By all accounts, native Houstonian Beyonce Knowles killed it at the Super Bowl halftime show Sunday. From the show to possibly the lights in the third quarter. But it's something else that was killed that had America's favorite killjoy riled up.

PETA came out and admonished Beyonce for her choice of outfit for the Super Bowl performance.

A PETA spokesperson told the New York Daily News this week, "We would take a bet that if Beyonce watched our video exposes, she'd probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully."

They might have a point. Would we complain if Beyonce decided to make a political statement and put the 'wardrobe malfunction' of the 2004 Super Bowl in Houston to shame by ditching much more than the jacket she tossed to the crowd at the start of the performance? Nope, not at all. Now if the wife or significant other is nearby there wouldn't be outright cheering, but that's one show that would never leave the DVR.

"Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyonce's Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score," the spokesperson continued.

To that I say 'Good job, good effort', but when was the last time you went to a clothing store and browsed the vegan section? Was there a first time?

More importantly, will this have an effect on Beyonce? This isn't the first time she's drawn the ire of PETA. They expressed similar disappointment in her wardrobe choice at the Presidential Inauguration by wearing a fur coat. Here's hoping she stands her ground, but just in case I might have to pick up tickets to her show at the Toyota Center this July. Who wouldn't want to be there when a political statement gets made?
