POSTERS FEATURING Pamela Anderson in a bikini have been banned in Canada for being sexist. The poster is part of a PETA campaign to encourage meat-lovers to give it up and go vegetarian. City officials in Montreal banned the actress from launching the campaign poster in their city, the CTV Montreal reports.

The poster features Anderson marked out like cuts of meat with the tagline “All animals have the same parts.”

The city commissioner said that while the poster was not in itself controversial, it went against the “everlasting battle of equality” between the sexes, the Toronto Sun reports. Pamela, a Canadian, was less than pleased with the ban. She expressed surprise that a city known for its exotic dancing and progressive attitude would ban a woman using her body for political protest.
