PETA Honors Ellen DeGeneres and Tim Gunn, Still Sucks

by at . Comments

We have a shocking development: PETA has made news for a reason other than taking off the clothes of a D-list celebrity!

Has it saved a number of animals? Of course not. This organization doesn't actually care about that mission.

Instead, it's named new American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres and Project Runway host Tim Gunn as its Woman and Man of the Year, respectively.

"Their message that animals must be treated kindly and respectfully has reached scores of people, and many of them have changed their buying habits, all because Gunn and DeGeneres spoke up for the voiceless," PETA president Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement this week.

DeGeneres became a vegan in 2008; while Gunn always champions designs that use fake fur, faux reptile prints and other animal-friendly fabrics.

We're just shocked PETA didn't ask either celeb to pose naked. That's the way it typically makes headlines, wasting millions of dollars on Khloe Kardashian nude billboards instead of actually putting that money where the problems lie.

Ellen DeGeneres Quotes

I’m thrilled that the California supreme court overturned the ban on gay marriage. I can’t wait to get married. We all deserve the same rights, and I believe that someday we’ll look back on this and not allowing gays to marry will seem as absurd as not allowing women to vote.

Ellen DeGeneres

You showed us something in that film that I have not seen for a very, very long time.
