Watch Hannibal Buress Troll a Group of PETA Protesters

Hannibal Buress successfully annoyed a group of PETA protesters by asking them questions about their vegan lifestyle and the joys of meat-eating.


The segment—which aired during this week’s edition of Why? with Hannibal Buress on Wednesday—was filmed at a PETA protest against the use of animals in circuses. Watch above as Hannibal poses hypotheticals to demonstrators, like, “If you could be reincarnated as any animal, what would you be?”

One totally logical woman says she’d come back as a wolf: “I’d probably be a vegan wolf.”


Another woman wearing very cool sunglasses says, “I think Martin Luther King was an inspiration, and if we could be the Martin Luther King for animals, why not?” True.

Hannibal later wonders, “Animals think other animals are delicious, so why shouldn’t I think that they’re delicious?”

PETA is fucking nuts and hypocritical. But this happens to be an excellent cause. No to animals in circuses and amusement parks like SeaWorld.
