The Catholic League is upset about this PETA ad featuring Joanna Krupa, some adorable puppies who don’t even notice her, and a strategically placed crucifix. The President of the organization told Fox 411 [via Dlisted], “The fact is that cats and dogs are a lot safer in pet stores than they are in the hands of PETA employees. Moreover, pet stores don’t rip off Christian iconography and engage in cheap irreligious claims. PETA is a fraud.” The Dancing With the Stars season 9 non-finalist responded: “I hope everyone bought the Playboy with me on the cover.” Ha, no, I’m kidding! She really said this: “I’m doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of God’s creation.”

I’m upset about Joanna Krupa’s PETA ad, too. I’m not into animals or religion. It just offends my eyes. Are those supposed to be giant puppy ears as wings? They look like the busted-up ears of my stuffed polar bear from 1983.

I feel like the question here isn’t necessarily “Is PETA evil?” or even “What are they smoking at PETA and is that some of the residual haze in the pictorial?” but rather: Now do you know who Joanna Krupa is? Will you recognize her in her next pictorial, little doggie? WILL YOU?


For those unfortunate enough to have clicked through to read this full post, a refresher course of Joanna’s best moments on Dancing With the Stars:
