PETA Criticizes Nintendo And 1-2-Switch For “Promoting Drinking Milk From Cows”

It looks like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) found another opportunity to criticize Nintendo’s products. The animal rights organization doesn’t approve of the Milk minigame found in 1-2-Switch. Its president, Ingrid Newkirk, has compiled a rather lengthy letter to express how she strongly believes that the cow-milking minigame “promotes drinking milk from cows.” She even offered to provide some actual footage of the “filthy conditions that cows endure on farms” for Nintendo to include in the Nintendo Switch party game. You can read the letter in its entirety below:

Video: Nintendo Minute Celebrates 200 Episodes This Week

Kit and Krysta have been hard at work with Nintendo Minute videos for a long time. This week’s video was more than fitting to look back on what the duo has accomplished over the years, because it was their 200th. This time, the pair didn’t look at any hardware or games from Nintendo. The focus for the 200th episode was simply reading your comments. Kit and Krysta, in the video’s description, summed things up well. They said that “we can’t wait to make more videos. Here’s to 200 more! Thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you next week”. We’ve included the video down below, so feel free to check it out.
