Though I am not a vegetarian, I am fundamentally against killing animals for sport or smiling beside the dead body
of an animal one just killed. Such is the case with Rosie O’Donnell, who has recently sparked controversy for appearing with her children beside a dead hammerhead shark, which she caught while shark-fishing in Florida. Sharks are over-fished and risk extinction, and Florida recently banned the activity (note: the activity was banned after
O’Donnell’s heinous excursion). To make matters worse, this isn’t her first time shark-fishing
. O’Donnell made light of it when the public got angry, issuing a mock service announcement
, which included a dig at Donald Trump. I realize that humor can often get one out of trouble (see Alec Baldwin
), but that tactic is inappropriate here.
