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.

    PSS? As in Post Scriptum Scriptum?

    That said, those PETA people are really pathetic.

    The Humane Society, ASPCA and the WWF (that’s World Wildlife fund not wrestling) I believe are much better groups than PETA.

    I think PETA’s approach to the problem is close to barbaric… They show you shock videos like those presented here, and yes, it’s terrible and it happens but you don’t have to force people to watch that just because you believe it will “educate” us. EDUCATION is not the same as SCARING PEOPLE SHITLESS. Do you beat your children when they do something wrong? Because to me that’s about the same thing, scaring them so they don’t do it again. They are better ways to reach people, learn the ways and use them.
    They get celebrities to pose nude because sex fucking sells and automatically that person becomes a fucking angel but they ALWAYS say mean, rude and downright awful shit about every celebrity they don’t like because of their personal choice.
    They create people that become eco-terrorists who are willing to throw paint (or in this case flour) on people that wear fur… I don’t know if they realize what a dumb idea that is, since those people more than likely have the money to buy a new one. Good job… you guys just killed more poor animals!
    Oh and let’s not forget about the whole “eating meat is murder” thing. I understand that you don’t eat animal meat, I applaud you because it’s a very tough thing to do if you haven’t been raised vegan. But for you to come shove down our throat that what we do is wrong, no, that’s were you cross the line. Humans have cuspids (canine teeth) which means WE ARE MEANT TO EAT MEAT, it’s necessary for our body and thus we will eat as much meat as we god damn want to. We know they are vitamins and other things to take but that’s a personal freaking choice. Let people live their life and don’t judge them! I’m sure you wouldn’t like to be judged for being vegan and you would throw a pussy fit if anyone did, so don’t expect any less when you annoy the fuck out of somebody who isn’t.

    I guess there are two very important things to learn:
    #1:
    Animals should be treated with respect, they can’t tell you but they do hurt and they do have feelings. My cats get depressed if I leave for longer than a day, they receive me with so much joy when I come back. So there is no way you can tell me that they don’t suffer or have feelings. We need to find ways to help the animals in need and to educate people that animal cruelty happens all over the world with all kinds of animals and that everyone needs to do their share to stop it.
    #2:
    PETA needs to remember that humans are animals, just like our furry friends. We have feelings and we can voice them. No one likes to be publicly humiliated and by doing those terrible things all they gain is the disdain from people. You’re creating a bad name for your organization, maybe it’s not all of you but then you need to control AND teach the ones that do the right way to approach things.

  5. When it’s all said and done, her logic is mystifying. Her argument by no means shifted this one away from supporting PETA. Fur manufacture is beyond cruel to the animals. I say powder them all! They deserve for what the animals are being put through. Go PETA!

  6. you're kidding, right?

    Hmmm… being hit by a harmless, powdered grain often or cruelly being killed for someone’s lame-ass vanity. Wow.. that is a tough one.

    “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!”

    That’s about the dumbest thing I’ve heard today. Hmmm… and she thought that was clever. Ahh.. to be young, hip, and stupid.

    PETA = People that need a life.

    Their the “people” that try to stop using animals for experimental purposes when testing for new drugs, right ?

    Phiffff.

    Get a job. Get a family. Get a life.

    When is the last time an animal attacked it’s own kind to defend a human? Pleny, dumb-ass. I once had a dog attack a German Sheppard that was going to attack me. I am sure I am not the only one who has been defended in such a way by a loyal dog.

    I meant “plenty” ;P

  12. To those who think Sammy is right and there are “extremists” at PETA (you crankymiss, samson and others).

    Fighting for animals rights is actually putting humans before animals. It is putting humans above animals indeed, because we are supposed to be the “intelligent” specie as opposed to the idiotic specie that needs to advertise animal abuse and their kill for fashion purposes.

    In regards to humans or animals being more important, when did fashion become way more important than animal lives? Sammy, what about we give flour to fellow poor humans and you give us your dog (not to feed them) to use his coat for their cold at night?

    In regards to animals doing things you do not understand, well, it is common for humans to jump into conclusions at things they do not understand PERIOD. Now that does not justify supporting cruelty to another living thing because others do it, that is not intelligent reasoning, neither applied nor understood.

    and 24, what has education done? If flour weren’t throwed on that air head, many would not even care to consider that wearing fur might mean supporting animal abuse.

    I think she must be stupid.
    “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!” Oh I dunno… maybe when a dogs owner gets threatened by another dog. The owners dog will attack the other dog if they feel that their owner is in trouble.
