Tiger Woods joins the ranks of Alicia Silverstone and Tommy Lee with a new PETA -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals -- ad. You may be familiar with PETA ads featuring nude celebrities who are often overly retouched. Remember Pamela Anderson in a lettuce bikini? In most of their ads PETA has willing participants who support their views. That is not the case here. PETA told TMZ, "In light of conversations we have had with Mr. Woods' attorneys, plans to run our billboard are on hold at this time."
PETA has used the same slogan featured in the Woods ad -- "Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing" -- before. The previous ads with this headline featured posed shots of Jenna Jameson and Ron Jeremy, but both celebs are obviously more comfortable with publicizing their sex life.
The Tiger Woods ad is the latest in a string of PETA ads moving away from featuring scantily clad celebs and finding other ways to offend and shock viewers.
Michelle Obama did not approve of her image appearing in this ad, and her photo was subsequently removed.
This ad features nudity of course -- here Playboy model Joanna Krupa -- but the most controversial part of the ad was what she is wearing, a cross. The Catholic Church thought this ad went too far.
This ad offended many, including the overweight community. It was displayed on a Florida billboard but was quickly removed.
Again an ad offending the overweight community, not to mention making light of child abuse. This ad was produced by PETA UK.
