The Trump Administration won't be remembered for being kind to animals.

In 2018, it launched a new effort to reinstate cruel hunting practices in Alaska that had been outlawed under Obama. Hunters will be able to shoot hibernating bear cubs, murder wolf and coyote cubs while in their dens, and use dogs to hunt black bears.

Not Safe for Work: PETA's About-to-Be Rejected Super Bowl Ad PETA's 2010 Super Bowl Ad

After getting so much publicity for getting their ad rejected last year, PETA has gone even farther with the "vegetables are sexy concept."

Last year, PETA's advertisement, entitled "Veggie Love" was rejected by NBC for being too graphic. "Veggie Love," which you can see below, features lingerie-clad models being sexy with vegetables, leading to the message that studies have found vegetarians have better sex lives.

This year, PETA is doubling down on the concept, submitting the casting videos for last year's ad. Much the same concept, this video is more explicit with the vegetable sex references.
