Hammerhead sharks have been on the endangered species list since 2008, and a Florida law that makes it illegal to fish them went into effect on January 1st, but fuck them says Rosie O’Donnell, who killed at least 2 (maybe 4) before then.
The Florida Sun Sentinel reports…
Rosie O’Donnell and her family caught huge hammerhead sharks in fishing trips off the South Florida coast.
Now environmentalists (are) irate at the killing of ocean predators that are considered overfished around the globe.
“Right now sharks are the most endangered animals around,” said Erik Brush, a Sarasota marine conservationist. “This is basically an endorsement. It sends the message that it’s an OK activity. And this is not an activity that we want celebrities endorsing.”
As for O’Donnell’s reaction to the controversy: “She’s amused by it.”
And the Daily Mail adds:
(She) has defended herself by responding to individual tweets saying, ‘chill people – really – my family fishes’.
Yeah, really, everyone just chill. It’s not as if Rosie O’Donnell has ever tried to force any of her personal beliefs on us.
“I don’t care if you want to hunt, I don’t care if you think it’s your right. I say, sorry, you are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun I think you should go to prison.”
Oh wait never mind. Yeah she does do that. Constantly. Which is why she’s such a hatable cunt. I kill sharks too but I just dive into the water with a knife in my mouth, then surface an hour later wearing a necklace made of it’s teeth. As you can tell, I’m pretty bad ass.
