Katherine Heigl - Katherine Heigl Poses Nude For 'I Hate Balls' Campaign

Katherine Heigl has stripped down in a bizarre photo-shoot for IHateBalls.com, a new website promoting the practise of snipping animal testicles. The Hollywood star is lending her celebrity status to the campaign, which seeks to fix the "pet overpopulation crisis" by selling t-shirts and underwear.
In a video message for IHateBalls, which has partned with FunnyorDie.com, Katherine reveals her reasons for signing up, saying, "I'm movie star and Maxim 100 member Katherine Heigl. I work with the Jason Debus Heigl foundation and a lot of people come up to me and say, 'Katherine, you promote neutering so much, you must really love animals.' But the real reason I want you to neuter your pets. I hate balls". In a photo shoot for the campaign, the Knocked Up star is photographed topless, holding on to a cuddly puppy. The real reason for her promotion of I Hate Balls has to do with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, named after her late brother, which seeks to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference and ignorance, according to US Weekly magazine.
Fans are being encouraged to donate $5 to the foundation, or to buy some of the underwear modelled by Heigl in the campaign. The Hollywood actress will next star in the 2012 action-comedy 'One for the Money', with Jason O'MARA.

Double standard here. They would never get away with an I hate ovaries campaign. Heigl's remarks are too vulgar to be made in public. No class at all. BTW, Kate, you wouldn't be here if there were no testicles. And did you hate your brother's testicles?

The "I hate balls" campaign is to try to promote neutering of pets! It has nothing to do with people. Something that the title does not include.

Heigl's program is laudable, but statistically it will not be very effective. Over 1,000,000 pets are on the loose each year, about 50% dogs and 50% cats. Cats are in great numbers because just a few cats can multiple to large numbers very quickly. But for dogs it's different. Dog breeds came into being when over 90% of America and Europe lived in rural areas. Now population sites have reversed. That is, dogs were never meant to be so pent up. They are descendants of wolves, as you probably well know. Most breeds worked or hunted outside. Even most cute lap dogs were actually hunters of smaller animals around the farm (rats, mice). Today, as you might guess, huge chains of nationwide pet stores market these outdoor creatures to our suburban homebody nation. The result is that sooner or later, dogs will bolt when pent up all day, no matter what the pet store guys say. Neutering is way too expensive to save 500,000 dogs per year. You have to go after the misrepresentations being foisted at the cash register, and at the farm size kennels that breed them. That is to say, don't buy a dog that is inappropriate for your living space, and for the amount of free time you can share with the dog. Thanks

I believe the I Hate Balls video and website are deeply offensive to men. The video hardly mentions pets, but certainly emphasizes castrating men. I cannot believe that any man who has lost one or both of his testicles to prostate or testicular cancer would find this anything but totally despicable. No doubt there are many who think this is hilarious, particularly women, who for reasons Ii do not get love to make men feel uncomfortable about their bodies. Yet I also know there are women and men who find this extremely distasteful, in which case, the cause for neutering will not benefit.

To the commenters that clearly can't read, mt100 is right! Ms. Heigl's campaign is about NEUTERING ANIMALS; it even says so in the article. You should read any article fully before giving your opinions.
