PETA versus Perry

PETA have issued a statement about Katy Perry's Roar video. Of course they're not happy. PETA only issue statements when they're unhappy:

“Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods,” a PETA spokesman said in a statement. “They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.”

The group, long-critical of animal rights practices in Hollywood, suspects Perry worked with animal exhibitor Serengeti Ranch on the “Roar” video which, according to PETA, “has been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture 22 times since 2001.”
PETA - whose twin aims are persuading celebrities to take their clothes off and killing hundreds of healthy animals every year, had once been pleased with Perry because she was a celebrity vegetarian.

Trouble is, when people adopt poses because they're fashionable, they're just as likely to take up a contrary stance when fashion dictates. PETA might be discovering the weakness in their business model.
