First, she wore a dress made out of meat to the MTV Video Music Awards.
Then, she made the statement at a rally to repeal the military’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy, “Equality is the prime rib of America, but because I’m gay I don’t get to enjoy the greatest cut of meat my country has to offer.”
Needless to say, PETA is outraged.
We are not telling our members to kill her, but we’re also not telling them not to. ACTION is serious about saving the lives of animals from all carnivorous beasts.

We are a peaceful organization. We believe in the sacredness of all life. Except human life, but that’s not the point.
In her blog, You Are What You Eat, Which is Dead Meat, Emily Green posted her thoughts on Lady Gaga’s latest stunts.
