Casey Affleck's PETA ad banned

Casey Affleck's new ad for PETA has been banned by TV networks nationwide, including stations in his native Boston.

In a bid to show Food Network viewers what happens to animals before they’re fried, filleted, and fricasseed on TV, PETA tried to buy time during the network’s cooking programs for the 30-second ad, but advertising execs didn't have the stomach for it.

PETA then tried to place the ad on various major channels, including all eight broadcast stations in Boston. Ad execs who rejected the spot said that the scenes of animals in factory farms and slaughterhouses that flash across the screen as Affleck explains why he is a vegetarian were "too graphic."

Of course they banned it. Do you think the money makers are going to stand for their public being put off their valubale income??? It is to ographic, especially for little kids, and the lines would be in a frenzy with the amount of calls coming in to complain about the ads. Put them in MAGAZINES, newspapers, toilet rooms, MALLS.
