This is the kind of absurd, real-life satire that you couldn't make up if you tried.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA, as you surely are aware) is asking JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon if the bank would either donate or sell the group OJ Simpson's house "for a nominal sum", which is being foreclosed on by the bank.
Why Simpson's old digs, you ask? Simple. PETA would like to turn the five-bedroom home in Kendall, Fla., into a "Meat is Murder" museum. Simpson was infamously accused of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1994. Now, PETA wants to allay any concerns about the unfortunate semantics here. The museum would supposedly teach visitors that "nonviolence begins on our plates." See, you surely feel better now.
According to CNN Money, PETA said it chose Simpson's home because he was outspoken about his consumption of meat, coupled with the fact that he was a spokesman for a chicken restaurant chain, and owned two restaurants and a stake in HoneyBaked Ham stores.
Simpson is currently serving a 33-year sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping in Nevada over a host of memorabilia that he intended to reclaim as his own.
PETA said it is serious about the request, but this isn't the first publicity grab in the group's history.
Other famous headlines included promoting breast milk ice cream, calling the American Kennel Club the Klux Kanine Klan, labeling meat eaters as Jeffrey Dahmers, deciding that cows' milk caused autism and declaring that "to animals, all people are Nazis."
The bank isn't commenting on the situation.
