PETA Criticizes Katy Perry’s “Roar” Music Video


PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) released a statement criticizing the use of animals in Katy Perry’s music video for her hit sing, “Roar.” The video, which you can watch below, features monkeys, elephants, and tigers. PETA stated, “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.”

PETA believes Katy Perry worked with The Serengeti Ranch to supply animals. The group “has been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture 22 times since 2001,” which could imply the mistreatment of the animals used on set for “Roar.” Nothing has been confirmed, and Katy Perry has yet to release a statement in response.

Do you think this will affect Katy Perry’s single in any way?
