PETA Urge The Offspring To Take Down Their “We Never Have Sex Anymore” Video Due To “Animal Exploitation”

PETA have taken issue with The Offspring’s recently released video for “We Never Have Sex Anymore” due to its use of chimpanzees. The organization sent a letter to Dexter Holland urging him to take down the clip, which they feel is a display of “animal exploitation.”

PETA said the following:

“Dear Mr. Holland,

The out-of-touch video for “We Never Have Sex Anymore” risks resurrecting the chimpanzee trade in Hollywood. Dressing up chimpanzees, presenting their fear grimaces as “smiles,” and placing them side by side with celebrities is a dangerous messaging trifecta, and there isn’t a primate expert alive who doesn’t condemn this kind of old-school exploitation. If you were going for counterculture, you hit it out of the park.

We believe that the chimpanzees in the video came from the notorious animal supplier Steve Martin, who has been cited numerous times for failing to meet the minimum standards set by the federal Animal Welfare Act, including for locking chimpanzees and orangutans in cramped, barren “night housing” for up to 18 hours a day. He also has a history of disposing of unwanted chimpanzees and other wild animals. Two of the chimpanzees he used ended up at the atrocious G.W. Zoo, which was featured in Netflix’s Tiger King.

There are plenty of things we all miss about the ’90s — but animal exploitation isn’t among them. Every minute your video remains online, it risks legitimizing a cruel industry, propping up the exotic “pet” trade, and reversing years of animal advocacy work that has nearly ended the use of chimpanzees in Hollywood.These chimpanzees’ tragic story is something that just can’t repeat. We urge you to pull the video immediately.”
