Jack Harlow has been called out by an extreme animal rights group because of his latest music video. Harlow’s “Churchill Downs” clip with Drake features scenes of thoroughbred horse racing. PETA took major offense to Jack’s work.
A representative for the organization spoke to TMZ about their feelings. They said that Jack Harlow made a huge mistake by showing off one of America’s favorite sports in the video. The PETA spokesperson said Harlow failed to show what the organization believes are the more cruel aspects of the sport.
“[The video is] missing the whips, drugs, and deaths that run rampant in the industry.”
PETA thinks Jack Harlow is profiting from the abuse of animals by releasing the video. They’re looking for a donation. The organization has called for Harlow to donate his earnings to them.
According to PETA, 3 racehorses die on tracks in the United States each day. They also claim that 7,500 thoroughbred horses are slaughtered every year. They want Jack Harlow to pay for the care of these horses, which they say would otherwise become meals.
Jack Harlow hasn’t responded to PETA’s request for a donation. Drake also remains mum on the issue. PETA is hoping they can raise awareness for their cause by speaking up.
