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.

  1. Fuck you

    Damn so many of you little bitches cry too much, Cry cry cry you little bitches.
    Its just a fine ass girl doing some add.
    Who cares if you hate peta and fuck your rilegion.

    Okay for the people who are arguing my point. The reason abortion came up was bc she said dogs are the most defenseless animals, you can say people have their opionion on they but it’s not true unborn babies only defense is if they gave a good mother if they don’t they won’t even get a chance to be born. For the people saying I’m religious or whatever I’m catolic but not religious at all I drink smoke ect. The difference us I know the human life is more important then dogs. If you got to save a dog or a person I hope to god it would be a person or else that’s pretty fucked up and for the dumbasses whobsay that people would disagree that it should be your choice it is your choice but choosing to end the life of your child is WRONG . You fucking crazy people who are like save the puppies!!!!!!!!!!! You think people should be burned on a steak if something happens to a dog, but you think hey do what you want with that baby you made in your stomach because you had sex and were to immature or stupid to realize the consequences. Fucking dumbass ignorant people…

  3. This picture is totally fixed with photoshop!!! shes still hot but its fake!!

  4. Defensless animals my ass

    Animals, defenseless? Wild dogs can rip off limbs no problem! Same with bears, remember that one chick who was mauled by a bear, but was saved by her rock-hard abs? The only reason they haven’t taken over the fucking world already is because they have brains the size of peanuts!
    The only reason I think most people look at these ads at all is for the barely dressed hot chicks, and even then they don’t give a rat’s ass about PETA.

  5. equals3

    Three words to describe this ad.

    Fap fap fap.

  6. james

    one, this is my first and last time on this
    two, if we had laws in place to spay and neuter all animals, animal shelters would not be as over crowded as they are. for instance new york and baltimore are a few states that it is mandatory for you animals to be spayed and neutered. this keeps animals from over population.
    three, this advertisement is bad advertisement. yes sex sells but not when lives are trying to being saved. it catches the eye of the wrong crowd. im not offended but come on PETA! this is why i dont support you!
    four, #35 keep buying from a breeder and see how fucking stupid your dog is. youll be surprised how many animals from breeders are actually imbreds, and your the one paying for it.
    five, full bloods are good to have but from working in an animal shelter and watching what happens behind closed doors, it really doesnt matter if you have a full blood, mix, or just a mut; find the dog/cat that needs a home…not one that you want to show off and look cool. animals are not toys nor “pets” they are family, friends, and they will always be there for you. they feel as much as we do.
    six, i suggest everyone on this page to go to a shelter and pick the saddest dog/cat (non aggressive) and be its friend for 5 minutes. if it doesnt change your stance on this topic…maybe you should be the one on this ad. cuz you know she doesnt give two shits about the animals she “donates her dirty ass no good money too”
    seven, #142 i agree with your religion standpoint. those stuck up christians out there….OPEN YOUR MIND AND QUITE BEING A JESUS SHUT IN! lol

  7. hey

    i’m atheist and i don’t like any religion but i do respect them. and what peta did to roman catholics (well technically i’m roman catholic but w/e) was disgraceful and embarresing to catholics. who do they think are? playboy against animal abuse. them putting naked women (which is offensive to women too) in their advertisments is not going to stop animal abuse. and what they are too stupid to realize is that if every human in the world was a vegatarian thousands of species including humans would go extinct. humans are omnivores, it’s natural for us to eat meat.

  9. BreadandCheese

    correction, the most defenseless of God’s animals would be Bacteria. Trillions of those get killed everyday, but Peta doesn’t defend them. Either that or rocks.

  10. =)

    why the hell does she have to be naked?

  11. Jesus Christ

    BLASPHEMY!

  12. Advent

    I can’t believe Peta could be this tasteless. I will never ever give them another dime. I prefer to support my local animal shelter. They have a wonderful parade and are the ones who are taking in the unwanted animals. Feeding them and placing them.

    As a Catholic this makes me sick to my stomach. Why does she have to be naked? Nice ad to come out with for our first week of Advent! The Crucifix covering her privates is just too much.

    How very sad and offensive…

  13. flaky

    I found a HOTTEST interracial club =MixedConnect *.* C0M=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!

  14. Geri

    Peta is showing its true side……… now I will be sure to never give
    them a dime. This organization is a freakin’ gong show, can’t decide
    if they want to save animals or offend their supporters.

  15. slinky

    oh my gosh this is ridiculous!!! i was pescetarian once and i kinda supported peta but now they are just getting annoying..every photo shoot they have they is always nakedness!! it pisses me off sometimes. it’s just come on..they can’t have like a bit of clothing? it’s pretty much “animal saving” porn. I’m christian and i am offended by this..not catholic..but Christian.

