PETA ads showing nude Joanna Krupa clutching a crucifix ticks off Catholic church

Joanna Krupa's nude PETA ad  2

Joanna Krupa's nude PETA ad where she clutches a cross to her bosom has pissed off the Catholic church reports Fox. Imagine that. Peta ads pissing people off. How unexpected.

"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."

    I wish all catholic models would do these kind of ads. @kaliganges: They are real feathers from an adopted ostrich

    Probably one of the least offensive (to me) PETA ads I've seen in a bit.

    Sure, if you don't think hack photoshop work is offensive. (MY EYES THEY BURN!)

    You are giving 'them' too much credit for cut/paste skill. Lighting abuse it making my head spin.
