PETA Hates Honey Boo Boo Child

A photo of Honey Boo Boo Child

How horrible, right? How could you hate an innocent little child like Honey Boo Boo? If you don’t like her, fine, or if you think she’s trashy, whatever. I see you up there on your high horse, I get it. But hate? That’s just sad.

It’s because she has a pet chicken. See that photo up there? The chicken’s name is Nugget. And PETA thinks that is the least cool thing to name a pet chicken.  They want her to rename the chicken “Not A Nugget,” which for some reason just isn’t as catchy, and they want Honey Boo Boo to teach her family and all her friends that “they should be nice to chickens by not eating them.”

They also let her know that there are some super tasty vegan-chicken nuggets in grocery stores, which have the fun and deliciousness of chicken nuggets without the slaughter. They sent her some of those nuggets, along with a shirt with a chicken on it that reads “I am not a nugget.”

Oh, PETA. Stay classy.

  • As a animal lover, PETA hurts the cause rather than helps with stupid waste of time comments like this. They need to go help animals in real need.

  • You know, PETA is doing a good thing for all the animals who don’t have a voice, but when they do shit like this, it’s just idiotic. Just STFU.. seriously. Need to draw the line somewhere.

  • I had a friend who named her beta fish “Sushi.” I thought it was funny but a bunch of her friends thought she was insensitive and cruel, even though that set regularly did eat sushi.

  • It’s probably true. Those fucking people will probably eat that chicken one day. Society is fucked when we, including me, waste our time talking about this trash.

  • In my frat house eons ago, we had 2 pot bellied pigs… One named Pork Chop and the other Lunchmeat…. Wonder what the PETA warriors would say to that?

      • Any stray cats that showed up were named amusing things like…. “House combo #1″ or “with 3 you get egg roll”…. Yes, I know….there are tons of cat lovers on this site & Im sure Ive alienated them as well as the PC crowd….. I’m an ecumenical asshole….

  • A teacher at my secondary school used to keep chickens as pets. She was vegetarian but her beloved birds were still called “Chicken Tikka, Chicken Balti” and “Chicken Korma” :’) PETA needs to get a grip.

  • Moronic name for the bird indeed. But that pimped out child is referred to as ‘Honey Boo Boo” Umm, therefore, it is no surprise that they lack imagination or kindness in choosing a name for an animal companion.

    PETA is far from perfect, but in a world that abuses animals in so many ways, it is nice when any organization does accomplish in the assistance of any animal in need & they have done many positive things.

    As Gandhi most famously stated: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

    • Oh I agree it’s important to treat animals well. I don’t regard treating animals well as putting down over 90% of the animals that come into your care though, but apparently PETA does. Many organisations work on the basis they never put a healthy animal down. If PETA adopted that approach maybe then I’d have warmer feelings towards them.

      • The animals they put down are not healthy actually. Once it’s bad enough for PETA to take over and the law to permit it, the animals are usually in dire straits.

  • I understand PETA wants to help ALL animals. I do too. However, I feel PETA is a bit over the top on this one. PETA just needs to pipe down a notch. She’s a little girl. It’s not nice to bully people PETA. Have you not seen the tv ads?

  • The title of the article says PETA hates HBB but nothing they’ve done, according to the article, screams hate to me….sending her a T-shirt, asking her to encourage her family not to eat chicken. It’s not exactly leaving a burning cross…

  • What in the world does Honey boo Boo Child have to do with chickens? If anything, rather or not that family eats chicken is the least of their worries. I would say the two most important priorities they should have are losing weight and learning good manners. The mother of that family does not even act like a mother. In fact, she is sometimes worse than the children. I mean, you cannot accuse Honey Boo Boo Child, or Alana as I like to call her, for the way she acts. If you want to point the finger at someone, point it at the parents. I just feel sorry for the new addition to the family, that poor innocent baby is in for a bad life!!
