PETA, What Are You Thinking Running This Karen Black Billboard Again?

In August, we lost actress Karen Black.  The star of horror films like House of 1,000 Corpses and Burnt Offerings passed away after battling cancer.

So, color me surprised when, prowling Instagram, I came across the this image from pal “BossJacko”: A billboard featuring Black, hugging a gravestone as part of the “I wouldn’t be caught dead in fur” campaign.”  The ad is hanging prominently over some Los Angeles street and to see it up now is awfully…macabre.

Granted, Black posed for the campaign in a graveyard sometime in 2006.  To see it exhumed now is odd.  Perhaps those at PETA were doing it in reverence, but I know I’m not the only one scratching my head about this.

Get a better look at the ad inside.
