“Lost” star Dominic Monaghan believes “Swamp People” is nothing more than “shock TV” that glorifies the senseless killing of alligators — and it must be stopped.
Monaghan went off on Twitter moments ago about the History Channel show, writing, “If my hero Steve Irwin was around, those shows about killing alligators wouldn’t be on TV. I’m gonna stop them.”
Monaghan describes “Swamp People” as “death entertainment” that “continues to demonize reptiles as monsters and animals that are okay to torture and kill.”
He adds, “If alligator populations need to be controlled, I understand. But the act should not be glorified on TV. Disgusting.”
And according to Dominic, it’s all the History Channel’s fault — I blame the network, not the people.”
So, Swamp Nation, do you believe that Swamp People need to be shut down (dumb question right!?)? Take the poll over at TMZ.com.
Okay so it shock tv? How is this show any different than hunting shows or even the news? Its not I think people need to grow up this show not only about controlling the population of alligators but shows their culture and heritage. I think his argument that it demonize reptiles as monsters and animals and its okay to kill and torture them. Okay when has anyone on that show been seen doing anything to say tortue of an alligator is okay? I think he is trying to get his moment in the sun. I think its stupid all I can think is oh no! Another idiot with to much money and a cause…
