Kesha Works With PETA to Raise Awareness About Cruelty Against Baby Seals
Kesha says Canada’s club scene sucks, and as one of pop music’s top dance artists, she should know what she’s talking about. But she’s not referring to dance clubs — she’s talking about the clubbing of baby seals, which she denounces in a new PETA ad.
The print ad explains further: “Canada’s nightlife rules, but clubbing seals is cruel and wastes millions of tax dollars. Join us in ending the baby-seal slaughter for good.”
In a statement, Kesha says, “I was lucky enough to get to watch a bunch of wild seals recently and truly fell in love with these amazing creatures … The Canadian seal slaughter is barbaric and archaic. My music and my fans are part of a movement of youth taking over the world with positive change. I know they’ll help me and PETA ban the Canadian seal slaughter so the only place you see baby seal fur is in a museum.”
Kesha has a reputation for looking out for animal rights. Last year, after reports suggested she wore fur on The Wendy Williams Show, she tweeted that she only wears fake fur. A few months later, she donated 1,000 pounds of pet food to the Nashville Metro Animal Shelter.
Kesha joins a number of other musicians who have lent their support to the animal rights organization. Last month, rapper Waka Flocka Flame showed some PETA love by appearing nude in an ad for the animal rights organization. Others who have assisted PETA include Pink, Lady Gaga and Sarah McLachlan.
