PETA At It Again

Posted By on Thu, Dec 13, 2018 at 11:44 AM

PETA, the animal advocacy group, is trying to start some shit, y'all.

The group recently posted a billboard on Summer depicting the three Wise Men. It reads, "Be Wise. Have Faith in Veganism."

The billboard was placed near two churches at Christmastime.

From PETA's press release:

"Going vegan is the perfect way to honor the Christmas message of peace on Earth and goodwill to all members of creation," says PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien. "PETA is encouraging everyone to celebrate with compassion by choosing a delicious vegan roast for the holiday table."
That may be a tough sell in this city. But... but(!) ... in sorta related news, the newly elected Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris held a VEGAN BARBECUE on Wednesday for staff and media as part of a kick off for his "Health and Fitness Initiative."
