Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

As we so often ask ourselves and those around us- WHAT TIMELINE IS THIS. 2020 has been the absolute weirdest year, and it keeps getting stranger.

One of the hottest game titles to hit [so far] is Animal Crossing New Horizons, which just happened to hit as the quarantine blanketed the world. Perhaps helping skyrocket it to the position it’s currently enjoying, which just hit a new milestone- PETA is pissed.

Let’s digest that for a second. PETA, the “People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals” folks, are currently upset about an element in Animal Crossing [read: a freaking video game], the use of an aquarium that houses various forms of fish and aquatic sea creatures players can fish for.

In this new video released by PETA on their TikTok (and Twitter), we see a group of players in PETA shirts storming the aquarium and demanding that museum curator Blathers “EMPTY THE AQUARIUM,” and “BLATHERS IS CANCELLED.”

It is unclear if this is a joke post or not, but we wouldn’t put it past PETA to try to get in on the Animal Crossing hype.
