Joanna Krupa: PETA Porn?

Posted Wednesday December 2, 2009 3:48 PM GMT

Stepping out in support of her latest PETA campaign, Joanna Krupa was spotted at the Westside Pavilion in Los Angeles yesterday (December 1).

The former Playboy Playmate spoke with the press and greeted fans as she introduced her new ‘angelic’ poster for the animal rights organization.

And though Miss Krupa says she’s perfectly comfortable appearing nude on the advertisement, many Christians are taking issue with the fact that she’s holding a crucifix to cover her breasts and genitals in the picture.

One protester told FOX Pop Tarts, "It's totally inappropriate. It's another instance of disrespect toward Christianity and another example of the kind of abuse that would never occur with any other major religion, because the outcry would be so immediate and so loud that the people behind it would immediately retreat."

Krupa shot back, "I think worrying about going topless in a photo shoot or film is really ridiculous. And the fact is, Pope John Paul said, since we were born naked, it is art, and it's just showing a beautiful body that God created."
