Dear PETA: We are very sorry.
For years, we've mocked you as an organization that cares more about publicity than efficiency, focusing on the strange reasoning in your ad campaigns that photos of naked D-listers would somehow inspire others to NOT wear fur.
But we take it all back. Every last word and criticism, and it's all due to the following nude shots of Elisabetta Canalis. George Clooney, we have no idea what you were thinking...
Says the model of her belief system: "These poor animals are electrocuted, skinned alive, drowned, and bludgeoned just for the sake of fashion... Don’t buy fur. Even a little trim - your gloves or your bag or your jackets... You must remember that animals don’t have a voice. You must be their voice. Never be afraid to speak up."
Canalis is a contestant on the new season of Dancing with the Stars, which ought to increase male viewership on that competition by about 879% this fall.
