Rosie O’Donnell is yet another celebrity to disappoint with their ignorance towards animal welfare. A hammerhead shark lost its life while Rosie and her children looked on with their cameras. Clearly killed for the simple purpose of entertainment, this is a display of disrespect and ignorance.
This does not teach children to respect the creatures we share this planet with. It is a display of dominance over another being. This shark was not killed for cultural purposes or for the consumption of meat. This was just another activity of entertainment for a family with a wasteful way of life. I am completely and thoroughly disappointed in Rosie O’Donnell.
