Pamela Anderson wore UGGs, those silly Eskimo-looking fur-lined boots, back when she was a star on Baywatch, and in doing so helped popularize the brand. Now, prominent PETA-spokeswoman Pamela is repudiating the footwear she helped make famous - because, she has discovered, the wool lining is backed with actual sheepskin.
"I'm getting rid of our Uggs," writes Pamela in her blog. "I feel so guilty for that craze being started around Baywatch days – I used to wear them with my red swimsuit to keep warm – never realizing that they were SKIN!"
Pamela goes on to explain how she thought the backing was synthetic, and the wool taken from sheep that were kindly sheared. Wrong, knucklehead. It was dead animal epidermis. Imagine Pam, some poor little sheep got flayed - probably alive - and you had its skin wrapped around your feet. I hope those boots kept your tootsies good and warm, Pam, considering that animals had to give their lives for them. Oh, and by the way Pam - your breast implants? Whale blubber. And your fake hair? It's from mermaids caught in tuna nets.
God Pam, is there anything you won't murder?
