No more snark: PETA pulls back on mean 'No More Whales' billboard

Sarah Gilbert

It was a scene right out of Mean Girls, only it was adults, and supposedly those who are working toward the good of the planet: the billboard from animal rights activism group PETA with the slogan, "Save the Whales / Lose the Blubber: Go Vegetarian" next to an image of an obese woman in a bikini.

Let's just say that the general consensus was horror and revulsion and that we were recoiling from PETA's brand of vegetarianism, not the unfortunate "love handles" depicted.
