PETA, triggered by National Pizza Day, learns you just don’t come between Americans and their pizza

It would appear that there are very few things that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) won’t complain about.

So when #NationalPizzaDay began trending on Twitter, it was merely a matter of time until the organization posted something on the topic. Lo and behold, an image of a crying pig being sliced up for pepperoni was born.

While the lighthearted hashtag was meant to celebrate a universally beloved and extremely versatile food, PETA’s post darkened the digital mood. This displeased a great many tweeters, who trolled the organization for being wet blankets.

When it became abundantly clear that their first post wasn’t getting the overwhelmingly-positive response that they perhaps expected, they tried again, this time photoshopping together a photo of pepperoni pizza and the bodies of dead swine.

As you can imagine, the responses were pretty similar to their previous post.

Perhaps this was their attempt to deflect from their widely-panned Colin Kaepernick-inspired Super Bowl ad that was rejected, with viewers calling it “divisive political crap,” and claiming that it puts people of color on the “same pedestal as animals.”

BizPac Review reported on the ad, which PETA claims was deemed “too daring” by the NFL who allegedly “pressured FOX to snub our commercial.” What the didn’t expect was that releasing it themselves on Twitter would unleash a torrent of negative comments that accused them of racial insensitivity. Despite this, it is still pinned to the top of their Twitter feed.

But these two tweets combined were small potatoes compared to their intensely-ratioed tweet bashing the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin.

On his birthday.

Distaste for the message united all corners of the social media platform in denouncing the negative portrayal of a beloved icon, whose actions PETA claims were “not on target with his supposed message of protecting wildlife.” They took their derisive and divisive message a step further, stating: “A real wildlife expert & someone who respects animals for the individuals they are leaves them to their own business in their natural homes.”

Despite their perpetually-pessimistic opinions of humanity and those who eat meat, it appears their attempts at getting people to eat the way their organization sees fit aren’t working. In fact, Fox host Maria Bartiromo posted photos of herself celebrating the “holiday” on Twitter, where she can be seen making pizza on Fox & Friends.
