If Donald Trump is looking to fire anyone in the near future maybe it should be his two sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, for killing animals while on an African safari.
The Trump name is being tarnished more and more ever since pictures leaked of Don Jr. and his brother posing with dead animals from a trip last year to Africa. Don Jr. can be seen holding an elephant’s tail (not attached to its body), in addition to he and Eric standing next to a dead crocodile hanging from a tree.
People are not happy. The Twitter world has posted many comments of disgust while PETA spoke directly with E! News about the animalistic acts.
“If the young Trumps are looking for a thrill, perhaps they should consider skydiving, bungee jumping, or even following in their anti-hunting father’s footsteps and taking down competing businesses—not wild animals.”
PETA continued to say, “Like all animals, elephants, buffalo, and crocodiles deserve better than to be killed and hacked apart for two young millionaires’ grisly photo opportunity. If the Trumps want to help villagers, they have plenty of resources at their disposal.”
According to Don Jr. and Eric, who also spoke with E! News, they have great respect for nature. “We are both avid outdoorsmen and were brought up hunting and fishing with our grandfather who taught us that nothing should ever be taken for granted or wasted.
“We have the utmost respect for nature and have always hunted in accordance with local laws and regulations. In addition, all meat was donated to local villagers who were incredibly grateful. We love traveling and being in the woods—at the end of the day, we are outdoorsmen at heart.”
As stated earlier, most Twitterers are not taking this lightly. Here are just a few of the tweets Don Jr. received.
@JZgoneshopping: how’d u like someone to cut off ur “tail”?Posing with and mutilating dead animals is SICK. U want to help feed poor?Donate $
@mumbleslam: does killing a big animal make you feel big, little man? ‘Cause it makes you look small…and weak. #patheticlittleBOY
@alucard197666: I’m not an Eco nut, I disagree with u killing some thing with a family and a life and u killed in for some sick idea of fun.
Don Jr. has been defending his actions by firing back left and right with comments on his Twitter feed.
This is not an event that can be taken lightly, and will probably haunt the Trump men for some time.
