White House unhappy with Michelle Obama PETA Ad

The White House is not happy with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals using First Lady Michelle Obama’s image in their new ads.

The Chicago Tribune reported that the new campaign: “Fur-free and fabulous” did not have the right to use Obama’s picture.

While Obama’s press secretary has said that the first lady does not wear fur, she is not able to make such an endorsement. PETA put the First Lady on the ads because of a previous White House confirmation that Obama is not a fur-wearer.

The ad has Obama appearing with talk show host Oprah Winfrey, country singer Carrie Underwood and Tyra Banks and appears on the DC Metro and in magazines. Winfrey was named PETA’s “Person of the Year” in 2008. She earned the honor for her efforts to educate against puppy mills.
