I think it is morally wrong to eat a pet fish just to put on a show. I really hope the guy eats the fish. I also hope the fish was treated for "Ich" or a bunch of other diseases. Serves him right and I hope he is not sensitive to "Copper" too....

You need to remember that fish and humans arent the same. The most effective and humane way to euthanize a fish is by temperature shock. This is either dropping a fish in boiling water or near frozen water. It is an instant death.

Frying pan is just disgusting. I dont care if he was drunk or not. I get drunk and dont fry up my wifes bamboo shrimp, they do look like they would be tasty though.

What this guy did was wrong and I hope he catches heck from peta.

I thought the most humane way was clove oil and vodka? Then the fish just falls asleep and doesn't wake up.

I think if he would have put it in water it at least wouldn't have been so bad. But he literally just threw it in the frying pan Poor fish

Wow i just logged on and caught this thread and now ill allow my opinion that will side with some others on here..

First off MTV is retarded and the producers probably had something to do with it (ex...scripting)

Second im a firm believer if your going to kill an animal you should eat/use it for your benefit and a believer that animals are on earth for our consumption/use (use can be taken many ways by me such as pet use which has led to longer lives..etc, its still use)

Third not all of us have seen the clip, nothing against the op but i dont like getting all worked up about something that ive never seen (and prob never will).

Those are my thoughts, but i figure i will stir the pot a little by saying, whats the diff. from this and taking a lobster from its tank and boiling it to eat? (lets say hypothetically the retard ate the fish he fried)

Keeping ANY living thing under your care has moral implications, IMO. Killing for sport WITHOUT a noble purpose (ie. eating it) is wrong no matter what it is, fish, deer, dog, doesnt matter. I'm not against people eating any type of animal.. The food chain goes on. But tossing an aquarium fish into a searing hot frying pan knowing you aren't going to eat it? bull honkey. 100%.
Yep!
