"Newly" married man Justin Bieber has been drooling over his gorgeous bride on social media, and you can't really blame him.
But he also purchased two very expensive, somewhat exotic cats -- and the ever-controversial PETA absolutely can blame him for that.
The Biebs is hitting back with a lengthy message explaining his reasoning. But he's also telling PETA to "suck it."
Okay, so first up, the cats -- the real heroes and possibly the only innocents in this story.
Justin has acquired two kittens, whom he has named Sushi and Tuna.
(One assumes that he tells them apart because Tuna is the one with more mercury content)
The two kittens are Savannahs, which are part domestic cat and part African Serval.
These cats are restricted in thirteen out of fifty states because they are considered "living room leopards."
The Biebs purchased the pair from a breeder for a combined $35,000.
"Baby, baby, baby, nooooooo.," PETA's President said in a truly cringe-worthy statement to People which made us physically recoil.
"Justin Bieber could inspire his fans around the world to save a life by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter," the statement suggested.
PETA continued: "rather than fueling the dangerous demand for hybrid cats."
The controversial organization accused the Biebs of "contributing to the animal overpopulation crisis."
"And proving that when it comes to helping animals," PETA declared. "His stance so far is ‘I don’t care."
"PETA can suck it," Justin Bieber announced.
No, that's not a literal invitation, so please do not show up at his house in PETA merch ready to take him up on it. He's married, folks.
"PETA go focus on real problems,” the Biebs then demanded in his Instagram Story. “Like poaching, and animal brutality."
"Ur tripping because I want a specific kind of cat?" he wrote in astonishment.
"U weren’t tripping when I got my dog Oscar and he wasn’t a rescue," Justin accuses.
"Every pet we get must be a rescue?" he asks.
The answer to that is 100% yes, by the way.
"I believe in adopting rescues," Justin expresses. "But also think there are preferences"
"And that’s what breeders are for," he surmises.
"PETA go help with all of the plastic in the ocean," Justin suggests. "And leave my beautiful cats alone."
"Sorry, Justin, but you must think more deeply about this issue," PETA fired back.
The new statement noted: "When millions of animals are losing their lives every year because not enough people adopt — choosing instead to shop."
"The animal overpopulation crisis is a ‘real problem,'" PETA argued. "That’s what ‘sucks.'"
"PETA urges you to spend just one hour in a municipal animal shelter with us," the statement continued.
"We think you’ll understand how hard it is to look into the animals’ eyes," PETA added.
"And know that because people pay breeders, many of them will pay with their lives,” PETA pointed out.
“You have the power to be a great role model on this issue," the statement continued.
"Your behavior guides that of tons of your fans," PETA concluded. "So please put that to good use."
PETA is known for off-putting campaigns that are pointlessly controversial and deeply misleading, possibly doing harm to animal rights causes.
They are technically right here, but is challening the Biebs on the issue the right way to change hearts and minds?
