PETA Gets Blasted for Defaming "The Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin

PETA is under fire for their reaction on social media to a Google Doodle that was made to honor the late Steve Irwin, also known as "The Crocodile Hunter." ( Google )

Animal rights activists group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), has come under fire across the internet after bashing the late animal conservationist Steve Irwin.

During a reply on Twitter regarding a Google Doodle cartoon that was celebrating the life of “The Crocodile Hunter,” PETA decided to take the opportunity to rile up some controversy:

 

The animal rights group doubled down with some follow up tweets regarding Irwin, a famous TV personality from Australia who was tragically killed by a string ray while filming a documentary in 2006:

Others posts were funny in a MEME fashion:

 

Actor Drake Bell even got in on the act of bashing PETA:
