Irony Alert: Jillian Michaels Protests Treatment of Elephants

No joke: Go Daddy girl to protest alongside PETA in defense of circus elephants.

How’s this for irony: fitness guru and GoDaddy Girl Jillian Michaels is joining with PETA to protest Ringling Bros. circus and its treatment of elephants.

I’m not kidding.

In case you aren’t familiar with the story, GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons shot an elephant in Africa this year. It’s not the first time he’s done it, but the story went viral this time and a number of people said they would boycott the domain name registrar because of the incident.

PETA — the organization Jillian Michaels is teaming up with — transferred its domain names out of GoDaddy because of the incident. Parsons calls PETA hypocritical.
