Katy Perry: Under Fire from PETA for “Roar” Video
You can’t make everyone happy all the time, and Katy Perry seems to have angered the people of PETA with her latest music video.
The “Hot N Cold” songstress went for a jungle theme for her “Roar” clip, complete with some wild animals, though none of them appeared to be in any danger during the filming process.
Still, PETA was extremely displeased with the whole project and they released a statement to press to convey their disapproval.
A rep for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals declared, “Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods. They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.”
They added that the company Perry used to supply the cuddly creatures has “been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture 22 times since 2001.”
