PETA Shows Their Stupidity Once Again Just In Case Assassin’s Creed IV Has Whaling In It

PETA Shows Their Stupidity Once Again Just In Case Assassin’s Creed IV Has Whaling In It

Look I believe in protecting animals as much as the next person, maybe even more so, but when it comes to absolutely over-the-top silliness when it comes to animal protection none are more ridiculous that PETA.

So what has the knickers of this looney-tune group up in arms now?

Well how about the possibility that the yet to be released Assassin’s Creed IV might have some whaling action it. I say might because no-one knows for sure or not whether the good Captain will be hurling any harpoons at any digital beasts of the sea.

The group’s assumption, and stupid outrage, is based on a bit of art from the game that shows a whale off the port bow of the Captain’s ship. This is what the group had to say about this atrocity:

Whaling—that is, shooting whales with harpoons and leaving them to struggle for an hour or more before they die or are hacked apart while they are still alive—may seem like something out of the history books, but this bloody industry still goes on today in the face of international condemnation, and it’s disgraceful for any game to glorify it. PETA encourages video game companies to create games that celebrate animals—not games that promote hurting and killing them.

I think I need a bottle of aspirin. Come on PETA get a grip on reality here would you, please.

    Well Steven, have you ever considered the idea that PETA members expect PETA to make a statement over glorifying whale slaughter? Doesnt it makes sense that an ANIMAL RIGHTS group make a statement about an act of cruelty that is so extreme that entire organizations are founded to prevent such atrocities? And if you truly believe in protecting animals, then let PETA do what they do. Because (believe it or not) PETA protects a whooooooole lot of animals.
