‘Greatest hero in American history’: Master troll with tasty treat infuriates NYC animal rights activists

Animal rights activists protesting Nike’s use of Kangaroo hides were thrown off guard when they were confronted by a fearless rebel with a hunger for meat.

The rebel, a man being described by some as the “greatest hero in American history,” walked up to the protesters and proceeded to eat what appeared to be a shish kabob.

There are heroes. And then there are the greatest heroes of all time.

This man is among the latter, his newfound fans say.


Jokes aside, the protest reportedly occurred Saturday afternoon outside a Nike shop in New York City. However, it was just one subset of a much larger, citywide animal rights protest organized by PETA as per their “World Day for the End of Speciesism.”

In an interview, PETA official Ashley Byrne sought to explain what exactly that meant.

“I’m here because this is our chance as animal rights activists to come together once a year to celebrate our movement, to let the world that we’re taking a stand together against speciesism, which is the idea that humans are superior to animals and we have a right to use them for our purposes,” she said.

“And I think what we all want out of being here today is for people to think about their relationship with animals and to realize that animals are individuals. They were created for their own purposes. They’re thinking, feeling individuals just like us. And they deserve better than to be used and exploited for human purposes.”


Fair enough.

Regarding Nike, the group claims the apparel manufacturer hunts kangaroos, “steals” their skin (their hides), and then uses them to make shoes.

“Nike has come under fire for using kangaroo skin to make its leather football shoes. Animal rights advocates in Australia say the world’s largest footwear company is helping to drive the species to extinction,” Plant Based News reported in December.

“Nike is the largest buyer of kangaroo leather, according to a press release from the Animal Justice Party NSW. More than 40,000 kangaroos are killed every month for this reason in NSW alone, the party says. The figure does not include kangaroos killed by farmers, from recreational hunting, as roadkill, or joeys, whose deaths are not counted.”

Louis Vuitton, Fendi, and Dior were also targeted by the protesters. All three are owned by LVMH, a luxury goods conglomerate based out of Paris.

“For more than a decade, PETA U.S. has been pushing executives at LVMH—which owns Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Dior, and other fashion brands—to ban fur,” PETA’s website says.

“Yet even though most luxury fashion houses now embrace faux fur to meet the demands of informed and compassionate consumers, LVMH has refused to cut ties with the cruel fur trade.”

And that therefore makes LVMH deserving of this, according to PETA and its supporters:
