PETA, the radical left-wing animal-rights organization, trashed the late Steve Irwin on Friday, the same day the beloved zookeeper and conservationist, known by nickname "The Crocodile Hunter," would have turned 57.

Irwin was tragically killed in 2006 while filming a movie off the coast of Australia. He was stabbed in the heart by a stingray barb. His death shocked the world, and since then, Irwin has remained one of the most beloved figures in entertainment history.

So when PETA attacked Irwin — who was honored by Google in the daily "Google Doodle" — the internet once again seized on PETA.

What did PETA say?

What was the response?

By Saturday, more than 60,000 people had responded to PETA — the vast majority of which bashed the radical organization for pointlessly attacking Irwin.

Did PETA respond?

Yes, by doubling down.
