Scott Disick

There's a lot to be said about Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy Scott Disick. He likes the color purple... a lot. He is overly flirtatious with the wrong people (Kourtney's sisters Kim and Khloe). And, he likes to kill animals. During Sunday night's episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Lord Disick, as he calls himself, decided to go on an alligator hunt. Rather than just go out to look at some of the animals in the beauty of nature, Disick shot and killed one. Later in the episode, he even skinned the dead gator. Well, people aren't responding too well to this murderous Kardashian scene.

"It takes a small man to kill an animal for fun," PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) tells Hollywood.com. "Although exotic animals are mostly unfamiliar to many people, the pain that they endure is real. With their slow metabolism, it can take hours for an alligator's heart to stop beating as they suffer and slowly die. Kind people understand that these intelligent, interesting animals—who fiercely protect their eggs and babies until their hatchlings are 3 years old—deserve to live unmolested with their families, rather than being hunted down in their homes and killed for a cheap human thrill. Animals deserve better from us, and our children deserve more compassionate, thoughtful role models."

While the Kardashian's rep and E! have yet to comment about the graphic scenes, Tori Spelling has taken to Twitter to share her thoughts on last night's episode. "Any1 else upset by 2nite ep of K&K Take Miami?" she wrote. "Taking alligators life on camera as a storyline&making a mockery of it sent me over the edge."

All of this so Disick could add to his collection of nonsensical shoes? People, what do you think about Disick's murderous stunt?

On a side note, Vienna Girardi, former star of The Bachelor and ex-fiancee of one Jake Pavelka, went on the hunt with Disick — but that's another story on its own.
