PETA’s Fur-Wearing Mario Outrage Is "An Epic Cultural Misunderstanding"

The People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is expressing outrage over Mario's Tanooki Suit. That outrage is not only misplaced, but shows PETA's complete lack of cultural understanding—traditional or contemporary.

The story is too old to be commented.

They are about 18 years late on this one, this country is filled to the brim with complete morons.

They had no problems for the past 30 years that poor Donkey Kong is clearly a victim of animal abuse.

Shocking hypocrisy PETA *shakes head*

......WHAAA-?! You've got to be kidding me!
Of all the things they could be outraged by, they put effort on this?

PETA, there are still thousands of puppy mills in operation, veal cows raised their entire lives in a space that barely fits them, hair care products being rubbed in beagle's eyes as if knowing the chemicals in the product isn't enough......stop pissing on historically accurate-use of dogs in COD, Mario transforming into an animal, etc.

Stop trying to get those beagles fired, it was the only job they could find in this bad economy!

ya know PETA, you're right. after playing mario i'm determined to go slaughter a tanuki and make suit out of it.

Well, just be sure to look out for other mythical Japanese creatures which will likely come looking for you for messing with one of theirs.

If you're lucky, it'll be quick, though they'll likely also go after your family, friends and neighbors.

I guess they won't like the fact that I am wearing the corpse of a dozen or so dragons that I helped make extinct

Sorry, I was making a Condor egg omelette and I was out of the room. Did I miss anything?

Peta? I hear they're delicious.


I hope you have used sweety basil with that... It not condor omellete without sweet basil.

Don't forget to add a pinch of grind up unicorn horn. Gives it a good kick for taste.


I'm actually serious about the basil. It's a thousand dollars dish, you don't want to screw up.

and they have no problems with the plumber eating shrooms????? :)


Apparently shrooms don't have feelings... :(

Seriously now, I'm against animal abuse, but this eco-friendly people have the worst guided sense of criticism ever. I mean they'll gladly eat soy which's cultive literally is the biggest reason for deforestation in the world, making millions of animals homeless every year... But they won't eat a steak even through the only reason those cows exist is because we like 'em well done. Really smart.

Not to mention the thousands upon thousands of animals that are being tortured and killed each day in real life....yet PETA are currently wasting their money on making a silly over-the-top game about Mario and his tanooki suit. It's ridiculous. The millions of dollars they have could go to making no-kill animal shelters or to creating animal reserves. :(
