PETA is very angry about the new Offspring video's use of chimps. Here’s their statement:
“There are plenty of things we all miss about the ’90s—but animal exploitation isn’t among them. Every minute your video remains online, it risks legitimizing a cruel industry, propping up the exotic-‘pet’ trade, and reversing years of animal advocacy work that has nearly ended the use of chimpanzees in Hollywood.”
The problem stems from The Offspring’s contracting of Steve Martin’s Working Wildlife, which has been nailed several times by the US Department of Agriculture because they violated the federal Animal Act, specifically with their treatment of chimps in their care.
