Katy Perry "Roar" Video: Slammed By PETA!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Katy Perry’s new single, “Roar,” is a smash big hit with her fans.

Not so much with PETA, due to its jungle-themed music video.

The animal rights group is slamming the use of the creatures in Perry’s video, which features the singer cavorting with monkeys, elephants and tigers.

“Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods,” a PETA spokesman said.

The group added of the animals, “They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.”

The group, long-critical of animal rights practices in Hollywood, suspects animal exhibitor Serengeti Ranch was behind the Katy Perry “Roar” video.

According to PETA, Serengeti Ranch is an organization that “has been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture 22 times since 2001.”

In any case, “Roar” sold over 559,000 copies and became a No. 1 hit for Perry, who was heralded by PETA for her vegetarian lifestyle in the past.

She's no longer a "champion" in their eyes, however. But does she care? Perry has yet to respond to the group's criticism about the video's animals.

Not really a Katy Perry fan, but I am now! People need to know the truth about PETA. They are one big lie, as bad as any hate or terrorist group!
