Disney's Little Mermaid Remake Has Already Received A Request From PETA

https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2569085/disney-little-mermaid-remake-has-already-received-request-peta-halle-bailey



Disney’s live-action version of The Little Mermaid is currently filming following a number of successful remakes from the studio’s Renaissance era. Although we’d expect the creatures Halle Bailey’s Ariel interacts with to be computer generated creatures of the sea, animal rights organization PETA is concerned about one aspect of the film and has sent out a letter to Disney with a particular request.

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) penned a letter to Disney’s head of production, Sean Bailey, asking that the Little Mermaid production refrain from serving fish to its cast and crew while they film in Sardinia, Italy over the summer. As the PETA letter noted:

Disney’s The Little Mermaid got it right in 1989—fish are intelligent, emotionally complex, and playful, and they experience pain just like we do. I’m writing on behalf of the many Disney fans at PETA and animal advocates everywhere to ask that the live-action production be completely Flounder-friendly by providing only tasty, vegan, fish-free food for the cast and crew on set.


The letter written by PETA’s senior manager of animals in film and television, Lauren Thomasson, requests that The Little Mermaid adopt a vegan menu for its production. The organization shared that the easiest and most effective way humans can protect animals is through a plant-based diet, devoid of meat and dairy products. The letter went on to say this as well:

1. Well, excuse me,

all vegetarians and vegans here, but PETA can go fcuk itself. Despite its name, it is an unethical and vicious organization which likes to use shaming and other nasty and misguided tactics against anyone it considers its "opponents".

8. +1

PETA would also rather have feral cats euthanized rather than sterilized, vaccinated and returned to managed colonies.

12. Don't forget...

They stole a family's dog off their front porch and later euthanized it, I seem to recall. And their idea of fair compensation was a fruit basket.

2. It's enough to make me wonder

whether PETA is secretly funded by RWers out to make liberals and progressives appear loony.

7. That would almost make sense

They've really jumped the shark over the past decade or more.

3. The most ethical thing

mankind can do for ALL animals, the environment and the future of man on the planet is control the runaway population.
Nothing else is as easy and effective.

4. PETA should not be a priority. We have bigger fish to fry.

5. So important that it made it to cinemablend.com.

 

Keep up the message, PETA.

In a world where we shove electrodes up the butt's of animals to kill them, as to not damage their fur, I can handle whatever PETA brings to the table. Always amazed at those acting so offended by PETA yet never delve into one of the most brutal aspects of humans today; our treatment of animals.

6. I heard a demand, not an offer

If PETA was truly committed to their cause, they would have offered to supply those meals.instead, they simply made an ignorable demand.

18. Better: have that greedy, rich Mouse hire PETA to provide meals. Win/win.

17. Good Lord, that seems to be a real campaign.

Sorry, PETA, but as I said when someone found out I was eating venison and asked how I could eat such a creature,

"Is that a rhetorical question or are you asking for recipes?"
