PETA Ramps Up Pressure Against CareerBuilder
You have played a vital role in our campaign against CareerBuilder, and together, we've really gotten the word out about the company's cruel chimpanzee-exploiting ad! Check out some highlights below and then give yourself a nice long pat on the back:
So far, 31,000 people have taken action against CareerBuilder online at PETA.org.
***PLS SIGN :
On Super Bowl Sunday, several PETA supporters changed their Facebook profile pictures to chimpanzee avatars and took over the CareerBuilder Facebook page.
PETA activists made a splash outside CareerBuilder headquarters in Chicago
and Atlanta, wearing chimpanzee masks and holding protest signs.
When the ad aired, Advertising Age,
the leading publication in the ad industry, published an article on PETA's CareerBuilder campaign
and our successes in getting advertising agencies to adopt policies that prohibit the use of chimpanzees in ads. That same day, Advertising Age also published an editorial piece titled, "Memo to Adland: Enough With the Monkey Business," which strongly condemned CareerBuilder's ad.
The Christian Science Monitor
reached tens of thousands when it wrote, "Chimpanzees used in commercials are mostly infants and juveniles who were taken away from their mothers ... so they can be trained to perform for entertainment and advertising. ... Since they usually only have a working 'shelf life' of about 6 to 8 years (while still juveniles), they rarely can be handled and worked as adolescents and adults, and most often end up discarded out of show business."
Anywhere CareerBuilder turns, opposition to its abuse of chimpanzees stands strong.
We are right on the company's heels, and we can't let up now!
Chimpanzees who have suffered at the hands of CareerBuilder deserve a chance at a normal life..
Will you continue in the fight against CareerBullies?
