PETA Slams Katy Perry’s 'Roar' Video Even Though Her Animal Costars Look Happy (VIDEO)

Eye Roll 5

katy perry roarPETA is apparently immune to the super catchy song "Roar" by Katy Perry ... or maybe they just watched the video with the sound off because there is no way anyone can be mad about something if they hear Perry singing those Dolores O'Riordan-style Cranberries-esque yodel-like roars. She's got the eye of the tiger. She's a fighter. And so what if she's frolicking in a faux jungle with some big cats. And a tarantula. And an elephant. And a crocodile. And some monkeys.

But PETA is pissed and claiming animal cruelty even though all the animals seemed to be having so much fun. Check out the evidence.

Lucky croc. His breath has never been fresher. I bet he's able to meet tons of new lady crocs thanks to Katy's straddle and brush. Maybe if Katy did this to Russell Brand more, he wouldn't have such a potty mouth.

This elephant is playfully stealing Katy's clothes after she had him spray her nude body down with water from his trunk. You know how many elephants would have killed to be cast in this part of the video?! I bet this is sort of exactly how John Mayer won her over, too.

What a cheeky little monkey. He has a bird's eye view upskirt.

I'm no expert, but the only thing that seems criminal here is Katy's costumes. PETA steamed:

Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods. They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.

I wonder how scared the jungle cat was when Katy started roaring in his face? He probably loved it. Let your animalistic side roar, Katy! Watch the whole video and see what you think.

Do you think PETA has a right to be mad at Katy Perry?

This post is ludicrous. I don't know if those animals were treated humanely or not, but I do know that "oooh he looks so happy and he got to be with a pretty girl!" is about the dumbest reason I have ever heard of for deciding that they were. 


This is crap.

Peta kills adoptable pets every day, while pocketing the grants the government gives them for rescuing. Peta is the biggest load of crap.

Agreed, Felipe'sMom.

The "training" the animals endure to look so "happy" is horrific.  But since animals aren't on Kim Kardashian's top 10 list no one gives a fuck.
