Let me tell you the least surprising thing you’ve heard all day…
PETA is back on their bullshit.
However, you may be surprised about their latest ridiculous move. Then again, maybe not…
According to the New York Post, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, AKA PETA, has decided to take some shots at clothing stores like Urban Outfitters, with the launch of their satirical store, Urban Outraged.
And the source of their new clothing line?
Yeah, remember Buffalo Bill’s human suit from the movie The Silence of the Lambs? Or Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Yeah, just like that… Kind of… except it’s “for sale.”
The shop claims to have clothing that’s “made of its finest leather,” like human faces…
PETA’s vice president Tracy Reiman says this is a shot at clothing companies who make clothing out of animal skin, and making an effort to see how people would feel if the roles were reversed:
“A cow’s skin belongs to her, and she feels fear and pain in a slaughterhouse every bit as much as you or I would.
PETA’s Urban Outraged challenges shoppers to see the individual behind every bit of animal skin on store racks and shelves.”
I mean c’mon, this is just ridiculous.
I thought their attempt of changing the baseball term “bullpen” to the “arm barn” was actually pretty cool… I mean, arm barn? How badass is that.
But this… this is just par for the course for PETA. Deranged shock value at its finest.
