On Larry King Live last night, Rue McClanahan and Betty White were in the studio paying tribute the late, great, Bea Arthur and reminscing with King. As we touched upon yesterday, Arthur was a huge animal rights supporter — and an honorary director of PETA for more than two decades. King brought up her relationship with the organization — and questioned PETA’s tactics with this question:
KING: Rue, PETA can be pretty rough, can’t they?
MCCLANAHAN: No. I think they do it exactly the way it should be done. They do it through the courts. They do it legally and they make a lot of changes in the way animals are suffering. I really admire them. I’ve been with them for years and I just — they — I can’t say enough wonderful things about how they operate.
Oh snap, King! Rue McClanahan just gave you a Golden Girls double-slam with extra sass. Take that to your hyperbaric sleeping chamber (Larry King will live forever!) and smoke it!
Thanks to the always wonderful Erin for the tip!
