Tip: Don’t invite Jason Biggs to SeaWorld.

The Orange is the New Black actor partnered with PETA for an anti-Sea World ad that seems to starts of as a pro-SeaWorld ad: “When I have kids, I can’t wait to take them to SeaWorld,” he starts before making a jab at the theme park. “Maybe they’ll get lucky, see one of the trainers get their legs ripped off.” Sounds like some harmless family fun to us.

Wendy Williams bares all for anti-fur PETA campaign

How you doin’, Wendy? (For the uninitiated: Yes, talk show host Wendy Williams and Joey Tribbiani have the same catchphrase. Maybe she thought “D’oh!” was just too distinctive.)

Like Eva Mendes and Khloe Kardashian before her, Williams posed nude to protest the manufacturing and sale of fur clothing. “We should all try to be comfortable in our own skin and let the animals keep theirs,” she said in a statement when the ad campaign was unveiled in New York’s Times Square yesterday. Williams will also be asking her viewers to donate fur coats to PETA, which will in turn give those coats to the homeless.

Good thing Wendy had the right wig for this very special occasion.

MACHETE-KILLS-GAGA

Avert your eyes, vegan Little Monsters: Your mother has spoken, and she’s unapologetic about her taste for Cruella costumes.

Background — PETA slammed Gaga this week for being photographed in fluffy animal pelts, apparently defying a statement she made in 2009 (“I hate fur and I don’t wear fur”). The pop star fired back with a laconic, airy statement: “For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You! LOVE, gaga.”

Animal-loving fans were disappointed by what they perceived as a brush-off. So Gaga turned to her website again yesterday, posting a longer, more serious response to what she’s calling “Furgate.” Here it is in full:

Furry Vengeance: PETA calls Lady Gaga a 'turncoat'

PETA vice president Dan Mathews thinks Lady Gaga is a monster — and not the good, Gaga-approved kind.

For years, the animal rights watchdog group has been firmly in Gaga’s corner. It applauded the pop star in 2009 for wearing a coat made out of Kermit the Frog carcasses rather than real animals, proudly citing her rationale for the outfit: “I really loved this one in particular because I thought it was commentary on not wearing fur, ’cause I hate fur and I don’t wear fur,” she said.

But lately, Gaga’s been photographed wearing apparel that looks suspiciously like dead animals — both on the street and in a poster for Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming Machete Kills. And naturally, her old boosters aren’t too stoked about this development. As Mathews writes, in typically understated PETA fashion:

What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat?  READ FULL STORY
