Well, it looks like PETA’s still on the warpath, asking the NFL to suspend quarterback Michael Vick without pay. And now, they’re profiting off the dogfighting allegations by selling “Sack Vick” T-shirts:
Whether Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is found guilty of dogfighting or not, he is only one person within a much larger struggle….Please call on people not only to condemn the NFL superstar for his alleged participation in this illegal activity but also to work to end dogfighting in our local communities. [emphasis mine]
Based on what PETA stands for, you wouldn’t imagine that they could be so controversial and disliked. But it’s stuff like this–profiting off a not-yet-proven-guilty person and the “Your Mommy Kills Animals” comic–that seems to repulse your average person.
Now that I’ve perhaps tainted your perceptions…how do you view PETA?
