PETA’s Tasteless Ad: ‘Enough To Make Bea Arthur Roll In Her Grave’

April 22, 2010

(ChattahBox) – A new ad by PETA featuring Bea Arthur has raised a few concerns over whether or not the organization should be using the image of the deceased ‘Golden Girls’ actress.

Arthur died last year after a struggle with cancer, at the age of 87.

In the new ad, which is part of a campaign against the slaughter practices of fast food giant McDonald’s, it claims that she would be “rolling around in her grave” if she were to see the way they treated animals.

Some have said this is a tasteless exploitation of a dead woman. But PETA begs to differ.

According to the animal right’s agency, Arthur was a long time supporter of the organization, left money to them for use in the particular fight in question, and that her son enjoyed the tone of the ad.

“Death couldn’t stop this Golden Girl from fighting the Golden Arches’ cruel slaughter practices,” the ad proclaims, under a picture of the actress’ stern glare.

The ad began running in Chicago papers this morning.
