One such organization that behaves in this way is the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which has such a long string of mind-bogglingly silly publicity stunts to its name that they could fill several books. From their biology-defying decision to try to market fish as “Sea Kittens,”to the numerous models they dress in nothing but leaves, to the embarrassing street theater that they engage in while dressed like overgrown Peep marshmallows, PETA will likely go down in history as the only freak show to ever successfully make its living as a nonprofit.
But now PETA has decided to take on a new target – celebrity chefs – and have done so with a video that is simultaneously so ghoulishly hilarious and so unimaginably offensive that we have no choice but to report it. The Braiser reports:
The animal rights group recently launched its Silent Scream campaign targeting Fox, Gordon Ramsay, and Hell’s Kitchen. Apparently, they’d like Fox to air their latest PSA featuring “groundbreaking new fish empathy” propaganda during Hell’s Kitchen commercial breaks, in an effort to parallel the silent screams of all those dying fishies to the distinctly audible screams of Gordon Ramsay. Huh?
How disturbed are these people? To compare such horrible acts of violence against people to cooking a fish? Really? Can you say moral retardation?
