Apparently not satisfied with their artistic endeavors in redesigning animal cracker boxes or crafting granite monuments to dead lobsters, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has entered the Halloween costume design business.
That’s right – for only $168.99 (not including shipping), you can purchase the limited-edition PETA costume featuring Donald Trump, Jr. with bloody camo, a sign that reads “half-cocked” and a plush leopard in a crouching position on the shoulder — a pose described as “letting the leopard win.”
PETA’s website describes the grizzly costume in detail and notes that all profits from the sales of the costume will go directly to support PETA’s lifesaving work for wild animals.
“There’s nothing more frightful than an entitled ghoul who gets his kicks from gunning down wild animals,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk on the website. “This Halloween, PETA will help people poke fun at someone who believes that the world and its wildlife are here for him to take.”
Donald Trump Jr. did not let the “honor” go without commenting on the absurdity of PETA’s claims.
The President’s son tweeted in response to PETA’s latest stunt: “Ironically, there are few orgs in world history that have as much animal blood on their hands as PETA. You hypocrites are literally an animal slaughter factory. In the last 11 years, PETA has killed 29,426 dogs, cats, rabbits, & other domestic animals," according to Yahoo News.
Trump added a link to a 2013 HuffPost article titled “Shocking photos: PETA’s secret slaughter of kittens and puppies.”
