    Default Beyonce ambushed by PETA

    Beyonce Ambushed by PETA at Nobu

    Posted Jun 15th 2006 9:35PM by TMZ Staff
    Beyonce was confronted Thursday night at the swanky restaurant Nobu in New York City by two members of People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The two had won an eBay auction, benefiting VH1's Save the Music Foundation, to dine with the star. Beyonce had no idea they were PETA members.


    TMZ obtained video of the confrontation, shot by PETA, taped inside the restaurant. As they sat at the table, Beyonce, who has a fashion line with her mother that uses fur, had no idea what was coming. After placing their orders, the PETA members confronted the singer.
    The PETA members then pulled out a portable DVD player and began playing a tape of Pamela Anderson's attack on the fur industry, which highlights graphic footage of the process of killing animals for their fur.

    Also present at the table -- Beyonce's mother Tina and her sister Solange.

    The PETA members were swiftly escorted out of the restaurant. Beyonce and her relatives stayed inside.
    Calls to Beyonce's reps were not immediately returned.

    I understand that the PETA people feel very passionate about their cause, but what on earth do they expect to achieve by doing this? There has to be a better way of raising awareness.

    I hope Human Rights activists are passionate enough to do the same things to celebs who supports wars.

    Well, yes, obviously and I agree with them as far as that goes! I just don't see that ambushing someone with a video is going to be a particularly effective method although I don't know what would be.

    I know this is a hot button topic on here, but I have to agree with twitchy. People who eat meat and/or wear fur are not going to change their minds through ambush tactics, partially because of the aggressive tactic used. It just makes people dig their heels in more.

    but PETA isn't against eating meat but against the mistreating of slaughtering of animals as far as i know.

    It just turns them in to a bigger enemy imo.

    Yep.

    Most of you already know my opinion on this, so I'm not gonna harp on it. There is many many better ways to make you point then to be ambushing a celebrity. You can be sure that Beyonce will think hard about doing a "meet your fans" event again, and I am sure that many other celebs don't do these things because of bullshit like this.

    We all know cruelty is bad, but I will defend to the best of my ability anyones right to eat meat, wear fur, have an abortion, be gay, enlist, protest the war etc etc.

    Fanatics of this world are responsible for almost all the discourse and wars in the world, we need an island just for all these assholes, let them ambush each other and leave the rest of us alone.

    PETA is known for being highly aggressive. Unfortunately, they won the dinner, they should not have been thrown out, sorry!
