After a season of high-stepping on Dancing With The Stars, Playboy model Joanna Krupa is stripping off in an effort to make animal lovers think twice before buying a pup from a pet store.
Unfortunately for the Polish-born blonde, The Catholic Church isn’t as gung-ho about animals as she is. Some church officials are beside themselves with fury that Joanna is showing her privates under the guise of a Heavenly Angel.
Joanna, who bared all for the December issue of Playboy, appears as a winged angel, covered by a carefully-placed crucifix, in a saucy new billboard in conjunction with animal rights group People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The stunner — who own four pooches of her own — unveiled the poster outside a Barkworks Store in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
“It’s totally inappropriate,” said Deal Hudson, publisher of InsideCatholic.com, an online magazine. “It’s another instance of disrespect toward Christianity and another example of the kind of abuse that would never occur with any other major religion, because the outcry would be so immediate and so loud that the people behind it would immediately retreat.”
Nonetheless, Joanna stands by the PETA poster: “We’re trying to spread the word that breeding isn’t the way to go. Somebody needs to put their foot down and stop this breeding and these puppy mills… It makes me so angry that our government doesn’t do anything about it. So I am!”
