Hollywood’s Walk of Shame

Posted on May 17, 2012

While Hollywood is often known for being generous to causes, a growing legion of well-known entertainment stars is also anti-hunting and opposed to trapping. They show their animal rights leanings by supporting the Humane Society of the United States. That radical animal rights group then recognizes the stars with a Genesis Award for being “one their own.”

Here’s the newest Genesis Award list or as we call it, Hollywood’s Walk of Shame:

  • Ellen DeGeneres—talk show host
  • Ian Somehalder—the Vampire Diaries
  • Carrie Ann Inaba—Dancing with the Stars

Other media and music attendees at the March 2012 HSUS Genesis Awards included: John Bernthal, Kaley Cuoco, Penelope Ann Miller, Colbie Caillat, Sophia Bush, Ke$ha, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Rose McGowan, Wendie Malick, Jason Ritter, Fiona Gubelmann,  Pauley Perrette, Wilmer Valderrama and Michael Vartan. Also present and active were: Bill Maher (TV) and Cloris Leachman (former TV star).

Also winning HSUS awards were: Animal Planet TV show, Vanity Fair magazine, Hawaii Five-O TV show, 20/20, ABC, and NBC Nightly News. Each one of those featured favorable programming and comments for the HSUS, so viewer beware.

Among the noted financial supporters and donors were: Honda (automobiles), National Hot Rod Association, PETCO, Fred Myer Jewelers, Frey Vineyards, Wilson Creek Winery, and IMAX/Warner Brothers (movies).
