The hugely anticipated fourth installment of the series is set to arrive in cinemas later this year, seeing the return of Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the gang.

However, the animal rights group PETA has claimed the movie is normalising animal exploitation, saying the stunts are harmful to animal welfare.

PETA’s statement read:

“Jackass stunts are violent and vulgar, but if the talent is willing and the wounds are self-inflicted, that’s one thing – however, it’s quite another when animals are exploited, harassed, and harmed: That’s cruelty.”

-AD-

“The Jackass Forever trailer shows Knoxville’s crew provoking a snake and a bull to the point of attack, treating a tarantula like a game piece, and coercing a chained bear to eat honey off a bound participant.”

“Four months before its release, Jackass Forever has already risked normalizing animal exploitation and legitimizing the cruel exhibitors who pimp out animals for productions.”

“PETA is urging producers to remove stunts involving animals from the film.”