  17. whatever

    heather – you silly, silly girl. babies don’t grow in ladies’ ‘stomachs,’ they grow in their uterus. jesus also does not like you using that ‘f’ word. go study for your SATs or something and get a life. i liked the comment where you asked someone to use terms a junior and high school could understand – your vocab should be pretty well established at this stage, honey, and if its not, don’t hold your breath on college…probably shouldn’t anyways, since you don’t understand basic human anatomy. i would suggest you become a nun, but they like them smart and a little less bitter.

    and to HARRY DOYLE – i am DELIGHTED my tax dollars go to pounds to care for cats and dogs. and i am even more DELIGHTED that yours do too. i would much rather they go to that than paying for anything to do with you. clearly, you are not a pet owner….i certainly am, and the reason i love my dog, and most animals, so much is that they are so loving. they are a more evolved life form than you, because they actually have a heart. and your claims that peta is against an open market – please! i am not peta fan, but this ad does not go against the idea of an ‘open market.’ its not exactly like the pet market is a significant force in the economy and no legitimate breeder makes an entire career or massive business out of dog breeding. that being said, i hope the free market, which you love so much, and as temperamental as it is, decides to drop you on your ass. here’s to hoping you lose your job/business in this rotten economy…and thank goodness, my tax dollars will be too tied up in animal shelters to help you out!

    Ok every time i see a dog at a store window or want to buy a freakin animal all i am going to think of joanna and i will try to adopt an animal at a shelter. Well every time i look for the kind of dog i Would like i can never find at a shelter for the fact that i am a picky person when i am looking for a stanferedshine terrer, well i am not sure i spelled it right but u get the idea. Not many people at an animal shelter nave a small looking pitbull. So from now on i will still look for a small looking pit bull an still think of joanna and what she had to do to get her message across….

  19. Maybe the Catholic church should just go away. People, get over it… she believes in the cause and feels like this is a way to bring attention. Good on here for actually trying to do something she believes in. The rest of you people are bystanders as the world happens around you. Maybe all the Catholics should learn the truth how Constantine beat pagans into his religion with all borrowed traditions and then maybe they would rethink christianity altogether.

  20. B

    umm… isnt PETA all for like total animal liberation and against pets and all that? so why are they saying adopt? im confused. one other thing. the catholics are against gays right? but theyre also against this? If you aint turned on by this, then youre gay! or married, and your wife is looking over your shoulder. lol

  21. ab

    i think this is wrong i agree with the catholic church

  22. Heather

    Whatever Jesus doesn’t like the word ass either I don’t care if you think my grammars bad, or my science I know babies comes from the uterous that’s not the point… And sweet heart ijust because I know abortion I wrong doesn’t mean I should become a nun, most people use to accept that abortion was wrong but now that people are thinking more and more that anything they choose to do is right. I think it’s great thy your attacking the words rather then what I’m saying.and I’m not a Jesus freak I don’t go to church or anything thing I just know common send that humans are more important then animals. End of story. Yeah I love dogs but seriously if you think you should save a dog over a person then you have a bigger problem then my so called lack of basic human anatomy. And also you say I have no life… Hm interesting since what I’m saying on her has anything to do with me having a life it’s quite irrelvant.

  23. gecko

    Guys, why everyone getting so worked up.. Christianity isn’t real- the bible is the same as harry potter- essentiallly a metaphorical rulebook on how to live life- It’s a nice idea but the bits about one man creating the planet, magic tricks etc should have been left out

    None of it is real- So why does it matter that she has that shape covering her tits, it might as well have been a ‘plus’ (add) sign

    By the way Christians? why aren’t dinosaurs mentioned during the creation story, when humans, water, sky, and lots of other animals are? Could it be because it was written by ordinary people that didn’t know of dinosaurs existence when they made it up?

  24. matthew ross

    she should sit on a pyramid and see how they like that one lol

  25. Andrew Shelton

    This is probably the first thing peta has done that i don’t have a problem with. Buying an animal is a waist of money. I’m all for adoption. Plus there is a naked hot chick to go with the message. :)

  26. FatherJoe

    Peta is against cruelty to animals and there she is, standing (or stepping) on the damn dogs head!

    There is no catholic symbolism in this advertisement.
    1. Shes not holding a crucifix, it’s a cross, the Crucifix as a catholic holy symbol has Jesus on it, the one in the ad does not, therefore it is just a cross.
    2. There is nothing in the background that suggests she is in a church, it could easily be a concert hall.
    3. Angels are referenced in many other mythologies and religions. If you see Catholic Angels when you look at this advertisement, then you are inferring that Angels according to the bible are sex symbols, therefore you are at fault. Also, people dress up as “Sexy Angels” for Halloween all the time, and no one seems to be making a big media fuss over it, by jumping at one and not the other makes you a hypocrite.

