New York (ANI): The new campaign by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), which starred Pamela Anderson, has run into trouble after it was considered too racy for CNN Airport Network. The anti-fur, anti-leather commercial shows the former 'Baywatch" babe as a scantily clad airport security guard who strips passengers of animal products.
The ad also features Steve-O, Andy Dick, comic Carol Leifer and punk icon Nina Hagen, reports The New York Post. PETA planned to debut the spot tomorrow at all three Gotham-area airports, and later this fall in the other 45 major airports serviced by CNN.
However, the network wrote to PETA that it's "particularly sensitive because children make up part of the demographic in airports." And now the animal rights group is thinking of running the ad on in-flight entertainment.
