Samantha Ronson tells PETA about itself

November 15th, 2008 // 114 Comments

Samantha Ronson took to her MySpace blog yesterday to let PETA know they kind of acted like A-holes by throwing flour at Lindsay Lohan while she was entering a Paris nightclub:

There is a fine line that distinguishes the difference between exercising our freedom of expression and offending others, for example the debate regarding freedom of speech vs. hate speech…. i feel that this principle should apply to protestors also. It’s a pity that some groups feel the need to assault people as opposed to fighting with words.
Whenever I feel the need to vent about something that feels unfair to me I reach for my computer, I don’t run out of the house with abusive intentions. I don’t expect everyone to react the same way, but I do expect people to respect each other. Maybe that’s my first mistake? It seems lately I am learning that there are too many people who put another species before their fellow man and that’s sad. I don’t wear fur, but I don’t think I have the right to ATTACK those who do. No one has that right.
PETA should focus their efforts on educating people on what they believe are injustices instead of seeking press via harassing those in the limelight. I received an apology too many days late from the PETA folks (the blog removal was too little too late) and today I’m pissed at the bag of flour thrown on Lindsay last night. Not because I got powdered down, but because the girl who threw it acted like an animal herself. I take that back, it’s an insult to animals to group her in with them, my dog is FAR more civilized than that person. I would have more respect for them if they didn’t use other people to get their point across. Lindsay, Mary Kate, Ashley Olsen, Anna Wintour and the rest of the targeted celebrities aren’t the problem, I’m pretty sure they’re not the only ones wearing fur, in fact, they should be appreciated by PETA for giving them a target. If it weren’t for them, who would get them press?????
I know I’m probably going to get a lot of angry emails in response, but I don’t really care. I got enough last week for no reason so I’m more than happy to ignore the nastiness after seeing what I saw last night. I’m not about to throw on a fur coat in retaliation, but had I had one within reach, I’m not sure I would have walked away from it.
p.s. when was the last time you saw an animal attack one of its own in defense of a human? hmmmmm….. that’s one to grow on!
p.s.s. i think there are plenty of families that could have used that flour for a meal. nice job, lady.

If Sam’s entry was supposed to be goddamn never-ending therefore making me hungry for veal, Mission Accomplished. On that note, you know what brings out the flavor of veal? Dolphin. I should be a chef. Oh yeah, Emeril, it’s ON.

    You know, even though I don’t really like her, she’s right. Those people at PETA are not only wrong to put other animals before humans, but are doing so through violence. They’re violating the concept of free speech.

  2. jzz

    stupid people should shut the fuck up.

  3. tiff tiff

    Does sam know how these companys abtain there fur??? ITs inhumane! Some places skin poor animals alive and then toss there bloody half alive bodys to the side… Get a grip Sam. Do some research …

    • shut it

      Shut the fuck up, if those animals wernt raised for this purpose they wouldnt exsist to begin with, you dont like dont use it, but dont fucking preach to others on your high horse.

  4. Katherine

    @ 3, no loser, you are NOT first, you are THIRD. What is up with these losers in here and their “first” bullshit. Don’t they have something more important to do? Probably not…they’re probably overweight, computer nerds eating cold pizza and “diet” soda, thinking that just because they drink unsugared drinks their fat ass will lose weight. I’m so sick of them!!! Get a fucking life!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That said, Samantha is mad because PETA through flour at Lindsey? She should be happy, maybe PETA is just hinting at the fact she needs to eat something because she’s anorexic…that or they knew that they would get good pictures of Lindsey sniffing the flour thinking it’s coke.

