PETA Attacks Nintendo's Super Mario

In recent news, PETA or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has labelled the popular iconic Super Mario character as a promoter of the fur industry! Apparently in Nintendo's new Super Mario 3D Land game Mario puts on a Tanuki suit and gains the power to glide. But PETA says that is some kind of animal abuse and it has even launched an online game called Mario Kills Tanooki:

Mario Kills Tanooki

Notice the incorrect spelling of Tanuki which clearly shows that PETA is wrong yet again!

Needless to say, this has created quite an uproar in mass media and all over the internet. Here is a clever animated response by NMA.TV:

And here is my response:

PETA Kills Animals

  1. When Ron Paul becomes the next president it would be great if he eliminated peta.

  2. lol. This is so dumb. I guess PETA doesn't care about turtles cause they don't have fur and don't have any feelings.

  3. Update: PETA: That Whole Bloody Mario Thing, That was Just a Joke

    Looks like PETA bit off more Fusarium venetum then they could chew when they attacked Mario for his Tanooki-suit wearing ways. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals tell Kotaku that their bloody video game take-down of Mario was meant to be "tongue-in-cheek."


  4. Come on, this is Super Mario! He is not killing animals!This is too far even for me!
