Pamela Anderson's Airport PETA Ad Grounded

A racy animal rights advert featuring Pamela Anderson has been banned from an airport in Boston, Massachusetts after officials deemed the promo too risqué.
Anderson is seen posing as a scantily-clad member of airport security staff in the clip for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which was to be shown on Logan International Airport's Wi-Fi internet network. She is seen stripping passengers, including Jackass star Steve-O and comic Andy Dick, of their leather, fur and other animal products as they pass through security checks.
However, officials at the airport have banned the clip, claiming it is unsuitable to be seen by passengers, according to the Boston Herald.
A PETA spokesperson says, "Given the groping that you see at security checkpoints - and the nudity that you see in body scans - we're surprised that our lighthearted ad was deemed too risque."
Last year, the same advert was banned from all three New York City airports by officials amid fears it would offend passengers with young children.
