CeeLo Green’s Horse Incident Sparks Twitter Frenzy and PETA’s Ire
CeeLo Green, the renowned singer and rapper, recently found himself at the center of a social media storm after an unfortunate incident involving a horse went viral.
The mishap occurred at the late Shawty Lo’s birthday party at The Bank in Atlanta and led to a flurry of reactions on Twitter, ranging from hilarious memes to expressions of concern, and even caught the attention of animal rights organization PETA.
The incident unfolded when CeeLo Green decided to take a ride on a white horse during the birthday celebration. The horse, clearly uncomfortable with the situation, bucked and caused Green to tumble off. The video of the event quickly spread across social media platforms, garnering a mixed response from users. Some found humor in the situation and turned the clip into memes, while others expressed concern for both Green and the horse.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), an organization known for advocating animal rights, took notice of the incident and issued a statement condemning the use of animals for entertainment purposes. The organization expressed its disappointment in Green’s actions, emphasizing the importance of treating animals with respect and dignity.
“It doesn’t take a genius to know that horses don’t belong at a noisy, crowded party, where slippery floors and strobe lights can agitate these vulnerable animals,” PETA said in a statement. “If CeeLo bumped his head, PETA’s hoping it knocked some sense and compassion into him. PETA encourages others to not follow in his footsteps, use common senses and kindness and leave animals alone.”
