Default WTF: PETA Member Traumatized By Pokémon, Sues Nintendo for Emotional Distress

This just in from the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot department..

In a recent blog post by Miranda Bryant (after being confronted by a lawyer, we learned we had the wrong name here), Miranda wrote that her teenage daughter received a Nintendo 3DS with Pokémon Y from a friend for her birthday. She continued by saying that she’d originally heard of Pokémon from her eldest daughter many years ago due to her wanting the LeafGreen version of the game.

According to her, she nearly bought the game for her daughter until she saw the connection between “Green Leaf” and marijuana. “My daughter may have become a serial killer or worse, an animal abuser, if I had bought her the game,” she recalled, “I considered suing Nintendo right then for causing me so much distress all those years ago. Are there even any Christians at Nintendo?”

Deciding to do some research about the new Pokémon games, she came across the recently aired Pokémon: Origins series which she described as “telling the story of the first computer games in the form of a Japanese cartoon.”
Curiosity quickly turned to outrage though as she witnessed a scene where “a small dog and her puppy are chased by some poachers and they end up cornering the baby dog.” It was then that she noticed the puppy had no skin on its head and its skull was visible which made it clear to her that these poachers must have abused these poor creatures for science experiments. She went on to describe that “the puppy eventually got away but had to listen as these vile men beat her mother to death.”

As poachers do, of course.

Sources also say that Bryant recently filed for divorce after catching her husband hiding in the bathroom on the toilet playing the game. He apparently told her to “fuck off” as he was about to catch a Shiny Mr. Mime.
Do not interrupt a player about to catch a Shiny Mr. Mime. He will fuck you up.

Hmm... as hilarious as all this is, looks like it may be a fake story.
Or rather, the daughter may have made shit up.
Something is off.... the same picture of a broken 3DS that the daughter posted was in a forum post from August of last year.
