(Newser) PETA has long been a fan of using naked celebrities in its campaigns, and now it’s using dead celebrities, too. Bea Arthur stars in the latest ad, a full-pager in today’s Chicago Tribune protesting McDonald’s treatment of its chickens. Arthur, a long-time PETA supporter, even managed to pay for the ad from beyond the grave, through a gift left to PETA in her will.
