In a clash of the media-hungry, supremely unintelligent titans, PETA has a bone to pick with Sarah Palin after the most recent episode of her TLC reality show.
A hunting scene, hilariously prefaced by a "Viewer Discretion Advised" warning, aired Sunday on Sarah Palin’s Alaska. In it, the ex-gov bagged a caribou.
Never one to let an opportunity for publicity justice pass, PETA issued a statement condemning the show and the potential White House hopeful starring in it.
Sarah doesn't go hunting. That implies a chance of failure. Sarah goes KILLING.
“Sarah Palin seems to think that resorting to violence and blood and guts may lure people into watching her boring show,” said PETA V.P. Dan Mathews.
“But the ratings remain as dead as the poor animals she shoots.”
Ooh, that one hurts. Sort of inaccurate though, Dan. The show got 3.5 million viewers Sunday, up from 3 million the previous week. On TLC. It's a hit.
Sarah actually hasn't commented (give it an hour). But last weekend on Facebook, she wrote that “unless you’ve never worn leather shoes, sat on a leather couch or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight’s episode."
Here's the clip that has PETA so up in arms ...
Team Sarah or Team PETA?
