Quotables: PETA Blasts Mischa Barton for Being Insensitive to Cows

“This raw meat stuff is getting old and may not only hurt and kill cows, it may hurt Mischa, because so much meat is infected with salmonella, E. coli, and campylobacter that licking it is like licking a toilet. In addition to this being completely unoriginal, it’s completely callous—flesh from a tortured animal isn’t a joke, isn’t camp, and isn’t cool. Meat is full of blood, is produced with violence, and causes great suffering.”

OK, so while I agree that licking raw meat (ugh, I shudder to think of it) is completely gross and it’s probably as good as licking a toilet, the part about being callous and insensitive to cows is RIDICULOUS. I mean, I eat meat, so now does that make me uncool? Insensitive? VIOLENT and WILLING TO EMBRACE GREAT BOVINE SUFFERING?

Please, PETA. Get over yourselves, because though there are many out there who support you, there are just as many (like myself) who think you’re a bunch of over-bored nut jobs. Please excuse me while I go make a smorgasbord of sausage, steak, ham, bacon, and scrapple for breakfast. I’m feeling the need for a juicy, grass-fed ANIMAL this morning.

  • Peta really needs to push the fact that eating meat isn’t sustainable and contributes to climate change more than this whole animal cruelty angle, because that’s gotten them as far as it’s ever going to, already.

  • PETA can be dumb as shit but your last sentence is disgusting and disrespectful.

    Go fuck yourself. I hope someone skins you and eat you.

    • As long as it’s Ryan Gosling or Adrien Brody (or hell, even someone who looks like either of them), I’m totally on board.
