CNN: Stop Promoting Animal Torture on Anthony Bourdain's 'Parts Unknown'

This petition had 121,249 supporters


CNN has built a reputation as a respectable, informative news network. But by glorifying the most insidious forms of animal cruelty on Anthony Bourdain's gruesome TV series Parts Unknown,  the network has sunk to a disturbing new low in so-called entertainment. 

Bourdain's show depicts barbaric and sadistic acts such as cutting open a live snake to remove its beating heart; wrestling a goat to the ground before slicing his throat and drinking the blood; and laughing callously about a chef ripping the intestines from a live duck.

Through Parts Unknown, Bourdain is desensitizing people around the world to animal torture, and turning suffering into a joke. With his popularity and status, Bourdain could be doing a lot of good in the world; yet he chooses the road of misery and death. 

CNN must be held to the highest accountability for their programming -- and it's time to take animal torture out of their lineup. By continuing to air this macabre experience masquerading as a travel show, CNN is directly responsible for brutal animal abuse.

Help stop the glorified cruelty. Sign now to urge CNN to stop promoting animal torture!
