This year, GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons went on an African vacation and shot an elephant. He recorded the whole thing on video.

There’s one scene where a swarm of “hungry” villagers rip flesh off the dead elephant.

All the villagers are wearing bright orange GoDaddy-branded hats, too.

Lots of people are upset about it, including PETA.

Parsons says he did it because the elephant was eating villagers’ crops. Opponents say there are non-lethal ways to solve that kind of problem.

We have no idea who’s right – just that the whole video is weird.

It’s definitely the kind of thing only a super rich CEO/founder of a privately-held company could get away with.
Watch if you like, but it’s pretty gross:
