PETA

Swats at Obama

for Killing That Fly!

6/17/2009 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

PETA is finally going after President Barack Obama for delivering capital punishment to a housefly on the White House grounds yesterday -- a death that was caught on tape.


When asked for comment, here's the statement PETA released: 

"He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."

We're told the fly's carcass has been moved to a secret location ... we're guessing the bottom of a White House trash can.

PETA, I didnt like you guys before, but now I F@$% hate you MotherF$%#. Who do you think you guys are, first you throw red paint on hot sexy models, now your going after Barack for killing a fly. I think PETA members should but their mouths to better use, and put it in their boyfriends lap ;)

A fly is an animal. Look it up, you dolts, since you didn't seem to learn in school.

No wonder everyone hates PETA. By their actions (sometimes criminal) and their words (almost always childish and stupid) they have single-handedly set back the mission of animal rights reform for decades. They are no friend to animals--they are, in fact, their worst nightmare.

I watched the Poko Pano fashion show that was held in Miami and there was not one woman of color
Is it that the designer would prefer to not have black customers or maybe she searched the
world and couldn't find a black model qualified enough to represent her line?
Has anyone ever noticed that Fashion TV never shows a black model for more than a second

I think PETA should get a life, there own. Stop being so radical. They are like the extremists that blow up abortion clinics. You may not agree with each other, but violence is not the answer. Boy I feel like having a nice rare steak.
