PETA Asks The World To Present Argument For Eating Bacon, The Internet Responds

PETA is known for its ability to divide society with its controversial and confrontational advertising releases. Even before the advent of social media the not for profit organisation founded in 1980 was able to resonate and strike discord between animal loving vegetarians and omnivorous individuals. However, Facebook, Twitter and the like have given a considerably more far-reaching voice to PETA as they wage their ongoing campaign against cruelty to animals.

In a recent tweet, PETA has unwittingly opened a gaping hole for pork-loving folks to exploit. The now viral tweet was seeking responses from the public in relation to reasons for consuming bacon, Meat lovers seized the day and went to town in response.

The organisation cannot complain about the wide publicity it has received as a result of the viral tweet. However, the content of the responses has only reaffirmed bacon afficionados’ love for the cured pork product.

Just ask Ron:

Whilst it is believed that PETA generally has animals’ best interests at heart, their approach to confronting meat eaters about their lifestyle choice has attracted a real ‘f*ck off’ response by the wider community. It is very possible that a person can be both an animal lover and a meat eater.
