Over the top animal rights activists, frequently (but not always) members or fans of PETA, hence the name. Not all animal rights activists and members of PETA are extreme, but the term brands the most extreme animal rights activists.
The term PETA is used because many extreme animal rights terrorism had originated with the association, though most of PETA's members are not this bad, or extreme in general.
They constantly whine and bawl when an animal is not treated like a god, regardless of how the animal feels.
These people will easily spew generalizing statements and curses against a race for a simple mistreatment of animals by certain people of a certain race, or sometimes simply for preparing food or eating a different meat.
They are eager to protect a carefree animal, yet scoff and/or act indifferently around human beings.
Frequently seen on YouTube and elsewhere on the internet.
*This term is not intended to refer to or offend the mentally challenged or all PETA members, but it is difficult finding a name for people like this.
