The folks in charge of PETA love all of God's creatures—with a few notable exceptions. Asked by BlackBook whether the animal-rights group opposes human cannibalism, Dan Mathews, the group's outrage-provoking vice president, quips, "No, as long as the person being eaten is Anna Wintour."

It's far from the first time PETA has gone after the Vogue editor in chief, whom it accuses of doing more than anyone else to keep the wearing of animal pelts in style. On, the group brags about its many anti-Wintour offensives, which includes sending her flowers after the death of her father with a note imploring her to consider "all the animals who lose their parents because of the insensitivity of people who still promote fur."

Mathews also uses the interview to defend his statement that Andrew Cunanan deserved to be named man of the year for getting designer Gianni Versace to stop using fur—by killing him. "I ended up getting a lot of work from that," he says.