  29. Heather

    Gecko the catholic church now excepts evolution so you shouldn’t assume things, and metagod the cross is a catholic symbol whether jesus is on it or not are you dumb…

    @Heather
    I hope you are not serious, but I can clearly see that you are. “The Catholic Church now accepts evolution.” Oh, so now they are accepting and not accepting what they want, when they want? The church is full of hypocrisy and is much of an issue. PETA should be able to use whatever they want in their ads. Is their ad effective? I don’t think so. Do they use religious objects? Yes. Big deal.
    Heather, your views on humans coming before animals, is actually pretty twisted in my opinion. Just because we, as humans, are more intelligent than other animals, doesn’t mean we should come before them. After all, we are animals.
    Also, your view on abortion also sucks. An unborn thing doesn’t know or care what happens to it. It is not developed and therefore, has no implications. Humans have been causing a lot of harm lately and should look at that before they go around saying “bashing religion is bad blahblahblah”. People need to get their heads out of their asses.

  32. krz07

    the government needs to shut down PETA as a scam… i cant believe they are regarded as a charity org.. i’m against animal cruelty to some extent but def not supporting PETA..

  33. imjustsayin

    i think adoption is awesome! but just a note. if you don’t buy dogs from certain breeders they kill the puppies no one buys because they can’t afford to house or feed them. this is a true story.

    nice ad. PETA always know how to grab attention. GOOD WORK!

    PS. i eat bunnies for dinner they’re yummy!
    Dont plan on becoming a vegetarian but, i appreciate other points of view and life styles. :)

  34. Heather

    Okay whatever haha go ahead and teach their children it’s okay to kill their inborn children you fucking ignorant people who don’t realize if your mothers had selfish reasons you wouldn’t be here, and I don’t really see why people keep insulting me about the church I not a practicing catholic I just believe their morals are correct I don’t really care if you think it’s true or not… And I don’t see why your resisting that humans are more important because if you would choose a person to live or a dog I’m sure it would be a person and if not why then honestly your pretty fuched up and I suggest or seek help

  35. Heather

    And whether your catholic, jewish, hindu, or whatever you don’t mock or make fun of peoples religions it’s just disrespectful. Good people don’t do shit like that it’s not about religion it’s about good morals and values

    That is a sexy ad. I guess I do have one thing in common with the Catholics that is upset. I would like to see her without that cross too.

  41. Nemo

    so whats the big deal?? we come in this world naked y cant we be in heaven naked?? i mean really has anybody gone to heaven and seen with their own eyes that angels are wearing robes??? its the human body that “GOD” created. so if you think everything god does is beautiful then you shouldn’t condemn the human body, cause then aren’t you condemning him?? And if you dont like it don’t look! isn’t there a conmandment “THOU SHALT NOT JUDGE”!!!!! ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE!!!! remember “GOD LOVES AND FORGIVES ALL HIS CHILDREN” so if he can forgive so should u!

  42. ali

    anyone notice that all the dogs in the picture are purebred? go find one of those at an adoption facility (it’s damn near impossible)

  43. Ronny

    I don’t get why she has to be naked. Isn’t that just setting the “women are sexual objects” stereotype. Sex doesn’t sell everything. This ad is retarted. I do love animals though and the slogan “Adopt. Never Buy” is something I would do. Still their means of promoting it is just stupid. I don’t even know what PETA is, but I don’t like it already. Tell the bimbo to put some clothes on, she looks like a moron.

    How the mighty have fallen…

    Do you know what the website is called?

    its called “thesuperficial.com”

    This website is all about showing content that pertain to shallow qualities and the opinions of those kinds of people.

    Also seriously? Heather and everyone who argues on this website? Its a picture okay, if you were blind you wouldnt care…
    There’s something wrong heather if you need to compulsively check this website and contradict everyone and tell people about your morals and ideals.

    No one cares!

    You are talking to complete strangers over the internet you will never meet in your life! Unless you’re that kind of person *wink * *wink*

    Stop wasting your time broadcasting your ideas to an audience that already has an established perspective on the issue.

    It’s a waste of time, listen to that guy who told you over the internet to get a life and stop arguing over the internet

    A wise person once said “Arguing over the internet is like competing in the special Olympics. Even if you win, you are still retarded.

    @ Ronny

    just because you post the same thing four times in the row doesnt make it any right. Do you have short term memory loss?

    Hmm ill post my comment.

    10 seconds later

    I just typed up this so i should post it

    10 seconds later

    Did i type that? Better click the post button again

  49. Heather

    Phillip i think you’d be wrong that a blind person wouldn’t care that’s lf a blind person couldn’t see someone they love they wouldn’t care. And there is nothing wrong with me voicing my opionions I have an I phone so I can whwnever I want but thanks for your opionion and veiws and the disable

  50. Tell me something

    eh…i think this ad is a little too much….I understand way the Catholic Church would get upset…and other than that this ad does NOT make we wanna stop eating meat. Or even make me think about the poor animals. I think it’s best if they went for less sexual and more informative…sigh what is this world coming too smh
