Yes, yes, yes, little Ms. Radical Macha loves the shit out of radical activists–including those that may or may not plaster photos of Gloria Anzaldua all over public property (ahem). So, my respect for Jessica I-may-or-may-not-like-being-Mexican-I’m-not-sure-yet Alba went up considerably when I read that she had done some vandalizing in the name of animal rights.
But then I read that I-believe-in-animal-rights-but-I-do-so-love-to-get-my-picture-taken Alba, well, was photographed doing her vandalizing–and that she even posed for the camera as well….and I was not quite so impressed any more.
Jessica Alba left many citizens of Oklahoma City seeing red white last week, when she blanketed the downtown area guerrilla-style with posters of great white sharks as part of an underground effort to draw attention to the predators’ dwindling population.
Unfortunately, the actress’ secret mission was outed yesterday, when photos of her plastering the posters around the city—and posing victoriously in front of a defaced United Way billboard—wound up online.
Ai, Jessica…I do so want to love you and hold you in my bosom. But you make it so difficult in so many ways. I must say though, I do like your hat.
