Someone's in trouble…
H-wood funnymen Kevin James, Adam Sandler, Steve Carell, and Jim Carrey were sent some strong worded letters from PETA today.
The letters, which PETA released to the Track, read:
“We’re absolutely sure that until this moment, you could not have been aware of the abuse and suffering that captive wild animals used in the entertainment industry endure behind the scenes, and we feel that it is important to provide you with this information.”
James and Sandler were specifically targeted in the protest, due to the recent release of their flick The Zookeeper.
Back in 2009, the death of Tweet, a giraffe who collapsed and died on the Franklin Park set of the film, sparked a federal investigation. Tweet’s scenes in Zookeeper were filmed at the local zoo, though he wasn’t a resident. He was transported from California’s Animals in Motion for the shoot.
Activists made their presence known outside the Zookeeper premiere last week in El Lay.
PETA staged an elaborate protest, featuring signs that read “Cruelty Has No Place In Show Business.”
