Katy Perry's uproar over "Roar"
PETA tries to get some mileage out of pop singer
So PETA - a worthy animal-protection organization but sadly as publicity hungry as any rising singer - has jumped in on the act, claiming that the video filming "traumatized" any animals involved, even though PETA officials weren't anywhere near the set and have no idea exactly how the animals were or weren't treated.
Perry and her leopard-skin-swathed breasts star in a take-off of a Tarzan movie along with a tiger, an elephant, a monkey and a bunch of special effects (Hey, PETA, you see that picture up above? I'll bet you a million bucks she's not really brushing the teeth of a live crocodile).
Bing: Katy Perry's PETA problem
The American Humane Association, however, was there for the entire three-day shoot. And they released a statement telling PETA to shut the hell up (and confirmed that no actual croc was on the set):
American Humane Association was on set for the filming of the above referenced music video, which used an elephant, a monkey, birds and a tiger. After reviewing the reports, we believe that the Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media were followed and that no animal was harmed in the making of this music video.
So now you can feel free to enjoy the video without any fear of red paint being thrown on you next time you go out in public.
Let me try that again, because the original author of the bad Katy Perry comment was cut off.

Eh...I'd give her the 'high hard one' on any given day....NEXT!
Your Katy Perry comment was just as disrespectful as was PETA (something like that)
Peta needs to look elsewhere for PR or attention. So far I'm hearing more bs over this than the shootings that go on every weekend in Chicago.
