How does PETA follow up on its controversial Tiger Woods ad? Why, with the Octomom, of course!
The fame-seeking mom, who gave birth to octuplets last year, now has 14 mouths to feed and a mortgage to pay off. According to the Associated Press, she is in default on a 450,000 balloon payment on her house, and it could be just days before it goes into foreclosure.
So PETA came along and made her an offer she apparently couldn’t refuse: She will get $5,000 and all the veggie dogs the single mom and her 14 kids can eat in one year if she will put up a sign in her front yard reading, “Don’t let your dog or cat become an ‘Octomom.’ Always spay or neuter.” The sign features a cat nursing a litter of kittens.
Our very own Jill Harness thinks its ironic:
What’s next, Snoop Dogg telling kids not to smoke marijuana? Janis Dickinson speaking out on botox?
But I think it's just PETA being clever. Here's what the organization has to say about it:
Massive media attention is aimed at covering Octomom's every move, and it's time to put that attention to good use.
