Steve Irwin was an extraordinary man! His line of work and his personality really turned him into someone admirable and people loved him for what he was and for what he did! We remember watching him and having fun, and we cherish the good memories. However, the people at PETA obviously have a different outlook on things, and they reacted to the tribute Google paid to Steve Irwin with a doodle in honor of what would have been his 57th birthday. The majority of people on social media did not like PETA’s statement at all and they had something to say about it and it was all worth sharing, which is why we created the following list!
1. Here is how it all started
PETA really had the wrong tone from the very start and they were determined to make Irwin look bad.
2. They continued with another tweet
The animal rights organization claimed that Irwin was not acting according to what he preached.
3. This is their third tweet
The people behind PETA’s Twitter account continued pointing out why that Google Doodle was no appropriate.
4. People did not like any of PETA’s tweets
This is exactly what we thought after reading their tweets!
5. People formed an anti-PETA alliance
It seems that people all around the world were furious about what PETA had to say about Steve Irwin.
6. They should not have done it on his birthday
We guess that if Steve Irwin saw the whole ordeal from above, he was pleased to see how much people loved him.
7. This is something we can agree with
Irwin was able to teach many kids about the true value of nature and animals, and he should be praised for that!
8. This person destroyed PETA
He has a point, too. It seems that Irwin did more to protect animals than a whole organization!
9. This user was not happy just as much as the rest
Saying that he basically got what he asked for is definitely not an appropriate thing to do!
10. Even official accounts joined the conversation
It is admirable to see that nobody hesitated to defend Irwin, and this account literally shamed PETA.
11. This pretty much describes what PETA got themselves into
We cannot think of a better way to describe the huge backlash after PETA’s tweets!
12. This is sadly accurate
PETA could have used all that energy they put into shaming Irwin into actually doing some quality work!
13. Steve Irwin’s own words are true and it happened now
Instead of protecting and praising his legacy like they should, PETA turned against him.
14. This person has a point, too
Maybe PETA made a move like this with the intention of attracting attention to their brand! It is not the right way to do such a thing!
15. This man showed how he felt about PETA’s position
Instead of just writing a post, he posted proof that he donated some money to Irwin’s foundation!
16. This is what we call quality sarcasm
This is how you can shut down someone the right way with sarcasm, and we love this post!
17. This is absolutely accurate
We need to admit that these two images describe the way we reacted! We are also glad that people defended the legendary Irwin!
18. This person shamed PETA
Here is just one more vote against PETA! We guess that everyone thought that the organization did something bad by talking about Irwin’s legacy!
19. This funny image send to PETA one more time
The organization received one backlash after another, but this funny image is just the best!
20. This is the kind of support Steve Irwin’s family deserves
This user wrote the right thing! Replying to PETA’s tweets was not worth the time spent.
21. We like how someone described the whole thing with this image
More than one person was inspired by the whole thing to create a funny image describing it!
22. This is what people think of PETA
We genuinely believe that people liked this image a lot, but those working for PETA didn’t!
23. This one is just hilarious
We can really get used to seeing this kind of funny images because PETA deserved such a backlash.
24. This person had one very reasonable argument
This reminder about PETA’s actions is a demonstration that they accuse Irwin of something they actually do!
25. This is one of our favorite funny images on the topic
It appears that people were more than inspired by this topic to create a variety of funny images!
