PETA activists return to their birth names

Filed under: Activism
Karin Robertson, again.

Karin Robertson, again.

Remember back in 2003 when Karin Robertson, then a young PETA employee, legally changed her name to GoVeg.com in order to raise public awareness of the website? Did you know that in Fall 2005 she was followed by fellow PETA employees Chris Garnett, who became KentucyFriedCruelty.com, and Brandi Valladolid, who became RinglingBeatsAnimals.com?

Sadly, The Virginian-Pilot reports Robertson and Garnett have abandoned their website monikers. Garnett returned to his birth name after experiencing difficulties when applying for a passport. Robertson, who is no longer employed at PETA, changed her name once again in July. “I never thought I would be Goveg.com forever,” said Robertson. “It was just a great way to pique people’s interest.”
