PETA U.K.’s dead-serious anti-obesity
is stirring up some weighty controversy:
U.K. erected the billboard near a new mortuary in Gloucester built especially to
accommodate obese corpses. Oddly, the U.K.’s National Obesity Forum labeled the
ad as “irresponsible,” although the group didn’t say what exactly it objected
to. We’re not sure why an obesity-awareness group would take issue with a billboard
that aims to help people deal with obesity pre-coffin, but protesters ripped
down part of the sign (unhelpfully revealing an ad for chips—or French fries to us in the U.S.).
an obesity-awareness group’s protest of an obesity-awareness sign somewhat akin
to Shopaholics Anonymous holding meetings at the mall?