  5. e-rock

    I am a PETA supporter, and she is right to an extent. They should not be throwing anything at anyone. But unfortunately there are extremists in every society, and those crazy stories are the only people hear. What they don’t hear is all of the wonderful accomplishments that PETA and other animal rights have done, by saving millions of animals from cruelty each year. The best thing that any animal rights advocate can do, is to educate people.
    Now que the idiotic anti-animal rights people that think its cool to wear fur, and think PETA are just a bunch of left -wing nuts.
    Let me tell you about fur- 50% of the worlds fur comes from CHINA where there NO regulations on how the animal (often dogs and cats) are killed. I have seen video footage that will make you cry. Dogs skinned alive, picking up their heads while looking into the camera. Now please think again before bash someone who just wants to help these defensless animals that HAVE NO RIGHTS, we take them from them.
    I urge to look at this video, and then really think twice before slamming someone who is trying to help them:

  7. Anon

    I don’t like the actions of peta or any animal activist for that matter.
    In the UK Animal activist dug up the body of the mother-in-law of one of the executives at a research centre, Huntingdon Life Sciences, and wouldn’t say where the body was centre closed down.

    They still haven’t said where the body is as far as I’m aware.
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2006/may/12/animalwelfare.topstories3
    They think their crusade is so just that they can do whatever they want.

    Also I’ve seen a dog attack another dog to defend a human Samantha.
    It’s not uncommon for an animal to attack another to defend a human

  8. crankymiss

    The point here is that some PETA advocates were so rude by throwing flour at Lindsay, and that is not the proper way to express freedom of speech. We understand PETA’s wish to stop violence against animals, but some are, apparently, becoming violent animals themselves. Samantha not only raised some points; she was damn right about a lot of things. Respect begets respect.

  9. Aura

    HAHAHAHA….. the whole idea of Lindsay getting floured down is so hilarious!!!

    Regardless of whether PETA crossed the line or not… … when celebrities wear fur coats and start posing away in front of cameras… they are advocating and promoting real fur clothes!!!
    And they themselves know it too well !!!! Hah… they are not dumb!

    I am in no way associated with PETA, but, all I know is, it is inhumane to wear real fur. And sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures.

    SO STOP WHINING YOU IDIOT, AND STOP ADVERTISING REAL FUR!

  10. Michelle

    well put e-rock.

    Anon, well done on tarring everyone with the same brush. As e-rock said, these people are in the minority, there are many people out there doing good work.

    Jenny – you know its really very annoying that people assume that people fighting for animal rights are putting animals before human. Big and inaccurate assumption.

  11. I agree that throwing flour at someone wearing fur is idiotic.
    I think some of PETA’s actions are idiotic.

    I’m not for PETA.. I’m for the ethical treatment of every living being.

    But before you make some dumbass (typical superficial comments) comment here

    Go to this w w w . f u r i s d e a d . c o m

    Have the balls to watch it
    Don’t pretend you did and be a little sissy bitch
    Watch it
    Watch the videos
    With Sound and All
    See for yourselves how we get fur

    Then make your dumbass (typical superficial reader) comment here.

    Till then.. STFU

  12. And I love that she mentions her dog
    Most fur (including P Diddy’s line, etc) Are made with Dog and Cat fur.

    Dogs.
    Pets
    With collars still on
    Someone’s dog that’s gone missing.

    Don’t be dumb
    Just go look

    Then come back and make an educated comment
    Understand both sides first.

    w w w . f u r i s d e a d . c o m

    It takes 5 mins to watch just ONE of those videos
    Let’s see if you can actually sit through it.

    I doubt it.

  13. LOL
    I wanna see the pictures of this.

  14. rodney dangerfield

    flour in the coat won’t bother her anyway. she’ll just steal herself a new one.

  15. Rachel

    I dunno..I just read this and all I got was: 1) Sam was pissed that someone besides her nailed Lindsay and 2) She hates the girl because she’s vegetarian, not vag-itarian. *Shrugs*

  16. Wow

    @Samantha Ronsan
    “p.s. when was the last time you saw an animal attack one of its own in defense of a human? hmmmmm….. that’s one to grow on!”–Samantha Ronsan

    The amount of stupid in that sentence knows no bounds. DOGS, cats, monkeys, etc. have been known to do this kind of thing often. Please do the world a favor and do something significant with your life before you open your trap to the gaping whole that is your brain. k. Thanx

    Yours truly,
    The world

  17. Ted from LA

    Sam is biting the hand that feeds her. PETA is there to protect critters like her.

