American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken has declared war on animal rights organisation PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS (PETA) over a cheeky ad in which the activists suggest he has been neutered.

PETA hit back at Aiken after he confessed he hated cats in a ROLLING STONE interview, going so far as to wish them all death.

They've launched a new ad campaign starring puppet dog TRIUMPH and featuring the slogan, "Get neutered, it didn't hurt Clay AIKEN."

Aiken is demanding PETA bosses change the ad or he'll take the animal lovers to court.
