose they think animals are cuter than 14 year old troubled children).
