Washington – No one likes Anthony Fauci more than Anthony Fauci. A recent peek inside the world headquarters of the Anthony Fauci Fan Club—his home office—proves it. His walls, festooned in various shades of Anthony Fauci, including a life-size portrait and his own bobblehead, indicate that the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) really likes images of himself. So PETA has created the newest addition to his collection of Fauci memorabilia: a mosaic portrait made of hundreds of tiny photographs of the monkeys and beagles he and NIAID have tormented and killed in cruel experiments.
The high-resolution file can be found here.
“If Anthony Fauci is going to surround himself with images of himself, they may as well be accurate,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “Fauci has overseen the torment and death of countless animals in colossally ridiculous, wasteful experiments that help no one but kill animals by the score. He should be reminded of that constantly.”
PETA urges Fauci to implement its Research Modernization Deal, a strategy developed by PETA scientists to replace failed animal experimentation methods with organs-on-a-chip, supercomputers, three-dimensional tissue models, and other high-tech research methods.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information on PETA’s investigative newsgathering and reporting, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
