If there’s one thing the internet has taught me, it’s that people love to be outraged. Love it.
Example number infinity: Jamie O’brien recently had his way with a green sea turtle. (pictured) Now, the media is in an uproar. People are outraged.
Turtles are a protected species in Hawaii, so feeding, petting, capturing, and especially romancing one, are strictly prohibited. Like $13,200 in fines- prohibited.
The laws are there to protect the animals, which I can understand, but in this case the turtle is obviously fine. Maybe if there were photos of the two smoking a cigarette afterwards, then I could see PETA getting involved.
No word yet on if any legal action will be taken towards Mr. O’brien.