  18. gotta say it

    is it bad that i would seize any opportunity to throw something at lindsay lohan? if she were holding a cat, i’d throw something at her and claim i thought she was wearing a muff (i’d dodge the cat of course)

    my biggest issue with peta is the hypocrisy. did you know that the group’s founder takes insulin for her diabetes when she claims not to imbibe any animal products at all? in case you didn’t know, insulin comes from animals. also, they claim that owning pets is “slavery.” i think if they cut the extremism, they’d be a lot more tolerable.

    but please continue to throw stuff at lindsay.

  19. dork

    Do you think Samantha looks like her dog? Or, does her dog look like her?

    #11 michelle.

    I said I don’t like the actions of these groups.
    They might be doing the right thing but in the wrong way.
    Their actions are wrong and they’re hiding behind their cause to justify themselves .
    Then someone like you comes along.
    Someone who has ago at the people who says its wrong and jumps to almighty conclusions that we think everyone in peta and other groups are full off people like these extremist.

    You sort of people try to convince everyone it’s only a hand full off people (ignoring it was hundreds in the link I gave) and have no links or nothing to do with these saintly protectors of these wonderful creatures.

    You’re wrong. They aren’t a small minority. Their actions aren’t minor and you should spend your time finding these idiots in your organisations and getting rid off them instead of burying your head in the sand..
    I bet you wont because they’re doing what you won’t.

    You act like we don’t agree with their actions so why does everyone think we’re linked to them. Maybe the giant peta banner they carry is an indication.

    @4: Yeah the way they day is inhuman… because THEY AREN’T FUCKING HUMANS, THEY ARE ANIMALS! they don’t have the rights of a human because:
    1. They don’t have enough reasoning intelligence to understand it and apply it.
    2. They are wild beings that commit the meanest things if you look at it from the human side: cannibal komodo dragons, lions, spiders, dogs. Dolphins killing just for fun… it’s proven, dolphins kill baby dolphins for the fun of it!

    “For the last 17 years or so, marine biologists have begun paying a great deal of attention to dead baby dolphins and porpoises of all ages washing up ashore, and we quote, ‘mangled in unexpected ways.’

    The discovery that Bottlenose Dolphins were occasionally viciously reconfiguring their own children wasn’t really all that much of a big deal. Humans are the only species on the planet that actually gives even a tiny shit about infanticide. It was what the dolphins were doing to the porpoises that entered the domain of the ‘seriously fucked-up’.

    Thirteen-foot male Bottlenose Dolphins were hunting down porpoises, beating to death and then playing with their corpses, all for no readily apparent reason. At the time of this writing, the majority opinion of the marine science community was that this breathtakingly savage interspecies homicide is for–and this is Science, here–shits ‘n’ giggles.

    Reports of ludicrously sexually aggressive dolphins attempting to rape human women abound from all over the globe. And in 1994, a male Bottlenose off the coast of San Paolo, Brazil, that was noted to be fond of female human swimmers attacked a pair of human males that the dolphin apparently considered to be competition … and killed one of them.”

    @6: I’ve watched the video and now I understand that what PETA followers get wrong is supposing the animals have human feelings and intelligence and therefore are suffering in a way a human would. Although I really think that there are more civilized ways to kill animals.

    @11: PETA itself states that:
    “yet in The Dark Knight, he was punching out dogs left and right. Sure, it was self-defense, but doesn’t the man with the James Bond gadgets know anything about peanut butter treats and deflecting devices?”

    They removed Batman from #1 of their “Animal-Friendly Superheroes List” because he fights with dogs in The Dark Night…. that made PETA really, really mad, but they didn’t even care about all the scenes in which Batman is fighting with humans, and making humans suffer, even killing them… no, they don’t think about it, they think about those poor dogs!. LESSON: It’s okay to kill humans but leave those innocent dogs that were trying to kill you alone.

