Major airports in New York, North Carolina and Las Vegas are rejecting a proposed ad campaign from PETA that makes light of body scan machines used at airport security checkpoints.
The ads from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals features a scan of a curvaceous woman in lacy underwear with the message: ‘Be Proud of Your Body Scan: Go Vegan.’
Major airports in Las Vegas, Charlotte, N.C., and New York City refused to display the ads designed to entice holiday travelers waiting in security lines.
Officials with McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas said its policy prohibits political ads.
PETA Vice President Dan Matthews said the ads were meant to be humorous. He said PETA has not taken a political position on airport security measures.
