According to the Rolling Stone interview, Clay killed a kitten once. He should be in jail for that.
Though the barb was Triumph’s own, PETA went along thanks in part to comments that Aiken made in a recent Rolling Stonearticle. “I think cats are Satan,” Aiken said. “There’s nothing worse to me than a house cat. When I was about sixteen, I had a kitten and ran over it. Seeing that cat die, I actually think that its spirit has haunted me. I wasn’t afraid of cats before. But now they scare me to death.”
