Guy Brutally Roasts PETA On Twitter, And People Are Finally Realizing The Truth

Since 1980, PETA has made a name for itself as the number-one authority on animal welfare. UK-based YouTube vlogger Calum McSwiggan, however, wants people to consider otherwise, and recently used a scathing Twitter rant to sound off on the organization’s true colors.

After recent investigations, PETA has come under fire for a lot more than just the scantily clad women they use for marketing. In a March 2017 press release, the Center for Consumer Freedom revealed that PETA euthanized more than 1400 cats and dogs at its Norfolk, Virginia shelter in 2016. PETA defends their animal cruelty actions as ethically and economically necessary, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that their attention-grabbing media presence may be more important to them the animal rights and their lives, too.

McSwiggan’s savage roasts, that has now attracted over 6 thousand respective likes and shares is both shocking and resounding with Twitter users, most of whom had never dared to question PETA before. Follow the entire story and the best roasts below, and weigh in with your views at the end!

I just assumed it was well known that peta is corrupt and does not practice what it preaches. Give to your local humane society.

It's not just PETA, unfortunately. The Red Cross built 6 homes in Haiti with half a billion dollars. These days I only give to the homeless, hungry people who approach me in the streets all the time.

They do that because the reality of their stance is they believe humans should not keep animals as pets, period. They either don't understand or don't care that most people love their pets and care for them like family.
