Los Angeles – Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in response to the Instagram post showing “internet personality” Logan Paul jumping over a baby bull in what looks like a bullfighting ring:

“This demonstrably desperate and vile little wannabe celebrity who got his jollies from tasing dead rats is now playing at bullfighting, a blood sport in which insecure men in tight pants taunt, exhaust, and stab a bull until he’s weak enough to be stabbed in the spine. No decent person in the world would follow any example that Logan Paul sets.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
