    Default PETA seeks to turn Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home into vegan eatery

    An animal rights group is taking a stab at buying the childhood home of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in an effort to transform the Ohio house into a vegan eatery.

    In a letter last week, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk asked a real estate agent about the Bath Township home and proposed making it a restaurant “to respond to the past with something positive,” the Akron Beacon Journal reported.


    Newkirk compared the way animals were slaughtered to the way Dahmer treated the 17 victims he was convicted of killing.


    “We are always looking forward to ways to draw attention to the violence inherent in the production of meat, eggs and milk — which involve processes that would shock all but the most hard-hearted person,” Newkirk wrote, according to the newspaper.


    “Dahmer’s old house gives us a way to evoke sympathy for these victims and to suggest that a life-affirming diet can change everything.”


    The 2,000-square-foot home on the outskirts of Akron — where Dahmer killed the first of his 17 victims in 1978 — has been on the market since last month.


    But a PETA spokesperson told the paper that the animal rights group is serious about the offer and is willing to take whatever steps necessary to open the new food joint. Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA, sent a letter proposing to buy Dahmer’s childhood home and turn it into a vegan restaurant.


    They even revealed a name for the restaurant and listed some of the items they would likely serve.

    The eatery, Eat for Life: Home Cooking, would offer entrees like chipotle barbecue tofu kebabs and a vegan creamy chicken casserole — made from faux-chicken and dairy-free sour cream.


    Richard Lubinski of Stouffer Realty, who is handling the sale of Dahmer’s former house, said he was not sure if the offer was serious or if the offer was part of a publicity stunt.


    Dahmer was notorious for raping, torturing and dismembering his victims. But the deal could help to remove a longtime stain in the community.


    “I think it’s great,” Lubinski told the paper. “If they want to buy it and repurpose it, that’s phenomenal.”

    It's also a way to evoke a lot of publicity. Also I'm pretty sure that a "life-affirming diet" can't really change the fact Jeffrey Dahmer murdered a fuck load of people.

    PETA can fuck right off. I think it's rather demented, that they compare the two. Why doesn't PETA buy it and turn it into a no-kill shelter, since PETA shelters like to euthanize the animals that go to their shelters.

    Could be wrong, but I think this kind of publicity is more likely to compel people to order a double hamburger out of spite than to make them interested in becoming vegan.

    Except for the fact that Dahmer ate some of his victims, so I'd probably stay away from any meat dishes in this joint anyway.

    I'm obviously hugely sick and twisted, but I thought this was funny. You know, awful and creepy, but yeah. I guess I have a dark sense of humour.

    STFU Peta. No way I'd eat in a joint that reminds me of Dahmer.
