Meet Kendall Jones. This 19 year old cheerleader from Texas is hunting wildlife in Africa for sport. :(

“Kendall Jones is an American born hunter who has entered the continent and has been hunting African wildlife under the facade of conservation. She has publicly stated that she hopes to have a television hunting show and she is using endangered and helpless African animals as a stepping to further her popularity on social media platforms.

She has already recieved much protest, peaceful or otherwise from a wide variety of people from all over the world on her social profiles, and has, on those platforms, visibly scoffed and shaken off those protests, claiming that protestors are misinformed, or simply the ‘sheep’ to her ‘lion’ morals.

With enough support globally we can take a step in the right direction with regards to animal conservation, and help put an end to practices such as these, in hopes of conserving what precious little is left of our natural world.”

Please sign and reblog!

I hope she dies

1. She donates the meat from these animals to villages that have little to no food.

2. They pay thousands of dollars to hunt here, most of which goes to conservation efforts.

3. She doesn’t hunt anything with ivory.

4. Some of the animals have been tranquilized for conservation efforts.

5. She’s not the only person who does this, so stopping her does absolutely nothing but good try.

6. The people that live near where she hunts are thanful for her and want her and others to hunt there.

7. She isn’t hunting (killing) anything endangered.

Besides the fact you and others are blindly beliving something without checking first, there is something I take issue with the most. Your immediate response to see this (false) information about this girl, is to wish for her death. I cannot even begin to describe how many levels of not okay and disgusting that is. I love animals too, and I gladly will support efforts that will preserve endangered species as well as efforts done to protect animals that are abused and neglected, PEACEFUL efforts! Not ones that make you no better than a killer. Wishing for death on someone is not okay! We should fight to protect and preserve animals through diplomatic and peaceful means and PROSECUTE those who break the law by abusing animals and poaching endangered species.

If several pieces of information on the issue wasn’t woefully inaccurate about the girl then I wouldn’t even be commenting. However the op is wrong about the girl as is everyone believing and spreading this misinformation, I acknowledge well meaning intentions from my fellow animal lovers, but guys no. Stop spreading misinformation and believing everything you read. FACT CHECK AND RESEARCH BEFORE YOU BLINDLY BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ ON TUMBLR!

Please stop writing off people who are calling this out as “wrong”, and actually REALLY look into it. A lot of people who have stated that she isn’t doing anything illegal, have looked into this, so please, just read more on it before deciding the other side is wrong.

Look, like it or not, what she is doing bottom line, is not illegal.  She is not a poacher.  You can get angry all you like, but at the end of the day she still hasn’t done anything illegal like some claim.  

Now if you are anti-hunting in general, then this is something different that is a different issue than dealing with poaching.  What do you people think you are doing?  I have seen death threats thrown at her, people screaming they wish for her to die, people screaming they wish she was hunted down and shot like she was an animal, people sending her rape threats, and sending her harassing messages and bullying her-calling her all sorts of disgusting names that I’m not even going to mention, several of them which are downright sexist.  How is this helping animals you wish to save?  How is this going to get people to see your viewpoint of hunting being wrong?  Because you people blowing up on her, she has garnered FAR MORE SUPPORT in response to the enormous blacklash and harassment she received.  People will not look at animal rights activist and see it as a cause to support or join, they’ll just see crazy hateful VIOLENT people and turn away and not listen!  YOU ARE DOING DAMAGE TO THE ANIMAL RIGHTS CAUSE! CAN YOU NOT SEE THAT?! If you can’t see how disgusting and hypocritical this toxic and hateful behavior is, then I implore you to at least REALIZE how damaging to the cause you claim to fight for is when you do things like this! By spreading misinformation, not fully researching, jumping on a hate bandwagon, sending her death threats, WISHING death and rape on this girl, and calling her all sorts of sexist slurs isn’t going to win you any points, favors, or supporters.  If any of you are animal rights activists who don’t agree with any support of this cheerleader, then PLEASE at the very least call out people you see who do nasty things like this!  You should not condone something like this in the animal rights cause!

In closing…while the op is misinformed, they at least aren’t wishing death upon this girl. I understand your intentions op, so thank you for caring about animals and wanting to do something to protect them, not wishing death upon this girl; even if you are incorrect about the facts on her. Wishing death on someone is not okay and is not something anyone on this website should subscribe too. Sending her hate, calling her all sorts of nasty names, harassing her, sending her rape and death threats…NO! DO. NOT. DO. THIS. EVER! Especially when you don’t have all the facts.

Let me take a second to talk about these things. I found them while looking for makeup for my friends Kanaya cosplay and holycrap are they amazing. These are lip and eye liner, these pencils are a two in one deal- three in one if you want to use it as a lipstick.

Oh and the best part? You get all twelve colors for $5.21. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is. You can get them here. <3
