PETA is well known for previous controversial advertisements showing the abuse to animals around the world. Their latest attempt is a proposal to put an ad on a US Airways aircraft that showed a seal next to blood-looking text stating, “Canada’s Olympic Shame – End the Seal Slaughter.”
No matter what you think about this topic, putting anything with “blood” on the side of a plane is not going to go over well. PETA wanted to put the ads on flights between the US and Canada in time for the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver, BC.
In February, US Airways also turned down an ad for PETA where they wanted to go after KFC for the way their treat their chickens.
Although in these hard economic times, it is hard for any airline to turn away extra money, I think US Airways probably made a smart decision.Source: Business First Image: ~C~U~B~B~I~E~
