PETA declares war on Pokemon

Written by Peter Scott



Virtual animal cruelty they say


PETA is at it again. Better known for comparing the Holocaust to a chicken farm and condoning terrorist firebomb attacks against animal research labs, the radical animal rights group has now decided to take on Pokemon.

Apparently PETA believes Pokemon Black and White 2 promotes animal cruelty. Of course, the game is entirely fictional and does not feature any real animals, but this doesn’t appear to filter through to the PETA bubble.

"The amount of time that Pokemon spend stuffed in pokeballs is akin to how elephants are chained up in train carts, waiting to be let out to 'perform' in circuses," claims PETA. So, as if comparing six million Holocaust victims to poultry wasn’t enough, PETA is now comparing pixels to elephants.

Well, we could think of quite a few FPS titles that could be condemned by the UN General Assembly, Amnesty International, UNHCR, the International Criminal Court and a bunch of other organizations. Of course this won't happen because such organizations are headed by sane people who know the difference between real life and video games.
