"World Sexiest" astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) in @PETA ad

PETA truly reached for the stars when it recruited the "World's Sexiest Astrophysicist" for its new ad campaign. The director of New York City's Hayden Planetarium and host and PBS's "Nova ScienceNow" says that "kindness is a virtue" and that people need to show greater compassion to all living creatures. PETA has been busy lately. In July, its activists picketed the film 'Zookeeper' over animal abuse allegations, saying that a giraffe "spent the last few months of his life confined to a 20-foot-by-20-foot stall." They've also been emailing me with requests to investigate local accusations on animal abuse. With recruits like DeGrasse Tyson, I might consider it.
