Jessica Simpson: Pork-Free for Pet Pig?

Jessica Simpson: Pork-Free for Pet Pig?

Dog-owners wouldn’t be caught dead eating dog meat. So does that mean people with pet pigs should avoid pork?

Jessica Simpson is pondering this very question on Twitter, revealing: “I’m thinking about getting a pet pig. Does this mean I’ll have to give up pork?”

You might remember Jessica caused quite the controversy last year when she proudly wore the “Real Girls Eat Meat” shirt. Now, it looks like she’s having to decide whether she wants to honor the shirt or the animal.

Of course, PETA has some thoughts on this decision and told US Magazine: “Pigs, who are smarter than dogs and every bit as sensitive to pain and stress, don’t belong in Jessica’s stomach or carted around as her latest.”

What do you think about Jessica’s dilemma? Can she in good consciousness snack on a bacon sandwich while playing with her pet pig? Chime in and share your thoughts!

Just because she is going to be paid, big money, to lose weight, once she has her baby, doesn't mean she should eat like a "pig"!!!!!!!! She doesn't deserve a pet pig, they should only live with people that care about the animals!!!!!!!!!!!

I think we should all give up pork!! -whether or not we have a pig as a pet.

dosen't she have a bad track record with pets? (if so) the pig would be better off being eaten by her than treated as a disposable fad pet.

It may sound simple and not well thought out, but anything that raises the awareness of what's really on your plate should be considered beneficial. When I was young I was horrified to learn that the fried chicken on my plate was really a dead bird. Animals are not food! I commend her for drawing attention to the fact that what we eat is a living being. Give her credit. Even if she continues to eat pork, maybe someone else will give it up. This is a good thing!

“I’m thinking about getting a pet pig. Does this mean I’ll have to give up pork?” - well that about says it all, doesn't it? What a dope! If you have to ask the world what you should do about any particular thing then you obviously don't have a brain.

I hope to the Lord that she stops eating pork. And stops supporting the brutal slaughter and consumptions of Earthlings.
