Timothy McVeigh mentions Survivor multiple times in letter to PETA.
In a reply to PETA’s request that Timothy McVeigh not eat meat for his final meal before he’s executed, McVeigh referred to Survivor a few times. According to The Washington Post, which calls McVeigh as a “fan” of the show, he wrote, “this is meat-eatin’ farm country; still, good job getting the attention to your cause (like protesting dead rats on ‘Survivor’.)” and “My one main problem with the veg movements is this: (besides the fact that I’m a libertarian) Where do you draw the line, and what standard is used to define that line? . . . What about grubs/worms/etc.? (that chick on ‘Survivor 2.’)”
