Ellen DeGeneres and Tim Gunn named PETA's people of the year

UPI News Service, 01/02/2010 

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said U.S. TV personalities Ellen DeGeneres and Tim Gunn are PETA's Woman and Man of the Year.

The animal rights group said in a release Wednesday that DeGeneres earned her award for promoting awareness of animal issues on her TV talk show and Web site.

Gunn, a mentor on the TV series "Project Runway," was honored for narrating a PETA video on animal rights violations and for his outspoken opposition to the use of fur.

"Wearing fur is like wearing a big sign reading, 'I'm in favor of inflicting cruelty and pain on animals as a fashion statement.' Unspeakable torture is inflicted on dogs, cats, bunnies, raccoons, foxes, minks, and myriad trapped, helpless creatures in the name of fashion--yes, dogs and cats," Gunn said recently.
