BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The crab billboard controversy is heating up again in Maryland.

PETA is now planning to put a second billboard up in downtown Baltimore.

The new billboard reads, “Why so crabby? Letting others live might just save your life.”

It’s aimed at those who criticized the organization’s original billboard which showed a crab saying, “I’m me – not meat. See the individual. Go vegan.”

After the initial billboard went up, Jimmy’s Seafood hit back with a billboard of their own, which read “SteaMEd crabs. Here to stay. Get famous.”

  1. I’m totally on board with this billboard. Consuming animals is one of the surest ways to get a number of awful disease from heart disease to high cholesterol. Why not spare these animals from needlessly suffering — and spare yourself from suffering later on — by going vegan today?

  2. Craig Shapiro says:

    Ha! Score another one for PETA! C’mon, Baltimore, show some heart.

  3. Kim Marie says:

    YES, this response is so on point! We need more compassion, not killing, people.

  4. Jennofur OConnor says:

    Absolutely! Is it really too much to ask people to think about WHO is on their plate, not what?

  5. Crabs are delicious. PETA is a domestic terrorist organization.
