PETA Is Super Pissed About That Horse Fucking Scene From "Silicon Valley"

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 2.13.07 PM

HR- That scene in Silicon Valley’s May 1 episode with the super-explicit horse sex? PETA didn’t think it was funny. Although the American Humane Association was on the set at the California breeding farm where the sequence was filmed and gave the shoot a “No Animals Were Harmed” certification, the more radical animal-rights group likened the practice of thoroughbred mating to “arranged rape.” According to PETA spokesperson Lisa Lange, “It may seem fun, but the mares are tethered during the process with no means of escape and the stallions are put on a lead rope and dragged to the mares to be mounted. Neither the stallions or the mares have any choice, it’s assembly line breeding for profit.… There’s an overpopulation crisis in racing as most horses will not win races, and are therefore discarded and sent on hideous journeys by truck in all weather to Mexico or Canada to be turned into meat.” HBO, for its part, couldn’t get enough of the horseplay. “I actually have an email from [senior vp comedy programming] Amy Gravitt where she said, ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but can we have more screen time with the horses having sex?’ ” the show’s creator Mike Judge tells The Hollywood Reporter. “So we put in more shots.”

 

 

SHOCKING development that PETA is pissed about that horse fucking scene from Sunday’s “SiliconValley” And by that I of course mean not shocking at all. They don’t want anybody to have any fun ever when it comes to animals. But you know what? I’d bet everything I have (almost literally nothing) that PETA supporters laughed their asses off at that scene. They had to. If they didn’t, they’re lying. The scene was uncomfortable and weird but undoutebly funny. The PETA people just know they occupy a certain portion of the internet that has to get mad whenever anyone does something with animals. Those are the people and organizations you can’t trust. The ones who have a canned response no matter what the situation because they know the have to. PETA is the definition of that. Lighten up a little. It’s just horse fucking.

 

Love this part of the article

 

HBO, for its part, couldn’t get enough of the horseplay. “I actually have an email from [senior vp comedy programming] Amy Gravitt where she said, ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but can we have more screen time with the horses having sex?’ ” the show’s creator Mike Judge tells The Hollywood Reporter. “So we put in more shots.”

 

 

That has to make the show runners of Silicon Valley so damn happy. While the PETA people sharpen their swords and threaten to do whatever the hell PETA does to people it doesn’t like, the bosses at HBO want more horse fucking in the scene. Gotta love that.

 

 

Here’s the scene (the sound quality sucks but you don’t need the sound to see what’s happening)
