Tamara Ecclestone Tells the Naked Truth About Foie Gras
|Tamara Ecclestone for PETA |
Update: As new ambassador for PETA's foie gras campaign, Tamara certainly got off to a good start. Read more about how she managed to get Virgin, Mercedes, Red Bull Racing and many others to stop serving foie gras!
Gorgeous Italian Formula 1 Sky TV presenter and daughter of F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, Tamara Ecclestone has posed for a new PETA ad with the tagline "The Naked Truth: Foie Gras Is Torture in a Tin". This isn't the first time the delectable Tamara has bared all for animals – she previously starred in a hugely popular ad against fur.
Tamara knows that to produce foie gras, ducks and geese are force-fed by having metal pipes shoved down their throats. Corn mush is pumped into their stomachs two or three times a day every day for weeks.
Read an interview with Tamara in the Sunday Mirror Online.
"As you can imagine, this is frightening and extremely distressing for the birds", Tamara states in her interview with PETA. "The pipes sometimes puncture their throats, causing severe injuries that make it painful or even impossible for them to drink. As a result of the force-feeding the birds’ livers become diseased and painfully enlarged, swelling to as much as 10 times their normal size."
Pledge to Leave Foie Gras off Your Plate
I pledge never to purchase, eat or recommend to friends the vile product known as foie gras, which is produced by force-feeding ducks and geese until their livers grow painfully large and swollen.
