    I know there's a topic about how much PETA sucks for the Tanooki suit fiasco, but this deserves a new news article according to every other website it's featured on, so I figured it does here too.

    I had a feeling that PETA may secretly be Nintendo fans n' all.

    Still, it's fucking PETA. Nobody takes them seriously or wants to like them.

    Yeah, it was a joke, just like PETA itself.

    The PETA Plan:
    Step 1) Whine and bitch to create controversy
    Step 2) Bask in the glory of all the attention you recieve
    Step 3) Say,"Just kidding you guys"
    Step 4) Begin planning next publicity stunt

    Cycle, rinse, repeat.

    I couldn't have said it better than myself. You're telling me that PETA troll'd Nintendo about their issue then take it back just for the lawlz?!
    No that wasn't a joke; it's a scapegoat for them not to look stupid in front of their supporters.

    I think PETA was just trying to not get in some serious trouble. Honestly, who wouldn't kick there ass for this? I show them some animal abuse; after all, humans are animals, right?

    If they just said that to begin with, people'd be more likely to support their cause. Joke or not, it's hard to not get a little disgusted seeing a family videogame icon flying across a bloody meadow wearing the bleeding skin of a raccoon dog. Coming out and saying it was just a desperate plea for attention doesn't want me to donate to them, regardless of their cause

    Oh, that's cool. I'll just take this money and post it to WWF and not PETA. How's that for a joke?

    I love how they retract their statement here, but not the one on Meat Boy.

    Team Meat definitely pwned PETA on their own though.
