Mama was none too happy with her portrayal as an animal murderer.
Recently, PETA released a flash imitation of Majesco's popular title, Cooking Mama, portraying Mama as a ruthless turkey slayer.
According to PETA, Cooking Mama condones the slaughtering of animals for food, and thus the manner in which animals bred for consumption are kept. PETA states the game is "no longer…quite so innocent" when a person stops to think about the "horrific abuses" animals being used for meals are subjected to.
PETA's creation, Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals, depicts the slaughter of turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner and an exaggeration of the preparation. Between each completed level, PETA gives information about the treatment from life until death of turkeys used for slaughtering, along with propaganda videos.
Earlier today Majesco issued a formal rebuttal to PETA's creation with the fictional "Mama" herself as the spokesperson. She points out her latest title, Cooking Mama World kitchen, not only includes dishes with meat but features many vegetarian options as well. While highlighting some specific vegetarian dishes offered she joked, "I would never put rat in my Ratatouille."
As of yet, there has been no further response from PETA over Mama's statements.
