Clay Aiken

Clay Aiken recently stated in Rolling Stones magazine that he once had a kitten he thought was evil and delberately ran it over.I do not listen or support Clay Aiken or American idol. He is ignorant enough to believe that a kitten is evil and be so cruel to run it over. Please support me and many others in banning Clay Aiken by not supporting his music.Animal cruelty is abuse of any animal dogs or cats. Even prince has a cat.
Thank You

PETA chose to target Clay Aiken because he recently told Rolling Stone, "I think cats are Satan. There's nothing worse to me than a house cat. When I was about 16, I had a kitten and ran over it." PETA deals with dozens of cases of cruelty to cats every week and knows firsthand how damaging statements like this can be-impressionable kids often mimic what their "idols" do. Aiken never responded when PETA wrote to him.

He could stick a kitten in his cap and call it macaroni, and I'd still hate him just for being him.

psychodelicide

Clay Aiken thinks cats are evil so he ran his kitten over??? And he calls himself a Christian??? He's not much of a Christian for doing that. Someone should get into a car and run him over for even having the assholishness to even say that during an interview.

I always knew that Clay was an idiot and this just confirms it. I hope a barnyard of cats attacks Clay and bites and scratches the hell out of him Go cats, go!! Cats Rule!

Isn't that one of the signs that serial killers exhibit when they're young? Cruelty to animals?

I rate this thread zero stars.

At first when I saw this thread, I thought I was in the wrong forum. Clay Aiken? isn't he a singer? Shouldn't this go in "Non Prince"? But then I remembered I heard him sing and figured this was right.

But then when I read the post about kittens and the devil or something, my old doubts returned. Maybe this should be in the Politics and Religion Forum?

I understand that this was probably a tough call for you PurpleHoney, but my main objection is that you didn't acknowledge any of these issues. You just threw this thread in here and left it to fend on its own.

I can't in all conscience award you a single star.

Sorry.

Triumph Bites Clay for PETA

Puppet dog mocks cat-hating pop idol in new ad

Fair game


In a landmark display of canine-feline solidarity, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog has lashed out at professed kitty-hater Clay Aiken in a new ad campaign for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The print ad shows Triumph with a band-aid over his recently neutered doggy-bits and a post-surgery collar, and reads, "Get Neutered: It didn't hurt Clay Aiken."
Though the barb was Triumph's own, PETA went along thanks in part to comments that Aiken made in a recent Rolling Stone article. "I think cats are Satan," Aiken said. "There's nothing worse to me than a house cat. When I was about sixteen, I had a kitten and ran over it. Seeing that cat die, I actually think that its spirit has haunted me. I wasn't afraid of cats before. But now they scare me to death."

"It's a stupid statement," says PETA Vice President Dan Matthews. "We get calls every week from people who throw kittens on barbecues because it's funny. Or people who light cats on fire, or people who drag cats from cars. It's so irresponsible that we wrote him after that interview came out and he never got back to us. So we thought, you know, fair game, let's go for it."

According to PETA, with animal shelters overflowing, neutering and spaying cats and dogs saves shelter-workers from having to put animals to death when suitable homes cannot be found. Because Triumph's new album, Come Poop With Me, is full of jokes about losing his private parts, he seemed a perfect spokes-puppet.

"There's already been a huge response," says Matthews, whose office has been bombarded by calls from angry Clay-mates. "When we explain why, they understand it a bit better. In the end it's just funny. If you look at the awful thing Clay said about cats, our ad in response is a pretty lighthearted way to even up the score."

A spokesman for Clay Aiken had not comment on the ad.

Clay didn't say he deliberately ran it over. And actually if you think about it, he's saying that you shouldn't harm animals (if only because they will "haunt" you). I love animals enormously but I'd like to know for sure that he did it on purpose before trying to ruin his career.
Maybe he hates them Because he thinks the one he accidentally ran over is haunting him. Crazy but maybe not cruel. nuts