    @Samson: Okay, I’d like to see where all your dolphin reports come from. And did you ever stop to think that maybe there is a reason and scientists and marine biologist have yet to figure out why the hell they’re doing it? BELIEVE OR NOT: HUMANS DO NOT KNOW EVERYTHING. We are an arrogant species that wants to control *everything* and most of us don’t give a shit how we do it. And I’m sorry, it doesn’t require intelligence of any kind to know you’re suffering and miserable. Why don’t you start watching some of Animal Planet’s Animal Cops, hmm? Look at all the dogs and cats and animals that have been left behind, neglected, beat, abused and all can still rebound and trust humans. Find a human that can do that without years of therapy. Animals may be less intelligent, but they sure as hell are the higher species.

  23. lalalalala

    I totally agree with Sam. I’m a PETA supporter but I’m never impressed by actions like these….there’s so many ways to educate people and this is clearly not it…. as we have seen in the human world, fighting violence with violence does not work….I assume this goes for defending animals too….

  24. Sim Sung

    #23 – I eat dog and cat (and occasional rat). That makes me higher species. I even do with chop stick. Let’s see your dolphin do that. (they are best braised with goat milk dip) Yum Yum

    Oh, BTW, dolphin eat their cousin fish. Does that make them cannibal? No sign of higher species there. They eat them live and they swim around in stomach of dolphin until they die of acids. Talk about inhumane.

  25. Some things are better said or done with actions, thats all. I think if Lohan is a role model (which she no doubt is by just being a celebrity), then she needs to accept some sacrifices.
    I think it is entertaining at the least but also shows how much she needs to fix herself.

  26. Rossco

    I generally can’t stand PETA, but then I generally dislike humanity and think it’s a virus. So, I tend to like animals better than people.

  27. Frank Lucas' Bitch

    PETA pisses me off. There are better ways to prove a point than pull whatever they like to do. All these extremists and their poignant vegan ways that they feel the need to shove down other people throats is borderline annoying. Humans have been using animals for food and clothing for survival since the beginning of time. Although fashion is no longer the survival it doesn’t mean that these people have the right to shove their beliefs down our throats. Talk about another Christianity/Islam here.
    When they begin spray-painting leather jackets that’s when heads will definitely roll.

  28. John

    I am all for PETA, People Eating Tasty Animals that is.

  29. Sport

    what. the. fuck.
    She is right on the money. Did I just agree with this skanky freak? Damn me.
    Seriously she nailed it on PETA.

  30. Domenica

    She’s %100 right! Way to rise above Sam!

  31. Eggy

    I think PETA blew it. I am opposed to wearing fur, but I disagree with the way that PETA tried to get their message across. Stick to the naked hot chicks in the street, hippies.

  32. Do the people at PETA not see that there is a financial meltdown going on, wars going on, mass suffering. No, what’s really important is throwing flour on Lindsay Lohan.

    “because the girl who threw it acted like an animal herself. I take that back, it’s an insult to animals to group her in with them, my dog is FAR more civilized than that person”

    all i can say is GOD DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    if i were that peta chick i would be re-evaluating my life after reading that…..wow!!!!!!!!!!! samantha gots some disses

  35. Nio

    YEEEEAAAAAH for Samantha Ronson!!! Agreed.

  36. britney's weave

    “If it weren’t for them [fur-wearing celebs], who would get them press?????”

    yeah, b/c the only type of animal cruelty is people wearing fur. good one.

    “when was the last time you saw an animal attack one of its own in defense of a human?”

    seriously? some dogs will turn on their own in a heartbeat if another animal threatens their territory and/or owner. her blog would have been a lot more effective had it not had holes in it.

  37. D. Richards (Butch.)

    BORING… I read the first line, noticed that there was a foot more of the same poorly written drivel, and decided to save myself the five minutes of my life that I could never get back had I given a fuck . . . Nice job, Ronson, ya’ fag.

    I mean, seriously, Samantha is such a faggot. Am I wrong? Nope.

  38. nard

    How come no one targeted Samantha Ronson for wearing the body of an ugly boy.

    P.S. – Let it be known. Most real animal rights activists can’t stand PETA either.

  40. Amanda Sanderson

    Holy crap #6…i just watched that video and i had NO idea that was actually happening. Yes, I eat meat and eggs (i eat bio eggs and meat where the animals are free roaming) but this is just so wrong on so many levels. i dont believe that animals have the same emotions and feelings as a human but why does that matter..they feel plain just as much im sure. bah..that video made me want to puke…I will NEVER wear fur not even rabbit fur again.

    PS. boo f’nhoo lindsey lohan got flour on her..its not like she was hit or something. she should watch taht video and see how disgusting animal skinning is.

  41. Amber

    I totally agree that fur is wrong, and I think it’s awful. Why not wear faux fur? Good for Peta, although I don’t get how dumping flour on somebody is soooo awful.

  42. EveryonePoops

    @Samson, a couple things:

    1) It’s “humanE”, retard. Look it up. “hyoo-main”

    2) Your argument for we have every reason to subject animals needless abuse and torture doesn’t really hold up. A small child or a severely retarded person hasn’t any more capacity for cognition or reason than many animals do, so by your rational we can stuff them in cages and skin them alive, too.

    3) PETA is guilty of a lot of things like this stunt being discussed here, but anthropomorphism isn’t generally one of them.

    4) I too would be interested in where you’re getting these alleged “facts” about dolphins

    5) There’s a world of difference between animal rights activists and animal welfare advocates. The major tenet in possessing rights is that you have to have the mental capability to know that you have them. So “animal rights” is kind of a misnomer or at least mislead notion. Animals don’t have this capability, but that doesn’t give us any right to torture or even kill them. Only retards like yourself think this way.

    6) Many actors use stunt doubles who have gone through years of training to risk their neck in those action sequences without breaking it. CGI’s are also commonly used today in lieu of a real person. Ever hear of a canine stunt double, you fucking idiot?

  43. LAUREN KUHN :)

    p.s.s. i think there are plenty of families that could have used that flour for a meal. nice job, lady.

    That’s my favorite part… You know, because the fur Lindsay is wearing could’ve been used by the animal it belonged to.

  45. Truth doctor

    I can’t believe people are rationalizing dumping flour on someone. “it’s not that bad”, really? Ever hear of pneumonia? Better yet, try doing that to somebody with severe asthma. That wouldn’t be soooo awful, right? Nitwit.

  46. LAUREN KUHN :)

    PETA fucking sucks. Sure, they get the word out about inhumane treatment of animals, which is great, but they go to the WORST LENGTHS to get their point across… Throwing paint on people? Sure, it’s kind of funny but in retrospect, it really just makes any animal rights activist look insane. I love animals, I’m going to school to become a vet tech, I don’t eat meat, I volunteer at the humane society, and I inform – in a kind, knowledgeable way – others about animal cruelty that they never even heard of or thought about. THAT is what I think being an animal rights activist is about. Yeah, sometimes I do get mad and I will yell at people for stating ignorant comments or doing things that are totally wrong (such as leaving their dog outside in freezing weather), but overall I just try to make sure people know about what’s going on and usually it will change their minds about a lot of things. PETA is just absolutely ridiculous. I will never like PETA.

  47. LAUREN KUHN :)

    Everyonepoops – I love you.

  48. @ #6 e-rock – I couldn’t watched that whole video. I felt sorry for those animals and started to cry so I shut the video off. While I am on the fence about the whole fur thing, those animal killing Chinese are cock sucking, scumbag, faggot-ass queers. The least they could do was kill them humanely with something like a bullet to the head instead of just letting them lie there in pain as if they WERE dead.

    Someone should start torturing those Chinese people who thnk their way of acquiring fur is right.

  49. gina

    this is completly ridiculous. does samantha ronson and lindsay lohan not know what fur comes from?

    “p.s.s. i think there are plenty of families that could have used that flour for a meal. nice job, lady.”

    yeah, well theres an animal that could have used that fur to live. nice job.
