PETA Replaces Tiger Woods With Gov. Mark Sanford on Sex Billboard
So Tiger Woods wil not be featured on a PETA billboard after all. The animal rights group announced last week it would put up a billboard in Florida featuring Woods with the text: "Too much sex can be a bad thing." It was meant to encourage people to spay and neuter their pets.
But according to a report on Page Six of the New York Post:
Lawyers for the horndog golfer threatened to sue the activists if they used his once-valuable image in their campaign urging owners to neuter their pets. So now PETA says it will feature another famous philanderer, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, with the possible tagline: "Your dog doesn't have to go to South America to get laid."
A PETA source told Page Six, "We were contacted by Tiger's lawyers at IMG who kindly, but firmly, told us we were not authorized to use his image on the billboard, and would we desist. We agreed and have now turned the focus of our campaign to Mark Sanford."
