• Pam Anderson Tosses a Bucket of Cold Water on The Ice Bucket Challenge

    She just froze 'em out


    We’ve now seen everyone from Charlie Sheen to former President George W. Bush accept The Ice Bucket Challenge, which is intended to raise money for ALS research. We’ve even seen the hottie-of-the-moment herself, Kate Upton, taking part. But don’t expect fellow beauty Pam Anderson to jump in the game. She’s now made it abundantly clear that she doesn’t want any part of dumping ice-water on her lovely golden locks. Why? Because she’s an animal lover, and according to her, The ALS Association…is not.

    Sorry, I can’t bring myself to do your Ice bucket challenge,” Pam posted to her Facebook page. “Digging a bit deeper, I found that we may not be aligned in our messages.”

    But she didn’t stop there. The 47-year old actress and model went nearly Beast Mode on ALS, as she assailed what she believes to be unethical practices, mainly animal testing. “Mice had holes drilled into their skulls, were inflicted with crippling illnesses, and were forced to run on an inclined treadmill until they collapsed from exhaustion,” she wrote. “Monkeys had chemicals injected into their brains and backs and were later killed and dissected.” She then issued her own “challenge” to ALS to stop animal testing altogether. “Trying to cure human diseases by relying on outdated and ineffective animal experiments isn’t only cruel – it’s a grave disservice to people who desperately need cures,” she said.

    I don’t know how The Ice Bucket Challenge can possibly survive without the blessing and support of this Baywatch belle, but I predict that The Internets will find a way to cope.
