I don't know if this is true or not, but I got this from another board:

"PETA: Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Dumps on Clay Aiken in New PETA Pro-Neutering Ad

"Triumph chose to make Clay Aiken the target of his humor in the ad, and PETA didn’t object because Aiken recently told Rolling Stone, “I think cats are Satan. There’s nothing worse to me than a house cat. When I was about 16, I had a kitten and ran over it.” PETA deals with dozens of cases of cruelty to cats every week and knows firsthand how damaging statements like this can be—impressionable kids often mimic what their “idols” do. Aiken never responded when PETA wrote to him."

I saw an interview where Aiken said that. He seemed to not feel so bad about hurting that kitten when he was interviewed. It disgusted me. Aiken may be talented but a great human being he isn't.
I just found his web site and posted a pretty mean message! I know it probably won't mean a thing, but it makes me feel better! Judy F

I remember watching another different interview where he also mentions his fear of cats. IIRC, he did not intentionally run over his kitten it was an accident. He would not get another cat after that event.

That being said, I would not consider a short quotation taken out of context as absolute truth nor would I make rash judgments about someone for the same.

No, he's a ***, and I don't mean Cat.

I'm with you Rona in that, to go out of his way to be mean seems vastly different than the rest of his life choices. I wonder what the truth is.

Well it does mean something when you do. I know because of his anti-cat statements his music won't get airplay on Cat Galaxy. For those who have yet to see what it is all about, go to www.catgalaxymedia.com.
No, he did in fact says cats were Satan and he did mention his dislike of cats. I saw an interview with him when he said that.
