The Peta ad, which features the actress Alicia Silverstone naked getting out of a swimming pool was pulled by the Comcast Cable from the airwaves. The People Magazine reports:

PETA claims that Houston was chosen because it often ranks high on lists of cities with the worst eating habits. So why did Comcast pull the commercial?

A spokesperson for the cable company cited nudity in their decision to cancel the campaign, though the clips had already been paid for.

Curious Houston residents can still view the ads, online at, according to PETA president Ingrid Newkirk.

"[Viewers can] get an eyeful, not only of the stunning Ms. Silverstone, but also of our free Vegetarian Starter Kit – chock full of delicious recipes – that will make them drool for an entirely different reason," she said in a statement.

According to reports, the PETA ads will still run on television in Dallas.”
