Elephant Video Causes a Stampede on Twitter

by Lisa Byrne on March 31, 2011


Twitter lit up this afternoon with a lot of debate from animal lovers worldwide as people lashed out about a recent “vacation video” posted on video.me featuring Go Daddy CEO, Bob Parsons. Today,  PETA sent a letter terminating their business with Go Daddy and awarding Mr. Parsons their “First-Ever Scummiest CEO of the Year” title. The video in question depicts the hunting and shooting of a “problem elephant” in Zimbabwe, followed by images of local villagers sporting orange Go Daddy hats tearing the animal apart – all to the tune of AC/DC’s “Hells Bells”. If you would like to view the graphic video it’s been shared by Time.com. ABC, MSNBC, The Huffington Post, and many more. We’ll leave it up to your own interpretation. However, it seems that many organizations are looking at alternatives to work around the issue in a humanitarian way. For additional information check out Live Science and Change.org.
