PETA Attacks Mario For Wearing Tanooki Fur


Check the story out at Forbes, and the PETA game here!

Quote:
“Tanooki may be just a “suit” in Mario games, but by wearing the skin of an animal, Mario is sending the message that it’s OK to wear fur. We created our game to help inform people that in real life, Mario would be wearing the skin of an animal who was beaten, strangled or electrocuted, and it wouldn’t give him any special powers other than the power of self-deception.
I need to make a bacon cheese burger, and try the game.

I wonder if PETA got that case of deer costumes we sent them for hunting season?

I'm a pretty liberal guy, living in hippie-town Seattle, eating my veggie burgers, pining over a Prius and all that stuff...

But sometimes I just wonder if PETA's plan is to intentionally get everybody to hate them. Seriously...

They just want attention. Half of the fucking game you are stomping turtles to death. Also Tanooki suit is how old again? Also it IS okay to wear fur suits and if someone were to drop blood on my clothing I would fucking stab them.

It could be worse. Peta could crash The Old Republic's launch and throw paint all over the Ewoks and Wookies. I'd subscribe to that live feed.

That rendition of Mario looks like something out of South Park. This thread is also proof that those who hate Peta are actually their biggest fans.

Why am I always more offended by PETA stuff than the stuff that they're protesting? Seriously, take a childhood classic from more than a decade ago and deface it to prove a point? Hell, if they wanted to get with the times, go protest skyrim or something. You can spend all day skinning animals that you've just brutally murdered, and use their skins to skill up.

It took PETA what, 23 years to catch on to this? Did they just defrost a bunch of people from 1988 without giving them a chance to catch up on current events? Jeez, someone's a little behind the pack.

Peta are huge fucking hypocrites. Equal rights for animals? Are you fuckin' serious?


True story: back in my rave / dj days a peta hippie came to my house and "freed" my cat. Never saw it again.

I did though get my revenge and it was very sweet. If your going to fuck around with people- maybe you shouldn't go see them a month later at a party and drop lots of acid because it makes easy for people like me to really fuck with them.

Isn't the suit he wears considered a "costume"?

At least that is what I took it as. But I have to agree, I am always more angry at shit like this, then what they are really protesting. PETA, you continue to make the worst points.

PETA makes a valid point here as the radical right wing game industry is brainwashing young, impressionable kids into the desiring fur products! At least they have a sense of humor and give us a free game to play

What a bunch of fucking losers.

This looks like something someone would inject into their site to discredit them...if this is their own creation they don't need to worry about that happening from the outside.

Question: Why would they single out the Tanooki suit, but not the Frog suit, the Bumblebee suit, the Penguin suit, or the Rabbit ears? For that matter, Mario has to murder Kuribo to get inside his shoe, and the Hammer suit presumably belonged to a tool-tossing turtle at some point who was doubtless eviscerated for his outerwear.

Why just the outrage over killing the Tanooki racoon/wombat/whatever? Answer: Because raccoons (wombats, whatever) are cute. Hypocrites.

And you probably shouldn't leave incriminating evidence on your Facebook account >_>
