GoDaddy CEO: I'm An Animal-Lover!

Ass-clown GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons spoke briefly to Wired.com about his “humanitarian” elephant kill and guess what everyone – no worries, he’s an animal-lover!

“I have two dogs, and I love ‘em to pieces,” he said.

Yea, ok. So the guy won’t take a shotgun to his Labradors – but if those f*ckers were messing with the crops of Zimbabwe farmers, of course he’d blow their brains out. Right, Bob?

Parsons also insinuated that he’ll go back next year to help shoot some more elephants. “If I said I wouldn’t be going back [to Zimbabwe], the farmers, they would be very disappointed indeed,” he told the site.

Disgusting. AOL snagged an interview with Zimbabwe’s premier conservationist, Johnny Rodrigues, who basically calls Parson’s reasons for killing the bull elephant “misguided” and “supporting a terrible system”.

“The bull elephant Parsons killed has a family,” he says. “It’s the same as a robber coming into Parsons’ house and shooting him in front of one of his kids. Parsons should look at some of the incredible research on elephants and elephant family behavior. He’d be shocked. Elephants are among the smartest, most sensitive animals alive.”
