What a hypocrite
If it wouldn’t be a violation of the First Amendment, I think I could support banning all forms of social media that allows spewing hate while sitting anonymously behind a cell phone or computer.
This year, Pamela Anderson has received a lot of hateful social media posts because of her Halloween costume.
The 52-year-old former Playboy model posted two black-and-white photos of her skin-baring costume.
Anderson wore a Chinese-made imitation of a Native America feather headdress and white thong panties. Instead of a shirt, her chest was covered only with white paint.
The response she wanted from the racy photos was “She still looks pretty good for 52.” I thought maybe she was dressing in her version of an Elizabeth Warren costume.
But in the social media world of whiners the easily offended declared her costume was racist and cultural appropriation. These same people will wear green and drink green beer on St. Patrick’s Day and never think of that as cultural appropriation
None of those trashing Anderson that I saw were actually Native Americans. They just seemed to think Anderson’s publicity stunt some how hurt the feelings of those it is no longer politically correct to call Indians.
The imported headdress Anderson wore was made from fake leather, what looked like duck and turkey feathers with a few plastic beads added. A real head dress is made from buffalo hide and eagle feathers.
It is Illegal to possess eagle feathers under federal law. Since Anderson hasn’t been arrested for possession of such feathers, we know these weren’t real eagle feathers.
Anderson has built her television and movie career on her large breasts, which she is not afraid to expose.
She initially became famous after being picked as the Playboy centerfold for the February 1990 issue. She holds the record for being the model on the most Playboy magazine covers.
The Canadian-born actress played Lisa on the award-winning ABC comedy series Home Improvement. Her biggest starring role was as C.J. Parker on Baywatch.
She has appeared in a handful of movies such as “Barb Wire,” based on the independent comic book character.
Anderson is a high-visibility member of PETA — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
In 2003, Anderson was photographed naked as part of PETA’S “I’d Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur” advertising campaign.
In 2006, Anderson posed naked with other protesters on a window display of the London boutique.
Anderson, who was there for the PETA Humanitarian Awards, went inside the boutique and said she would take her clothes off if the event raised enough money for PETA. It did. She did.
In 2001, Anderson released a letter in support of PETA’S campaign against Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants.
Her letter said “What KFC does to
750 million chickens each year is not civilized or acceptable.” She later made a video about KFC’S treatment of chickens.
In January 2006, Anderson requested that the governor of Kentucky remove a bust of KFC founder Col. Harland Sanders from the state Capitol. She even offered her own bust — one made of bronze — in exchange for removing Sanders’ bust. The governor turned down that offer.
There actually was a reason for people on social media to call Anderson a hypocrite, but not because her costume was somehow racist.
She opposes wearing fur. She opposes cooking chickens with 11 herbs and spices.
Isn’t it hypocritical of her to wear a Native American headdress made of duck and turkey feathers?
Just like the chickens cooked in either the original or extra crispy recipe, those birds had to die so their feathers can be used in that headdress.
The idea that somehow “it’s wrong unless it benefits me” is always wrong and hypocritical.
