PETA, the Greyhound bus tragedy, & the most tasteless ad I have ever seen

This is one of the most heinous, tasteless and self-serving ads I have ever seen.

The little respect I had for PETA in the first place has completely vanished. I never have liked their methods and preachy holier-than-thou attitude, but this is waaaay beyond that.

Some bloggers as well as those who are commenting on this elsewhere are up in arms over this and rightfully so.

How dare PETA use this horrific tragedy to push forward their own agenda?

One of the commenters on the CBC article put it best by saying:

I am against the inhumane slaughter of animals, and support many organizations which try to put a stop to it.

But PETA is so far over the line here that it has undermined whatever credibility it had left.

Ugh.

Ugh indeed. And shame on you PETA.
