Harambe shouldn't have been slaughtered

"Leave Godzilla alone, too"

Bramhall thinks he insulted animal advocates, but he actually proved our point: You want “second guessing” about King Kong?

If we’d left him alone in his own kingdom, instead of capturing him, chaining him and putting him on display for people to gawk at, he wouldn’t have been shamefully slaughtered, either.

It’s the perfect example of our horrible exploitation of the voiceless. We have made this a hell on Earth for animals; he wouldn’t dare do a cartoon about the exploitation of humans — but he’s always a bully toward the animals.
