PETA Protested the Texas A&M Graduation and the Crowd Got Triggered

Posted By on Mon, Dec 18, 2017 at 10:55 AM

The Texas A&M University fall graduation ceremony last Friday was filled with the usual pomp and circumstance — until PETA showed up.

Video from the ceremony shows protestors hanging a banner reading "Stop cruel dog tests" on the right side of the stands. But protesters didn't stop there. Although they didn't throw red paint onto any fur coats (that we know of), one of the protestors holding a smaller sign began yelling and running down the aisle between the graduating student body.
The crowd didn't appreciate the ceremony being interrupted and fired back at the protestors by hissing, and booing, of course. The yelling protestor ended up being removed from the ceremony, to which the audience applauded and cheered.

PETA has protested TAMU in the past, claiming that the conservative university breeds dogs with muscular dystrophy for the sake of experimentation. In April, a protestor showed up to a board meeting and noted that the experiments have yet to come up with a cure for humans.

The video below explains PETA's claims against the university with behind-the-scenes footage allegedly filmed on campus.
