Why does PETA act like such idiots?

They are ‘enraged’ that a video game character gains special abilities from a tanooki suit. A suit that made its first appearance (to my knowledge) on November 21, 1990 in the game Super Mario World.

Not that I dont find what theyre saying as absolutely ludicrous…..but where was their outrage then?

Where was their outrage when Mario Brothers was released on June 1, 1983? I mean, Mario started jumping on turtles then….Where was their outrage when Mario put on a frog suit so he could swim?

PETA needs to get a grip. A video game character cannot be pro-fur. You know why? Because its a game!
